    Thanks for the tag thebuddahman, I didn't know this thread existed. I've been selling bits and pieces on ebay for a while, but more than happy to sell & trade here cheaper - ebay can be such a pain in the arse.

    I won't have a lot of inventory at the moment, due to lack of space, but I've got a few bits ready to go.

    I'm of the same opinion as you - avoid ebay if possible! No fees, less hassle, and nice to see things being loved and enjoyed by fellow enthusiasts.

    Post up your stuff Nick...

    Hey guys

    Real life has taken over recently and I've not been thrifting much. What I have for sale is on eBay (criggershow is my seller name) and a few things are being listed tomorrow. Anything there is always available for a deal to anyone here.

    Guys,
    Great to see renewed interest!
    I think everyone prefers here than ebay...

    I'm currently almost 100% in buying, rather than sellin, so here's a list of what I'm interested in - all only high-quality, of course :)

    For myself:
    Sizes
    Jacket: 40/42 UK
    Trousers: 34/36W-32inseam (UK)
    Shirts:16/16,5 collars, 34in arms is usually too short, but depends on the manufacturer.
    Shoes: 45 EU / 10.5 or 11 UK (slightly wider models, but depends)

    -shoes and boots
    -staple suits, full canvas only, (SB - 2btn or 3/2, or DB); (I don't particulary care for charcoal, unless it's a really amazing suit)
    -classic shirts (solids, stripes, checks) in blue & white
    -patterned suits (pinstripe/chalkstripe, checks)
    -classic, but interesting suits/jackets - just get at me and I'll let you know smile.gif
    -staple trousers (wool)
    -excellent quality shoes, size 10,5 (slightly wider, but not necessarily)
    -accessories (I wear ties and pocket squares every day)
    -cashmere everything
    -leather or canvas/leather duffel bag (as big as possible)

    And for my girlfriend - sizes S/XS:
    -preppy style stuff (like what you'd get from Polo et al), in small sizes
    -maybe shoes (euro size 37/38)? Depends smile.gif
    -silk scarves
    -cashmere again

    I've recently moved to London. Happy to entertain trades or deals on any of the things I'm selling listed here and would love to do local deals.

    Great thread idea! I've found thrifting in London to be a bit crazy, but if I find anything interesting, I'll be sure to post it.
