    Still figuring out how to use the Multi function but I wanted to thank all who weighed in on ebay vs. etsy, especially [COLOR=FF00AA]Typhoid Jones[/COLOR] whose insight was just what I was looking for.
    PS Never heard of Bonanza but will have to investigate more (interesting interface).

    This community rocks!

    Let me just abbreviate -- Brianpore is a fantastic seller. :)

    I bought a jacket from him on ebay; didn't think he's a SF thread guy. Small world.

    What a tease of a day. Picked up an E Zegna Soft jacket that I'm sure is an orphan, as well as Hickey Freeman for Barneys that is an orphan as well. No pants in sight :( Might have been a mistake buying em, we'll see

    Saw dress shirts from barneys, E Zegna, Zegna sport, Pink and some others, all too worn or badly stained :/


    Too damn hot out, I should have stayed home

    Since none of you fools seem to have commented on this, allow me: that looks fucking AWESOME! ...but is it a men's piece?

    Glad I left work early today ....


    In honor of the European debt crisis:

    Anyone know what this is?


    Every pocket is basted shut, so this is NWOT, I guess.

    $27 with tax. Maybe that's why Europe is broke ...

    Add this to the Oxxford I found yesterday, and it's been a good start to the weekend, even if it is so ungodly hot.

    That 2nd Corneliani is probably too small for me, but.... measurements? Or does it fit you?

    Please tell me that tie is available. Second Cornelliani is awesome as well, love seeing flax in content labels. Wiki tells me it was the first domesticated plant, and also is a solid addition to my yogurt.

    That last jacket is probably poor quality wise (45% viscose, "Fashion"), but it's a modern cut if you're into that :nodding:

    This is the tits! All I landed today was a BB Brooksease made in the USA Loro Piana Super 120s sack blazer. This thing is gorgeous. I'm thinking about having the lining removed and rocking it as my summertime blazer.

    I got a J Press tweed my size -for whatever reason it was $6.99 with half off. Very unusual price for my area.
    I passed a Press Harris bc even for me it was too worn out, passed couple of Hickey Freeman suits as none fit one was MTM -not impressed-, passed a Canali proposta SC very old with low gorge. I guess some of these are eBay currency but too little time.
    Nothing much else.

    Didn't want to dissapoint, so I went out and found some more cufflinks today.

    Large Pearl set is pre-dibs'ed for Brianpore, everything else available.

    One a side note, I have now completely filled that 5 drawer jewelry box, time to thrift another storage piece.

    Not sure these are real snake skin, but they are certainly unusual.
