    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'know, I'm actually going to have to try to keep that opinion, otherwise Nat's ridiculous haul is going to sour me on thrifting forever.

    But seriously Nat, that's amazing. I don't recognize a single piece there. I can even imagine flipping past the 10,000th Haggar or Stafford of the month and then running into something like that.

    I'll save pics of today's finds for after all that calms down. In summary, near-NOS Florsheim Imperials (non-shell gunboats) two pairs AE Devonshire, my first Cheaneys, PRL angora sweater, other random stuffs.

    Nat- Obviously you killed it. Seriously dream haul and all the money is now yours. I can't rock that look for the life of me but damn some of those are so nice. Obviously the Raf is killer. I'm also really drawn to the YYPH SC Kilt combo. Good thing my wallet is empty. Might have made a purchase I'd regret.

    :lol:

    Seriously, and yes I am going to talk about FLIPPING it, can we guess what thats worth? I mean, I would guess conservative $8K. Maybe more. I sold ONE fucking CDG jacket for almost $1500. Those tailcoats and shit, I just cant even.

    I only see one, maybe two (really cool) coats that have sold in the $200-$250 range, and that was on b&s. Everything else looks like it'll go for several hundred apiece.


    AT LEAST TWELVE THOUSAND!

    Meanwhile, very happy for your great good fortune young Nataku!

    Is this fake? I think its women's because the xl is a little tight on me. The thing that threw me off was the zipper thingy that says Burberrys and the pocket tag being Burberry London. Any [​IMG]

    Two thoughts:

    1) Nataku, damn, son. I don't know what any of that stuff is but you done good.

    2) That Yohiji dude cuts some weird stuff.

    :laugh: Man, you know there's got to be one or two unicorns in there, those mega-rare things people dream about. I'd guess one of the more extreme Yohjis, but I really have no idea. Those are all so...nice. He really should show them to someone who could ID each piece.

    assuming there's like 35~ pieces of jackets, plus those pants

    gotta set the over under at 10,000

    i'd probably take the over if marketed right. that's pretty bonkers. easily the single best haul ever

    Three thoughts:
    1) Somebody's getting a 1099 this year.
    2) Again, I'm super impressed and very happy for Nat. And I can even see the value in those pieces as art pieces. But... CAN ANYONE ACTUALLY WEAR THOSE? I mean, that overcoat with dreadlocks? Really? Edit: And don't tell me "Goth ninja." Bro, I went to Cal. I know goth AND ninja. Neither one wears anything close to that.
    3) DM7 -- you hear that? Your PARTNER is calling you DOG SHIT. [Aaaaaand discuss.]

    Ok, we got what it could be worth. But what the fuck was the retail for all that? I saw the one, ONE tag that read $1700 and some change. Those topcoats alone...... Plus, there was MORE donated earlier in the week? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!? I don't think I've ever, in the history of this thread, more wanted to know who the guy was that donated all of this. I'm guessing a musician.

    I'm going with fake since the tags don't match.

    Totally not my look, but there are a number of pieces in there I would wear. :nodding:

    edit: There are also couple of pieces I would frame and put on my wall.
