    Okay I actually got these on Ebay but there cool frames, HUGO BOSS by Carrera, I had my optometrist put in my perscription with a brown gradient lens... the frames were like $60... not such a deal.... and the lenses cost me around 250.... Pretty slick.

    Reversible Lacoste Vintage jacket. I doubt that it could be fake... who fakes a reversible jacket? love it, either side is pretty damn cool. got it for $10

    Saw these at the Value Village... they were my size but didn't know the brand. Came home and looked it up, they sell for like $800 so I got back in the car and went to get em. They are truly incredible pants... they charged me $13

    Ben Sherman zip-up, they charged me $8

    This Kangol was $1.

    I'm a huge fan of Victorinox, there stuff is fantastic.... this was a bit high priced at $10, but I'm big on the brand, and it's a perfect fit, nice cool feeling material also.

    Found this a year ago... can't miss the Victorinox at the thrift stores... easy to spot the elbow patches.... think this was $8
    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Here is the Versace tie I found today, it is so ridiculously soft I've never felt anything like it.... $5
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Love this Lacoste, very preppy. nice mother of pearl buttons, did some research, its authentic. $7
    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Still not too crazy about this Hugo Boss, but it was cheap. $6 or so....
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    This Timberland Weathergear shirt has some beautiful buttons, and... my favourite, a pen pocket.... great for school... the collar is super stiff as well, which I sorta like. $10
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And just for fun, I'm a habs fan, play some ice hockey as well, so couldn't pass these up for $8.00
    They have got to be from the late 80's or so, probably worn by team/team staff?

    Thats a little creepy. Id stop communicating with him entirely. Seriously.

    Not to bring this back up, but my ebay buyer who says his package did not show up even that USPS tracking says it did, lost his ebay dispute and is now threatening to sue me in Colorado small claims court. I have been though a number of small claims cases (all local) so not a big deal, but does anyone have experience in Colorado or with ebay buyers suing out of state sellers? It seems comical, but who knows. I am pretty sure most small claims lawsuits have to be filed in the state of the defendant. If any has experience with this, can you shoot me a PM as I have a few questions. Thanks very much!!

    It all depends on date and label really, Austin Reed once owned Chester Barrie.

    Some of their stuff can still fetch reasonable returns, as can be seen HERE

    I have some Austin Reed Super 110s to list, when I get

    Man this thread moved fast lately! Great finds so far, guys!

    I headed out today and had some nice pickups

    - Recent Zegna Trofeo checkered sportcoat. 40 R. Made in Italy. Side vented. Up for grabs!
    - Fairly recent (2000) Adrian Jules checkered sportcoat. Approx 44-46 R. Side vented. Also up for grabs.
    - Four gorgeous custom framed canvas Monet prints. Gotta find some wall space for these at home.

    Also grabbed what seemed like a really nice espresso machine. Really solid. Made in Italy. Called the Proteo Grande. After some research, it seems they were sold at Starbucks and haven't had the best reviews. Looks like I'll be bringing this back. Ugh. I've been jonsin for a espresso machine too. First one I've seen thus far, and this is coming from a guy who does regular sweeps through the home/electronics sections.

    The trench is Brooks Brothers. I have it listed here on the Forum (not sure how to cross-link to my own listings.... sorry). I was asking $150, but I'm open to offers.

    This particular Austin Reed says "Made in England." I suspect it's a few years old -- maybe 10 or so, based on the logo in the lining. I understand they're not necessarily the pinnacle of quality or demand, but it fits me well, looks pretty good and the price was right.

    With all the sleezebags that seem to be infesting eBay now...me personally I'd rather work out a deal with someone on here then pay eBay on the off chance I may get a couple bucks more.

    Just my .02

    Interesting, until how long ago? I've never seen anything that looked to be vintage Austin Reed. Maybe it's harder to come by here in the states?
