    Wow, nice finds lately, all!

    I'm just popping in to say, Is it just me, or have PTO's eBay lists just become Spoo highlight reels?

    Ive been listing more and more menswear lately.... maybe just more spaghetti thrown at the wall.

    I appreciate every single link that they put in there.

    I did the anagram site but the only one that made sense to me, in "everyday conversation", was Ogre Turds. Even Ogre Turds is a stretch, except to my one neighbor who has a big dog that does leave ogre-sized turds about the 'hood (the dog, not the neighbor). HOWEVER, "turd goer" - that's a good one. Now if I could only find a scatological buyer / seller site, I would be golden (and showered [with cash money]).

    Yeah, I was looking at a more manageable size and had originally decided on the Lakeland Terrier (or Welsh, whichever was cheaper) but I couldn't find any breeders close and I don't have a yard yet.

    I also pick up good condition vintage which I don't care much if I sell or not - I just laugh all the way to the check-out over some stuff.

    Today I found the tux shirt that belongs with the Lord West posted earlier:

    ...I like Pistachio as well:

    Wow. Just wow. Some hipster will buy 'em ironically though.

    This is non-clothing thrift find:

    I am sitting on a BUNCH of Gillette Multiglide Shave Gel and Cleansing Wash half-ounce bottles I picked up from a warehouse sale. I sell them on eBay for a buck a pop with free shipping (a lot of 10 for $9.99, but sales aren't going fast so I'll probably be dropping the price soon) but if anyone wants some, I'll give them away if you pay shipping costs. They are perfect for travel/short trips.

    They are discontinued but have great reviews (I researched them a lot - a 5 oz bottle used to sell for $20+). I am moving cross country and need all the free space I can get. Let me know if y'all are interested.

    No love for Crombie on eBay?

    My guess is most Americans have never heard of the Crombie brand; or if they have it's only been in reference to their 3/4 jacket or in the "Crombie style."

    Added international shipping to my listing but maybe too late to show up on UK sites. I would have gnawed my fingers off for a shot at a Crombie cashmere jacket some years ago - but maybe that's the issue - years ago . . . .

    I saw whole bunch of Jack Victor lines at Saks today. They look pretty decently made for a discounted price around $900 for a two piece.

    For awhile I always thought you have to go to the rich areas to get high end stuff from GW or SA. However, if my memories serve me, GW take their donations to a distribution center and from there are delivered to different stores. So you can end up with good stuff from shitty areas and end up with jack shit from rich areas. From my experiences, it has been pretty true. I think the only ways to get high end stuff from rich areas for sure is to hit up independent vintage and resale shops in the rich areas. Anyone can verify that?
