    Just one clothing find for me today: a black watch Purple Label shirt, in time for the holidays.

    Found some jazz albums too, including an original issue Blue Note ("The Eminent Jay Jay Johnson"; not sure if it's worth anything but I'm liking it) and a great Charlie Byrd bossa nova album.

    ^^ Beautiful shirt!

    Score on the Eminent Jay Jay Johnson LP!!

    Most OG pressing Blue Note LPs are worth something. Looks like this is an easy $200+ album. Nice score!

    A good online reference for record values is Popsike. They catalog most eBay record auctions (description, pics, date and price) ending at over $30. Goes back to 2005-ish.

    Oh, and those jeans look like the real deal to me.

    Boo.......

    If anyone is interested: Saks in Prudential Center in Boston has a button down shirt by Brunello Cucinelli (pink gingham) for around $120 ($200 with 40% off on top of that). Size is XXL. Original price was something around $450. This is not as ultra discounted as some other people's findings, but I thought someone might want it.

    Thanks for the tip! That site looks like a terrific reference, and I'll definitely bookmark it. I'll probably just keep the album since I don't know enough about vinyl to grade its condition accurately for an eBay auction.

    By the way Nataku: I was looking at your eBay auctions and it looks like you accidentally listed an outsole measurement for the Nakamichi stereo :)

    Most people who know about stereos know that outsole measurement is not an accurate predictor of fit. But people ask for the measurement anyway.
