    A) That shit's dope.

    B) You might want to consider omitting your plans for items on here. I did it when I was new too, but it wears people down. A simple "available" is more than sufficient to get PMs, and 'Bay completeds are pretty much the go-to resource for that avenue.

    Again, I did it too when I was as new as you are. Just tryna' show you the way.

    Fair enough, edited down. It is hard (for me) to tell with specialty items like this though. I suspect someone will want it, ideally as more than the costume Goodwill was selling it as, but there isn't anything directly comparable that a quick ebay completed listing search unveiled.

    Edit: I guess this is pretty similar: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Princeton-A...881511?hash=item280499d227:g:ssMAAOSwyQtVuo0p One data point is hard to extrapolate from, though.

    That "one data point" is capnwes... so listen to it.


    Thrift bros: when do you throw in the towel and return something? Grabbed an oxxford suit today, thinking that the tiny moth nibbles on the trousers probably weren't a dealbreaker. Somehow, I missed the bigass (~2/3 dime) hole on the bottom of the jacket right when I got home... [​IMG]


    Doesn't fit me; destined elsewhere.

    Only about 25 into it. Fish or cut bait?

    Yeah, mine had a lot of interest, but it was incredibly large. Tons of people asking me if I had more in other sizes. Yours is way cooler, and seems to be a much more popular size. it will do great. A solid grab, that I would have copped 1000 times out of 1000, regardless of condition.

    @drlivingston or @capnwes or anyone else, do you what AE model is basically the Strand, minus the scrolled toe broguing? Everything else is the same.

    Or do you mean it has all the broguing other then the toe medallion?

    If so, that might be the McAllister

    Never heard of this brand but there's a lot of hand work on it, made by Caruso, when I google this it looks like it's sold a lot in Japan
