    Hey, this is the same person who passed on a $60 pair of Alden Indy shells in nearly unworn condition. I are not that smart.

    Cannot speak for the pants, but the jacket shows it new with tags...I doubt it was worn.

    The two I was able to scrounge up from a Marshalls about a month back sold well for me. 100$ & 63$ respectively. I paid 10$ for them.

    I'd say leaving was a mistake...

    Is this a special fold (seven?) for ties? Or am I just overly optimistic? TIA

    Real. They did change insole logo, and they also stamp some shoes on the tongue these days as well.

    Not a multi fold, its self lined

    It was a great day of thrifting here in the mountains. Started the day off doing some work for a rock star in Park City. Hit up 5 thrifts and ended with an EZ su mesura suit, Brioni sport coat, shell tassel loafers, BB POW made in italy slacks (part of a suit that I need to go back for), BB Black fleece OCBD, BB yacht flag belt, RL black label seersucker pants.

    Picked up 2 BB made in Italy Lardini suits the other day to boot. T'was a good day.

    Hey guys. Long time no post. Kind of unexpectedly in Irving Texas tomorrow. Any place in particular that I don't want to miss? Garland and Dallas are not out of the question. PMs welcomed. I understand if you want to misdirect me if you're going to be there. :lol:
