    Paid up at $40, but seemed like a good buy. The place also had 3 or 4 Edgar Pomeroy SCs and at least one suit from the same donor at similar prices. Will wait for half off day on those.

    Also had to pass on a Rotel rsx-972 due to no price tag; audiophiles should I be going back?

    So John Smedley is a thing? Passed recently on a sweater made in GB, nice piece, perhaps the very same you got...

    I mean I always see it sell for a descent amount on eBay. But if you see a Bobby in black this is an item for people who try to snag gear James Bond wears.

    I flippped a Barbour jacket for $700 after paying $365 the other day.

    Versace is real but ancient. Rotel is great stuff but the home theater receivers aren't worth as much as their other offerings. Not a huge loss.

    Nothing really clothing wise but haven't owned one of these little things in years so I'm excited to have one again (if it works):
