Ah, interesting. I only did so after getting nowhere with the buyer and assuming that was the next step. Mind you, this was after weeks of intermittent contact by the buyer and an open case sitting on my screen. Would've been a bit more of a bulldog in pushing the buyer toward a resolution but we we're busy having a baby at the time. In my call today I did specify that I was appealing the case but that of course got me the prior result. I see that I did receive an email...
      A follow up to this now 4 week old post. I fought the return obviously, consistently but politely standing by the measurements and tagged size and offering use of my pics in reselling. The buyer's replies continued along the same lines, basically, "this doesn't fit like my other 42Rs", "a pro tailor I took it to measured it as a 44long", "jacket is NOT 42R! I want to return for a full refund." After getting nowhere I escalated the case with a detailed description of...
Encouraging. Thank you.
Had a case opened this morning on a jacket sold on the 18th of last month, buyer says he finally got around to taking it to his tailor and his guy says it measures as a 44L. Here's the jacket: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hart-Schaffner-Marx-Gold-Trumpeter-Plaid-Linen-Sport-Coat-42R-Jacket-Blazer-/321436772210?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item4ad71fe772 I'm confident in my measurements. So close to fitting I almost kept it myself, and I'm pretty standard 42. That...
Have no less than 3 weeks of the thread to catch up on, but thought I'd put up a poorly lit Christmas Sunday/Caroling thrift fit. All thrifted.   Merry Christmas/Happy (belated) Hanukkah to the thread! Cable Car Clothiers suit BB Makers shirt BB tie unknown italian pocket silk AE fifth ave. (acquired just this week)
So good.Figured as much regarding the gender. They have a great history, though! Love finding stuff like this. Thanks for always being quick and willing to share the knowledge, man. All you guys.
Great stuff guys. Can't compete for quality or quantity but have found some good seasonal pickups for myself. Couple lambswool vests in my size, Paine and Byford Hickey Freeman Sport, made in Italy wool/cotton. Think it's the first jacket I've thrifted with no need for alterations. Been needing a good solid white shirt. Harvie & Hudson This one isn't going on a mannequin till I can try that coffee bean trick. Gent really liked the cologne. Currently stinking freshening up...
It's frustrating: I used to be damn fast at the racks and am now slowed down by the cane in one hand, items in the other, and the game leg. Carts (boo, hiss) help enormously. Still, doubled the time it takes to go through a store. Was juggling my things trying to look at a jacket in a vinnies last week and shattered a mixing glass set all over the floor .
You jerks had me out tonight looking for this Filson that is apparently raining down like manna from heaven     Did grab this Golden Bear in great shape for $15. Haven't had a leather jacket since the cat got upset with our house-guests a few years back and pissed on my old one. Yeah, dirty mirror. Rest is thrifted, of course: woolrich, j. crew, west is dead
Synergy: Not a clue about these, took a shot in the dark picking it up. Mine's tagged Large and buttons from right but is pretty teensy. Womens? Snagged a ton of shirts and pants at one stop yesterday, here's some:Zegna, CT linen, Zegna Sport linen, prl regent, Armani black, Paul Smith Pink x2, BB madras, Lewin x2, unknown pocket silks except the pheasants = PRL LP fabric cotton/cashmere cords, varvatos cotton/linen, biggest pair of zanellas i've seen in person. 52 or...
