I have for sale a pair of Canali pants, 100% virgin wool in a great olive color. I bought them just before changing careers and now have a far more casual workplace, and as a consequence I have worn them just a handful of times. I paid $365 + tax at Harry Rosen in Vancouver and am asking US$100 > $90 > $80 > $70 shipped. I wore them with a wide belt one day and stretched a rear belt loop, see closeup pic. This is the only sign of wear. A tailor can repair the belt...
Thanks for letting me know, but I need them unhemmed.
Hope you checked the lid for a pull tab first. Or is that technology only found on Canadian SpaghettiOs®?
I just received this Unlucky belt in the mail and it's too small for me, damn it. I'm on the last hole so it's just not going to work out. The original owner claimed to have worn it only a few times (I believe him) and applied a coat of Obenauf's when it was new, which apparently gave it the great colour you can see in my pictures. There are no creases on the belt yet. It is 1.5" wide and 37" from the middle hole to the roller on the buckle. The entire length of the...
Received the shoes today, thanks for everything.

How much length would you add to the size 52 MA-1 at 6'5"? How far should the jacket fall relative to the back pockets on my jeans, for example? Let me know what I can do to help better the odds of a decent fit. I read (almost) this entire thread today; you guys are doing great work and I look forward to placing my first of many orders. Up next, shirts... Quote: Originally Posted by impolyt_one 48 might be a little small or at least be really...
For reference, my Rescues are tagged 33, the waist measured 17.5" flat when new (~35"), and now fully stretched they measure just under 19" flat. I have a 35" waist but I wear these low and the top block fits well. Overall I like the way these fit but I'm pretty tall so I sometimes wish I had a bit extra in the rise and inseam. Full measurements for the archives: Rescue tagged 33 (actual measurements after 4 months constant wear) Waist 19, front rise 12, back rise...
Rounding things out and will consider any of the above. Thanks!
