    A store going out of business in my town was then putting all brands at -60%. Since I leave in a country where no one seems to care about nice shoes. I thought there wouldn't be too many people and arrived at the opening, at 09:30 AM. My bad, there were 40 guys in front of me...

    I got what I could and am already quite fortunate

    John Lobb 1140€ 456€, it does make a difference

    Crockett & Jones Handgrade 495€ 195€

    Needless to say, that made my day, my week and my month!

    1st and foremost, props to the SF guys for updating the photo upload tool so you can upload multiple photos at the same time!!! Thats a HUGE upgrade!!![​IMG]

    Left all this stuff. Will post the good stuff later.

    For Spoo....

    Never ever seen this BB label before...almost looked fake. Jacket had only one inside pocket (left breast) which reminded me of a girls jacket. Was super weird in the fact it was double breasted but had holes and buttons on both sides like it was almost suppose to be left open (no button inside to close the inner part). If this is super super old I can always go back but they wanted $20 for it.

    Thanks for the info. What're the tells on it?
    It was super cheap so no problem taking the hit on it, though still a disappointment.

    Plus, it's your son taking the hit, not you. Right? Live and learn, Junior! [​IMG]

    Ok guys I had My 1st good day in awhile, all dress shirts and all are keepers.
    Hilditch & Key Bespoke, 2 T&As, a recent ish Burberry, Pal Zileri ( anybody know the retail on these? google was of on use) and a few Pinks. All had dry cleaner tags on so I'm assuming from the same guy that never picked up his shirts. Pics once I get home.

    Couldn't tell you retail but I thrifted one in my size and it's fast becoming one of my favourite shirts. Great quality (though I wouldn't want to spend $175 on one).

    Yea I love the pattern and the quality, I think these shirts will replace my Banana Replublic shirts.

    They'll tell you. Include a picture of the serial number on the back of the small horseshoe tag hidden behind the size tag in the waistband.

    I will say that that bottom left picture looks very suspect to me. I've also only seen the buddha printed on the inside pockets, not the horseshoe, like in your top right pic, but who knows.
