    Ray, check the buttons on that maroon DB blazer and make sure they aren't gold. Savile Row stuff is high-end enough they might be.

    Joyce is a high-end clothing store in Hong Kong. You're in Vancouver, right? That explains it.

    Viewing from bb, but can't wait to see Ray's finds normal size.

    Only a skeet blanket found today. Did pass on two v recent canali suits (dual vent, dual pleat)) that were very good condition, but a bit more expensive and not worth the flip (personal use would be fine). 38 short. One blue one brown stripes, but not staples, if that makes sense. Also a gray with beige windowpane sport coat, 48 long, unvented. Get at me if you want proxy. Won't be till weds.

    BB for me. I was going back and forth on the color. Would you guys wear this color? I wish it was more tan, but decided to get it because it was $10 and I don't find much that fits me right.

    First time out, most of this stuff isn't high-end, but looking to build up my wardrobe from college-bum level. How is this stuff, did I do okay?

    Gray pents, no brand, had a uniform rental sticker on them, used to belong to a "Frank". Any guess as to the material?

    Short trench, brand any good?

    Suit, surprisingly fits me ok , being 6'1" with a 33" chest. Can't find much about Cricketeer, it is a bluish-gray color.

    The best part, had never felt such a nice tie prior to this.

    I was really hoping for some shoes, saw a pair of burgundy Sears longwings that looked nice, (double?) leather sole. Not sure how I feel about gunboats, should I go back and get them? As far as flipping, saw some AE loafers, worth it? Any money is good for a college kid
