    Very cool find man, I have only found Hermes ties, dress shirts. One of these puppies must have been a pretty penny. Wish it fit me. Reguardless with the hole, post that on ebay and watch the bidding war begin. Great find!

    +1 get it listed ASAP on ebay (even if you need to go back and add more pictures/info after) if you just want to flip it (and not try and trade it with someone here in the forum). 5 day listing will end it Sunday night around 9pm.(which is what you want). IMO thats one of the few items you can start at 99 cents / no reserve and not worry about. Nice pickup!

    Perhaps I shouldn't sully this forum with my pedestrian finds. But I will anyway.

    I found my first big-boy ties today. Nothing crazy at all, but they are my first folds of any kind:

    Time for a new avatar?

    And indeed, what size so we can all watch out for quality black polos for you.

    Uh, I'm not saying, but, well, which side of the fly is the button on?

    Zowie! They are sometimes called drop loops. Found most often these days on Oxxford trou. Nice grab. Do they look like custom or are they tagged like otr?

    I'm going with this after the 17th.

    Thanks guys. I go back tomorrow and will have my first opportunity to get into the specifics so I'm holding off on making any move until I know more about the policy. It just kills me that I have purged all things black from my wardrobe and suddenly, it becomes the primary color that I need.

    Much appreciated.

    ^Old old. I once left a Press Madras jacket with the exact shawl collar and then it got sold on the bay for over 100 bucks.:censored:

    I can imagine the AAAC Trad crowd coming to fisticuffs over that.

    This was the only tag:

    [​IMG]

    I left behind a pair of Burberry London khakis -- a very recent tag -- and large (probably 11.5 or so) black Bootmaster Tom Mcan wingtips that were in great shape (v cleat replaced with rubber heel, though). This was all from the same GW where I picked up those St Andrews trousers the other day, so perhaps I should go back again tomorrow.

    This is my first post on SF, and let me preface this by saying that I have read the majority of this thread. The information that I have accumulated has been invaluable. I have began to thrift pretty regularly over the last month and a 1/2 and have now completely filled my wardrobe. This post includes the highlights from my early attempts at thrifting. If anyone is interested in anything, let me know. A couple of things are already sold on eBay. Maybe I'll throw up some pics later if I can figure it out

    Suits:
    3 Armani Collezioni Two Button Suits 40R
    Giorgio Armani Le Collezioni DB Suit 40R
    HF Houndstooth Boardroom Suit
    HF Tux 40R
    Canali Proposta 3 Button Suit 52EU

    Sports Coats:
    HF Navy Blazer 44R
    Geives & Hawkes Houndstooth Wool Sports Coat 46L

    Shirts:
    Borrelli Napoli Dress Shirt
    Turnbull & Asser FC 16
    MTM Holland & Sherry Dress Shirt
    Aster Italy FC Dress Shirt?
    4 Zegna Button Downs
    A couple Gitman Button Downs
    3 Robert Grahams that went straight to the Bay
    RRL Workshirt
    Zegna Size 42 Tux Shirt

    Pants:
    Sold a few pairs, but I've only ended up keeping a pair of Incotex Inco Chinos

    Ties:
    Pink Striped Charvet
    Orange Striped Canali
    Solid Navy Stefano Ricci
    Turnbull & Asser Geometric
    Giorgio Armani

    Shoes:
    Pretty much new Brooks Brothers White Bucks
    Church's Tassel Loafers

    All that plus countless things not worthy of SF. This is just what I can remember off the top of my head. Its been a busy month
