    i don't think i've ever seen suits marked 60 bucks in the thrifts I've been to. Would've laughed at em [​IMG]if anyone would mark it as such. Mind you the stuff that runs rampant up here are at best Canali, and the occasional Armani collezioni that isn't even 100% wool. Pretty sure if I saw Kitons for 100 bucks I would've kopped (albeit grudgingly lol)

    think u made a good choice tho; 60 for a zegna soft is on the high side I'd think; esp considering the price of the Brioni.

    Yea, this shop was weird. Not really a thrift shop it seemed. Reminded me of the thrift shops I went to in Portland that were super trendy and every tag had a date on it like the staff was competent to be dating these things. "1970's zoot suit - $100" on like a standard double breasted suit lol. I don't understand how places like that stay in business.

    Longtime lurker, first-time poster. Picked this up today for free. The armhole lining is coming apart a tiny bit, but wouldn't be a difficult fix. Anyone that wants it, let me know. It is around a 42R (maybe L), unvented. If you cover shipping and box costs, it is free.

    I got two pairs of suede strands during the AE 2 for 250 sale. I think neither is going to work for me and I was pretty bummed thinking that I was out 22 bucks for the return and would get nothing else out of it since their stock is probably shot after that sale.

    Just found and grabbed these PRL's for 45 bucks on fleabay. Benchmade in Italy. No idea who makes them, but they look like they're in decent condition and they've got commando soles. Any idea on a maker?

    How'd I do?

    I found a pair of suede PRL benchmade in Italy loafers a while back and held onto them for a bit.. Really really wish they had been my size. Once you swap the laces out on your eBay win, I'd say you did fantastic. Those shoes look great.

    Thanks for the input. I was hoping that it was worth something! Did you try and sell on Ebay?

    Score! I found a Bang and Olufsen turntable a couple years back but unfortunately it needed a $400 replacement stylus so I gave it away [​IMG] Love their designs.

    How does one go about getting this kind of wear on a tie?

    Noticed these on the end of the belt tip just now. Is the 92 the year it was made?
