    Are these the "compare at" prices that the marshall's tag sez or what you think is the resell/fleabay value?

    I've found a lot of those in album covers. I've found a lot of seeds too.

    Two interesting Zegna items:

    Sky Blue 100% Cotton light weight Zegna chinos (flat front). Wish these things fit so I could rock them for Spring (Waist - 38/40, Inseam 31/32)

    [​IMG]

    Super Soft (almost Chamois-like) 100% Cotton Zegna Ecru/Ivory l/s shirt (sized XL, measures approximately 25" p2p)

    [​IMG]

    Both available.

    Thrift fit pic of the day: Only the jacket, tie and shoes were thrifted. Others were either gifts or sweet retail sale purchases. Jacket: Alan Flusser (I don't care what you people say, this looks like I'm Gordon Gekko) 3-roll-2, double vent with ticket pocket Tie: Ted Baker Shoes: AE split toe, norwegian in whiskey (forget the model name)
    Pics are kind of dark, so I'll describe: jacket is a mid-beige herringbone tweed, trousers are a chocolate brown, tie is chocolate brown silk with blue woven polka dots, PS is chocolate brown silk with a cream rolled edge, and shirt is white base with blue and tan windowpane. Flash pic shows the colors best -- except for the flash, of course. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It was hidden behind a letter, a full page written in metallic ink, the gist of which was, "believe in yourself". I wish I would have saved it, but it's already in a dumpster.
