    Those are sweet, but would swim on me.

    If anyone finds any madras-y, gingham-y or otherwise awesome shorts in a 32, I'm your man.

    Heads up anyone in ATL - this a great rumpus room / stylish man-cave / no big deal if spilled-upon rug. I'm not the seller, nor do I know them - just a pretty good deal on a Karastan 790 (sells for $1k and up new in this size). I'm not getting down to Smyrna any time soon else I'd check it out. A Karastan for forty bucks - really - spend the $2/sf to have it cleaned at Sharian and keep it another 20 years.

    Man, this bring up painful memories. When I was a teenager, I was helping my parents do a moving sale. Without adult supervision, I sold a similar looking oriental rug to some dude for $40...FML [​IMG][​IMG]

    ^ Charvet is a nice one. If theres no pulls you should get at least $50-$60 for it.

    Those Zegna's are kind of hideous. The Charvet is very nice though.

    PSA I know there is a lurker or noob out there somewhere who is about my size and needs a solid start into MC. I have WAY too much volume right now (~50 pants and shirts), so if you can rock a 34' waist and a 16/16.5 shirt (regardless of length on either, get at me, as I have a wide variety). What you can expect is decent shirts and pants at true THRIFT prices ~$5 per shirt and pants for Zanella or similar pants, and Ike Behar or similar shirts. I'm not touting this stuff as the best clothing on the planet, but its all respectable, and you won't get a better deal. So in short, if your approx. 16 shirt and 34 pants hollachaboy to fill out a fledgling MC closet. I also have a variety of SC/Suits in 40R/42R which I will also let go at thrift prices. Someone please help me clear this shit out without redonating or taking the time to make a ton of ebay listings, I want them in a good home.
