    Thank you, I'm certainly trying to work on my clothing photography, and I certainly love my camera. I took these with a Pentax K20D and my beloved 50mm f/1.4 lens that it seems I hardly ever take off these days. I used to be quite the hobbiest photographer with this baby, but haven't done so much with it in the last year.

    ...walked with a Loro Piana cashmere zip-up ($4.99). It's in amazing condition (though without tags, obviously).

    I'm a bankrupt student who thanks to this forum stopped buying his clothes at Old Navy/H&M while cutting expenses. And now I have this thing. I'd love to keep it, it is by far the nicest clothing item I've ever had in my possession (and its softer than... anything, really), but I obviously have to sell it.


    If it fits you well, then I would recommend keeping it. You'll be glad you did. Find things that don't fit you to flip.

    If you must sell it, take good pics and measurements and post in the Buying & Selling forum here.

    You should keep it.

    Finally found thrift store shoes that fit me! These Eddie Bauer deck shoes were $9.

    Not clothing-related, but found, for $3, a Poly Perk coffee percolator - so I'll soon try grinding beans and percolating some coffee, instead of instant for the one cup I always drink in the morning.

    Couple public service announcements here. Thought maybe someone would be interested in some unmarked shell on ebay that I found while browsing, and since these don't fit me I thought someone else might want to know about them. Note that these are not my sales, but simply other people's auctions I noticed on the bay. Hanover L.B. Sheppard Signature 10 A/AAA too bad these are so narrow. They are absolutely gorgeous and look practically unworn. These next one's I'm not 100% positive about. I did email him last time they were listed (no bidders), and ask for a bigger picture, and he sent me this. I doubt J&M has any shell in their "optima" line... but maybe he is wrong about that too? Johnston & Murphy 10.5 D blutcher wingtips [​IMG] Picture still isn't high enough quality to be sure. But maybe someone will take a chance.

    Custom suit from new Delhi today, needs to be shortened a little in the sleeves, but otherwise golden. Charcoal with a nice subtle texture, nice heavy wool.

    And a pair of florshiem two tone saddle shoes that I have a person in mind for.

    Sorry! I re-read my posting and realized I wasn't clear at all. Those aren't my auctions, I just wanted to call attention to the fact that they look like nice shoes, and the sellers didn't realize they had shell cordovan, so you might be able to get them for cheaper than usual (unless you get in a bidding war with someone else who saw this post...)

    A couple finds from this week: T & A $5 [​IMG] Some cool saddle shoes $5 [​IMG] I found these Calvin Klein Leather boots and decided they were worth it for $5 [​IMG] And a couple ties for $2 each (color is a little off) [​IMG]

    Also, what do you guys do about items with stains? I frequently come across gems but then find some small stains and pass them by.. Today I thought about picking up a white T&A shirt, perfect fit, but there was some nasty pit stains... Do you guys know of any stain remedies or do you just leave it at that point?
