    Is it lined? I have one with that label that is only 1/4 lined, I really like it.

    I think it is partially lined I will have to check when I get home. It is super soft, wish it was a few sizes bigger.

    Picked up a nice Tom James - Bespoke Holland & Sherry SC today. Photos will be posted later. I will have to measure it, but I think its around a size 60 or so. Doesn't somone have a spreadsheet of members with sizes and what they are looking for? I know I came across it before.

    Open the sheet up. On the very bottom click the "created by google docs" and then it will be added to your gmail document account. From there you can edit it. I don't think that many people use it anymore to be honest. It was only for the Thrifters Trading Post Thread and that thread is pretty dead. Would be nice if we had a spreadsheet link like that at the top stickied to the B&S for sale section though....

    For anyone in Miami, the Marshall's at midtown is insane right now. RLPL Cashmere sweaters, Samuelson, Varvatos, Jack Spade bags and clothing, Polo RL suits, Brioni shirts. Still expensive, mostly 35-50% Retail.

    I grabbed an awesome Rag & Bone leather jacket for $355

    Picked up a few ties. First Brooks Brothers Wool I've ever seen and thought the Burberrys was pretty cool. Both for sale/trade.

    Burberrys of London - 3.75"

    I always pick up T&A shirts at thrift store prices. They are a pretty easy flip on eBay and go for some decent money. The 3 solid strip shirts should sell like hot cakes.

    Stopped by a Goodwill while running errands today. 30 minutes later and all I found was a Canali tie so ugly that I couldn't face the cashier to purchase the item, and I am reasonably sure that he is from the ABVI side of the house( ie: he's blind). That's a good sign you should put the item back on the rack and go home.
