    Too big across chest :(
    Yeah Borelli make a mighty fine shirt, those MOP buttons are usually thick n chunky. Not forgetting good amount of handwork that go into those babies.

    If those Eastlands fit, you should hold onto them. They are coveted by the TNSIL crowd, and with good reason. Great find.

    Agreed. It's been pretty much a sure thing since I tried them on. I love my Oakstreet's too. They make some fine shoes up in Maine.

    Should I be picking up Gitman Bros. made in USA stuff? Also, what's the official consensus re: Piatelli for Barneys? I passed on two Italian made pieces today. I must have missed the memo.

    I sold some USA Gitmans NWT for only $30 or so, but YMMV. Id pass the Piatellis.

    First post. First of all, I'd like to thank you guys for really teaching me a ton over my past ~month of intensive lurking! I was also happy to find this thread to reassure me that I wasn't absolutely insane for going to the local good will on my lunch break, multiple times per week :). Ok, so 2 days ago I had my first thread worthy finds.
    [​IMG]
    So, I went to a new place, and if you've ever seen mallrats it looked like it would've fit right in at the dirt mall... I'm through with everything save 10 shirts, I unearth this and almost have a heart attack... 2.19! Fits well, feels great.
    Then the next store I go to I find this.[​IMG]
    [​IMG] It fits really well, SO happy!
    Finally, today I found a few other items I thought i'd go ahead and post because they are both unique. [​IMG] Made in Italy, Bobby Jones,XL for sale. If no one wants it its going to ebay, then my dad.
    [​IMG] Unless i'm mistaken, these are the single most badass golf shoes on the planet, Footjoy Icons NIB 10M. For sale, if anyone wants them shoot me an offer before they head to ebay as well.
    Finally, [​IMG] Not quite as cool as the others, but still great IMO. Also 10M footjoy icons.

    So it's GoreTex? Always wondered what a GT Barbour would be like.

    Did I Overpay?

    $25 - Seven for all Mankind, "Relaxed," "New York Dark" (I think). Want to flip.

    Well shit.

    I don't know what I was thinking - Bonehead moment - SW&D is out of my element.
