    This is WIN, btw. Pure win.


    On a totally different note, I just made an epic post to the trade thread (slow day @ work). Someone please actually go there, look at what I have and trade me. Or make me offers. Or even send me a snarky PM just so I know you looked. :spam:

    How do you have it listed? Every Synchilla Snap Pullover I've ever found (7 or 8) I've made $30 plus on. Patagonia also has a deal with eBay where if you sign up through their website, the eBay listing will show up on Patagonia's website.

    Hi! Thought I'd post up my highlight from yesterday:

    Brooks Brothers Classic Black Penny Loafers. Marked 9 1/2 D. Available (not including shoe trees).

    ^^^ Freshly polished. The soles are thick and strong. The rubber heel tips are barely worn with NO ROUNDING to the outer edges - like new.

    Thanks!

    I remember that pack - I contacted you about it. Do you still have it? I might have to change my mind about it...

    Pretty amazing score on the Theta jacket. Please keep me in mind if you find anything from them or Mountain Hardwear. Anything from Small to Large. Also Patagonia soft shells or down jackets. :) I'm planning a very long journey into the wilderness within the next year so I'm trying to get a few incredibly durable pieces together before then.


    Also, re: Columbia. While most of their stuff isn't very good anymore, they do still make a few very good items.

    And while we are on the subject, and since this is a bragging thread, I recently got this off eBay for what I believe was a pretty good deal considering its retail price:

    First post, cool.

    About a two weeks into making the shift to mature my style. Different perspective being a cheapskate college student too, the local thrift stores are becoming second homes. Reading a ton, installing brand hierarchy. This thread is awesome.

    Anyways, today:

    Allen Lolly Oxford (what is this? it fit, I have no basic light blue shirts, and I saw Made in England)
    32/30 Brooks Brothers flat faced ...capris? the hell? (no, really, they're capris)
    cheap but fitting flat faced chinos, awesome
    Carrot & Gibbs red paisley bowtie (at some point I want to rock this)

    Also, what do I look for in a blazer/suit coat? I think I have basic sizing down: shoulder seams right on shoulders, sleeves between base of wrist and half way to thumb, being able to cup your hands under the bottom of the jacket, etc (am I missing anything?), but what else should I look for in a jacket (keep in mind I have not a blazer at the moment, what should be my first? navy?)
