6.5 in Tod's is equal to 7.5 US so small just not that small. Your wife is probaby a womens size 9- 9.5

Woah, there is actually a lot of Spoo and Son stuff online. Out of Madison, WI. Must be defunct http://www.etsy.com/listing/69019699...centennial-tie http://www.google.com/search?q=%22sp...ient=firefox-a Also, there was a Spoo and Son garage in Arkansas. Maybe you can get your 'Rarri serviced there

And I think they cut me a little bit of a deal because it took them about a week longer than they said it would. So I don't think you necessarily are getting ripped off.

The only parts it needed were the crown and the crystal...about 40 bucks each IIRC. The rest was just to clean it up. It ran when I got it, I am just not sure how well. And, they have had it for 7 weeks now. Keep telling me a few more days.

It was a tight squeeze but I managed to get a proper reef knot in both. I took a few steps just to be able to say that I have now worn Aldens before ripping them from my howling pups! I have started a thread about the Beretta. I hope the consensus is that it can be made to fit me as I am growing more attached to it by the hour. I may just sleep in it tonight! Should this sport coat be altered?

The boots have been positively identified as C&J. They show a size 9 but they fit me quite comfortably and will likely remain in my possession unless someone offers approximately enough money to satisfy the mortgage on my home. Thanks for the responses.

Sure....and let us know how he reacts to your advances...er..gift.

2 Zegna shirts that looked like somebody had urinated on them
Hermes tie that looked like it had been put in a toaster
Corneliani linen shirt that had a hole in the armpit
RLPL pants that had a huge pee stain around the crotch
Shell Aldens that were completely cracked down the heel of the right shoe


Oh, well. I guess you can't win them all.

Is there any reason that it needs to be a secret until you (hypothetically) present it to him? Why not just ask him if he'd like a quality jacket you found?

If you're worried that sounds weird, just say "No homo" afterward.

If you have a good rappore with the guy try gdwy89's approach ^. He'll either say yes or no, that simple. No need to overthink the idea. If it were me, I would just bring it into conversation with him, 'by the way, I have a jacket that would probably fit you. it's clean too..interested? no charge. I would like it to go to a good home.' that's it. If he's interested or not, he will let you know. I see nothing wrong with the idea of offering it to someone you work with. Hell college boys swap each others stuff all the time and never give it a thought.

Picked something up today I didn't think would ever exist here - an Alexander McQueen shirt. Tagged 15.5us 39it so it's available if anyone wants it. Anyone know who makes these in Italy for McQueen?

Also scored a Canon battery charger for my wife's DSLR for 90 cents so that was nice.
