    Wow, regardless if there was a shill bidder or not, the other guy still bid that high, which is insane.

    No photos yet, but on my lunch break I found a few nice SCs. Will post pics later this afternoon.


    Beige Loro Piana Cashmere - I believe it was for Barneys
    Nice Classic Blue w/ gold button Burberry DB with 2 tone logo buttons.
    Another Classic Blue w/ gold button Chester Barrie for Saks
    And a nice dark brown Harris tweed.

    And to think I wasn't going to venture out today.

    At $80 you may as well keep it. Folks who shop EBAY want better deals than that (you'd either lose money or -if lucky- break even). I'm assuming, of course, the tie was actually no more than $120 at some point (on EBAY, I'd expect to see it sell for $50-$60).

    ^^ Yeah, that's pretty much it. Unless it's some crazy limited edition or super rare print run, they won't fetch much over the $60 mark. After all, it's just a tie. Silk shirts on the other hand.......

    Ran across a lovely Brioni cashmere overcoat today in my size.

    Some considerable moth damage to one sleeve. Couple of holes and a couple of tracks.

    Should I buy it? Anyone try a reweaving service like Without A Trace?

    Reweaving works well, but more damaged an item is, the more it costs to repair. If you get that overcoat, be prepared to invest up to $200 for it to get it in working shape. Brioni overcoat second hand is worth a pretty penny but ask yourself if you saw one on eBay for $200 whether you would bid or not (given the seller indicated it was recently reweaved).

    Payed a little more than usual. The Guy Rovers are made in Italy and are decent shirts. Everything is up fro trade or sale. If your dropping me a PM, I really don't have the time to take measurements, sorry.

    Yes, many G&H suits are made right here in Rochester and the presence of the factory store has led me to maybe 8-10 of them over the last month. They are on the same level as the Hickey Freeman Collection suits - fully canvassed and typically very nice fabrics. On eBay I would be looking for $80-110 all day and maybe more for a desirable size and/or color.

    Not much again. Lunchtime got a NWT BB tie, stripes that I did not have, and a NWT BB Made in Scotland canary yellow shetland, medium but cut generously so it may fit. Otherwise it will go to one of my tradly brethren. Paid quite a bit more than usual. Oh well!

    Off the road from a long business trip. I stopped in a number of stores and purchased countless items, though maybe a handful would be of interest here on SF; the balance are just money-makers which is good enough for me. I will try to get pictures and sizes for stuff that would interest members. Off the top of my head:

    - Charcoal pinstrip Samuelsohn suit w/ Samuelsohn hanger (44)
    - Brooks Bros. Golden Fleece Dress shirts - like new or NWOT - 15.5 33. Great MOP buttons
    - J. Press Charcoal overcoat which is about a 40-44 or somewhere in there
    - NWT Incotex charcoal cords in sz. US 40 (I think) - from TJ Maxx

    Also seen at the TJ Maxx in Framingham, MA were 2 prs. of Kiton pants ($189) and some overpriced ties.
