    Just about had a heart attack with this guy. Ralph Lauren Purple Label French cuff in a 16.5. No retailers within a couple hundred miles of me stock RLPL, I hadn't been holding out much hope of finding them. This shirt is completely pristine, absolutely no signs of wear, I wish so badly that it would fit.

    Also picked up my first Etro, wacky as hell but kind of cool. Size 42

    Passed up a Corneliani shirt - very recent, had those wrinkles from bad starching/ironing. Do those come out? Also left a white Pal Zileri shirt and a cool BD Baggies oxford that were the victims of neck sweat stains.

    I may have wasted money on this one. I thought I'd read somewhere about the (Polo - not Polo Jeans) flag sweaters being rather valuable. Good call?

    WTF, you just blew up one of the best unknown thrifting spots around. Now hmmurdock's basement is just going to be flipper central. THANKS, ASS.

    Not obsessive...but clearly not a guy with a two year old running around his house.


    No chance...I've got that place on lockdown. Literally. :hide:

    I had the good fortune of being given a Boxster to drive for a couple of months last fall. The first day back in the Buick, I was heckled by the recovering drunks hanging out in the parking lot, smoking cigarettes (the rehab center is also on the premises): "Where's the Porsche?" they shouted, among other things. I think I was wearing an Oxxford suit that day, which didn't help matters. Sally drunks knowing what car you drive--maybe that's God's way of telling me I go to thrift stores too much.

    Score! I think it was you that sold me that very recent (dated 2008) Oxxford that originated from that same shop in Pittsburgh.


    Speaking of the Scirocco, she may come out of hibernation next week. Forecast is saying upper 60's to 70's for late next week. Got tabs today. :D

    Anyone ever see that SNL episode where Jay Mohr imitates Christopher Walken and asks why people aren't calling into the show?

    [In his best Chris Walken:] ocooney: Why aren't you PMing? I saw your post about the trousers. They were really nice. I'd love to trade. I PMed you. But you're not PMing. Why aren't you PMing?

    (Maybe it's not as funny to other people, but I was laughing my ass off thinking about it.)

    Wow... That jacket is AWESOME. [​IMG]




    Nice find! If y'all see anything in a 40-42, especially lighter spring / summer blazers I'd love to see them. I was about to buy a nice Lubiam white w/ blue check cotton blazer off B&S but the sleeves were just too short and not enough material to extend. I've been trying Yoox but I find it very hard to use.




    WOW. [​IMG]

    Too many PMs, too little time perhaps. I wish those pants were a size larger. But of course I do not need them.

    This makes me want to get more into the trading scene. Those suits look awesome.

    As for my recent activity, I will have to post my suit find of a lifetime. I never in a million years expected to come across a $2,000+ suit that is actually recent... and in MY SIZE!! I'm super pumped about it, and will post pictures at some point because I really want to figure out exactly how recent it is.

    Lol, This happens to me quite often, but I compare it to finding a $20 bill in a pair of pants I haven't worn for a year.
