August 2015 Summary

August later half haul 2015

The total dollar value for this month was not quite as much as last month (90 times the value vs 104 times as much) but the findings were very different and exciting. I was able to take good advantage of the Dollar Day Thursdays in finding many great suits, several new Hugo Boss suit jackets as well as a very nice London Fog rain coat for my daughter. Speaking of jackets, I found two great looking Giorgio Armani Le Collezioni jackets, a Bulgari, a Burberry’s Prorsum coat and a Corneliani coat (the ABC’s of coats). In the shirt department, I found a nice surprise in an Ermenegildo Zegna Su Misura and a beautiful Yves Saint Laurent dress shirt. Did I mention I found a silk Brioni dress shirt? It’s always a great find when you see the name Versace and I was able to find his name on a black pair of Jeans Couture pants. Not my size but still a good find for less than $15 in like new condition.¬† The selection of ties is always the best and among the much sought after Hermes and Ermenegildo Zegna names was Charles Tyrwhitt, Coach, Burberry, Valentino and a couple of the elusive Massimo Bizzocchi. The shoes scored big with a pair of Allen Edmonds Canelli, a pair of Prada slip ons and a nice set of Salvatore Ferragamo. The accessories have taught me to look more carefully in the dark corners of the glass cases when I found a couple of Dolce & Gabbana purses and a Louis Vuitton signature reading glasses leather case.

eBay has been a little slow for moving the lower end items I no longer need so I think I’ll try out some of the consignment stores near where I work to see what they can do for replenishing the Goodwill bucket for future purchases.
