    Can't a fella get something nice for his dad?

    Plus not really into the flipping business. Too much work.

    And further defense...I picked up a NWT Cucinelli. Could have easily flipped it for bank. Tried to tailor it, but just gave it to dads.

    And even more defense... I'm trying to get Spoo to sell half my stuff.

    You guys are mean.

    Anyways got no reply from Blamm :(

    Well... I just figured out that the nice Austin Reed grey flannel sportcoat I found is around a 42L (by trying it on).... Also the Gieves & Hawkes Bespoke DB navy pinstripe blazer is around a 42L... the cuffs are cut to be functional but there's no button holes or buttons, so I guess it was never finished? Both are available to people who actually wear a 42L [​IMG]

    Well, in the past it was only few of us who were jealous of Nataku and Mainy. Now many more of us. The more the merrier. Share the pain, you know :satisfied:

    I am constantly worried that will happen to me. Once or twice a week I reopen packages to double check.

    I'll note what it is on the box in a location that's easily scribbled over or labeled over... works pretty well to avoid that. I know some ebay sellers use inventory control numbers to associate their auctions with their inventory and write those numbers on the boxes - sometimes they even pack up right after taking photos & measurements of stuff. Don't like that method myself because it makes questions a PITA though.

    I have seen this. A rather large consignment on ebay does this and does not take out the items even to answer questions. They of course have a very liberal return policy, but still...

    +1 Andro. There's never a HR here in Des Moines, but I do get quite a few singles and doubles (things I can flip for $10 to $50.) After moving a handful of these, I can afford the nice $200+ PRL/BB Golden Fleece/Paul Stuart suits on B&S w/o having to pay anything out of pocket.

    We'll never get rich quick, but my wardrobe has seen an extensive upgrade the past 8 months! :slayer:

    A more accurate description is: saw "42L Kiton" --> PMed immediately --> looked at pic and mistook it for an orphan --> prematurely PM'd again saying I wasn't interested IF it was an orphan --> looked at pic again and responses from others eventually realizing it's probably not an orphan and is actually an SC --> became horrified --> wanted to shoot self --> cried.
