I think it must be a game that rich people play. They compete to see who can spend the most money on the most awful item in a display of wanton consumption so that can bask in superiority and laugh at those who cannot afford such items.

Just as a heads up to anybody who's doing a deal with me right now / whatever, I'm going to be out of town for the next week and won't be able to log on to SF if you need to contact me the best way is to send me an email through ebay, it'll come to the ebay app on my phone. Thanks

GORGEOUS Pal Zileri Gruppo Forall w/ Loro Piana Super 120's suit. It's lighter blue than navy and a very light summer-weight fabric. The jacket fits me wonderfully, but the pants are too slim and can't be let out enough. baldy%5B1%5D.gif I'm debating just keeping the jacket and swapping the buttons for light horn or MOP.

Rough estimates: 

18.5" shoulders
22" pit to pit
24" sleeve (with about 1.5" to let out)
33" pants waist
29" inseam w/ 1.5" cuff

There were a bunch of other Pal Zileri Gruppo Forall suits... I left 2 that I didn't like the fabric and seemed kind of dated. I brought this one home in an olive color. I also found an exact copy of this in a blue / black fabric, but couldn't find the pants. Unfortunately I found this bit of damage by the pocket as I was taking pictures... Fortunately the tags are still on so I can return it unless someone here wants it for cost + shipping.

350x525px-LL-a780bcd6_IMG_5792.jpeg
Marked a 16/41 with a C next to it... Seems kind of short, is that what the "C" means?

Also these cool Brooks Brothers Irish Linen navy pants... Marked a 35x30, really 34 waist with 2" to be let out. I just got some navy linen pants from jkidd, so I don't NEED these... I could have them let out, but if someone wants these let me know

Hey guys, this is totally off topic but I had a laundry crisis tonight. I left a pen in my pants pocket and the ink stained 2 of my best fitting white dress shirt with stripes. Anyone know how to get ink out of fabric without damaging the dye?

 

I've been thinking about using Carbona Stain Devil or Biz Stain Fighter. Anyone has experiences using those? Anyone got any ideas?

 

The ink stain is pretty bad...

Good job.  I also failed at finding some golf clubs to use.  But, I still feel good about the trip because I now have a staple navy HF suit thanks to grendel.

Well at least she's not selling her worn panties. Yet. Or at least not through eBay.
