Wow, nice haul DM7!! PM me if anything's around my size
So you don't lose it, duh!
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.
Pack it up LA, DM7 has the game on lock. Sooo much drool in that post.
Holy shit!!!!!! Number 40k post! Double holy shit!!!
Got any 40s or 40r with 19 inch shoulders? Good GOD!!!
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.

how about a funky dentists chair from the seventies (a tattoo parlour owner bough this one off me)
very rare japanese Yamada Shumei
desks for Typhoid
complete set for DYRLUP DENMARK
as exciting as those were there was only one item that really blew my mind (im a bit jaded after all these years of finding shit)
a brand new never ridden 1971 Japanese Bridgestone bike with the warranty card and instruction s still attached at a goodwill for $100 ( a guy fooowed me to the parking lot and offered me $500 on the spot but this one is a keeper).

this thing is heavy but its fast
and a guy i know,i was actually precent when he found it got a REAL vintage Tag Heuer Monaco for $7.99 at Value Village (Savers)
I'm about to invade.
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
2 Z ties.
Made in France Charvet
^ Charvet is a nice one. If theres no pulls you should get at least $50-$60 for it.
One of my best sales ever was a Karastan runner (Williamsburg Collection). I got it free New, wrapped in plastic, in the original box. Sold for $900
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.
