    If you guys have a Saks Off Fifth Outlet in your area it might be worth your time to pop in today. Yesterday atleast they were running a sale were if you bought 1 clearance item you got 2 of lesser value. I picked up a pair of APC trousers and 2 HF shirts for $80. Maybe it's a sale they do regularly I don't know as I'm usually not in the area of one. At the very least you can pick up some skeet blanks for the flippage.

    Ken others can chime in but I am not sure that Zegna is legit. The label and tipping look off to me.

    Part of yesterdays haul - There were more Zanella pants (all pleated all the same size appox. 36 x 31) then I knew what to do with. Picked up the best 5 pair's and left another 10. Not dirt cheap but good enough for me [​IMG]

    These Gap Selvedge have already found a new home with a thread member but figured I'd share the pictures. 1st pair of "buckle back" I've seen. Excellet condition with a tiny bit of wear on the back heels.

    Quick question, I have an untagged BB suit. It measures 23" pit to pit, has 25.5" sleeves, is 32" from bottom of collar to bottom of jacket, and has 36" waist trousers. What is its most likely originally tagged size?

    Uh-oh! Anyone else care to chime in? I was just under the impression that it was old. Silk feels thick and real, didn't think to doubt its authenticity.

    Any regulars willing to do a little proxy for me? Looking to make a Yoox purchase but had to cancel my credit card. Would PayPal directly to your account + fee once the order's been placed.

    Somewhere between 42 and 44 depending on the model, age, cut and shoulder width. I'd prob guess it would be a 42 as most BB run on the larger side and a drop 6 makes more sense for BB as well.

    FYI - You'll get a better response for questions like this in the Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions.

    Sorry, the Zegna is almost certainly a fake. Label/tag and backing look off, as does the fabric/content tag. The Zegnas that have that type of label do not have a self-keeper on the back.

    Thanks! I did think I was posting in that thread, I had multiple threads open and put it in the wrong box. Nevertheless, I appreciate your response.

    Bummer but good to know. Hate to open a can of worms but can anyone verify the brionis authenticity? Considering I found them in the same shop.
