    Depends on what he paid. Don't know much about the Italian stuff, but the rest seems flippable, if not wearable, and profitable if he paid what they charge around here.

    That was the oldest le collezioni tag, the one that doesn't say collezioni, not worth a pick up, at thrift prices anything with cilleziini on it is worth a flip in my experience. ~30 Sc ~70and for a suit. The newest labels are square, not rectaengular so should be easy to distinguish.

    This matter seems closed, and far be it for me to :stirpot:, but if Macy's gets and can resell the merchandise (i.e, as long as it's not damaged or really, really old, etc.), I can see very meritorious arguments that this is not shady. For example: How is it any different from returning a Christmas gift? The return right runs with the garment, not the purchaser. And Macy's is protected: THEY'VE GOT THE MERCHANDISE. This is the same objection I have with people saying foreclosure/short sale is a "moral" issue -- the transaction was structured to protect the bank by way of a securitized asset (THE HOUSE) and they get exactly that protection -- THEY GET THE HOUSE.

    In other news: Thrift Thread Fourty Thousand approaches, dudes. We lost the chance at an epic DM7 post when we chased him away (still mourning that loss, btw.) Who's going to step in and drop a bomb on us? Will it be another epicfail, like Thrift Thread Thirty Thousand was (sorry Samuel Smith; just busting)? Can we persuade Spooseph to go thrifting and teach us all how it's done? Will it inspire world peace? Tune in and find out....

    Ah, so this has no relation to armani black? I knew it looked like a collezioni label. Yeah I'd pass then.

    I'm sure that'll help. (Just ribbing you, Andro)

    Doubt we lost him for good, but he's definitely been driven to lurker status. [EDIT: Though I should prolly let him speak for himself....] When was his last epic post?

    I figured he was just busy. The last epic find was the 100x T&A shirts, one of which I wore yesterday and got compliments on, so yeah, come back DM7 [​IMG]

    ^^^ I've always had good luck with Paul Stuart sport coats (I've never come across a worthwhile PS suit, so I can't speak to those, but PS shirts even in staple colors and styles took a while to move with a starting price of $19.99). I'd go so far as to say that PS sport coats are a good pick up even if they only have one or two cities listed on the brand tag as long as the cut, style, and condition are all in order.

    ^^^ I was able to sell this one on eBay this past Sunday:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAP...K:MESOX:IT&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc#ht_640wt_1396

    edit: I really liked what DM7 used to post. He's probably on summer break from his university traveling somewhere in Europe on the back of his mighty thrift finds. And good for him if that's the case! [​IMG]

    (I think that he really got turned off to the thread when some people went after him for the outfit he wore to prom. I also think that constructive criticism is a good thing, but some of the stuff that went up was a little much and should have been said differently.)

    I managed to score 10 of these also and am very pleased with the result. Some of them are of a older make but still quality stuff unlike anything I can get local at twice the price(or more). T&A was just about to have it's fathers day sale so I was prepared to pick up a few shirts but this certainly beat the odds.

    On a side note he sent me 2 extra shirts that had some repairs done which Lady Canuker is going to remake into something for the little Lady Canuker's so I'll have to post picks when we are back from merry old England.

    Just wanted to give a shout-out for Capnwes. Awesome guy to do business with no homo. If you haven't done so yet, have zero reservations about it in the future.

    While we're giving "shout-outs" (a phrase I've never said out loud in any language), bytor13 was nice enough to complete a trans-Atlantic trade. I ended up with a great shirt and tie.

    Today I grabbed these:

    They're mint Lowe Alpine all-weather pants (triple point) in XL. Available for trade to anyone that hikes.

    What about these two Canali proposta's I found yesterday?

    This one seemed a little older (due to the tag), but a pretty sick Lavender (if you like that sort of thing)
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And this one is newer
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Both were not my size (but will pick them up if anyone wants them) and unvented so I passed. Just wondering if I made the right choice.
