    Edit: Left behind a Lemaire x UNIQLO button up (didn't see any sold results on Ebay), Gant by Michael Bastian shirt, RLPL shirt ($30 and tag punched through the very fine fabric), Florsheim Imperials (non V-Cleat, $35), Gucci Horsebits (beat, $35), possibly-Ostrich Italian Florsheims. How bad did I fuck up?

    Also, anyone see the new Tom Ford movie? It's...certainly something.

    99.999999% sure it's Cifonelli cuz Cifonelli only makes bespoke and Hermes Su Mesura, they don't even make their own RTW line. First Nervesa (top 5 most under rated manufacturers in the world without question), then Caruso, and now it's Partenopea. Cifonelli makes some of the best bespoke in the world. I say the only spots that cost more are probably Rubinacci, Caraceni, and Bijan. Bijan is by far the most although its not totally 100% bespoke, they fit you and then I believe you select your manufacturer of choice (Caruso, D'Avenza, Mabro, Isaia, Brioni, and Partenopea), but Bijan (RIP) started out at Huntsman so he wasn't just some dick head with a marketing scheme to make the most expensive shit, he put in his time. Bijan suiting has a base price of 25k. Hell their ties start at $1200. But they sorta have to charge that much, the Bijan property on Rodeo is the most expensive piece of land in the entire country. When he passed they sold it for 122 million and now just pay rent there. It costs 19k per square foot and its a double lot 2 story on Rodeo drive. (bigger than Gucci, Prada, LV, Hermes, RL, and Brooks. It's really unbelievable....but so was everything he did. Having Rolls make a limited run model of Bijan Yellow Phantom #/5, not to mention his 3 separate Bugattis. His son Nick, is about a year younger than me, he now operates the shop, as well the Bugattis, not bad for 28.

    Got a men's body form/mannequin at Goodwill. FINALLY! I should have bought one a few years ago. Hoping it helps my sales.
    A couple quick pics showing a J.Press tweed I found last week.

    Yar, appologioes for the simpleton nature of my post, I was in a rush. I found this months ago and did not get to post until now & did so without elaborating. The faux hand stitch (with perfect "v" pattern on the back side) had me skeptical as well. The fabric tag seemed off a bit as the legit ones that I have seen differ in terms of wording & placement.




    Just a buck so I could care less.

    The kicker is that when I was at the same thrift a pair of near new (worn once or twice only) $700 Fiorentini & Baker "Endless" boots was sitting on a rack among a ton of shit shoes. Price: $5

    This is when that style was still in season & available for full list at Barneys. The kicker is that this thrift was in a more run down area (whose inhabitants who would not know of, let alone be able to afford, such brands/designers) so I was baffled as to who the hell would donate such a quality pair of boots.

    Needless to say they sold a week later for almost $400.

    So I'll take the $1 hit gladly.

    I'd bet on Cifonelli as well. Made in France, and did find one other tag. Realized I never posted any pics of the actual suit - will do that a bit later, along with a few other things I grabbed today.

    Was reading up on the cost of said suit - starting point is around $10k; top end is about $35k. Only saw one on ebay, sold for $4k but it had a scarf lining and mine does not.

    Generally not a fan of the MacNeil's (maybe because I only ever see them in ugly pebble grain) but those are damn nice.

    These were my Small Business Saturday deal I'd been waiting on for a good while. New(ish) with a bit of shelf wear and came with bags. Made by good ol' Mr. Green.

    "$28"...lol. Anyone know who makes these?

    Haven't taken a picture of a scarf in a long time. I accidentally made it look like the scarf is running away. I don't look at scarves as often as I should. This is proof of that.

    No content tag, but it's soft. At least some ca$h if not 100%.

    Does this label look familiar to you guys? Looks like it says "Inoizl" or something.

    Close to there.

    I have found some odd ball shit with value to it at that place.

    You know when you flip a toaster (and an incomplete one at that) for $600 you are finding some crazy weird stuffs.
