    Semi-intoxicated E-purchase last night... Err, this morning. [​IMG]

    Listing was up for less than 30 minutes. Need to cop more wool Zingas for Winter!


    Funny story: I have been looking at this same tie for almost a year, but every one that's been listed has been for like $75-90+. Guess it was finally my time.[​IMG]

    Forgot the store link as some pointed out.

    I also have a few personal pieces I'm looking to part with. Mostly winter/fall stuff in a Medium/Slim Medium size. Things like a Sawyer of Napa shearling jacket, a Paul Stuart japanese trench, that Hickey Freeman blazer with the pinup girls all over it, and some other things suited for winter. If there's any interest in those just throw me a PM and I'll get some pictures and measurements to y'all after work today.

    It would be cool to see other members jump in and help out, or simply brag their rides, or their thrifted efforts.

    Life has a way of forcing one's self to make difficult decisions. Parting with valued possessions is often more of a necessity than a choice.

    I've found maybe 15 pairs of beautiful wool pants in the last week including my first ever brioni find but not a single matching jacket. Someone either has a whole bunch of orphans or these are just wool trousers.

    Are these reverse orphan? Only 7$ and I believe I could wear them just as trousers.
