    So you're saying Spoo could sell it for what, about $200-225?

    Here are pics of the two shirts I picked up the other day. Both are available if, you know, you're so inclined.

    That seems way too high to me. If it's for you, maybe. If it's to flip, I would probably pass. I bought some santorelli pants from goodwill to sell (they went for $20) but they only cost me $4.

    The "goodwill reserve" in omaha sells ugly olive Burberry suits for $300, zegna soft SCs for $150, and well used beat up ferragmo shoes for $150 :facepalm:

    Here are some other santorelli suits. Who knows, maybe you could get $100 for it. But in my experience, you would be lucky to get your money back through flipping it.

    excerpt from above listing:

    Preowned, Brown plaid, 100% wool, 3 button. Pants are pleated front with no cuffs. The pants have a small stain near the crotch are and 2 larger stains on the thighs.

    The lining in the blazer is unsewn in the cuff area of one sleeve and has a few small holes under the armhole. It also has a couple small holes in the material under the arm. Please refer to pictures, sold as is.

    I think even Spoo couldn't get 19.95 for those, even AS IS.

    Hah, did not notice that :laugh: Edit: on a side note, I knew a guy who sold piss stained zenella pants for $25 (he showed the stain in the pictures, and mentioned it in the listing) I could not believe it.

    haha. who doesn't want pants with crotch stains!

    if this fit- I'd own it in a heartbeat. being that there is some risk in selling, I'm better off leaving it. I appreciate the feedback.

    Who makes Puccini menswear -- or what department store(s) sell it? Any comment on quality/where it fits on the thrifting food chain?

    I think their claim to fame was everything matched. Like Adult Garanimals. See it all the time here.

    I picked this BB trench up with a couple people both here and elsewhere in mind. It didn't work out for any of them, so I'm offering it up for cost + paltry time/gas fee + real shipping. Great condition, very nice looking jacket. Fully lined rain trench with belt. Would work for a 44 or smaller 46.

    P2P: 26
    Sleeves : 27 (~raglan)
    Length: 50

    Found a couple of large wheeled Hartmann tweed bags today (traditional, old school shape with four tiny wheels). Good shape, good price. Didn't pick them up, debating whether to get them.

    Lunch Thrift Zanella haul. Apparently this guy either fully disclothed himself to take a piss, or he wore adult diapers, I couldn't find a single lining stain.
    All are double pleated and cuffed. Split about 50/50 Sizes 33 and 34.
