Size 1 is their smallest size, which still means voluminous.   If you can get it to display its boxy shape, it will sell.

 

They do make a Size 0, to give you an idea of how big that is, VV puts it in the Men's 2XL section... The big boxy look is "lagenlook", so throw that in the title if you have space.

 

Been busy as hell working on listings, I'll try and upload pics of stuff later tonight.

 

@the2ndhandman you in SEA at the moment? The Ted Baker ties look familiar.

Speaking of clothing for snooty old ladies, I just went to an estate sale and there were TONS of women's clothes by Carlisle . . . 

Flip talk 
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
But, the Carlisle stuff is like a lot of old lady stuff.  Its expensive at retail, but I haven't seen any evidence that is worth trying to flip for any real profit.  Anyone have experience with it?  It looks like nice stuff (for rich old ladies) and it is similar to St. John, but obviously not as high and St. John still have good resale value.  
Recently sold a cashmere blend Escada blazer for $115

He was a big chap, must have been at least 50L.



Hello, "Big Chap" that wears a 50L checking in . . .

Just asked a 7 foot tall friend of mine what size he wears in case I find anything... 50XL.

If anyone finds anything that huge or any NBA player bespoke... let me know.

7 feet tall?  Shit.  That has be longer than Extra Long.   I'm only 6'3" and wear a Long. I can't imagine how people who are 7 feet tall get clothes.   A friend of mine is 6'10" and probably 335 lbs (I'm guessing) and wears size 15 wide shoes.  He also wears Cowboy Boots a lot and he says its because he wants the height advantage.  Obviously, he has a good sense of humor because he towers over almost everyone even in bare feet.  I think he either gets custom clothes or shops at that Destination XL store.  I went in there once and felt like a small guy.  

 

 

Also, @AlexJ1100 I'm sorry to hear about your dog.  A couple years ago I had to put down my 14 year old Westie/Cairn mix.  I was surprised about how emotional I was.  She had kidney cancer and severe painful arthritis that wasn't helped by meds.  The Vet said she was suffering and it would not improve.  It is a kindness to our pets to end their suffering.  My father's Westie lived to be 18 and my father bawled like a little girl when he had to put her down.  He is a big tough retired Army Colonel and I had never seen him cry at anything.  The bonds we have with our pets is very strong.

No way I'd leave an Anderson & Sheppard suit for a tenner even if it was made for Giant Haystacks himself. I've sold a smelly old A&S orphan with holes in it for £40.

I wish that I had to be coaxed into buying cheap Savile Row. Not a bad problem to have.

I would check your serial numbers in the data base for authentication. I'm almost positive that goose puts all of there tags on the coat hanger at the top of the jacket not on the bottom. Goose is faked as much as moncler and they can be very good copies right down to using a real ones serial number. If you plan on selling it anyways. They have a hologram sticker and specific serial number just for that jacket. Just a thought when I saw the tag.

So, I found a black widow in the Tire Rack. Needless to say I got all my ass out of there ASAP and found some stuff to kop. I was going to take a picture of the little guy but she darted off like a missile. I love thrifting all day but he has to take a shit in public toilet.

Thank you, i did know that but it obviously hadn't sunk in to the right parts yet because i was actually thinking 'purple ralph laurent' like @Purplelabel said lol
