    I don't understand why these are selling like crazy, but I didn't want to miss the party!

    Searching for some new Brioni shirts and found some by the obnoxious cousins Bruno and Bianco.

    When I went to law school out of state, I had to move all of my stuff, wife, dog and two cars. You can rent a little dolly to pull a car behind the Uhaul truck. My drove the other car.

    For my last move, we packed everything. I hired some local moving guys (not a moving company) to load up a Uhaul, they rode with me and unloaded. I paid the guys $15-20 an hour and it was well worth it!

    Since you are moving out of state, you could still get some movers to help load the Truck, then you can drive it and have some other guys at your new home to unload it.

    Ugh. There was a Bianco Brioni linen suit at a Goodwill I frequent for a week or two. It was close enough to fitting me that I would have bought it just so i wouldn't get excited for a second every time I flipped to the label, but there were a few small holes in the arms.

    I've sold a few of those. The best were two SF Giants ones, which I picked up and sold during the 2012 World Series. I don't know who the hell donates stuff while the team is in the World Series, but my wallet thanks whoever they were for those two $90 sales.[​IMG]

    I don't think it's weird to have 20 or 30 dress shirts, especially if you have to wear one every day. Of those, I'd say at least 5 should be staple light blue, and 5 should be staple white.

    I've got no idea what I picked up here other than it seems decent - nice and I'm guessing it belonged to some lawyer in Firenze? I'm a novice in briefcases, how did I do?

    Really cool LB linen / cotton 5 button car coat? I'm not really sure what this qualifies as.

    Sounds about right. I think that's probably about what I have -- maybe 35. But, I do wear one 5-6 days a week. I tend to stain mine before they wear out. There are some things that the Oxy Clean Thrift system won't get out. I think I have 3 light blue and two darker blue whatever it is called. French blue?

    Reminds me of the scene in Mr. Robot (anyone watching that show, btw? it's incredible.) where Tyrell Wellick is getting ready and they show his perfectly organized closet as almost an homage to American Psycho.
