    At first I was completely disgusted by the idea of wearing used shoes. Then, the disease progressed. I feel guilty putting on new shoes now, unless they're Bass. Like, I'm taking food out of my kids' mouths if I have new shoes, ha.

    I can has Barbour. I played Barbour Outlet Blackjack today. Let's see who on this thread says "HIT ME" for NWT stuffs...pics coming

    All NWT. Let's see what my gamble gets me!

    Jackets all (I think) come with Barbour hat/lapel pins. PM me offers. These were 75% off, it took a tank of gas to acquire and, well, I can flip for good money or keep so factor that in to offers (you guys get first crack before they go to eBay or B&S...but I at least gotta make my money back and a couple tens, OK?). If this goes well, there are more jackets, sportcoats there (motorcycle gear too) and I will be in that vicinity Thursday again.

    Waxed cotton jacket, blue, L

    Shirts, mostly L (might be an XL or two in there)

    POLO shirts were #1 counterfeit item coming out of Asia for the last decade. Btw I think eBay will flag your listings ...

    the leather soled weejuns...are cheap when you have clearance sales/BOGO and the outlet % discount card...and in New England they're the equivalent of sandals, basically, you burn 'em out in a summah or two. And the rubbah soled boat shoes for when it's rainy/wet

    ^^^ I have tentatively curled my fingertips under the side of my desk in preparation to send it end-over-end through my bay window and into the street.

    Also... day 1 report from the field (OKC the day before driving down to DFW for the 4th): DRY AS A BONE... I managed a Wills & Geiger bush poplin Harrington-style jacket S, a pretty nice T&A tie, a handful of vintage ties for my Etsy shop, half a dozen vintage Norman Hilton & Oxxford wooden suit hangers, and a few other odds and ends. Overall, OKC hasn't been able to recover from my last visit a couple of months ago, lol.

    Thank you, sir. Just visited their webpage, and that looks spot on. This piece was pulled from right nearby DC :)

    This is long overdue but I would like to thank all of you who've so graciously reached out to me the past few weeks after I made a brief post ITT. The generosity from all of you is greatly appreciated and I will pass the fortune along to others when I am in the position to do so.

    Capnwes is stellar with communication; we've exchanged dozens of messages and he hooked me up with a suit, tie, and several cuff links -- received many compliments on the elephants...most of them a random "roll tide!"

    MrDeep2001 sent me a gorgeous BB tie -- which I wore today.

    Ocooney insisted on donating multiple ties to the cause. I refused to divulge my shipping info without him sending me a paypal address to send some money. After our brief exchanges, I conceded and sent him my info without sending him any compensation.

    GMMcl is a busy man: traveling out of state and then moving. Nonetheless, he rummaged through his closet to see what suits he was willing to part with. All four of them arrived today and he gave them to me for a steal.
