1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Great idea for a thread! Coincidently, I can contribute with a very recent purchase. Here's what I bought last night:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=320037459764

    I originally was only going to bid the minimum. I decided last night that it was enough of a deal that it deserved another bid. I pulled myself away from the Mets game (like I'm doing now) and placed the winning bid with 2 seconds left on the auction. I think I actually beat a sniper because the bid before mine was placed only four seconds earlier and six seconds before the end of the auction. Anyway, this is my first suit purchase on ebay (not counting a tuxedo that's still hanging unaltered in my closet). What do you guys think of this?

    mm: I think that suit will look even better in reality.

    drizz: that tweed looks like it will be a good one. In my experience, the clothes look better in hand.

    homme: great tie!

    gdl23: That is one great-looking SC! Size? Material? 2B? 3B? (As for the other clothes, see below)

    sygyzy: Yes, there is, but it's in streetwear and denim. Technically, gdl should have posted the others there.

    I stole this Altea. Not much to lose, it was $1.04.

    This vintage Pendleton wool 3/4 coat was only $8. Raglan sleeves.

    Sorry, I didn't get that this thread was exclusive of casual wear. I removed the pics.

    As for the coat, it is a 54L, 3B, double-vented and the fabric is a blend: 40% silk, 35% linen and 25% Super 100's wool.

    Aportnoy, I didn't realize you wear clothes with your shoes.[​IMG]

    That is probably the nicest vest I have ever seen - vest porn?
