Up for sale is a Pal Zileri suit in brown 40R. This Made in Italy suit is from their main line and not from the cheaper Lab or Concept lines. This slim and modern 50 Drop 8 suit is a beautiful 50/50 wool/mohair, fabric is from renown mohair and cashmere specialist Fratelli Tallia Defino and is woven in Italy.

With all due respect to the list above, lately I'm fond of Town on Elgin St Benny's Bistro for a real European light lunch at a reasonable price. It's behind The French Baker I like Play a lot more than Beckta (same owner) Jean Albert for the best hole in the wall fried chicken shack 4th Ave Wine bar
Up for sale is a hard to come by Brooks Brothers Black Fleece Suit (BBBF) in a true staple gray color. Size is BB3, which BB calls a 42R, but I feel it's more of a 40R, see actual measurements below. Will work as a slim 42R though. Suit is fully lined and better for fall/winer/spring. Suit has tons of handwork, pick stitching, famous BBBF lining, beautiful buttons and surgeons cuffs. Extra handwork include locker loop on jacket and pants. The jacket is 3 roll 2, dual...
I have for sale a pair of Hugo Boss Orange Label Jeans in size 34/32, labelled "Regular Fit". These are very dark wash, almost black in color. Great Orange detailing in the stitching and in the front inner pocket.. Engraved Rivets and buttons, and leather rear waist patch. Very comfortable weight in year round weather. I bought these at Bloomingdale in May 2011 and wore them just once, these are in Like New condition. They are just a bit to tight for me. Measurements...
I have for sale two pairs of Ermenegildo Zegna pants, in size 34 and 36. 1) First pair is the size 34 brown jeans, flat front and no cuffs. Made in Italy! Great detailing including labelled inner waistband, engraved rivets and buttons all around, and leather patch on the rear waist. Lighter weight for jeans and would be very comfortable in year round weather. Measurements as listed. I do have to be honest and say that I bought these as 'NWT' from this board, but to my...
Sadly I know what you mean about selection in Ottawa. I score the occasional deal at the Bay in Rideau, when they have their end of season 50% off the already reduced pricing, especially good for shirts. Same stacked discounting stratgeu at Banana Republic for some causal wear. Harry's is good when they have their end of season sales on ties, pick up a few Zegna and Canali for $40-50. Consistently best pricing during their sales would have to be at E.R. Fisher. Got...
MTM. I have the same problem. I bought a sewing machine and learned to take in the sides and sleeves on my shirts. It takes 30 min per shirt. Less time than going to the shops and trying and retrying shirts that don't fit to my satisfaction.
I'm kind of a newbie here, but not new to buying/selling used items on the internet. I ran into a situation this morning and I wonder if I'm off base or was it the other party. I've bought and sold a few items here on SF, and never ran into anything like this. A seller listed a shirt I was interested in, late yesterday night. I sent a PM at 5:30 AM indicating that I was interested and made a reasonable offer, including asking for a paypal address if he accepted. The...
