    PSA. I just added 2 bidders to the Blacklist. Save yourself a headache or two. They were sending me simultanious emails. Wow, I wish everyone was as good as the people in this thread.

    One was irate when I opened an unpaid case after 6 days. A reminder was sent on day 4, and he still has til day 10 to pay. I will probably get bad feedback from him.

    The other sent a question about a suit. The description described it as needing light drycleaning. She said I should have it cleasned myself and that I was stupid.

    Um, no thanks.

    I've been on the lookout for some good tweed for a while now (all I have is a pretty cruddy Stafford) and was kicking myself for not picking up a decent Norm Thompson made in England tweed yesterday... until I came across these...

    Those last two are Pure Cashmere, btw. [​IMG]
    Also found a Brooks Brothers Makers & Merchants shirt, in my size, with french cuffs. Normally I'd be pretty stoked about that, but today destroyed my normal expectations.

    First of all a huge shout out to Xenos who got me an incredible Cucinelli linen shirt and gorgeous RLPL tie in great time. Thanks man!

    Here's my finds from the last couple days.. More accessories than big stuff, but oh well...

    Found this Canali suit today... Left behind another Canali and older HF that both had damage, as well as a Lubiam 1911 that had a dated low gorge and no vents.

    AVAILABLE

    Yesterday I picked up this Belvest navy blazer... Unfortunately I didn't notice the damage on the lapel. Available if anyone wants it at cost, otherwise going back. It's really too bad 'cause this thing had sick pick stitching and detailing.

    Really excited about adding this tweed driving cap to my collection. NOT AVAILABLE

    A pair of dark brown twill Canali Proposta flat front trousers... Maybe reverse orphans, but the jacket wasn't around, so... Probably not available pending trying them on.

    A cool Johnston's of Elgin scarf...
    [​IMG]


    That's probably available 'cause I like this other one better and it doesn't have a maker's tag

    [​IMG]

    Also picked up this untagged silk scarf that should go well with my grey with aqua pinstripe HF suit

    [​IMG]

    Another Scottish tartan tie, available

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Also picked up a cool lithograph. I like it but my GF isn't so excited... I found this guys stuff listed here going for a couple hundred

    If I decide to flip it instead of keep it, how would I go about that? eBay?

    If I'm holding to that standard, my posts may be few and far between. [​IMG]

    All in my size, but not sure if I really need all six. If I decide to part with a few, I'll make sure to let you guys know.

    By shot I'm assuming he meant buckshot, like with a shotgun? :happy:

    Those Oxxfords! [​IMG] Those are the kind of hauls that get one hooked.

    I've been wanting to do a thrift fit pic for a while now, but haven't really worn anything particularly worthy or MC-ish all since school's out for summer. I did go to a wedding this afternoon, though, so I thought I'd take a couple of pics.




    [​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Suit - HF bespoke navy herringbone (eBay)
    Shirt - CT tailored fit FC (one of those constant sales they have)
    Links - MOP (didn't really come out in the pic - thrifted by me)
    Tie - PRL (eBay - $4 shipped!)
    Shoes - AE Mora dub monks (thrifted by me)

    To top it all off, I just realized all of the links to store pages in my listings have been broken for three weeks. In the process of updating 80 listings right now. UGGGHHH
