    It cost me $180 to have the waist suppressed and to have the sleeves altered. Don't know what costs what. But I would guess $50-60 a sleeve. I live in San Francisco.

    Good question, one of these days I will stop in and find out. :embar: They have annual clearance events as well and I have never made those either.

    Did I do any better this time? Also, these will be for sale as well if anyone is interested.

    edit: Am I allowed to ask here what I should put as an asking price in Buy/Sell?

    NO...I kid, but seriously spend 5 minutes and do some research on completed ebay listings. It will really benefit you more in the long run to have an idea of what stuff will sells for before you buy it (and waist money) instead of just asking what you should list every item for after you buy it.

    And yes those are better, the BBGF is old tag, maybe $30-$40 on ebay and I find Harris Tweeds will sell for $40-50 easy and depending on the color/size and quality and sometimes more.

    Well, I found one E. Marinella at GW for $1.99. I was not familiar with this brand, so I left it, that same night Spoo posted his from Marshall's. Now, Imagine how I felt.

    I picked up this Levi's denim jacket today. I expect it to be vintage because it is Made in the U.S.A. and the new ones are Made in Bangladesh. I also know that some of these command a nice dollar, so I am hoping this is one of them. Is there a resident Levi's expert around?

    The denim and the lining are very heavy and warm.

    You need to find one with a red tag that reads LEVIS not Levis. Affectionately known by Levis collectors at the "Big E" Jacket, since all the letters look the same when capitalized except the E. Also look for real leather patch tags, instead of the ones made of card stock. You can still get $35-50 for yours.

    This is what you are looking for.

    Standard thrift price ($10-$30)? Definitely grab. I've never seen Brioni outerwear before.


    Wow! Awesome find! That's an easy $200.

    What do you think of Nat Nast silk shirts? I run into these constantly yet always leave them standing on the rack. It looks like Nat Nast falls into Robert Talbott / Robert Graham territory.

    Thanks, I appreciate that knowledge. It's my size so I was probably going to keep it anyway. I haven't worn a denim jacket since I was like 7 though so I am going to have try and figure out how to do it without looking like this...

    If you could let me know the details on the HF Outlet it would be greatly appreciated. We'll be in New York in early April (heading to Ithaca for the Cornell/Syracuse lacrosse game). I can start saving my money now.
