    Of course, any extra money is nice too.

    Sometimes it takes a while. Relist a couple times then throw it onto a fixed price good-till-it-sells

    Found this BALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLER Mark Shale jacket. Didn't know anything about Mark Shale, but this thing was too awesome to leave. Looks like it's an upscale shop in Chicago. Pictures don't do this thing justice. The color is amazing and it is amazingly soft...it feels softer than some 100% cashmere jackets I've felt - 85/15 wool cashmere, 100% baby's ass. Side vented, natural shoulder, ticket pocket. Only bummer: It's gihugemungous on me - 46XL (I think. 24" P2P 34.5" BOC). Really wish this fit me. Available at cost + ship, but waiting to see if it works for some dudes who gets priority.

    I don't know, but wish I did. JM doesn't get much love, usually for good reason, but some of their stuff, I think, is fairly nice. Some of their Italian-made shoes are good, I think, and vintage US-made Aristocrafts are as good as anything Nettleton or Florsheim ever put out. Hard to flip, though.

    Been wearing my blue suede Johnston and Murphy gumsole boots for months...got them on super discount, and they're like one of my favorite pairs of shoes.

    As they say "First time Long time". My posts are being "held by moderator" since I have not posted pics yet.

    Found John Lobb, buckle loafer, size 11.5 pretty much like new. They are pretty rediculous and don't understand why people give stuff like this away.

    Does anyone know anything about Polo RL made in USA suits? Label looks like this:

    [​IMG]


    I picked up two suits like this and they are pretty sick. One is a lightgray birdseye, double-vented, with a ticket pocket and side tabs on the pants. I love it!

    On another note, any opinions on this for the ebay listing pic? This is one of the Polo RL suits (did I mention these suits are awesome?). I don't have a mannequin.
