    Now, I do believe I owe y'all a P-I-M-P suit...

    Your eyes aren't deceiving you--those pants don't have the overcheck that the jacket and vest do. Yes, I'm sure they're part of the set. It's not the first time I've seen this on vintage Brionis (I've even seen an example where the overcheck stops at the seat of the trousers...)

    If anyone could enlighten me to the history of these mismatched pants, I'd love to hear it. Anyways, this thing is baller AF.

    Ticket pocket, patch pockets on the back of the trousers, gorgeous handmade buttonholes, sporting lapel, everything handworked but the very obvious pick stitching...

    Superb shape, save dust and wrinkles.

    I usually ignore Sanyo because it's all over the place and seems like a tricky flip for us less informed, but this one seemed recentish.

    :lol: Trust me... regardless of how much you like certain songs, when you are forced to listen to them on a continuous loop, it is tantamount to Chinese water torture.

    Do they look more like a funnel or a triangle?

    Midday find on what's probably the busiest day of the week for this place. Saw it from at least 30 feet away.

    Hope this post is not out of place here. So sorry in advance it it annoys anyone.

    I'd like to thank all those who came in and helped nudge me into the sock purchase. I needed the support to go through with it and you guys were there in my time of need and hesitation.

    Also, I'd like to say that I'm doing quite well with the whole thrift/flip thing thanks entirely to this thread. The knowledge and advice its provided me has really helped supplement my income as well as improved my own personal purchases. Its time I give something back.

    So if anyone is interested I'm setting aside half the sock hoard to anyone from the thread who would like some. Here is the deal:
    • I think I should limit everyone to 6 pairs so all who want some can have a chance. If there are extras I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it.
    • Your cost is my cost ($4.50/pr.) plus whatever each individual thinks is fair above that. If its zero, thats fine. Do what ever you feel is fair and there will be no judgement on my part.
    • Purchaser covers whatever it costs to ship to your local. My zip is 08861.
    PM me with your requests and I'll try to get them all out by this weekend. (which means Monday) Oh and there are only 2 choices, Blue/Charcoal and Maroon/Cream, there are more of the Maroon/Cream than the Blue/Charcoal. I'll post a few pics shortly, they're still in boxes in my car.
