At least you know you'll be able to pull a nice profit and give someone some nice suits, if they aren't.
Broke a very long dry spell, although to be honest, I haven't been going as often as I would like. Happy everything I bought is in great condition and fits nicely into my wardrobe. Today's haul: RPL double breasted in a light gray flannel. Has some of the nicest horn buttons I've seen and the previous owner even brought in the waist a few inches for me. Something I would never be willing to spend much money on because it's a bit flashy for work. RPL dark grey 2-button...

I have the equivalent Florsheim Imperial boots and I will attest the leather is very high quality. Someone should jump on these; they're comfortable, look great, and are well constructed.

I know I'm in the minority here, but I still prefer my shoes to look well cared for, but...
I'm glad you're not a carpenter. You should be laying the garment carefully and neatly on a hard surface and then actually using the tape properly (in the first photo, you've started the 'measurement at 3/8", not to mention the undulations). With that said, based on that second picture, I don't see this coat ever measuring out to a 17.5; 18.5 maybe, but probably not much less than that. I think accuracy to about 1/2" is all we can/should expect from members; clothes just...
Sleek lasts look silly on me; I prefer "blobby" styles to keep me in balance.
Great, I love these types of shoes and still think they're the best looking shoes out there. Thanks for the post!
Drops. I also received a PM that my pics weren't showing. They appear fine to me; so if you're interested and can't see the pictures, please PM me and I email you a few.
