    No, just old and not that valuable. I would have bought it myself.


    Late, but real.



    Dude! Remember that one.

    Saw - and left - a dark heathered blue Canali suit today, jacket and pants, because the jacket had multiple pinhead holes all over it. Razzafrazza. Not much else to report. But I was SO looking forward to posting pictures of that suit today! Until I saw the first...and second...and....so on, holes. Put back. Grumble. :/

    Happy belated birthday @Nataku ! sorry I missed it. Haven't had much time to post lately but I just got caught up on the thread, great stuff on that borrelli suit story! Thumbs all around.

    I think I probably just would have offered to double or triple his money on the pants -- basically reward his generosity.

    But it sounds like it worked out in the end..

    Except that someone claimed the suit before I could. That part blows.

    Just gotta echo everyone else, that @Reosymes and @colorvision serendipity story was one of the best things I've read on here (other than some of Klobbers bodily-function-related tales) since it's been going (and I've read from the start). Awesome stuff!

    Thrift Karma to all!
