NWTs Brioni shirts -- Asking $120 each, or $230 for both. $5 shipping. Retail was $395 on each. MEASUREMENTS: They both are sz 16 with single button barrel cuffs. They both measure 47" in the chest, and have about 2.5" of taper through the waist. Both measure 19.5" across the shoulders and have a plain back (no pleats). Both measure to about a 35.5" sleeve length. The relatively little taper indicates a less trim fit, obviously, but the chest and shoulder measurements, as well as the plain back, tends to counteract the relatively little taper. Describing the shirts as a "medium" fit would be appropriate in my opinion. PICTURES (for those with dial up, pics go from full shots to close in shots in that order) Blue stripe pic 1 Blue hairline pic 2 Blue hairline pic 3 You can see that the blue hairline is a twill fabric. It is nice and smooth and would make a great dress shirt IMO. A very fine twill. Brioni check pic 1 Brioni check 2 Brioni check pic 3 I like the check fabric a lot as well. The colors are sort of a golden peach, baby blue, and burgundy on a white base. Great for spring and summer. Very soft, and a bit more body than an ordinary broadcloth. Has the feel of a fine twill actually. I've seen this fabric referred to in Italian as Giro Inglese. Alex, what does that mean? NWT Robert Talbott Trim shirt -- asking $50 and $5 to ship. Retail was $195. MEASUREMENTS: It is a 14.5/33 with a single button barrel cuff. Chest measures 42" and there is about 4" of taper through the body. Shoulders measure 18.25" and the yoke is done in a chevron pattern, which is pretty cool. Shallow side pleats in the back. Buttons are composite shell (I think they are a plastic and MOP composite because they have the MOP rainbow effect, but seem more similar to composite than pure MOP). PICTURES: Talbott 1 Talbott 2 Talbott 3 This is the same type of fabric as the Brioni check shirt. A very nice feel to it.
