    Besides links in signatures, is there an easy way to keep an active list of what one has available for trade/sale? A lot of things that I have wouldn't really go over well in B+S or eBay, but someone might have an interest (i.e. ties, unbranded pocket squares, hats, scarves). I save pictures to my default album, but do you guys have an album on your profile that advertises what you have to trade/proxy/sell?

    If this isn't being done, would anyone have an interest in order to quickly check out items for trade?

    Sorry for the 3 posts in a row, but I forgot to ask... a few weeks ago someone found a tie with a nude woman on the inside folds. I tried to search for it but only came up with an older post about a similar tie. In the more recent discussion I remember that someone said that they can be collectible. Well, of course after mentioning it I found a made in Italy tie with a nude woman screened on the inside. Is there any way to know more about its flippability (i.e. is there a certain brand that is collectible or was this done by several makers)? Thanks!

    I literally just picked up the same exact a very similar coat, in nearly the same size. I think I am listing it on Thursday, if you want to keep an eye...

    Is Givenchy worth picking up? I've passed a few times. I assumed it was licensed crap like Dior Homme or YSL. Yeah, yeah, I know: Read the thread/LMGTFY. I know I can do my own research; just hoping for a quick fix.

    The first thing I have found in a thrift, except some shirts and trousers, that fit me relatively well from the beginning. Made in Sweden and appears to be pretty high quality, great pattern matching (except just above the pocket).

    Love the Black Watch plaid. I had wool pants like that in college that I never had the balls to wear.

    I must agree with you, black watch is [​IMG].

    With patterned trousers such a rare sight as it is, it would be pretty ballsy to wear black watch trousers. If I find a pair sometime, I will definitely buy them and try to pull it off.

    pick up a pair of military surplus ones on ebay... if you're lucky you might find a pair with a fishtail back... of course styling in tartan means a kilt...

    If you ever find any Dior Homme in a 40R, I'll take it no questions asked. I love that licensed crap.

    @Eazye: Great Picasso poster. It's going to be a pain to take it out of the frame and get rid of the glass and reframe it, but I've done it before and it's worth the 45-minute investment. Just be careful that you don't scratch the print.
