    Thirft brag for 346. My default template has 149 on it, so either I forgot to change it, or I was feeling optimistic that day.

    Thrifted this Burberry tweed and got home to find I didn't notice a sleeve button was missing. I've tried ebay and amazon. I emailed Burberry and they no longer have this button available. Any other ideas for a replacement???

    Would you guys try to sell in this condition?
    Worth buying a full replacement set?

    Any other suggestions?

    some vintage jackets have 2 non-functional buttons at the sleeves. you could consider removing the 3rd button from the other sleeve and making sure they're all placed appropriately. addition by subtraction.

    That's a great idea. I didn't know there were two button sleeves.

    I'd try selling as-is and note the condition, maybe mentioning that the other sleeve's button can be removed and kept as a spare.

    Alternatively, put on a set of different buttons and sell the Burberry set as a separate item to recoup the cost. Doing that, I'd note that the buttons are not original in the SC ad.

    I have a bunch of billionaire items, but I had to wait for him to die first. Brioni, Bijan, Stefano Ricci, and Isaia mostly.

    I have a bunch of vintage Versace and Gucci stuff for sale. How can I tell if the Versace is "pre-death" and the Gucci from the Tom Ford era? I'd like to state that if true, but I don't want to misrepresent.

    Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere; please feel free to redirect me if so.

    Haaate that dog park. You ever run into that crackhead lady with three Scotty dogs? One of her jerk dogs attacked my girl, which led to a hurt back and like $500 in vet bills. We're so done with the dog park.

    I went to an estate sale this weekend for a definite millionaire and the clothing quality was so low. Beautiful Lake house with a boat storage building and shit quality clothes.

    Did you send him a counter-offer? Maybe $498?

    Any idea what happened here? I paid a month ago exactly lol and it looks like she mailed it to herself or do you think it got returned to her for some reason? Actually getting a response or customer service seems impossible.

    Since she is not answering, and to be honest I'm pretty fed up with it, do I need to open a not received case for every item in the order or is one case sufficient to protect my interests?
