    WOW that thing is AWESOME.


    I'm pretty sure Spoo could get you good money for those ties. They look like they'd be some of the more collectible patterns.

    Will I get delivery confirmation with USPS priority to Hong Kong? Still kind of scared of not using express since have read varying reports based on the country with any other service :puzzled:

    Here's the stuff I found tonight... Both of the Zegna's looked like they'd been balled up for a month. Debating whether I should get them cleaned before selling.

    Picked up a blazer at the one and only charity shop in Venice a few weeks ago - anyone know anything about this maker? Jacket is fully canvassed though unvented but it fit like a glove and was cheap cheap for how nice it is overall.

    Can someone also remind me what the rule is for converting EU sizes into US sizes? Something like multiply by .76?

    Convert cm to inches and double. So multiply by .78 or .79. It's actually 0.787401574 per google, but we're approximating sizes here.

    Sometimes I can't believe how all of this nice shit gets donated. I'd like to believe that there was a 90 year old man that was all swagged out in Yohji and Robert Graham shirts and when he died his family didn't know what to do with all of his glorious clothing so they just gave it away. Really cool finds as of late dudes.


    Saw 3 Burberrys' Suits for $35 ea. I passed since it was this label. This was the older one that is not very desirable, correct?
