    Okay, too much to photograph and not a thrift score but met up with someone who gave me the following to sell on Ebay.

    27 ties - Versace, Hermes, Charvet, Stefano Ricci, Zegna, etc.
    Pocket squares - Hermes,
    Shirts - RLPL, Zilli, Zegna, Versace, Brioni, etc.
    about 30 suits - Oxxford, Versace, Canali, Zegna, Paul Smith
    shoes - Prada, Gucci, Hermes, etc.
    Belts - Gucci

    shirts are mainly 17.5/44
    Suits mainly 46L
    shoes 12/13D

    I'm thankful as this is my only source of income! =)

    Just a suggestion, come up with prices you happy selling them for and make a Megathread here with something along the lines of "buy before ebay, no price drops, no offers, etc etc" so you dont get 20 PM's with people offering you 1/2 what you can sell it on ebay as it looks like your trying to max out profit due to income (which I think is called capitalism but a lot of people bitch and moan about on the forum).

    Hopefully you'll get a few sales before going to ebay and save ebay/paypal fees along with making a few guys on the forum happy. Plus dealing here is SO much nicer then ebay do to the stupid people that a) dont know there size, b) bitch about a single thread pull on the sleeve lining of a jacket and c) never actually pay after winning an auction

    Makes sense, I am a capitalist but also part of the team.

    I'm all for making a dollar but still passing on things below eBay prices.

    30 suits?

    they sell for $25-35? at goodwill usually depending on brand.......i don't have enough money in my bank account to even pick those up!

    im glad to say that for once, im glad i didn't find that score, or i'd have a lot of bigger and taller guys mad at me!

    Thrift fit... Wanted more color today and this cool shirt just came from CT (http://www.ctshirts.com/windsor for a great shirt + tie deal, FYI). Maybe a little fashion-forward for the office, but whatever

    Went to my usual spot today and it was closed(WTF?) so I headed to a spot a little further out. Everything available.


    Is this a womens jacket? It seems a bit big for a woman...NWT Pendleton SC.

    Norman Hilton SC...this thing is bad-ass. 40L 3-roll-2, single-vent and MOP buttons.
