Nataku, the shirts were 17.5.
Two mother lodes today: Carroll & Co. made in England sportcoats (double vents, surgeon's cuffs, etc., pick stitching) and, at a separate spot, eight or nine Borrelli and Isaia shirts. Unfortunately, all were just a shade too large for me. Rotten luck but did help to keep hope alive. Picked up three ties: Aquascutum, Harrod's and Rex Men's Shop (Beverly Hills Hotel); and a Lorenzini cream-colored linen shirt. ETA, Nataku, those boots certainly look like elephant to...
Nataku, nice Luccheses! If not hippo, might they be elephant? I have a pair of elephant boots that look very similar.
That's funny. I remember Stanley Blacker from 25 years ago as being relatively decent. Even now, at one of my thrifts, the same stylish, double-breasted navy blazer catches my eye every time and it's Stanley Blacker. Oh well.

Tricker's wholecuts. Harrow model. Barely creased. In fantastic shape. Sorry for the crappy BlackBerry pics.

A quick Google search will yield tales of Borgia-like intrigue, including hired killers. ...
Alfred Dunhill double-breasted suit, double-vented; pants with forward pleats; light/medium grey wool/mohair combo. Very nice suit with the slight sheen that fabric gives off. Unfortunately, just a shade too small for me.
