    Wow Mainy! Amazing haul!!


    Thanks for the kind words! Randy is a top notch buyer as well. No nonsense - the way it should be. :thumbs-up:



    Very sad day today. Had to pass on a recent NWOT 6/2 Hickey Freeman Collection for Saks POW Check 3-piece suit. Wool/Cashmere blend. Side vented. 42 R. The reason: no pants! No where at all! :brick:

    I asked a worker if she could check the back room for me and had no luck there. Oh well. Had to leave it behind, as painful as it was. The kicker was that the jacket and vest were hanging right next to each other on the suit rack. I know the pants were there at some point! Ugh.....

    I had a classmate whom I went to college with told me he had a friend who went to Berkeley with Huang. I think Huang studied architecture or related major. He said Huang would try to use his star power to copy home work from his classmates and use it to hit on girls who were way out of his league. Anyways, just hearsay...

    Just thought I'd park this lil gif here. Hope no one minds. If his shirt turns out to be Versace, that will be so sweet!

    So I went back to proxy for someone. Picked up the 15 milmil15 Zegna and an awesome recent Hickey Freeman. For those who are 58EU there's still a beautiful bespoke sports coat.

    Those loafers look to be identical to the ones that Spoo and I sold for 2.2k, except in calf/shell rather than croc. In short, send them to his eBay highness.

    Nice Haul! Are the Gucci's really small or the Weston's really big? I'd say send them both to Spoo!
