On the Oxxford, im going to take a pic when I get it all together. I have no idea why, but that is by FAR the most common good stuff I find. In 1 week I snagged 7SC, 2 suits, and 4 pair of pants, 2 FF. So I now have like 3 suits and 12 SC of theirs in my posession.... lol. The Despos is a BEAST. Hand attached collar, pick stitching all the way down, and you can just feel how substantial and... hairy the canvas is. Its approx a 44R btw. I'm probably going to have to sell it on BS (my first) because I don't think it will get the love it deserves, and the $$$ I want on Ebay.

Despos is a member here, so you should get the love in the B&S.

Measurements on the T&A's, I'm not really sure how to measure the neck, so I just used the tape from button to button hole, so about 18 inches. Shoulder to shoulder is 22 inches, shoulder to cuff is 26 inches, pit to pit is 30 inches, boc is 37 inches, soooo, most likely, a rotund basketball player?? Probably just throw these on the bay as a lot and let them sit there until someone this size decides they need a bunch of custom shirts. Unless any of you guys are that size. peepwall[1].gif

Wasn't he raising money to pay some sort of fine to stay out of jail?  Maybe he didn't succeed...

I could be completely wrong about this though.

I didnt' think they still used that logo or that full leather sole, do they? Where are they made? (USA>India>China et al.)

 

 

The newer soles and logos are much different than these. I assume these are mid-late 80's? Looks somewhat similar to this pair: http://www.classicshoesformen.com/shoes/new-florsheim-imperial-antiqued-hand-sewn-penny-loafer-circa-1985-42e

So the sleeve length... You measured it like a sport coat, dropping from top of the sleeve at the shoulder seam down to the cuff? In normal sleeve measurements from middle of below the collar to the sleeve I'm a 37. And boc is what, length from bottom of collar? These measurements sound near spot on for me, shy of the length (shirt I just tried on/measured was 33 or 34 length down the back. Color me interested in trying one of these.

 

Also, would you by chance be a medium in Gitman Vintage?sly.gif I picked up a shirt the other day that I had planned on sending to the 'bay because it's actually still available in stores, but when I saw it, I thought to myself this screams eazy.

What a wonderful haul, Eazye! I especially like the upwards curving lapels on the Brioni.

Most of the Oxxfords are 40/41R. one is a suit, and the camel colored one is you guessed it camel hair! despos tag for grendel. has anyone else ever seen oxxford sport?

Yea BOC = bottom of collar. I wear a small in most shirts, so might be too big for me. Let me know if you want one of these, I'd rather them go to good dudes on here than to the bay. On another note, I decided to see if this good luck would keep going and stopped in at a place on my way to the grocery store. I came out with what could be the most wearable piece of Robert Graham I've ever seen. Tan, completely unstructured, un-padded, summer blazer. patch pockets, 4 button working surgeon cuffs, single vented. Even the lining is pretty cool, and a touch of Thom Browne on the sleeves. Size XL, Mexicutioner, I'm looking at you.

Wow!  Great hauls Eazy & JP!  JP - If any of those Oxxfords have 18-ish shoulders, you know I'm in!

 

Also, there's a new thrift forum out there?

I will be hanging around Styleforum for the forseeable future, but my post counts are on a steady decline and that is purely a reflection that I have other activities distracting me at the moment.
I have stayed quiet on the Frenchy front - I did not know the fellow very well and had little time to form a feeling of dislike or friendship towards him. He certainly appeared to be quite the character, although whether this was really him or an alter ego behind the sanctuary of a keyboard I do not know.
I did not catch his so called comments deriding anything Jewish, so cannot give an opinion on what was written. With people nowadays joining the PC brigade, I would imagine that what he wrote was blown out of proportion. Enlighten me please what was written by Frenchy / Valium that caused this furor so I can understand more where this ban came from (i.e. deserved ban due to unjust bullying / harassment or undeserved due to him just pissing off some thin skinned bigwigs around here).
From the moderator perspective, there is no such thing as an all inclusive policy invoking the totality of free speech. This site could theoretically be shut down if certain topics come up - all it would take are one or two pro-terrorist supporters here to throw Styleforum in chaos and subject to FBI investigation. Same would happen if certain members came out pro-pedophilia in the name of free speech. Free speech is conditioned I presume on the laws of the land, and if racism or racist activity are deemed a serious violation of human rights, then so called free speech in support of this activity would surely be deemed subject to moderation and ban worthy.
Attorneys / lawyer members here, please enlighten me if I am way off base smile.gif
here you go let me know what you think (read all his posts going forward on this thread) http://www.styleforum.net/t/245586/depaul-students-try-to-ban-jewish-food-retailers-yes-this-was-in-2011-not-1939/195
