Spoo had a SC in the B&S by a Zegna line that was made in Mexico
Helps if you have great pictures, reputation, description, and probably loyal client base like capnwes. Also, having a large inventory listed on eBay can create some synergies, since I look at the "seller's other items," of any item i find on eBay. Either way, if you would like to continue this discussion there is a separate thread.
Today's pickups. BB Brookease suits from 2006. 39 R.
But the real bragging from today is that I got a new job. 20 percent pay bump. Strictly writing instead of running a magazine. WORK FROM HOME.
Todays random finds.. A lightly used pair of Nudies , Christian Dior scarf , Christian Dior 44S trench w/ removable plaid liner, western wood plaque.
And now it's saved for posterity.
Once you post to the Internet, it's there forever.
As promised a couple of days ago, here's a thrift fit featuring the Grey/Black/White Harris Tweed that Wes sent me last week. I forgot the hat though. My bad.
On the plus side, I matched my fit to the background!

Banana Republic slim fit Irish Linen
B. Brioni linen pants
Allen Edmonds Ostendo loafers(vintage 1960 or 70!)

Have the exact top suit in 38R. Great staple business suit.
Dear thrifty comrades!,
Here is a little something I recently found that you might fancy. More finds soon. Everything will be available !
Half-lined, RL chocolate-brown, caramel-flecked tweed hunting coat
Sleeves: 25"+2" folded under
Details: suede elbow patches, leather football buttons, throat latch, buttoning patch pockets, quarter-lined and half-canvassed
That's pretty fantastic. If that was a short, I'd be all over it. Unless, of course, you measured the entire back of the coat with the collar included. Then, we might be in business.
Pocket squares I picked up this morning. Pics are unusually shitty today. No name made in Italy, Vitaliano Pancaldi, PRL

Went back to get the BB duffle coat, but it was missing the hood so I left it.
Brooks Brothers 100% camelhair in a sick sick brown herringbone tagged 43R - available.
That's what they told me when I enrolled. When the 8 bills came they were 12.75%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 6%, 6%, 4.5% and 4.5%. I've already knocked out the 12.75% and half of the 8% which are also the two with the largest balances. I use the snowball method, plus make extra payments regularly. The part that burns me, is a lot of my classmates were fucking idiots who had grants, scholarships, government funding, or mommy and daddy to help pay for some or all of it. They earned C's and D's. I busted my ass and got a 4.0 and couldn't get any kind of help. On the plus side of that, I am part of a very small percentage of the class who is employed.
On the road in the Kiton-Mobile.

Thank you, ATLjon! Unfortunately, I'm afraid I did the measurement correctly, from the back of the collar to the bottom of the skirt. But I am looking forward to sending it over to a good home .
Gloria, gloria in excelsis!
here's to the 50,000 post with the kiton-mobile producing so much spoilered sechs
