    Haha I'm beginning to realize how much I suck at this lol. Granted I'm 17, so I admittedly have much to learn from everyone here.

    We've all been there once. I remember that my first threat item was also a YSL blazer. I thought it was such a find because it is from the same brand as the cologne that I used - YSL La Nuit de L'Homme. I tried to sell it Craigslist and there were no takers. I remembered thinking that everyone's crazy because it's freaking YSL! Growing up wearing Polo and Tommy Hilfiger, I thought having a YSL item was a big deal, lol. I eventually tried to wear it around but it was 2 sizes too big, so I gave it to my friend, who was even smaller than I was so I just him, "it's YSL. It's a famous brand, so you should go tailor it until it fits." Ahhh...the good old days.

    Retrospective, I should cut those buttons off that blazer and sold those, I am sure those buttons with "YSL" engraving are worth more than the jacket.

    Some confessions
    Other stuff I wish I didn't kopped:
    Bunch of Hugo Boss stuff
    "Christian Dior" stuff
    "Armani" Exchange shirt, that I still wear
    Vintage Givenchy ties, made of polyester
    Armani Collezioni orphan jacket that way too small. Tried to have it tailor and the tailor looked as if I was stupid.

    After that I only thrifted items that fit me and passed on whatever that doesn't fit, some of the things that did not fit. Some of the stuff that I passed:
    BBGF suit
    Multiple Zegna suits
    Lots of Brioni stuff
    Some Hermes shirts
    Kiton shirt
    God knows how many Japanese denims (lived in a Japanese rich area)
    Gucci horsebits loafer (Saw 2 in great condition, just grabbed one because I thought I only need one pair of loafer)
    Dolce & Gabbana shirts
    Cartier shirt (could be fake)
    Countless AE shoes
    Countless Bally
    Red Wing boots
    Probably countless grail pieces that I didn't know are grails.
