    What I left behind:

    Spoo Alert! Any value in this? It was $24.99 and needed cleaning. But it was oddly appealing since it was somewhat puffy from the thinsulate stuff in it. Tagged XL and looked it.

    Now this was beautiful - heavy-duty, perfect for winter - but not something I needed and I wasn't sure about flipabilty at what they were asking. Happy to proxy - it's $49.99.

    I'm not a shoe expert - I know the basics. This wasn't in terribly good shape but was well constructed. Labels on the insoles were gone. Can anyone identify from what remains on the sole:

    What I came home with:

    I love waxed cotton. Ben Sherman, dark blue M-65-type jacket, tagged L. Perfect for fall.
    PM if you're interested (on hold for now but that's very tentative).

    Giorgio Armani boots, size 7, Made in Italy. Will absolutely rock with new laces.
    As I was going through the overcoats my son (grade 7) took a shine to them so probably unavailable.

    First up, two pure cashmere herringbone sport coats. My father actually found these and gave them to me to sell for him. [​IMG]

    Charvet shirt. Has a monogram JDM. Anybody a really big Japanese car fan? (Japanese Domestic Market) [​IMG] BNIB! [​IMG] Bvlgari is a 7-fold. No brand on the Trillion, but I'm 99% sure it's Isaia. [​IMG] They're not croc, but they are Tramezzas [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Couple more RLPL glasses [​IMG] Odd multi-color J. Press. Changes color in the light. Very interesting. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Patchwork Madras so Eazy and hs lady can match [​IMG] Pretty awesome Polo hunting/safari three piece suit. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] Optional leather elbow patches! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Another similar style, but I think even more awesome. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] More elbow patches! [​IMG] AND functional sleeve cuffs? [​IMG]
    Staple Polo charcoal with subtle pattern [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    GRAIL Polo suit. Not available. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    And finally one of the coolest coats I've ever found! Found this beauty hiding in a corner clearance rack. Top button fell off but was in the pocket. So worth it for what I paid, though. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Cost? $120! :slayer:
    The last two pieces really made my week, which had been pretty shitty up until that point.

    thank you spoo that is some great advice [​IMG][​IMG]

    I definitly will not be wearing that fit I posted when I meet the politicians and have debates, that fit was for the casual lunch before hand.
    let me post what I was planning on wearing for the debates, PLEASE NOTE THIS IS BEFORE TAILORING, I plan to have the sleeves and pant legs lengthened, and the waist nipped. the pants are also not as skinny as they look they are classic straight fit brooks brothers. I will also probably not wear this shirt but my other shirts are at the dry cleaners

    [​IMG]
    also I will wear a more dressy watch (batteries need to be replaced)

    You guys are killing it! Nat, all I have to say is Jesus...and if those pradas are 11 or 11.5, get at me.

    I had the opportunity to hit two places quickly today, didn't find anything great but I haven't contributed any pictures to the thread in a while and thought I should just rain a few.

    Shit 330, that's one hell of a haul, congrats. The Isaia is sick, and your grail Polo suit... those peaks be peaking. I need to start looking at the sunglass case at tjmaxx it appears.

    It's tradition Chinese something along the lines of "army officer grass green mixed fabric short jacket". Length = 67 cm. Chest circumference = 114 cm. Model number = 4. Can't read the last one. Hope this helps. You got any more pics in detail?

    Oh wait, I think the last one refers to the factory that manufactured the jacket.

    Agreed. The arms look a little short, but you also seem to have ape arms (the ladies will love it).

    Push the PS down a bit (for a conservative square fold, you don't need more than just a bit coming out of the pocket [think patrick booth]) and you look ready to go, dude.
