    Thanks man! Yeah, I've been amazed at my luck lately, though I've got to slow down a bit as my house is starting to look like an open air flea market lol.

    Nice haul Andro!

    I picked these up today...posted in the Label thread, but it has been slow the last week. Any info on manufacture would be great. Also picked up a pair of Black Captoe Ferragamo 14D and Cole Haan Black Captoe 10D to clean up and flip. I like flipping shoes, a lot more fun in the cleaning/polishing then in shirts and suits.

    Same here. Awesome finds! You should see if you can find the donors name in any of those and send him a thank you card!

    Hello! I picked up this funny sweater in my size (small) the other day at a GW. It is 100% cotton and the tag reads: "Saks Fifth Avenue * New York, NY 10022 REAL CLOTHES." Aside from the great personal value I derive from wearing it and being ridiculous to bother my wife, how much do you think it would be worth if anything? Thanks! -M-

    That doesn't look like an "A" to me... It looks like a road going off into the distance. Still don't know whose logo it is, but that's another direction to look.

    Ha, funny thing is, I originally said "an A that looks like a road" in my original post, but later edited after thinking I was seeing things. Thanks.

    Just to clarify, I live about 200 miles from the BB clearance center in Garland, NC. So I will not be dropping by again for a while (until my next fishing trip). So no proxy available.

    I seem to remember that someone in the DT "Confessional Threak" saying something about stealing items and selling them on StyleForum.

    Knowing that Andro and I are in the same area is starting to make me supremely jealous. :D But seriously, that's a great day right there. :slayer:

    Today was the day that wasn't. Stopped by 4 different places. First time seeing Southwick in my size; inevitably, there were holes. (By the by, it was an awesome 3-roll-2 mid-weight glen check. *Sigh*)

    Picked up some BB 1818 Madison flat fronts in solid gray, so I thought I had finally closed that gap. But, forgetting they were suit separates, I picked up what was ultimately too small for me. (If you're a 32x30, they are available, much to my personal dismay :spam:)

    Thankfully, made up for it a bit by grabbing a ConAir clothing steamer. Needs a good cleaning, but other than that, glad to finally grab one!

    Also, I work right down the street from a BB Outlet (I think it's the one Dig is talking about). I'd be willing to proxy stuff for people, if their prices match the stuff at the clearance shop. I've never been there before, so I'll give a report tomorrow night.

    Soukoulis returns!

    Was about to suggest a thrift outing over the holidays, then I saw that you'd skipped town.

    :foo:
