But I just can't wait, because I got me one of these:

Wife's been after me for one. Literally sitting there next to the register. Wasn't cheap, but it will pay dividends in other ways.
Also, my local was having half price day. 5 pairs of Zanella platinum unicorns (in various state of disrepair / stanky-ness; hope dry cleaning will address) plus 1 Talbott square in blue paisley dot (hand rolled edges) plus 2 wool knit ties plus 1 Scabal pret a porter cotton seersucker-esque stripe jacket (stained to hell, but for what I paid, worth the risk if my dry cleaner can get it clean) plus 1 J Crew unstructured linen blazer plus various other home goods-y things.
Oh, and bigger guys (XXL) who like Vineyard Vines: Get at me. I've got a nice blue/white "whale" shirt (that's what the shirt tag says it's called, not some snarky reference to the size)

I F'd up and left one of these a week ago. It was priced at $55, but I'd just bought one for $75 to replace the one my wife has. Just sold the old one, which had a smaller motor and a less-groovy splash guard, for $100 on CL.

I bought the professional series in red in the US a couple of years ago. I then shipped it to Austria and beat it home. Cost and shipping was somewhere in the neighborhood of $600, but at that time with the exchange rate I saved about €500-700. I still can't find the professional series here, but in the shops the normal one is around €500.

They're heavy and made in the US, so the costs here are enormous. I do need a huge transformer to operate it here, though.

So, who makes the made in Italy shoes for Hickey Freeman?

Also, I'm calling off the dogs on the 17.5-34 French cuff spread collar shirts. Amazingly...The first rack I walked up to had 2, freshly dry cleaned. One white, one pink. They are both cheap no-name brands, but they fit well and they were $1 each. Thanks everyone for your help and offers.

This would normally be the case, but this shirt is for the size I am now, I will likely (hopefully) be 40 lbs smaller in the next 6 months. Already down almost 30 lbs from May. 
Oh.

I'll get some measurements later tonight. I went to that auction around noon when it starts. The mannequins were in the furniture section of the auction which does not usually start until 5ish. I went back around 5 and it was going to be another 3 hours before they would have gotten to the mannequins so I said "nahhhh" and went home.

Not the right place, but whatever... On Church's does this mean size 9.5F?
