Percocets would have resulted in a large number of re-donations

Found this awesome made in England, waxed cotton Banana republic down vest today. Made it to half price day too! Anybody have an idea of how old it is?

The women who wear Eskandar know their sizes. If you say 1, they know it's their size.  I'd give the tagged size and the bust/length. That will be all any Eskandar buyer needs to know (besides fiber content and so on). There is no attractive way to display Eskandar. The stuff is built huge, boxy, and (IMO) shapeless.
It's not really meant to be vanity sized, but it can work that way due to the boxiness. If worn in the vision of the design though, the point of the boxy torso is elegant draping and layering (Lagenlook).

You are correct that most anyone who is buying it is mostly going to know their size. I would argue that the most important measurement is shoulder (to know how it will drape) and even more so, sleeve length. The chest measurements are relatively similar from piece to piece in the same size range, but sleeve and total body length can vary quite a bit.

First Brioni ties. Are these legit?

Look legit to me. Hard to tell from one pic, but everything looks to be in the right places, quality looks right, etc.

I'd aim for a title with 'document holder/wallet/portfolio' in it.

Lovely by the way.

Agreed. Wommenzzz.
