    Bought a cartload of clothes today.

    Navy blue db blazer.
    [​IMG]
    Pink pincord sportcoat
    [​IMG]
    White cotton twill trousers (No picture)
    And finally a short sleeved seersucker plaid shirt, only bought because from 4 pieces, they had 75% off.
    Total 12 CHF, that is 10 EUR or 12$

    Went thrifing over the weekend and picked up a few of nice items:

    1. Current Hugo Boss with retail tag still attached ($90) for $10

    2. Very nice BB 50% wool, 50% silk for $8

    3. Tan leather chukka boots for $10 (can't read the makers name) size 45

    4. Facconable linen SC. Blue with muted windowpane pattern. Side vents in a 44R

    5. The five dollar rack yielded shirts from Reporter, BB, Canali and Hugo Boss.

    And from ebay this week, my first Oxxford suit in gray with a muted light blue pinstripe. Best $50 bucks I've spent on clothing in awhile. The fabric is amazing and it fits like it was made for me. Must have been tailored as the chest only measure 45 inches and it's a 44R suit.

    General question:
    How do you prevent importing moths in your closet from thrifted items?

    It was definitely pretty recent, and actually now that I'm going back and looking at the pictures it wasn't HF, let alone made in USA. Part of the problem might have been that it was solid khaki, so a possible orphan. It still surprised me. I had it listed for $50 for a while and it was getting less than 20 views.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And how the hell did you sell that old HF for $60??? This just happened to me last week, which was quite disappointing.

    EDIT:
    Wait a minute, I just noticed that all the G&H SC's sell wayyy better under the coats and jackets category. They sell for next to nothing when listed under blazers and sport coats. What's up with that?

    You should have bought it just for the jacket.

    So I'm basically doing Turnbull & Asser GRAB BAGS (Grab bag means I will grab shirts, and put them in a bag. I can only fulfill requests to an extent. Doing this for 16-41 shirts)


    [​IMG]

    5 for $137 shipped (~$25 / Shirt)
    10 for $224 shipped (~$20 / Shirt)

    So what you're trying to say is that they actually exist? :nest:
