Posted this in the APC thread but didn't get a response.... I thrifted these New Standards and I believe they have been soaked once. They are size 30. Based on pics, do these look like they're the correct size for me? They are pretty much painted on in the seat, and they are pulling apart just a bit at the buttons up front. Too small, or will they stretch to a decent fitting?
Price drop to $315 CONUS.

People hem like that sometimes, though I never would (esp when there's no chainstitching to preserve). Could be why they were abandoned, though it doesn't seem to make much difference unless you wanted to cuff.
A sport coat made for Kevin McHale? That's a crazy find! There are probably Celtics fans who would be really into it.
Fit pics of my thrifted New Standards. Apologies for the ugly background..this is on my porch. They appear to have been soaked once. I included a pic of the hem (as they came). These are size 30. Will these stretch for a decent fit? They are pretty painted on at the moment, and the fly buttons are tugging apart a little bit.
I love the patina on those Olympic Boots. I don't think I've ever seen a tan williams boot that I liked so much. The leather looks so nice--I wonder if this is in part because the boots are a decade old, when RM Williams used better leathers. My local RM Williams dealer has admitted that RMW switched to a lower grade leathers in recent years, and that you can easily tell the difference if you compare a newer boot to their older boots. Needless to say, I was bummed to hear...
Dingo, Thanks for the useful information and opinions. xBearx, I hope the moderator bounces your ass. This is the second post I've seen your spam in and I'm guessing it's all over the forum at this point.
