    You are starting to encroach on my territory now Jon. :D

    You can usually find one or two decent shirts at that GW, but I have not found it to be the most fruitful overall. It looks nice though.

    Interested in these. How much were they? Would you proxy? My best friend (who owns an excavating company) is getting married in a few months.

    Wait...are they cufflinks, or belt buckles? Looking for cufflinks.

    Passed on a Tom James and Nordstrom shirt today, weren't my size. I've also gotten the gist that, unless they're a Brioni or higher tier, shirts aren't worth flipping? Should I have grabbed them to trade to people on here?

    it's hickey-freeman. The style (unless it's staple stuff) doesn't agree with me (like, for the nursing home set) but the Italy stuff is well made. Am I mistaken, all you people more expert than I? Feel free to set me straight if this is misinformation

    Very excited, but guardedly so since I suspect it's all ebay bound and then I have to compete with the masses. :cloud:

    Depends...are you happy making $10 a shirt flipping or do you only want to make $30 a shirt... if your happy with $10, quality BB & CT shirts can be had for $2-3 and sell for $15-20 (slim fits and good sizes sell for more sometimes). There are a lot of labels between BB and Brioni where you can flip or trade and make money to buy what you want in your size, but might not be worth it for you to spend the time/energy to flip a shirt for $10...
