Pics or links of the model being offered?
So, awhile back, the coolest of all cool dudes, GuitarPreacher (to whom ALL positive trade karma should be given) gave me an amazingly killer deal on some Alden shell longwings (like, AMAZINGLY killer: http://www.styleforum.net/t/9006/the-official-thrift-discount-store-bragging-thread/43575#post_5628915). I tried, oh so desperately, to make them work for a long time, but I just have to concede that they're too big for me. The problem is, they filled a very specific hole in my closet that will again go unfilled if I give them up, so my trade request is super specific. I'm only looking for:
1) Good (Alden, AE caliber)
2) Shells (a must...I only own one pair of shell and I love them/NEED another pair)
3) Brown or burgundy/color #8
4) Wingtips (I have some wiggle room here if someone has a killer pair of shell PTBs or oxfords, I *may* go for it)
5) in sizes 11.5-12.5D (obviously will depend on the maker)
I know it's a super specific request, but I really want to replace these shoes. I also won't sell them - I have a strict personal rule against selling anything for profit that I purchased discounted from someone else, so please no sale offers. I'll consider other awesome shoes for trade (and to a much lesser extent, tailored stuff), but would really REALLY like to replace these with another pair of shells. I know it's a shot in the dark, but figured I'd give it a try.
There's a little bit of damage to the top of the lining in the back of the shoe as you can see in the pics, but it should be hidden by pants most of the time when worn.
navy pinstripe count?
If anyone finds a slimmer fitting suit(about drop 7-9), can you let me know? I wear a 40-42L. Waist is 36", Inseam is 32"+ and sleeve is 26"+. Saw a great E. Zegna, but I think it is a 42S. Staple Navy(solid and glen plaid, herringbone, microstripe) and greys accepted(solid or patterned) and greatly appreciated. If it has pinstripes, let me know if the spacing is smaller - the largely-spaced ones aren't appropriate for my work place.
If you also find a standard navy sportcoat/blazer. Something like Brooks works. Flap or patch pockets are fine. I wear a 41-42L in Brooks.
I WILL PAY INSTANTLY WHEN THE RIGHT SUIT COMES ALONG
Tagged 40R, this measures:
Sleeve: 25 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/4
Length: 30 1/2
Waist (flat): 15
Inseam: 29 + 2
Also expanding my sports coat collection and I am a 40R, sometimes 40L depending on the maker. Mostly looking to add some glen plaid and gun club patterns at this point but I also need a summer weight navy blazer.
