    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Y U NO BUY BORRELLI?? That's WAY below the belt line. Even if you just standard pinch stitched that, NOBODY would know. Buy, buy, buy! And plaid Zegna = niiiice.

    Yeah, knew I'd hear about it. Lol. But I had a feeling nobody would want it once they see that hole. Anybody want it? I gotta go back to get the Zegna's for someone tomorrow. I could pick up the Borrelli if anyone wants to possibly work on it.

    Somebody better ask her to get the Borrelli. If it were a 16 I'd have PMd already and would be learning to use the seeing machine. Great shirts.

    Thanks, spoo. I figured it was something worthwhile, but with these vintage Versaces I can't tell if that makes it a $30 tie or a $100 tie.

    Weirdest shit I ever thrifted today......

    Reached in the pocket of a purchased item tonight to find what I thought was a squirrel tail or something. Turns out it is some sort of hair Scunci. Creeeepy.

    So here's an establishing shot. Other than the coat and vest, all of this was purchased today. While there are no stains or pulls, many of the ties are wrinkled and some are going to require a lot of work... but its totally going to be worth it.


    [​IMG]





    First up, J. Press Pressidential Donegal tweed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Any love for J Peterman? Bought because it looked pretty cool - it's 100% cotton and made in Portugal.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So. Many. Ties.

    These are not brag worthy, but were in the bag with everything else. Move along to the better stuff.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    BB x2 Made in England, and a J Press Made in Italy.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    NWT Breuer

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Brioni x3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    NWT Vineyard Vines x3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Duchamp... NWT. Wasn't something like this posted just a few days ago, and sold for a ridiculous amount? Here's hoping I can copy that feat.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    HERMES X4

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    HERMES X4 MORE

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gianni Campagna x2. Is the one on the left a grenadine? (never seen one in person.) Silk, Made in England.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gianni Campagna x3. I believe these three are all silk, made in Italy.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gianni Campagna x3. Cashmere, wool, cotton left to right.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So endeth the ties... on to the pants.

    Howzabout some Loro Piana?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Deja vu...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here's some more of that Gianni Campagna...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I don't think you can make it out in the photo, but these are Brioni Sport.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So are these.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My first ever Kiton!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this totally, totally sick pair of gray trousers...

    [​IMG]

    ...that are 100% cashmere, made in Italy, Incotex. I think the retail on these is close to $2k.

    [​IMG]


    So, yeah. Other than the coat, vest, two BB and J Press ties, all of that came in three big bags from the same location. Not pictured: some Patagonia shorts, North Face shorts, and a few other odds and ends that were part of the lot.


    Not bad for the (non-Chicago) midwest. I almost felt like one of the California guys...

    I went to NM Last Call to check out the 50-65% off clearance that I mentioned. Most of the items that were marked down 50% or more were fairly expensive, but it meant several Zegna mainline blazers around $350 with tax. They had a few Kiton blazers, some Tom Ford, but nothing I really felt was worth the hassle and initial outlay to flip, even with a 30-day return policy. If it wasn't a 60 mile hike for me I might have considered a couple of items. Someone mentioned Fray shirts a few pages back. I had never ran across one before, but saw a few there tonight. Talk about thick buttons, they were nearly twice as thick as some Borrelli buttons I've seen.


    I did pick up some stuff for myself:

    $36
    [​IMG]

    These weren't bad for $62
    [​IMG]

    $43, 100% cashmere:
    [​IMG]

    And finally, my favorite, this BITCHIN' black fleece button down for $49:

    :wow: Just one Gianni Campagna would be amazing, but you've got multiples!! That is insane! A quick Google search reveals the owner of that stuff was definitely making good money. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercer_Reynolds

    Ok Ok.... Just got back from that thrift store (in the cave [​IMG], no, but really, I have one of the strongest flashlights known to man) Got all 5 shirts. All of them a currently spoken for though! Sorry Eazy! But I'll watch for more stuff in your size! Turns out, upon further inspection.... A few of the Zegna's have MoP buttons...?! Am I right to think that? Or are they just shiny buttons? The blue plaid at the bottom has 2 really thick buttons for the collar. 2 of them also still have the cardboard neck liner!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Mother of god.... You got ALL that in Ohio?! How?! Well done!!!! I gotta know... The Campagna on the right (polka dot), is that a 7 fold? Looks like it opens just enough. And my hubs has a pair of Incotex 100% cashmere charcoal pants as well! You will not be disappointed!

    Edit: How about you give me one of those Campagna ties? [​IMG]
