And based on earlier threads and near universal recommendations this was the fabric of my first order, which has not yet arrived. Perry

I recently bought an e54L Corneliani and it had to have about 3 inches cut off the sleeves losing most of the...
I am paying $38 in Tucson (plus $5 per buttonhole stitching=$40) to get mine done. And I will bet the rent on the W side of Tucson is a bit cheaper than in Manhattan. Perry
Well I don't know if Ebay counts as a thrift, but it has been a heck of a week. I had 13 items up for sale and only 6 sold and the canali, Oxxford, and Pat Zileri suits all sold at less than bargain basement prices. Steals for sure. The good news is that I bought what looked like a virtually new Brioni silk summer sportcoat in a bl/wh herringbone for only $150. It arrived today and definitely looks like it just came off the Nieman's retail shelf at a cost of...

He has the scarf...
MyMy seems that several people have forgotten their Prozac today. Perry
An old thread but Ebay keeps rocking on. I have bought 70 items since the start of the year. Early on I was not tuned in to the size conventions (most Ebayers think a e54L is a 44L) and the need to really know your measurements and to nearly be clairvoyant about how good the seller has measured and read the tags. So a lot of what I bought had to be resold or donated. But still there are some good bargains to be had from some of the better sellers both amateur and...

Aha! congratulations. I would say lets trade, but i have just listed many of my 34s on EBay. I think you will have no problem with a 2 inch drop. Perry
