    I agree. I've often thought that this is a thread for 21st-century ragmen. High-end rag, but rags nonetheless. I had an uncle in the shmata trade, a manufacturer. I guess the families going full circle.

    @Frenchy

    Dude, you should go hit up a doctor. It looks like you got stung by a bunch of bees. You're all swollen and shit.

    Found a beautiful Cashmere and Silk Pashmina, (Scarf/Shawl) to accent my Rabhor Robe. Made in India, fabric appears to change color depending on the angle you look at it. No makers tag.

    When I used to play in bands, we had a guy tell us once that we had fucked up hard by not playing one of his shows. The gist of it was that, since we blew the guy off about playing, we missed an opportunity to play a stage at the Vans Warped Tour. Essentially, that we could have seen better than we had. The latter part of your comment reminds me a lot of that moment.

    Took a long lunch and hit a GW today. Picked up some shirts (average - Tommy Bahama, Brooks Bros, Polo etc) but passed on 3 pairs of Land's End corduroy pants in excellent condition and wild colors: plum, electric blue and bright orange. Should I have grabbed them? I have never picked up any Land's End (for flippage or keepers)...

    You guys were being really unfair to frenchy, a guy who to my knowledge has never said anything mean about anyone before.

    Anyway, dude don't leave, at least not until you've seen this eBay beauty:

    Rare 1 of a Kind Rob Ford T-Shirt Signed By Margaret Atwood

    Also, nice thrift fit Grendel. Unfortunately I'm not swinging by your neck of the woods in the near future, but thanks for your kind offer a few dozen posts back.

    Anyway, so I grabbed this Kiton shirt the other day to flip.

    [​IMG]

    Didn't realize until I got home that it had some snags, one of which might even be the beginning of a hole.

    [​IMG]

    I'm thinking I should just take it back. Or is Kiton enough of a name that it would still be worth selling as is?

    Also grabbed a couple of ties for me, and decided to shoot them while I was doing some eBay listing photos (so, not available). Note the use of my patented one-point lighting system.

    First one of these bad boys for me.

    And, finally I find a tie made for someone like me. But what's that bulge?

    Ah, but of course.

    You guys are holding me to a double standard.

    I'm just doing exactly what many of you recommend, and what I should have done long ago: Taking the thread more lightly.
