Passed on a hideous E Zegna tie for $2. Sooooo ugly... brown and red abomination
+1 to all of that. I've decided recently the $10 margin ain't worth it, unless I buy for me then sell eventually when I've tired of the shirt like Henry VIII with wives (or Charles I with heads). But as Brian says: Many shirts can be had that afford $30+ margin (if you know what the sale price is, and are careful about what you buy it for). You will ALSO find, however, that many folks on here like to trade, as well. So at a cheap price, even not your size: Dangle it out there as bait and see what you can get. Couple of generous trades and you'll be well loved.
Sweet, sweet, SWEET trade with elev8rz!
Did it. Only the croc interests me Can imagine what would happen if I bring them home. For the sake of protecting two decades of blissful happiness, I will have to send you the links free. PM address and you owe me one.
Slow here too... Went to the one place near work and nothing.
There were so many people roaming around today hitting the racks hard. At first I thought I had a ton of competition, but then realized they were just looking for the orange tags since it was dollar day. Almost got exciting in the goodwill There was also some jerk that would unclip the pants to see waist tag and then leave them hanging... Also a guy dressed in MC garb that may or may not have been lastonb (most likely not though...)
*edit* There's a 42L Hart Shaffner Marx gold trumputer in navy with pinstripe if anyone wants me to pick it up for them.
Details on these shirts?
Exactly what I needed to hear. Thanks guys.
btw, CT = ?
That was me! I am hoping for solid colors and windowpanes/plaids (and of course, made in Italy)
Thrift fit from today
Suit: Hickey Freeman Collection, thrifted by me
Shirt & Tie: Charles Tyrwhitt
Shoes: Allen Edmonds Cambridge shell from MikeH
I'm concerned that the plaid on the SC won't match the plaid on the pants. I'll allow you to break the pattern/pattern/solid rule. I know, I know, I'm anal.
Does anyone here like these? I don't do eBay...but I see two to three every time I hit the Goodwill outlet ($1 errythang). I picked up three 'Players' shirts today (2 solid longsleeve, one short sleeve, flesh-colored-ish...plaid? Thingy? Not made in Italy).
Grendel, that looks like a zillion bucks.
What do you do instead of ebay? Maybe I shouldn't have picked up that one last night, Achilles just trolling us all
Also, what is up with paypal keeping the fees and charging you full price (pre fee) for a lost claim? Outrageous...
CT = Charles Tyrwhitt
I just list all my decent finds in B&S. When my coffers are full, I buy stuff. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. I was way too optimistic about trades starting out, learning the hard way that most are looking for the highest of high end stuff only.
