    I had the same reaction, and with the eBay photos with one shoe propped up on top of another.
    *shudder* Stop stepping on my shoes!

    Heck, laying a shoe on its side to take a photo of the sole makes me cringe a little inside, even if I do have it resting on foamboard.

    Yes, I have issues.

    So, I woke up with the itch again. It was certainly scratched. Some quick and dirties.

    SA was having a 50% off everything day, so I tried a new one, somewhere far away from where I usually go, in hopes that the Halloween costume lookers were not there. I was wrong, it was an effing madhouse. But, I prevailed. The line was insane :

    [​IMG]

    First up, this awesome "Marker" goose down filled vest. I dont like gilets usually, but this one is very warm and pretty cool. May keep. I know nothing of the brand though - anyone heard of it? Sell well?

    Then, over to handbags, found this awesome distressed lambskin Miu Miu. Looking at about 4 hundo, hopefully
    [​IMG]

    Old but near mint EZ 15mil15 grey SC, 42R
    [​IMG]

    Also old EZ grey SC, 42R needs some help
    [​IMG]

    Hugo Boss made in USA grey SC 40R (i think), ebay fodder
    [​IMG]

    Samuelsohn for Paul Stuart classic blue blazer with brass buttons (i think 42R)
    [​IMG]

    Etro striped spread collar shirt 15.5
    [​IMG]

    Hickey Freeman for Burberry recent grey SC, maybe an orphan
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Polo lemon yellow mercerized cotton cable knit XXL
    [​IMG]

    Wanted so bad to keep this, but too big on me, LL bean fine wale corduroy navy blue shirt, amazaballs awesome
    [​IMG]

    Project renovation Gucci tie
    [​IMG]

    Harris Tweed in a sick ultraviolet hue, just beautiful
    [​IMG]

    Very rare, very recent Oxxford mainline wool cashmere staple navy pinstripe suit. Gorgeous cloth. Zanella pleats though..
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Handstitched amazing David Chu mainline taupe SC, 42 with throat latch
    [​IMG]

    Ridonkulously awesome Orvis blue gingham SC
    [​IMG]

    Hello professor, Polo itchy and scratchy tweed
    [​IMG]

    Thought I had me some Versace at first, but not so bad still, Brooks Brothers ladies 36" scarf
    [​IMG]

    Got all bucked up on these. Seemingly once worn PRL true buckskin bucks
    [​IMG]

    NIB Le Creuset vegetable slicer - Nat, or anyone else have a value on this? Thought it wasnt bad at $3.50...ebay completeds on iphone arent helping.
    [​IMG]

    Three dollar Prada bag? Sure.
    [​IMG]

    Same dude liked white shoes - Cole Haan white buckskins
    [​IMG]

    So, not a bad haul, right? I was pleased with these for sure.

    But.

    How about

    [​IMG]

    250 NWT Trafalgar, Tommy Bahama, and Ike Behar belts?

    Thats right. Two hundred and fifty new with tags belts. (and yes, you do see croc in there)
    Im feeling pretty damn good about my day.

    :)

    The Miu Miu is the Charm Two-Way bag. Sells for ~1200 new, $600-850 on eBay. Might want to double check it before you sell - it used to be a frequently faked style.

    But... Wow. Did you leave any belts in the store? That is an incredible haul.

    That Marker down vest is nothing special and is in a pretty grotesque yellow. That David Chu SC, however, is bananas. And the belts...that's just a gift from the thrift lord. Fuck.
