    Glad to see they made it to you. Luckily for my bank account, I can't wear sunglasses because I need to wear actual prescription glasses, because I tried those on for a minute and I thought they looked pretty good.

    Greetz!

    A week ago I scored a Harris tweed at Value Village, the sleeves are a tiny bit long but it fits otherwise. I'm about a 44R. I was jazzed to find it amongst the dreck. I emailed the Harris Co. in Scotland to see if I could get some info on the date of manufacture. I was under the impression that there is a serial number of sorts in the jacket that can be checked? Mine is 117324. I emailed the number to them but they were unable to tell me. Don't know why exactly, their explanation was something about pre 2008 or whatever. Sorry about the bad pix.

    I guess I'm on their email list now. They sent me some spam pitching these. Tweed covered earphones for your I-Pod.

    I was inspired by HansderHund's thrift fit that I did one of my own. Although no where near as awesome as his outfit, I tried...This is my Xmas outfit. My mirror wasn't big enough so I had to take a top and bottom pic. It's frustrating that this is my best fitting jacket with no divots in the shoulders yet it's ugly as hell...[​IMG]

    Yikes! Look at the size of those lapels! I bet with those bad boys I can fly to LA for my vacation without having to spend money with Southwest...

    I think the pants are a bit too long.

    Also, this is from today. 2x suits, 3x pants. Suits are tagged 42R, looking to trade for 42L. I would post more pictures, but I'm still on "picture probation".

    So... What's the deal with this "Shop Airlines America" username ... Has a SHIT load of positive feedback ... Instant payment for that Tumi jacket. $297 but seems sketchy as fuck.

    ... Patiently waits for brianpore to link me to eBay thread :)

    Congrats on your Kiton ! Please post more pics!

    I too shop at Harry Rosen and had no idea they sold Kiton. As far as I knew in Montreal only Uomo-Mtl carried Kiton.

    International buyers shop through them, you ship to them, they ship to buyer at what I assume is a cheaper bulk rate. I deal with them all the time. They have dozens of usernames, one for each country they ship to.

    You sure about this? I picked up a Brioni for Harry Rosen once that I could swear was OTR.

    I love flippers and I hate them. Actually, everyone I know who seriously thrifts also flips. Most are great people - willing to pass on a great deal if it isn't one of their specialties, hard working and with a strong sense of style.

    That being said, there are some people who are so nasty and aggressive when they are thrifting, they make it a bad experience for everyone. I don't like it if:
    1) if you complain to the manager of the store because someone else got something nice.
    2) you physically shove my mother
    3) you call the employees of the store stupid

    The volume sellers confuse me, but... I can deal with them. Unless they are in line in front of me.
