    Re: St. Michael... Not really a thing. It's the own brand of a British dept store called Marks and Spencer. Some older stuff was made in England, I've got a nice vintage M&S suit.

    I doubt it has much flip value.

    I do like the knit Hans posted though.

    Not really, it's from Marks & Spencer I believe. I normally pass it all, but this was heavy, wool, no holes, and a great color. I thought someone might want a nice cardigan just for the house/weekend home. :)

    Ahh, beat me by a second. You're right, it really doesn't have flip value as a brand. As with anything though, there are likely exceptions. I'm looking at a Lauren Ralph Lauren cardigan on ebay right now. Nearly always a pass, but it would be something I'd pick up if I had seen it. Instead, I'm on the other side of the transaction wondering whether I should pay that much for LRL. :satisfied:

    Ha ha. I wondered whose turf I was on. Not at all my regular haunt, I was way out of my range just Google mapping it for a quick stop before work on a new site today. Did you also leave behind that Versace Versus all silk ugly son-a-bitch? I got a BB Golden Fleece suit, some Gieves & Hawks, Armani windowpane tweed, etc. Looked like the leftovers of a big donation. Don't leave us in suspense! I wanna see what was there yesterday! Is the single Brioni tie I found an indicator of what you made off with?

    Anybody a size 12? I have a pair of AE Maxfields that need a heel repair sometime soon that I'm willing to give to a worthwhile home, you pay for the price of shipping :slayer:
