No idea, not really saying it's anything at this point,

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.
I must come to one of your shows...
Yes! Found the perfect cardigan, I'm usually a M in Polo but it fits great

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.
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:
Multiple Zegna suits
Lots of Brioni stuff
Some Hermes shirts
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
Red Wing boots
Probably countless grail pieces that I didn't know are grails.
Quote:I think it is a thread first but i found one last year.this guy makes everything by hand himself apparently.rare find for sure.
your wife rocks
Just throwing it out there; I'm only a PM away if this happens again.
