    In the early 70's, my girlfriend opened one of the first high end resale shops in Houston. I had hair to my waist and I wore wool gabardine pleated trousers, some cool point lapel double breasted jackets, and had an awesome collection of vintage silk crepe beach shirts. Led Zepplin came to the shop once in a limo. It was pretty cool. Really great resale was a little more accessible back then. Most these clothes were from the 40's. I'm so not happy I let this clothes get away from me as the years went by. Now I realize what I had. The name of the shop was "Ruby Tuesdays". Those were the days my friend......

    Southwick 3/2 roll! Very soft. Beautiful buttons. Patch pockets. Condition is decent. Some pit stains inside. Lining in right pit coming loose a bit. Lining also coming loose on another point near the shoulder. Nothing a dry cleaning and some simple stitching wouldn't take care of.

    Perhaps removing the "Buy / Sell" from "Buy / Sell / Trade / Want" would fix that. I haven't been active in this thread yet, but in my mind, it's for items that you'd be willing to take a trade for, not ones you want to make a profit from. If money ends up exchanging hands as part of the deal, no worries, but I don't think it should be the goal of the listing.

    Guys, we should remind certain people that there is a classified section. More pms they get quicker they will learn.

Follow the sig for size 48 Oxxford suits, a 7-1/2D Cole Haan, 10D Alden, 38R Lanvin SC, HSM sport coats... some have prices but I am more interested in trades and I am willing to work on pricing with members who have good karma from being nice on passing on thrifts!

    I'm looking to buy some pants for the winter, if anyone has any to sell. Moleskins or chinos that are thick enough for winter, don't want cords. Looking for something that doesn't have a low rise and has buttons on back pockets, in brown, stone and khaki (I'll buy multiples if you have more than one of those colors). Looking for size 32" waist.
