    Anytime I see something I know I want and the opening bid is low I just shoot them an email asking and negotiate the price. Can get wonderful deals not waiting for the bidding to start.

    $150...make that $200+ easy if you waited, IMO. It took less then a week to sell same shoes in Black 11D (needing soles and heels). The profit paid for ones my size and a month worth of beers [​IMG] http://cgi.ebay.com/130660004819

    I know.... [​IMG]

    But seriously, I just forgot/got lazy. It's too much effort to go back through everything and get sizes. PM me for info on my consigner, and maybe you can get the sizes + specific details in a week or so.

    Hey all, first time poster and new to the thrift game (at least for clothes :D). Over the past month I have got:

    RLPL Blue Oxford Button Down
    RLPL Pink Oxford Button Down
    RLPL Purple Dress Shirt
    Alfani Fitted White Dress Shirt
    Tommy Hillfiger Purple Dress Shirt
    Robert Talbot White Dress Shirt
    Bachrach Tailored Suit
    Bachrach Tailored Orphaned Suit
    Express Black Polo

    All for under $30. It might not be the greatest items in the world but I think it's a great start and I like them. The only thing that does not fit is the Talbot. I know they are a little expensive so should I keep it and get it tailored (its huge in me) or just sell it?

    If anyone in LA has any interest....

    I found the unholy motherload of womens shoes.

    I'm talking 40+ pairs of Bruno Magli, Ferragamo Boutique, Prada...

    I can give you the location as long as you promise not to add this store into your rotation.... [​IMG]

    Haha no trolling. I needed a suit bad and that's what they had the fit. I like the express polo for so cheap, and the Armani was a noob buy.

    Who been had Zegna orphans? We have hungry mouths to feed! The store was closing and I didn't have much time to try to reunite them with their trouser brothers. Forgive the underexposed image, I did that to better represent the true colors. The Travel SC has to be seen and felt to be believed (50% cashmere).

    [​IMG]

    L to R (all Zegna): 46L mainline, 44L 15 milmil 15, 46L High Performance, 42 R Travel


    Nevertheless, there's some sick shit here, including my first milmil. These and a couple other very old pieces that I left must've come from the same gent and are from different size eras of his life. I wish he would've "donated" a similar collection of shoes, shirts, and ties... Two of them were tailored to a 46L, one is a 44 L, and the other is an elusive Zegna Travel with pen pockets and a zipper pocket that I'm going to have tailored to my size, so don't even bother PMing on it. In the pocket of the same Travel jacket is the first decent handrolled, silk pocket square I've ever found in a thrift.

    At the bottom is an pair of Orvis cords in 38 x 29.5 with a cuff of 1.5" if anyone wants them for cheap.

    Temper your enthusiasm......I have a suspicion that his "RLPL" = Ralph Lauren Polo. But maybe not.
