    Thanks! Ha, I think it's my body that's the optical illusion, actually. I have an unreasonably long torso and the jacket is definitely a "long" so that might be it.

    Quit picking on PayPal. I love those guys. Whenever they freeze my account, it's always for a good reason that had previously escaped my notice.

    They freeze my account after every payment. All my money is always pending. It makes me nervous.

    Well, not that recent, but briefcase-related thrift / eBay finds nonetheless. NEITHER IS AVAILABLE.

    1. Black leather top-frame briefcase by Papworth Travel Goods:

    ^ My wife bought this one for me at the OXFAM on Gloucester St. in London for £14 in 2008.

    2. Brown vintage top-frame briefcase by the English Luggage Corporation, LTD:

    ^ I bought this one last summer off of eBay for < $40 shipped.

    That Papworth is sweet looking, would love to cross it with the color of the ELC.

    Mine is still doing that too. EBay opened up my selling limits, but PayPal is still treating me like a Nigerian Prince.

    Went today at lunch... NADA. I've been striking out left and right recently. I'm hoping when I finally get to hit several stores this weekend I'll FINALLY find something brag-worthy again. It's just making me sad, especially when DM7 is pulling in whole clothing stores worth of stuff.

    But I do have reason to smile... The Canali tux came from dahl5yankees on eBay and the jacket fits like a glove without alterations! [​IMG]

    Looks totally badass too. Now I just need a black-tie event.

    Perhaps we should make Post #30,000 a black tie affair for this thread.

    someone should take the point and make 30K the "fit pic central" post for everyone who posts on here. your pic has to be 75% or better thrifted clothing. could be fun. maybe have Spoo run a poll/tournament.

    I'm glad your experience has been positive. :)

    It annoys me that they emailed saying it was "random" when it clearly was not. Like I said, they fixed it when I called in, but I have never been a problem.



    What do other services charge? Is it less than 4%?

    So what you're saying is that you want to have an online male fashion show judged by a man named "Spoo"?

    Dwolla charges you a 25 cent fee (not percent...a fraction of a dollar cents) for any payment received over $10...period. 25 cents no matter what. It rules.

    Wow. Do they have any sort of "protection" like paypal does?
