If anything its closer to a 38R with the chest and shoulders, BUT I'm surprised its tagged so large? I need 17" shoulders...

IMO, not great, but not bad.... Hope they fit. "B" is really really narrow and if your asking how you did, I hope you know what size shoe you wear.

So disappointing! That thing is awesome. 


Are there any methods you might try to remove it?

I was blinded by my greatness lol8[1].gif. Didnt see this till I actually was taking the pictures. All is not lost though. Going to toss it on ebay and see how it goes for a guy with short arms or a if someone wanted the Thom Brown look!! Was really hoping this was going to be traded for something my size halfway nice or pay for a new blazer I just bought in my size. Worst case I can always return it peepwall[1].gif

 

Spot is just shy of 2" from the end of the sleeve which is 25" from the shoulder

Picked up these two ties today. Robert Talbott on the left and Hickey-Freeman on the right. Robert Talbott looks to have been made in England. I'm keeping the Talbott, but the HF is Available.

Today finds:

APC pants tagged 36 but measure 34" x 28" (w/ almost 2" extra inches) Olive/Brown in color, pleated.

Hunting World Made in England pants...khaki/mohair (I think) material. Also tagged 36.

Had to pass om a cream Aquascutum SC. It had one small hole that looked like it could have been rewoven, but there appeared to be a weak area in the material that could have developed into a bigger hole so I left it.

So they are that narrow? This will be interesting. "searching for shoe stretcher". happy.gif

 I just want to say thank you to the wasteful people of the San Francisco Peninsula. I found these Prada shoes (my size even) for $4.50.

I got a light blue Isaia DB jacket in my size, 100% silk, light brown horn buttons. The Isaia brand tag was removed, but I recoganize the size tag! The real confusing thing about this jacket is that the model is "44280 A" on the size tag. Does it mean that it is a suit jacket? But 100% silk and nice contrasting horn buttons... I can't believe it baldy[1].gif

Alright, I also got a Z. Zegna Su Misura grey with subtle blue windowpane sportcoat in EU54 R, made in Italy in Dec. 2004. With working button holes. Available.
