    I have come across two of them. They call them Peek a Boo ties.
    I flipped one for $108 and one for about $30

    Welcome!

    Pick up Vicuna. That stuff goes really great on eBay.

    I know just enough about pocket watches to be dangerous, ha!

    But something added to the value that wasn't there a couple years ago is the insane price of gold. A few years ago, solid (i.e. not gold fill) cases might add a hundred or two to the overall value, but now if those are truly solid, not fill, it greatly enhances the price.

    The best chance of tracking them down might be here: http://www.shoearchives.com/Ferragamo Pages/salvatoreferragamoarchivePG1.htm. I used this to figure out what a seemingly rare pair of boots were. Took a while; mine were on page 23, but the system worked.

    Nice find the the RG....$$$ on ebay. Bugatchi not so much. Also go to page one, and read about the first 8,000 posts ...then you will know what sells on ebay.
    These sell well on ebay.

    Yeah, that sure sucks you didn't find anything. I wish I had good days like you have bad days.

    Had a good run compared to my first month or so of thrifting. Found my first suits/SCs of any note, too. Baby steps!

    (Sorry for poor mobile pictures. No sizes due to Britishness).

    Canali DB Suit, peak lapels

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Paul Smith 'Westbourne' suit. Maybe not SF-friendly, but I do rather like the funky details and slightly iridescent MoP buttons. Picture makes it look very purple, actually a pale grey (w/ purple lining).

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Ede & Ravenscroft Suit

    [​IMG]

    Crombie Blazer, Wool & Cashmere, rather thick material and attractive lining. It was the thickness which made me believe it wasn't an orphan. Correct?

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Crombie Blazer for me. First decently fitting 36S blazer I've found [​IMG]. Pity about some damage/repair to the edge at the front, but should be fine for the type of countryside activities it looks designed for.

    [​IMG]

    RLPL wool trousers. My size. [​IMG] (At 28" waist, only just...).

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, also a 28" inside leg. I've put some mini thrift fits below. A minus-break really is too short, right? So can I let down the turn-ups myself? Or is a novice such as I liable to mess something up?


    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    (I do realise that white socks are not at all apropos. This is for your eyes only.)

    Finally, a couple of items I left behind but was intrigued by...


    [​IMG]
    Linen shirt, with no name whatsoever. The thing that interested my was the wooden buttons. Probably high street tat, but maybe someone else can ID?

    [​IMG]

    Well constructed and hefty tie (left due to garishness), 'Lavorazione Artigianale'. A quick search suggests that this is Ferragamo, but why not label it as such if so?
