    Cotton dockers: I may be interested in the plaid 44r sport coat if you're interested in getting rid of it.

    I've found a couple recent Brioni Super 150's suits. They feel absolutely amazing. Sadly they've both found new homes. I really regret selling one of them. :(

    I found a Super 150s Belvest too. Gorgeous suit with MOP buttons. I think Antirabbit ended up with that one.


    Nice finds! I'd keep vising that store to see if the pants for that Kiton make their way out. You never know.Does it have a thift store tag that you can judge the time it was put out (dated, color coded, etc). That way you could tell if it was sitting there forever or not to figure out your chances in finding the pants.


    I'm pretty sure any Polo (regardless of the Polo line) sweater with a large bear knit into the sweater has a good amount of value to it. I think you could get at least $100-$150 for it. Nice find, but be careful selling it. ;)

    From what I've seen on the 'bay, any 90s era vintage RL bear knit sweaters sell like hotcakes, though the price range varies (from lows in the high $100s to highs in the $1500s (!!!), that still doesn't hurt at all), so you should be good. Anyone feel free to correct me if this is wrong.

    ^ Not just anything with a bear, i cannot value this one as it is Polo sport.
    I honestly find it odd that has the polo sport tag, looks completely authentic.
    Give it a try on ebay

    yeah that polo bear sweater is worth a lot of money. Here's what I learned selling mine: Set a buy it now price, set it really high, like $500-800. Make it INSTANT PAYMENT REQUIRED/ CONFIRMED ADDRESS REQUIRED. Make it a 3-5 day listing. If it doesn't sell at that price, reduce it 10%, relist it until somebody buys it. You want to make it instant payment required because 99% of the people bidding on these things never pay for them, or if they do, they don't have a confirmed address or some other sort of fraud.

    And whatever you do, DON'T SELL IT OFF EBAY. If somebody messages you on Ebay with an offer, and wants to buy it off ebay, tell them to send you a postal money order or to kiss your ass.

    Soooo excited to do an epic day of thrifting in MN....on the way up, I hit the North Face outlet got a $400.00 Heathen shell for $39.00 and a 3 in one jacket that is normally $380.00 also for $39.00. Pretty happy with those.

    Found some Alden full-strap tassel loafers a few months ago but I just can't make them work for me. Size 10, fit more like a 10.5, good condition. Willing to trade for an 11 of comparable quality (doesn't have to be tassel or a loafer at all).

    These do look like they have been resoled once.

    Happy Turkey Day (yes, I'm doing this five minutes before we eat. I have problems).

    Dude, seriously. Screw Black Friday. I'll be having a multicolored pinstripe and/or windowpane, navy blue, and charcoal grey Friday of my own, hopefully!!

    Real, from about 1995. However, I can't see much more than that from the pics... Its not so interesting, you might only wind up with $25 or so on the bay.

    if there are a market for these sweaters, they can be bootlegged so easily. Heck this one is already made in China :p

    I have a feeling I'm about to learn the hard way.

    Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Hopefully no one went up a size.
