    Awesome finds!! Question for the experienced. What site do you recommend selling Savile Row SC's or suits, or the more rare or unique items you find?

    Yeah, that's what I figured. I was just wondering what the market was like on the bay for those types of things. I checked out some completed listings and those types of items are rare.

    Here are the measurements for this Brioni shirt. If you're a slim guy with long arms, this 14.5/35 shirt might be just what the doctor ordered. P2P it's 22.5". Make me an offer via PM if you're interested. Please see the detailed photos below to get a look at the fraying on the cuffs. Dig suggested that a tailor could reverse the cuffs. I don't know anything about that, so you're on your own to check it out. You can always wear it with the sleeves rolled up.

    Almost didn't go out today, glad I did. First stop:


    You are the reason I continue to go!! You continue to pull down awesome stuff week after week!

    I thought I was lucky today when I found a Brooks Brothers Maker shirt in my size that was NWT...

    Had a pretty nice haul today. Two Luciano Barbera 6x2's and two Gieves & Hawkes. All size 54EU, not my size so will be up in B&S soon. Only drawback is these were for a shorter guy. 28" inseam with about 3" to let out. Sorry for the craptastic iphone pics.

    Haha, yeah, I've had a hell of a run the last few weeks. It seriously just seems like a total crapshoot, as I'm not doing anything different than I was just a few months ago (well, aside maybe from going more frequently). Nice! Don't undervalue NWT stuff in your size. As lovely as my finds were, most will probably have to go unless the tailor can work some magic, since the sleeves are too short. So keep at it - just a few more days for tax write offs! haha.

    I've been in Colorado visiting the in-laws for the holidays and finally got out to the thrifts today. Well worth the effort, as I picked up two Caruso suits, two pair of near new Churchs and a gorgeous near new pair of suede Polo made in England full brogues. The shoes, unfortunately, were at consignment prices, but still well worth it.

    The Carusos will, hopefully, fit my son. The shoes are 9 Ds and will hit B&S when I get home next week. If I can figure out how to do it with my new iPad, I'll post a picture tonight.

    I use to pass these RG shirts up all the time till I saw some talk of them last week and the decent ebay prices [​IMG] Also added another Harris Tweed (1/2 lined perfect for summer or Florida). Got a few other (better) things but still need to get pictures taken and post them.
