    You best believe that if it fit me, I would've already PMed you. But I'm a 38. Alas...

    I know we're supposed to be officially anti-flipping or somesuch, and of of course you should offer it to some lucky 40R from here, first, so you didn't hear this from me, but authentic Barracudas in good condition seem to go for a pretty penny on theBay, just FYI.

    WARNING!!!! These are NOT high end items, BUT I am very very happy to have thrifted them, hence bragging [​IMG] as they actually FIT me (and I've been looking for a similar tie for weeks now). WOOHOO

    I was under the impression that Steven Alan was brag-worthy, was I misinformed? I was happy to find the one item from them I've ever found (and since traded!) I actually really like that pattern, it's very old-school. There's OLD shirts from BB that looked like that, for example. Great summer wear IMO.

    My only finds this weekend were these not-very-brag-worthy items that I was nonetheless pleased to see in great condition, which is something of a rarity for me. Both available on the slim chance a lurking Trad might be interested.

    My biggest pass was actually a pretty cool "Notre Dame Athletic Department" labeled cotton sweater with knit-in ND logos. Since I went to ND I would totally rock that shit... but it was a size L :( Thought about throwing it on the bay but it seemed risky and random just for me to get a nostalgic kick out of it...

    Pendleton wool sweater L
    Arancraft Irish Wool cableknit sweater XXL might fit XL.

    This weekend I got a fairly large collection of hats, all from one store. One or two donors.

    Oops, I lied. It's the Napoli line, not sure how old that makes it (can anyone help estimate age?).OMG I want a suit like this [​IMG] A few teaser pics. Weird, no laps on the pockets??

    Great jacket. It looks as though your name is Brad and you're about to go hassle Michael J. Fox about something, or maybe challenge John Cusack to a downhill ski race... :laugh:

    Ok,after finding a pair of Bruno Maglis in my closet perfectly preserved, I realized I need to get some trades off before I buy new things. With that said, warning, massive influx of the stuff I've thrifted over the past two days (except for some of the ties, the Maglis, PS and PRL lumberjack). Also not pictured, a Seiko:slayer: gotta see if it can be repaired but if so I'll get pics up ASAP.

    Ready for the deluge?? I'm willing to make everything available for: some damn pants (nice chinos, khakis, slacks whatever in 29-30), some damn hats (those of you who know me know I feel the golf/driver caps, already PMing the ugly above with those), AN RLPL, Kiton, or equivalent suit (38r/s or 36 possibly)At this point I'm resigned to the fact I'll never find one in my size until I buy one new, and damnit I've been thrifting too long to not have one of these. Finally, some damn shoes.

    I am more than willing to give multiple items for one item, people that know me up here know I'll go extra lengths for things I want. Only thing Im likely dead set against giving away is the Southwick unless I can get another business appropriate suit. PM me for measurements, was not going to measure everything last night. Also if you'd like any other pics, I've luckily got my old roommates d80 at the moment.

    Oh, and don't mind my heater, we tried painting that a while ago and you can see that didn't work out to well with the heat lmao.

    Paul Smith London Made in Italy Suit. Got this before I left for Europe and forgot to post, got the jacket taken in a bit but the shoulders were too big and pants even bigger so I think I'm going to have to give it up) Available.
