    For me: multiple pairs of Vass before going MTO. Never would have had relatively low-risk access to them otherwise.

    this is a good thread.

    for last year the best item i bought hands down was actually a few things:


    rlpl drake navy pinstripe db suit.

    this was the bomb. superlative suit. i just adored it. unfortunately i had no reason for suits and also i am not a 42R anymore. so i sold it.


    rlpl flannel wool dark charcoal chalkstripe pants w sideadjusters (size 48 /32 slim)

    love this pants. most decadent pant i ever received. i bought it a size smaller just hoping to some day fit into it (because i didnt want to wear this fat) so i chanced buying a size 32. now it fits me like a model. i will have to tailor it one day (hem) so i can wear it to somewhere

    I'll add the other side. My best sale - a Glashutte Original Senator Panorama date & moon. Sold more quickly on B&S even though posted on TZ and Purists beforehand!

    Isaia navy linen suit, from Spoopoker. Fits me perfectly and I get compliments on it just about every time I wear it.

    First ever buy on B&S: Zegna Su Misura jacket that fits me like a glove without any alterations. Seen here:

    Shoes: 3 pairs of Grenson Rose collection shoes: light brown, dark brown, suede chocolate. I especially like this one:

    Overall, I can say I was pretty lucky buying from the forum. Only about 15%-20% of the items I didn't like.

    I was just able to buy whiskey and ravello longwings in my size a standard one for ~$1000 (one was new, one was worn twice).

    Honestly though, I like the Panta stuff the best, it was new, and its the first pieces from a line that has GREAT potential.
