    Brian's Ebay link is the best ever. I once tried to trade him a NWT suit for one of the barns but he wouldn't include free shipping so that was a deal breaker.

    Hey, but I bet he'd let you pick it up for free! Put it in your trunk and you're good to go.

    I will have to admit that Brian's barn inventory is much more extensive and better than my own.

    A couple of quick shots of todays loot. Loro Piana Horsey, Zegna for Dunhill Blazer and a Canali sportcoat. The ties are Brioni, Brioni, Brioni, Zegna (selvedge) and Ferragamo. The shirt is a nwt Boss for a definate flip. The horsey is my second and identical to the first, except for the size.

    I passed on a NWT Canali cord suit in Olive for $250 and NWT Barbera suit for about the same.

    Of interesting note I came across a very nice Paul Stuart dress shirt that was made in Poland. Did not spot any handwork, though the buttons were sewn on with a chickenfoot stitch :confused:

    Built this nice little light box and tried it out. Anyone have any suggestions for light placement? Used tissue paper for the sides but debating about changing it out for a different material. Had to try it out, so tossed a few items I thrifted today in it....

    Have not touched the shells yet, but they should clean up really really nice. Dibs goes to someone who has a pair of shells in a 7-7.5 to trade! There are 11D
    Other Allen Edmonds are a 8.5 EEE
    Canali and RLPL were 50 cents each (not 100% perfect condition so prob just going to turn the RLPL into my new "photo tie")

    I am a big Floyd fan too. Animals and Atom Heart Mother were my favorite LP's, Animals, in particular, was beyond great IMO. Wish You Were Here was a fine LP as well, Welcome to Machine probably my fave Floyd song.

    Ah the cardboard/tissue paper light box, works surprisingly well. Not sure what would work better than white tissue paper for the sides.

    Looks good. I think the lights are placed right.

    ^^I have a similar light box. You can also simply take it outside, which will give you all the light you need. The tissue will diffuse the light to prevent harsh shadows.

    Thrift store near me did some reorganizing and I found a couple things here that I'd love to pass on at cost +shipping.

    Borrelli handmade for Neiman Marcus 16/42 (little bit large for that tagged size, I can get some measurements up if anyone likes)

    NWT Hickey half lined navy blazer with Hickey-logo'd dark horn buttons 46R

    I have no need for these as they are not my size but I'd like to see them go to a good home. PM me for dibs.
