    I bought one of these. Before I leave feedback and contact PP, I thought I would contact you.

    One, where are the papers? You said you had COA from AKC. This photocopy looks fake. Are you sure this is kobe?
    Two, I measured the paw on arrival, and even scorched, it's nowhere near the paw measurement you provided after I had to ask, what, a dozen times. What's up with that?
    Three, the shipping you charged to Korea was excessive. Why would I pay an extra $20 to have this shipped here, where there are Filet O' Fido stands on every street corner? You should have made the shipping charge clear to all corners of the world before I bid.

    That one and this one both fit like very slim 40R's... Which is to say, a bit too slim for me. I like both so I'm gonna see what my tailor can do. If not they'll be available.

    This one's a very nice Pal Zileri Lab, very dark navy with a striped texture

    Weird that I found this after I just found this other Pal Zileri on Monday (just got around to taking pictures)... 44-46L and available. Also, anyone know about this fabric tag?

    Not sure if it's going to be available yet. PM me and I'll let you know if I decide not to keep it.

    Haven't been in weeks and today found squat. Grabbed these Allen Edmonds so I won't leave empty handed.

    If you want them for what I paid ($9) and shipping let me know.

    AE Maxfield, 10C, good condition

    Don't get the wrong idea. Still not thrifting. 4-5 more days to go.
    Press 3/2 sack suit. Summer. Tailored to a 39-41 R thus available for trade.

    I bought this shirt and matching pants (ugh) off eBay about 10 years ago. The two colors in mine were an electric blue and a darker blue. The shirt was a camp-style s/s and the pants were, well, hideous. Ditched the pants. Still have the shirt.

    picked up a pair of Levi's japanese denim jeans. skinny 33x34, may decide to keep but i'm not sure yet. it had the real leather patch on the back(not the typical levi's patch, though) and the same tag posted some pages back that would lead me to believe it's LVC?

    All this talk of Purple Labels got me psyched up.

    A shirt! In my size! At Marshall's on discount!

    Alas, I was, obviously, blinded by the price and didn't see the tiny, unfortunately positioned hole, which should have been pretty damn obvious (I guess it's not that obvious in the pic, but in real life, the eye goes straight toward it).

    I will be returning tomorrow to reclaim my $69 plus tax.

    I don't know, but in the last 3 weeks I have thrifted 4 or 5 suits with that EZ cloth tag. All were very nice material and reasonably well made - canvassed, in some cases great shoulders, etc. I have never heard of any of the brands before. I wouldn't hesitate to keep them for myself and they do have eBay value due to the EZ name being used.
