    They're a very dated, youngnstupid - very fashionable for the 70s 80s and 90s but definiatly not stylish.

    You might get $15 for the two of them, I think some people collect old Zegna ties.

    Save it or, scrap it?

    I picked up this RL Polo alligator belt the other day. In general...its seen better days. The skin is in good shape but, as you can see in the pictures, the alligator has split from the leather backing over about a 2" area and the pin that closes the buckle is missing. Do I take it to a leather shop for repairs and try to flip the belt (its 6 sizes too small for me), or just sell it for scrap? The gator could make several nice watch bands and the buckle and tip are sterling.

    FYI: Look at my ebay auctions: http://shop.ebay.com/crazearcade/m.h..._from=&_ipg=25

    See those hideous sweaters? I was just offered $1,100 for all 4 of them. If you see old RL sweaters with big images on them, BUY THEM.


    Wow, I gotta keep my eyes out for these sweaters. The auction closed last night and the four sweaters sold for $2,300+. [​IMG] Excellent work Mainy!!

    I think I visited 12 places on Saturday. I'm serious. Drove about 160 miles. I called this a "me" day. The good thing is I eliminated places I always wanted to check out and moved some up on the priority list. RLPL tie, Brioni tie, a couple of shirts for my everyday work wear, a Kiton shirt, 2 Brioni shirts, and a Brioni SC. All are my size but I think I'm going to give half of it to my dad. But the best part wasn't any of these items but the picture below. Can't believe I found these in southern california too. [​IMG] Cheers

    First time trying this out and I have to admit it's fun. Over lunch today I picked up the following ties:

    1st store:
    1 - Lauren Ralph Lauren
    1 - "Authentic English Regimental - Woven in Great Britain"

    Total for both..... 11 cents!! (Pay by the pound place)

    2nd store:
    2 - Robert Talbot
    1 - Lanvin
    1 - Liberty of London
    1 - Giannelli (crappy tie but pattern actually looks good)
    1 - Unkonwn brand but seems quality and looks great. (The logo is almost like a Fleur de lis but with what looks to be a C on the sides facing in opposite directions. Made in the USA from French Fabric...any idea?)

    Total for all six....7.62.

    I'll try to get some pics up
