    Ha! Hello competition! :fence: I tried selling that Armani on eBay with little to no interest. I couldn't even sell it at .99 cents.. twice! More power to you if you can sell it for something :laugh: How often do you go thrifting?

    XD Damn you for not coming to me with your Armani (I like most Armani lines)! ...I shudder to ask what it was and what size. *sweatdrop*

    Post #20 says Caruso. It's a little convoluted in the thread, but I think it refers to their Italian suits generally, not the GF line specifically.


    You've had some great hauls lately, so the addiction is par for the course. Some of the NoVa fellas were talking about this earlier, but selling is the worst fuel for the fire - who doesn't want to make money?

    ok, I'll play in the thrift-pics game. All thrifted (except V-cleat eBay Florsheim imperials): BB shirt, Harris Tweed, Santorelli trou, E. Marinella tie.

    @Mr. Lookngr8: Pants are a bit on the baggy side, but the overall is good. :)

    I have the issue of balancing the fit of the pants vs. the comfort of the family jewels while sitting. Add that to the spare tire that has been added with age....you can't recapture the slim fit look of youth.:confused:

    Thanks for the feedback (I'm sure there's more to come, heh), + or - !

    Still a bit shy on this picture sharing stuff but I gotta just suck it up and just...go. This what I wore to church today; I may change jackets for my son's piano recital this afternoon. It's real-world, as opposed to something I dreamt up for the pic.


    Yes, I am perennially gaining and losing the same 20. Ugh.

    Any of you, when it comes down to "as pure of a thrifted/discount store/outlet clearance outfit as possible" find it a bit limiting? You have a few favorites or go-to staples that you didn't thrift...take those out, it reduces the combinations.

    Still working on the bench made RL's, but progress so far:

    Comments? What should I use to get the color back to even on the toes or it is what it is?

    These are C&J, right?

    Actually, you can, they're completely detachable.

    Can't imagine why any woman (these are women's shoes) would want them. MAybe it's a British thing. Or RL thing.

    Whenever I see an English shoe on a big dainite sole, I always think this.
