Who knows how it made it all the way to LA.
Plus a solid navy tie by Gianni Campagna.

That looks SWEET! Okay, you got me back in the game with that!

I did manage to find an interesting almost new Ike Behar shirt in Small. I can't recall the last IB shirt I picked up! Also, grabbed an additional lambs wool scarf from the Gap so that I have one for each overcoat and a lightly worn pair of Levis 501s in 30 X 32, still very dark indigo.

PLUS,

SWMBO picked up a pair of Etienne Aigner shoes (the women's stuff is pretty pricey if new) to add to her collection, a brown, glen plaid woman's business suit and another pair of women's RL jeans. This was of great importance to me because if Momma's happy, Dig is happy, yanno?

Nice finds, YoungAmerican. By the way, Arnys is sold (or has been sold) in the US: http://www.robbreport.com/Wardrobe-A-Parisian-in-America.aspx?mpid=1

Congrats on the Bullseye launch. You convinced me to give Downton Abbey a try.

P2P: 20.5
S2S: 18
BOC: 30.5
Waist: 15 (split waistband with significant room to let out)

Florsheim Imperial plain toe bluchers. Shell. Size 12A, but fit a bit wider - maybe a B or slim C (I'm a 10.5 D/E and my fit fits into the shoes pretty comfortably).

I saw on putthison.com that it's not your size... What size is it, and are you selling it?

Picked up a light gray, extremely soft flannel RLPL suit in fantastic condition.  Too big for me (sized 44R) so up for sale/trade.

We are probably talking about the same ones then. I tried the newish one on Holcomb Bridge in the Target shopping center and in Sandy Springs on Roswell Road. Polo was the best label I found. I am also going to check out the North Point and Dunwoody stores next weekend, so if I come across anything I will let you know unless you already tried them in which case let me know.

Very respectable find. Those pants are super short, crazy short in fact. What a pity, but perhaps you could increase your possible revenue by removing the cuffs to get an extra 1.5 inches and perhaps there is an inch or two hem there that can be let out.

Whomever owned this suit, I struggle to understand his body. Super short legs but arms on the long side of regular. Very curious.

It's a good thing pants are very short for me. Otherwise I would be seriously tempted. Flannel will show if you open up the cuffs.

The question assumes you cannot wash away or otherwise remove the mark.

Yes, in fact I usually brag about my finds with my friends. But, even for those who don't share, who is going to know except you and your dry cleaner?

How do you wear shoes in such a wide range of sizes?
post #22528 of 112985

Stopped at just one store today, needless to say, I am happy:

 

First Isaia piece.  My camera added a bit more blue than it actually has.  It's more of a navy, I would say.  The Goodwill employees were removing all of the pink tags from the racks and had not gotten to the suits yet.  I couldn't find the pants despite doing the standard teardown including dressing rooms and throw back racks.  Oh well, it's possible to use as a standalone rather than strictly an orphan, right?  How is this pattern described?  Also, how do you date most factory tags?  What panel tells you the date of manufacture?

 

54R (42?)

Double Vented

20" shoulder

22" p2p

25" arm length from seam to cuff

33" overall length from bottom of collar to bottom hem

Nice EZ shirt, though I wonder about it since the others I own are Made in Italy, while this is Made in Spain.

 

17/35

A Paul Smith Belt 32", too small for my waist.  Very little use.

 

DSCN2064.JPG

 

And some other belts from previous visits.  Top to bottom: Pringle of Scotland, Coach, Allen Edmonds.  All 36" and possibly worn only a few times.

As always, all are up for trade or sale.
