    Hope you are an American hustler who conned his way into the most exclusive university in England to pursue the girl of his dreams. Those are the only guys allowed to wear varsity coats at Oxford.

    i am distraught. i finally decided to got to a record shop in town and get a professional opinion on the value of a neat 5 piece vinyl collection from the 40's that i picked up from a thrift for $2. while walking down the stairs, it slipped from my hand, and the entire leather binding ripped apart. i have seen similar collections sell for upwards of $600. whatever this was worth, it's now a fraction of that.

    appreciate the recommendation though. i may peel myself off the couch and give it a shot.

    Yesterday picked up a real nice Nordstrom corduroy 2-button, single vent, fully lined jacket, 48R, too big for me, but too nice to leave behind, available:

    Also, passed on this brand new 40R Coppley SC today. Would have picked it up and let out the sleeves, but the missus vetoed (apparently too "Don Cherry-like" for her taste). I can pick it up for a proxy if anyone's interested and it's still there. FYI - it was selling for $40CAD, and is half-canvassed.

    I have nothing against the guy. Glory to him. Do not, though, try to buy something from me to sell and act as if you are asking a good price for a thrifting brother. :paranoia:
    offer consignment and let me think about it. that is the honest way to go.

    Alright. No one else has said anything so I gotta be the asshole.
    Burn those shorts.
    What's going on at the shoulders??
    Nice pics, fantastic mannequin. Love how you put the pants and shoe like that! Guess I was one of the few who liked it better when the table and shelves weren't so bare. Maybe put a couple items back? Would look good with a crystal decanter and tumblers, maybe something vintage made from tortoise shell, a table lighter (maybe not since you don't want to imply smoke), iGent stuff. Came across these Pal Zileri woolen beauties. 56 Eu (40 US) so not my size :( Looking for 38S/R, 30/31W... [​IMG] A fit pic from last week to give a shout to rose04 (great trade) and give shiny and GMMCL a chance for revenge.

    Too many patterns but I got dressed in a rush. Coat Kiton (thrifted by rose04) Tie Bergdorf Goodman (thrift) Shirt Isaia (outlet)
