    There is a setting where you can automatically block bidders with a certain number (your choice) of unpaid item strikes in the last certain amount of time(your choice). I will see if I can find where that is and repost.

    Went back to the GW where I picked up the "Zegna" FABRIC Fit-Wel suits, dollar day on blue tags, they were putting out 9 pairs of multi-pleated, cuffed Zanella's, plus 3 Nordstrams, waist 36 in various colors, all same owner, wish they were flat fronts, left behind.

    But did pick up a few things,

    A nice Robert Graham, excellent condition, pretty nice looking shirt, it's a slim medium, but might be a keeper:

    Picked up a like new Zegna spread collar blue check "french cuff" that has buttons but I guess you can cut the buttons off and use the holes, both of these items had cleaning tags with the same name, there was another Zegna same owner that was really nice but had a fabric run right in the front:

    Tuesday I picked up all the Fit-Wel suits and 2 sport coats but going through the pants, found the orphan pants to one of what I thought, and very could be used as a sport coat, now it's a suit:

    Very nice grey with purple stripe in Dormeuil 15 point fabric

    Finally, always looking for that RL bear sweater, found a RL flag sweater, very heavy, 100% cotton, great shape, and help in dating the sweater is appreciated, blue tag day, picked up for $1.00:

    The Dormeuil is beautiful - that purple strip is a stunner - especially since you wouldn't see it outside of 6 feet or so. Nice work! Does it fit you?

    I'm still a noob, but I wouldn't cut those buttons off. I think that shirt is made that way intentionally, so you can use it either as a french cuff or button cuff shirt. There's a name for that which is escaping me. Most don't have the double-fold french cuff look, though, so that's a bit unusual (again, to the noob's eye).

    That Robert Graham actually isn't all that bad. With the right blazer (Read: velvet), it'd make a decent "streetwear" outfit.

    Yeah, I concur with the sentiment that the Zegna shirt is quite fake.

    next time you find dollar zanellas in your waist size, you might want to consider picking them up for yourself. i had the pleats removed from some trousers a couple years back. cost around $30-40 or so, and they turned out great. $1 + $30 = $31 flat front zanellas, not a bad bargain if you ask me.

    Unfortunately no, they are too big. I grabbed what is now six suits and one sport coat because all the fabrics were top notch, just trying to figure out the best way to pass them on!
