    It's hard to spoiler on my phone. PLUS, that is such a great look, it deserves to be posted again. Seriously, that is a great look and a great suit! I wish I could wear that. If I wore a 3 piece tweed suit, I would look like the Walrus from Alice in Wonderland.

    If it helps, this was a pair of men's pants. I assume they're on the older side.

    Huge Shoutout to Nataku! Would have never glanced at twice if not for his guide and then i only grabbed it because it was stuck in with the suits, and then put it back before I decided it was worth a chance for $3.

    Sold for $510 in less than 10 minutes.

    Vegas. There's always cheap flights to Vegas. Spoos point though on his store next year is a no brainer. Relatively cheap flights into NYC, places to stay, things to do.

    That's awesome, women's cowl neck? What are we looking at?

    @Koala-T really making me regret my self imposed ban.
    Also, to those of you posting your highly organized hoarding, I stopped buying at maybe 1% of what you have so I can catch up. If I had that much, I may have just sent it all off. I had a stack of mostly shirts about 4' high, I have maybe 200 ties, 50 suits, sport coats and jackets (total, not each), about 100prs of pants. When I'm done with that, I'll start shopping again in earnest.

    Holy shit!!

    I had that lone pine in my cart and was ready to take it to a leather restoration place but my girlfriend talked me out of it. Let me know what the results are. I thought for the price I'd take on a project but I don't know enough about leather.

    Cross post from trade thread. Looking at you @Jompso
    Does anyone have something similar in a true sz 40 R, this fits a 41ish- maybe 42.

    I get inspired by seeing all the beautiful clothes you all find, then I come out of the consignment shop like:

    Yeah, I talked them down on the price(even thought it wasn't that bad to begin with and the budged pretty easily) and figured it was worth a gamble. Lone Pine is primo stuff.
