    Awesome, thanks guys! Also, lol @jkidd, yeah, definitely no "$40" price tag and chinese characters thank god, haha. Phew, that's a relief, though I'm still going to scurtinize my kops more closely as a result of the scare.

    Anyone else care to chime in, either way?

    Nothing good for me.

    Close call on a very recent corneliani SC, but had significant damage. Samuelsohn suit with poop stained pants. Couple of non vented canali propostas suits, huge as well. Worn out shirts from D&G, Armani, am I getting picky now I don't even pick up Ike Behars? lol.

    Finally found two nice Paul Stuart SC (pants might have been there also but didnt look) in my size, 36S today at the SA, but of course they were beat to crap and had tons of moth holes....

    Hello All,

    Longtime lurker, first time poster. I really enjoy this thread and seeing what all you crazy kids pick up, and I've learned a lot along the way. I apologize in advance for the UFO-sighting like quality of these photos.

    Found my first Kiton today:

    [​IMG]

    In continuing the topic of higher thrift store prices, this bad boy was $30.00.
    [​IMG]

    Navy windowpane, ticket pocket, surgeon's cuffs, etc.

    Unfortunately...

    [​IMG]

    Looks like there's a matching pair of pants somewhere out there. I searched through the men's, the women's, children's, everything. No match. But this thing fits like a glove and I think the windowpane will allow me to wear it as a sportcoat.

    I normally don't purchase things out of my size, but I know there are some fellows bigger than me on this thread and these two PRL Made in Italy sportcoats were too nice to leave behind (both 44 L)

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Both are in very good condition and have horn buttons, ticket pockets and double vents.

    First one is a brown glen plaid with a red and green overcheck. 100% silk.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Second is 50/50 Cotton and Cashmere. White & Light Grey/Brown. Very soft.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And one for Mr. Spoo, if he is so inclined to take the case:

    [​IMG]

    No idea if this is a vest or part of a suit, if it's real or fake, or if it's for a man or a woman (the buttons (satin? covered) are on the left)

    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Interesting trades considered!

    I found these cuff-links today. They look to be some type of cast metal.

    Also, a shameless plug for a new Tumblr i started.

    I'd pay $30 all day and then some for that.

    Welcome to the forum!

    And that's a great way to kick off, too. Like Jkidd said, at $30, totally worth it. It's downright gorgeous. :slayer:

    Hey, just wondering. What are the chances of getting quality items (like those discuss on SF, etc..) when buying by the Kilo? Do you get quality stuff from this guy?

    Nice Cotton Dockers!

    Calling Nataku, or anyone else [​IMG]. I was hoping to get some info on this. I assume its not as great as the Polo RL, but is there anything special/rare about it?
