    Depends, for yourself? For resale?

    To resell? Definitely not -- without a doubt.

    For your own use? It depends? Is there something special about it over the tons of other Canali suits out there other than being new? Does it fit you perfectly or will be perfect with minimal alterations? Is there $300 in the pocket?

    You're asking the wrong crowd. very biased value range, heavily influenced by shopping at goodwills and the like. Some folks would say 25% retail is a good deal. To this crowd, you're getting hosed.

    Also, fuck anyone who says shit is theirs when it is still sitting on the rack. If you aren't physically holding it or have it in a cart, it is now mine. This isn't civilization, it's a thrift store.

    I learned on the mean streets of the local goodwill outlet

    Yo, that hat is doooooope!

    Too bad I've hopped the portal again. No way to receive packages here where there are no roads, we don't need roads.

    That reminds me, special thanks again to all my homies who sent big boxes of awesome: Ace Face, My Main Man, the aforementioned Spoo and Tex Jake...will try to honor with fit pics if the bros can be obliged. :slayer::slayer::slayer:

    Please refer to this video for more de-tails:

    @capnwes what do you use to restore the luster to the leather?

    I picked up an SAB leather and linen suitcase earlier this year and the leather trim is dry. I've done a little bit with Obenauf's HDLP but it's done nothing compared to what you've put on display here.

    Feel free to PM if it's not appropriate for the thread.

    That's like the guy that just hops onto the rack about 5 shirts in front of me. The thrifting tribunal says that's punishable by death

    Picked up the same one last winter. The guy who was the high bidder on this at one point in the auction asked if I would meet him so he try it on before he went any higher (which I think was already $100, at that point). I met him at a CVS, which happens to be right next to Savers, and watched him come from Savers to meet me. Just thought it was funny that, had he been there a few weeks earlier, he may have picked it up for peanuts.
