At the turn of the century, when Roetzel wrote THE GENTLEMAN, their wacked-out past still deserved mention.

Now nearly all have forgotten it. Only a few memories glimmer...

Perhaps this most elegant referee/traffic cop uniform ever will revive them.

Yes. It's an undervalued brand. I rarely bother selling it for that reason, but the quality is good.

If that is your size, it's a good deal.

There was an insane Brioni suit at my local thrift the other day, and I just left it behind. I wanted to buy it to find it a home, but I just didn't have the energy. See them from time to time.

Why would you leave behind a Brioni? That's an easy profit! confused.gif

If you find a 60s or 70s Brioni SC (rather than an 80s like the one I linked to), and in a size 50/52eu with sleeves of about 25", I'm interested.

Great deal for a RLBL suit in size 39L, (could be 40L/41L) as long as you are ok with black pinstripe...

Arghh that would be perfect for me if it wasn't black.

Isn't that an oxymoron?

URGENT COP for the large SFer who wants to play like a baller at minimum cost:

http://www.yoox.com/item/YOOX/BRUNELLO+CUCINELLI/dept/clearance/tskay/3FD17CD7/rr/1/cod10/41201198QK/sts/sr_clearance80

Linen Cucinelli jacket on Yoox in size 50/60 for $78 shipped. Considered buying and flipping but don't have the inclination or the time. Somebody here get it... or wait, that's right, I'm the biggest/shortest guy here at size 41 with a 29" inseam.

I still don't get Yoox. I check the sample sale stuff a couple times a day, and things like this just pop in and out without any apparent pattern.

lol that is SO big. They stop adding the X's at 56, which is an XXXL, but presumably this is an XXXXXL
