Is humor advisable in ebay listings? Or is this just weird?
yep, Dunn & Co is quality... or at least was... my kilt jacket came from them. I remember going in there for white cotton gloves, salesman wanted to fit me out for the guards in retrospect, I should have let him, lol
should go for the orvis... its a lot less painful than you think wearing tartan... still looking for a maclean sports coat myself...
It is not advisable.
+1. It is a bit snug on me, but close enough for me to try it on (but not breathe). Tartan is not normally my thing, but I was totally surprised how it doesn't really seem overboard when you are wearing it.
Yeah, I figured as much. Mine came with everything - original cords, etc so it was all plug and play. I was under the impression that the cords were hard to find though.
Still tossing around the idea of selling mine. If I did, I'd want to keep it all together as a set. It sounds amazing, though but I've heard when something breaks, it's a huge PITA to fix.
acosbysweater: i go all MacGyver on it and find bits and pieces to test everyting.pretty much everything you need to test will be on that electronics shelf.
first thing to check is obviosuly the foam.i have screwed up a few times though even after testing so it happens.
by the way guys im not quoting because when i do its being held for moderation but if i do a direct reply it doesnt.
A SFer just passed on it. So I'm gonna put in on the bay sometimes this week. I'll be happy to get $30, TTTT.

Oh man, Wes, that looks really nice. Measurements, please?
Call me crazy but the GW around my hood offers 30 days exchange with receipt. No refunds or store credit. Did you have the receipt?
You can't talk Mrs. Capnes into posing like that in front of the Camaro?

Random fact of the day.
Regarding Dunn & Co- maybe only the good stuff makes it across the Atlantic, but I pass on it pretty frequently. Everything I've seen has tended to be cardboard-esque. Also come across a lot of cheap hats by them; none looked worth picking up.
Just got back from a thrift-trip to central London- if the guy above thought $35 was too much for thrift stores, you would be shocked at the prices there. At first I thought the folks running the stores must be really brand/quality-savvy, until I realised that everything was priced above market (ebay) rates. I've no idea how they shift most of their stock. (Think £70 Jos. A Banks suit, £25 basic Levis jeans).
Still, the sheer amount of good stuff was fun to look through. Then heartbreaking as you leave behind Hermes shirts, fistfulls of (medusa pattern) Versace ties, excellently fitting Pal Zileri wholecut shoes, countless Polo everything, Chester Barrie suits, Churchs shoes and on and on. The bulk of ties and shirts were very wearable Lewin or Tyrwhitt offerings. I came back with just a couple of obscure things that slipped through the cracks (pics later).
An example to typify the trip:
Nearly new Tom Ford bit-loafers. £300. (This was in an especially 'boutique' store, with a mix of donations and new stuff, to be fair).
