The Phoenix NM Last Call got a large shipment of shirts in about 2-3 weeks ago. Lots of Brioni, Lorenzini and a reasonable selection of Kiton. And the seller is from the area.

I don't recall any 60/40 Kiton blends however.

It looks just like a Kiton I have: the buttons and collar are exact matches. I would bet that the 60/40 blend line is left over from another one of many machine-gun postings.

Some ofthe negative feedback is hilarious. "Ordered shirt, received fruit plates" is my favorite.

(Seriously) could be 60/40 cotton/linen. Maybe the seller doesn't come across stuff like this often and didn't fully comprehend...

To strike out on a tangent . . .

Some of the best eBay feedback comes from andy46477 who seems to leave random feedback.

Some recent examples:

"Corn on the cob is nice, because the cob never shouts GET ME BEER, WOMAN!"

Left for user Becky8:

"I'm originally from Japan. Becky8 rhymes with vegetable drawer in Japanese."


Some folks are left bewildered:

"Rotilla is a GOOD name for my wife. Don't call her "Hey, STUMPY" again. EVER

Reply by hammerjammer: I don't understand why this was left in the feedback section for me???

Some get the joke:

"You are Barry Manelow! I know you are! I can hear you singing!"\t\t

Reply by whoami: I need u today O Andy. U came & u left w/o paying.

Guess who's bored at work today.

This is one of the funniest things I've seen on this board in quite a while (since that bit of "shoe porn" where someone -- J? -- brilliantly morphed the picture of a condom package onto a picture of the Lincoln shoe shine tin...). Thanks for the laugh.

You are right! Here's the correct link. The shirt went for $56.00 from bargainland_liquidation, so someone must think it's genuine!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

BTW: The other link is to a suit that I was going to post on the sales Thread. It seems like it might be a decent deal for someone. Super 120's Loro Piana fabric, though I've never heard of Silvio Bresciani! Has anyone reading this ever heard of him?

As I write this the suit is bid to $29.99 with 15 hours left. It might be worth it.

Perhaps he apprenticed with Sergio Georgini.
