Here are a couple pics of the aforementioned Zanella trousers. Size 33 x 32. They're too big in the waist (and cut a bit full for my liking) so they're available. Let me know and I can take a few more pictures.

And here's the Sears suit! The sleeves and the pants need to be taken out a bit before everything looks normal on me, but I think it was a pretty interesting find. The lining on this thing is crazy.

Looking at that jacket more, it's clearly worn, and I'd say needs leather cleaning, but structurally and all everything looks fine. @#%@#* why are things like this never my size... Also, I'm not 100% sure if it's suede or just leather in need of moisturizing and care. I might actually lean towards that, actually, looking at the close-up photo of it.

I don't usually like leather jackets with elastic waists but I'm such a BB brand whore, you might be able to twist my arm and make me buy that from you! biggrin.gif

I feel like a low rent Spoo right about now. shog[1].gif

Picked up an Avirex Old Leather Flight Jacket A-2. It originally had two additional patches on the right and left breast areas, but they were removed.

Found these today:

 

BB Braces (1).jpgBB Braces (2).jpg

 

 

There were about a dozen more, none with the gaudy sheep, all in solid colors (mostly blue and red, non-silk, leather tabs) from BB and Trafalgar, one or two from Facconable.  $8 each, happy to swing by tomorrow if anyone is interested.

 

Picked up a Gieves & Hawkes coat in a dark charcoal.  I'm 99% sure it was an orphaned suit coat, but I couldn't be sure and it was half off (perhaps literally) so I figured what hell. Searched everywhere for the pants but finding that color is especially difficult.  Any idea how I might tell if this is in fact a lonely abandoned coat?  Anything special that distinguishes G&H pants?

 

Belvest SC too, pics below:

Tough to tell from my poor cell phone pics, but its an olive green with a red windowpane.  Unvented.

 

Just a hair too small for me if anyone is interested.  Approximate measurements:

 

chest - 21

shoulder - 18.5

arms (from shoulder - 24-25

 

Also, a belated thank you to Klobber for his thoughts on the RLPL grey flannel's pants.  If Nataku doesn't want them, I'll follow your advice.

Those are some cool braces. I have yet to see anything other than crappy belts at the places I frequent.

I wont lie and say I like eBay, but I have, you could say, a mistrust of eBay which means I will only list for an auction if the item will yield good money.

Another main issue with selling though eBay is the time consuming nature of it, and if an item is not worth much more than $15 then it is hardly worth my time. My last auction took me 1/2 an hour to write, and then a further 1/2 hour to pack and post the item. That is 1 hour of my time. If I sold something for over $30 maybe it is worth it, but less than this.....

Power sellers can get around this since in one hit they maybe ship a dozen or so items at once, possibly twice a week or more. A small time dude like me, it is one at a time.

Thanks for the reply Achilles. I did check completed eBay listings, but the shoes weren't the same, and the price range was all over the place!

It would be. List them with BIN of $400 and allow an offer and see if anyone takes the bait.

Exactly my sentiments.

spent saturday morning running around, having a bunch of near-misses and finally a win. hit a couple of thrifts, found my first borelli shirt in the wild, but it looked a little faded and wasn't my size so i passed. nice buttons, though. next place found a gold trumpeter double-breasted navy blazer ... awesome material, little big, but putting it on i just felt like the commodore, so i passed. hit a marshall's and found the remnant of the big sale ... a brioni dress shirt, but at $129, didn't seem like much of a steal. searched for those $69 cucinelli jackets, but they must have been hiding. it was jam-packed with prl lambswool and merino vnecks at $39 in a whole range of colors, though. went to probably the single most depressing tjmaxx i've ever seen and found absolutely zero ... well, there was a white leather affliction jacket with studs and chains ... just not me. but next door was a goodwill i'd never been to so i stopped in ... first thing i saw: a gorgeous burgundy pringle cashmere sweater. really soft, thick material. tried it on and though it was a slight bit snug, nice fit. $5.

The $69 Cucinelli cashmere jacket is a mythological beast.
