    I think I multiquoted too many posts, and it didn't work... so here's some general responses:

    - No, not from a thrift store. Most of it was near thrift prices, but some of the suits were quite a bit more.

    - SW&D: Don't forget all of the MMM! I was really upset when I realized that the Rick Owens leather was too big for me [​IMG]

    - Shoes/Accessories: Sadly, none.

    - Pricing: All of the super hot items, i'll definitely be looking for top dollar on (probably the bay). That means probably anything you're planning on PMing me about [​IMG] If you're willing to pay top dollar, then shoot over an offer on that stuff. Everything is 42R.

    - Wearability: Some of it is insane. Stefano Ricci shirts with swarovski crystals all over? Some of it is crazy, but wearable, and some of it is more toned down.

    Do you guys pick up any golf clubs?

    the stores around here are filled with calloway and adams clubs (what i think are the nicest looking0 and alot of wilsons and taylor made

    since there are about 7 golf courses in the immediate area i thought i'd start playing

    but the thing is there is never a complete set, its always 1 or 2 drivers or 3 out of 7 irons

    i think i can make a set out of mismatched brand drivers and then hunt for a complete set of irons one day

    what brands should look for? does that sound like a good idea?

    I picked up a complete set of King Cobra Irons about 8 years ago for $0.50 a piece. People have offered me good money for them on several occasions.
