    nah, it's just that Bijan is total crap. Luckily, it looks like it might fit me. Oh, alright, I'll be a gentleman and take it off your hands for cost price. But only this once.

    Not teribly expensive, but nice enough I thought someone here might want it for spring. I'm not looking to get rich off this.

    I found some shoes also.

    Someone paid AE to have these re-crafted and they've never been worn. I don't get it.

    I posted these last spring and really wanted to make them work, but they’re just a little too short for me. I figured I’d give you guys a chance at them before they go on eBay.

    Nice pickups. I've learnt my lesson with French Cuff shirts (aka dont buy them anymore as they are always too long) and the chest is a little big. Nice shirt though!

    So I should or shouldn't pick up the Alain figarets for flipping? They were a normal size, in excellent to nwot condition, and 10-13 each.

    Well, just damn! I drove down to check out the Unique thrift on Gallows Rd. It sounds as if I would have had a better time at Nordies than at Unique. I picked up a measly lower end Hickey-Freeman Collection sport coat (fused :fu: ), a cashmere/wool 70/30 blend scarf (Blue!) and a pair of Levis 518 Juniors/Superlow/Skinny for SWMBO. They look fine! Otherwise, it was a disappointing trip. I was hoping for better. Again, very little in Small and every shoe in stock had a square toe so I'm SOL as usual.

    They kept making announcements that coats, sweaters and jackets were half price. I thought my $6.99 H-F would ring at $3.50 but they had different ideas of what a jacket was. I tried to explain but... :brick: it was no good. I bought it anyway. Nothing picworthy.

    I don't know if anyone else has had luck at Unique but for an hour's drive, I think I'll pass from now on.

    I found two (!!!) pairs of flat front Zanellas today. These things actually exist.

    Also, I know some folks like Orvis quite a bit on here. Anyone interested in a thick flannel button down with MOP buttons (XL)? If so, hit me up on the PMs.
