Hi, picked up a couple of things over the last week. One I have a question about:
Picked up NWOT Sky Blue Polo Ralph lauren silk and linen pants yesterday in my waist size (32). Great fit at the waist. I really like the material, I think it would be fun to make the color work. They're flat front, which I prefer, and they have a hidden pocket at the waist band, which I really like on my pants that have it.
Now the problem. They put the full back in full cut. I didn't have a tape handy, but they have to be 12" at the knee. I'd need to hem them anyway (being new, they're just basted, and basted to about 38+), should I wear them baggy, try to slim them (and how much could they really be slimmed?) or give up on them and try to sell them? I'm inclined to try to slim them, but I think they'd need to come in to about 10" across at the knee, and wonder if that much is actually possible, or would look good.
While I'm at it, some of you would have already seen, but I picked up a pair of A E Brantley boots in 8.5 E last week. Unworn display models. I'll list them for sale soon, maybe this afternoon if I get them and some new pics ready.
Also passed on some similar condition A E Enfields. I wasn't as sure of their demand level, so I left them on the shelf.
Been slim pickin's for my own sizes lately!
