    On the way home today I figured I'd make a "quick" stop by the local GW that has always been a bust, and well, today it wasn't.

    Anyone a 17.5 / 35.5 or there abouts? Pics of those finds soon.

    In the mean time, I passed on these two and wondered if maybe I shouldn't have. Can swing by tomorrow morning to grab them if I should have.

    I believe the tag said 56 R. Did a quick look for the pants and couldn't find them. Can check for those tomorrow too.

    Also, I've seen a ton of different Zegna tags, and this one was new to me... What say y'all, Z Zegna Couture?
    [​IMG]

    There were also Zegna shirts that just had the name across the middle, no Z in the background or couture like this one, black on white. Some I believe had french cuffs.

    Then there was this guy, he's part of the small haul I picked up, because I remembered the name on some suits here recently, and more important, it was just a damn nice shirt.

    All in all, it looks like one guy with expensive taste either keeled over or needed to make room in his closet. The rest of my haul included Pink, Etro, Zanella, and Zegna. It was a day of many firsts, and they all appeared to have come from the same guy. Hope his shoes appear tomorrow...

    ^ definitely go back to that thrift and see what else you can find from that donor. Zegna Couture and Pal Zileri Sartoriale are high-end, hopefully you'll find more where those came from.

    Another ebay question: Maybe this is obvious, and I'm just not seeing it, but how do you cancel a transaction after the bidding's closed? I sold a tie that — and this is embarrassing, and I feel terrible — I included as a freebie (I guess that's what I did, I really don't know) in a previous shipment. I'm refunding the guy's money, of course, but what other steps do I have to take?

    Open a case to cancel the transaction after you've refunded and, once the buyer has agreed or it's timed out, you'll get your final value fees refunded.

    Nice haul! That is recent Zegna Couture - great stuff. The other Zegna labels you're referring to are the recent (or close to) ones. Grab them if they're in nice shape!

    Pal Zileiri Sartoriale is their top line - quality is amazing and it's pretty tough to find! Nice! :slayer:

    +1, the Pal Zileri Sartoriale shirt that I have is one of my favorites.

    If you can find the pants to the Proposta, then I would probably buy it if it is less than $10. I don't think there is much demand for the Proposta line since it is relatively old and often outdated styling.

    $50... not a ton of money, but pretty significant for my broke student ass.

    Call EBay and/or PayPal and speak to someone. That is BS

    In his heyday, he even sponsored an AMA Pro Racing(motorcycle racing) team that was called Team Hunter Racing.


    +1. eBay and PayPal are the ones who offer the buyer protection. If the seller can't cover the refund, eBay/PayPal should.

    Thanks fellas. I just wanted to double check in case there's some small print term I might have missed that you much more experienced folk know about.

    Agreed. When I started selling on eBay they held my money for 2 weeks or until the buyer left positive feedback. If they weren't doing that with this seller they should be on the hook for your refund.

    So i think that the thrifting gods were on my side today! I snuck away from work for a cheeky shop and i found the best thing that i've ever thrifted.

    Quite possibly also the nicest thing I own.
