    First not unvented Corneliani anything I've found. Also is Crombie super nice? Passed on an overcoat the other day only because I CANNOT buy any more over coats. :D

    Actually, that would be the brides that experience this curious effect.

    Crombie is nice (not super nice, but nice) and there is a decent market for their overcoats (probably moreso than the other stuff they make). IIRC, the company went through a lower-quality era in the 90's/early 2000's, but their stuff seems to be currently quite well made.

    If you are thinking of moving that suit, I would be interested pending measurements.

    As a quick example on pricing comparisons.

    I am in the middle of a transaction with a regular located in Indonesia. I always use USPS Priority to ship cameras to him. This time he has requested faster delivery service, and asked me to quote him UPS and FEDEX prices well.

    For 21 Cameras in (2) 20 lb boxes, these are the rates I found.

    UPS $800-900 (2-3 Day)
    FEDEX $700-$800 (2-3 Day)
    USPS GXG $450 (2-3 Day)
    USPS Express $260 (3-5 Day)
    USPS Priority $200 (6-10 Days)

    He backed off and chose the Priority as usual, can't say I blame him.

    All Polaroids too. I sell him the ones I find, but also proxy others from ebay sellers who do not ship internationally. It only takes a little of my time, I get the ebay bucks, good feedback and he even sends me extra $$ as a tip.

    I don;t know how, but he sells them for crazy money $100-500 each. It doesn't make any sense.
    Check out his site, I was blown away by the prices he gets
    http://www.tokopolaroid.com/

    FYI on his prices, $1 = about 10,000 rp (Indonesian Rupiah)

    This looks very nice. Surprised it's gone largely unnoticed. I would love to see some more pics if you have any.

    This wasn't a thrift find, but I thought I'd share because it doesn't fit me. It's 100% wool and in pristine condition, the tag says it's a 40R, but I'll need to get exact measurements. I'm fairly certain it's a Corneliani label for PRL (made in Italy).
