What size? Do you have a pic of the Harris Tweed tag for it? I found one like it recently in a green with the complicated color weave like that with a newer, different looking Harris Tweed tag. 

At work right now -- I'll get you the measurements and pictures tonight.

Some examples of those BINs. They should be bragged in this thread, don't you think?

I usually do mention them, I like seeing other peoples deals as well (unless you are my size, in which case I get angry for missing out wink.gif )

http://www.ebay.com/itm/290651100693?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_500wt_1180

Note the listed size, and the measurements. Then notice the tag on the SC. He used the template from another SC he must have sold. A friend pointed out the size on the tag, which just happens to work for me. The listed size scared off all the potential buyers, so I got it for a song smile.gif
(assuming the tag size is correct)

Jealously I look on. If it does not work for you, I am a 56 and it will work for me if it is long enough laugh.gif

Sounds good fing02[1].gif

It's a silk/linen/wool mixture, I am very curious to see what it's like!

Do you have any Isaia SC's in my size by chance? biggrin.gif

Have you tried google checkout yet?

Yep, tried Dwolla too. Trouble is, I don't like change and I've gotten so used to Paypal over the past 5-6 years. It'll take some getting used to but I'm getting pushed farther and farther away from PP.

A tale of victory and defeat today. Hit a local thrift that gets nice stuff on occasion, but it's few and far between. It's on my daily route, so I try and hit it once or twice a week at least.

Was pleasantly surprised to see a couple recent Armani Collezioni suits. a good sign. Next one was a gorgeous recent Zegna mainline "Tropical" suit. Side vented. Euro 54 R. Tiny bit of sheen on the back of the sleeves, but I couldn't pass it up. I've read that the sheen can be lessened or removed online as well. Hmm, we'll see. Went through the pants and found a pair of suit trousers from another recent Zegna suit. No jacket. Turned the store upside-down. Even had a nice lady check in back for me on the racks coming out. Nothing. I bought them anyway and will check back tomorrow AM as well as the following few days to see if anything turns up. Dang!

I've successfully used Dwolla a couple of times now - the biggest problem is overcoming Paypal inertia.

I could get payment for FREE through Paypal Personal - but I'd RATHER get payment through Dwolla and pay the 25 cent fee!

I have one in solid navy (actually more midnight blue or very dark navy) that is close to your size - a 56L. Measures 32" BOC, P2P 23", Shoulders 20", Sleeve 26". It is right on my threshold of wearability, I am 50/50 keep or flip with it - but I wont be crying tears of regret if you want it laugh.gif. I have a YSL Navy SC in much the same style except I prefer it and it fits me better.

Only problem with PP is that the buyer eats the fee.....which is also a joke.

Don't you mean seller? Buyer only has fees if using a credit card.

You have got people to pay you on SF via Dwolla?? I have an account with them , maybe thats the way to go these days. I need to look into it.

Special offer for forum. I have a bunch of dress pants I thrifted but want to move on.

Burberry London Tan
Zanella Dark Tan
Zegna Black
Brooks Brothers Houndstooth unhemmed (new?, but 2 holes near the bottom of hem)
Ralph Lauren Polo Solid Gray

All pants are pleated and are sized for a 37 - 38 waist approx. I am about to donate them to a thrift store (I got them from a thrift store but in retrospect, they dont work for me), if any of you want them, you pay shipping and maybe 2/3 bucks per pair just so I dont need to cry in my beer. Yes, I do not try clothes on at thrift stores, too many queues for changing rooms ffffuuuu.gif and I have no patience hanging around like a chump eyeballing others waiting.

1) Very nice of you!

2) Why can't these be 30's

3) You really hate ebay that much that youll donate them back..
