    They're just not terribly exciting in here with the other stuff people pull. I pick these up all the time. Put it on eBay. You'll make $60-75 bucks. Not too shabby.

    Others may chime in, but for me it's the photos. This needs a steaming, some lighting and a mannequinn. I can't see the fabric quality, color or pattern and would need to see the interior label (these give the customers a chubby, trust me...)

    Being that the Phoenix Open is here this week, a like new, Zero Restriction: REVERSIBLE Half-Sleeve waterproof Splash Gear in Camel/Black Fairway Check (large) (available)
    Took a little bit of looking to find the maker, first thought it was 2R logo, then found it was ZR.

    Despite what the 80's movie says, they don't really come to life at night.

    That's why I just have the torso with the wood piece at the top. Even if it comes to life the best it can do is hobble around on its base in which case the wooden top will fall off thus alerting me to the situation.

    I usually wait for Jos. A Bank Buy One Get Two Free sale. 3 ceder pairs for $25 (and you can stack coupons, like a $30 off $50 purchase). Picked up 6 pairs for $20+tax last time they had the sale
