    Speaking as an unofficial personal account/investor, I wouldn't recommend being addicted to investing all that money into assets that depreciate if not treated as short term investments. They aren't classic cars, Honus Wagner cards, or Berkshire IPOs....these fuckers are pumped out daily and change yearly to make sure people keep buying.

    and trust me I know where your coming from, I'm an addict myself, I keep a personal collection that I like with no intention on moving even though I never wear them, I just like a tie rack full of crispy fucking silk...but the other stuff...

    Picked up another Black Fleece item. This time I got to it before someone could steal the sleeve buttons out of the pocket like I've been seeing.

    If you find flat front Zanellas with no piss stains, you found something as rare as a unicorn.

    Most Zanellas are pleated with piss stains on the inside, sometimes more :uhoh: . The FF ones are so rare that they are called unicorns I believe.

    Pretty solid first post. In the last 2.5 years, I've never found anything Hermes except ties.
    Dude, you need to start consigning with all the consignors. you will never catch up.

    Just out of curiosity, are you guys planning on reselling those eventually? That seems like a panic attack in a closet.
