    Great finds, especially the Creek amp! I was going to pull the (eBay) trigger on a Creek phono pre-amp a few months ago but they all ended over my budget. Really nice stuff, though!

    So the guy from yesterday telling me to cancel his bid and threatening negative feedback just paid :facepalm:

    Now I'm scared to ship, but don't have a choice. Doubt this ends well...

    Kind of a crosspost

    The blazer I showed you guys earlier. The only thing you can see in the picture which are bought for full price are my glasses. The shirt is an OCBD made in USA by a maker I can't remember now, the pocket square is made by myself. I will need to shorten the sleeves, maybe slim them down too?

    In one day I scored a super haul that has formed the basis of my spring/summer wardrobe. I stopped by my local cancer society store and found 2 new with tags j crew 484 slim crinkle white jeans for 8 dollars, one was in my size and the other I have since flipped. I then stopped by the goodwill in a neighboring town where they were having a 50% off sale. I scored a gant Yale co op madras shirt, a brooks brother supima cotton slim fit blue oxford, an arrow plaid button down still still in its wrapping, a Thomas pink white button down still in its wrapping, a RL white with blue and what stripe custom fit cutaway button down that was perfect for Easter (all of these shirts were three dollars) Then I moved on to sweaters and got a banana republic cashmere v neck. then I found an un-labeled jacket very similar to a barracuda g9. In the shoe section I found some suede j crew loafers, some bass penny loafers and some Cole haan tassel loafers for my dad. my last check was in accessories where I found a very cool striped web belt and some lands end foulard ties.

    Damn dude. Sounds like a mess to me. At least you still have the extortion loophole.

    It's a good thing I was nice to him and didn't already file the extortion case :brick:

    I was looking last night but apparently there is no way to block buyers with private feedback. I don't understand why ebay even allows users to have private feedback and private usernames, it's bad news for everyone.

    Absolutely love that Paul Stuart. I need more brighter ties, my collection is almost entirely darker shades. Didn't intend for that to happen, not quite sure how it did.

    Agreed, why would anyone want to have private feedback/username unless they have something to hide? Its BS you can't block them.

    $20 bid + 4 shipping on a Zegna tie I thrifted for $2... So I guess I'll be out ~$6 once it's all over. Could be worse.
