Would just the one Corneliani shirt + the TR shirt work out, or should I dig around some more?

oops - good catch! I accidentally put your sleeve measurement as your second neck measurement! Not even sumo wrestlers have a 34 inch neck!

It's fixed, and the average neck measurement plummets from 17" to 16.5"...

I have some ties for trade! Will consider any and all trades -- and combinations with other stuff I have available for trade... doesn't have to be an "even" trade, either -- e.g., if you have a tie (or a shirt or whatever) that you think is worth two or three of these ties, just let me know!

1. Fendi







2. Versace







3. Vintage Talbott







4. Fendi (yellow)









5. Grimaldi (never heard of him)

I would suggest putting that versace tie on ebay, i got ridiculous money for a tie and for a shirt i put up. Hideous shit, and it wasnt even the gianni versace line, it was the couture line my measurements: 36/37s 15.5 neck, but i need shirts with like 17/17.5 shoulders, 20" pit to put at the most 31" waist, 30" inseam

Heads up for anyone in nyc. The housing works thrift store on 77th and 1st had a gieves & hawkes odd db jacket, black pinstripe for $6 (half off 12 today). Felt like a ~38, with 23 1/2 inch sleeves? I'm 6'2', so the sleeves were far too short for me. Nice roped shoulders. Also - some sort of grey patterned Kilgour suit. Fairly large - maybe a 44 US? Was pricey though, 50 with the half off deal.

going thrifting today - kinda low on $$ but mostly looking for shoes. if I see anything good, regardless of size, it will come home with me and be up here tonight...

Hit one of my local shops, not much there. I did find a $6.00 Paul Smith tie that will probably end up on the thrift exchange as soon as I get pics.

Here are the Pics:



My sizes:

Jacket: 46-48 L or XL
Shirt: 17.5 37-38
Pants: 40 X 34 or longer
Shoes: 12D

nice jacket

I saw a Field Custom Tailor blue sportcoat with cool lining and working buttonholes, and a nice Raja's Fashions (Thailand) sportcoat... but I left both of them in the store because I'm very picky. But I did snap some pics with my cell phone... Field: Holland & Sherry brass buttons (interesting - only two buttonholes on both sleeves - both working) Raja: I did leave the store with some books and a Carrott & Gibbs bowtie which I've listed on B&S...

I saw your post for the bow tie in B&S. I was silently praying it would be green as I'm in urgent need of a green self-tie bow for a St. Patrick's Day "Green Tie" event. Should anyone come across one in the next few days, I have lots of quality ties to trade.
