    Today:
    70's mountaineering boots. No maker id, just says made in the USA on the tongue. Is anybody in the market for a pair? The soles hardly have any wear on them. Most likely a size 10 as they are just a little too small for me. Up for trades.

    Probably the nicest BB tie I've ever thrifted.

    Also by far the nicest Polo anything I've seen. Made in Italy with thick mother of pearl buttons. I'm actually thinking of having this one tailored, I just need the sleeves shortened and the body taken in a little. What do you guys think, worth it? Also does anybody know who makes the Italian Polo stuff?

    My size, unfortunately the pants were no where to be seen, I ripped that motherfucker apart to no avail, women's section and everything. I'm going to check back tomorrow and the next day and so on. Any chance I can make a pinstripe jacket into a blazer? No? Fuuuuuccccckkkk!!!!!

    Finally got my first bizarre ebay refund request. Shirt listed in men's casual section on ebay, detailed measurements given. Buyer is apparently a woman who thought because I said 19 - 37.5 in my ad that the shirt was a EU size 37. Hunh? Seriously?

    Worth fighting or just bite the bullet and do the refund?

    Also with better shirts (CT, BB level at least) if you wear an undershirt and antiperspirant you don't have to launder them every time. Cheap shirts rumple and wrinkle like a mutherf***er

    Also passed on someones entire collection of Paul Fredrick dress shirts. I see the made in China one's all the time but these were all made in the USA and in really nice patterns. I didn't pick them up though because the were 15.5 x 35 (not my size). Also they were all about $7.99 which is a little too much for me. Anybody have any input on the made in the USA variety?

    Worth it if you like it. I've never seen made in Italy shirts from Polo, but their made in Italy suits / sportcoats are made by Corneliani and are VERY nice.

    Tell her you'll refund the price minus shipping and a 10% restocking fee. I don't think she has a leg to stand on as far as thinking it's a woman's shirt.

    Is it possible to get the neck taken in too? Seems like a lot of work but it really is a kick ass shirt.
