It is best to measure a shirt in the conventional way; neck-sleeve (from middle of neck tag to end of sleeve).

There are NO makers tags frown.gif is there any possible way I could figure out who made this? Since no content, Im guessing that its a predominantly linen/silk blend. It may just be super baller linen. 42R

I hit some thrift stores in Little Rock and Hot Springs a few years ago. Expected a wasteland but scored several pairs of Bill's Khakis, a pair of Oxxford wool khakis and a pair of green military issue pants which dated to the early 1950's.

I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that the jacket is a Luciano Barbera.

Condition, condition, condition. Cartier eyeglass frames are the most sought after / flippable IMO. They are rare, most have wooden shafts. Flip prices can go for +/- $500, or more on eBay.

 

Some can be reconditioned or repaired as well - Maui Jim offer's repair services and I understand that Oliver Peoples used to offer repair services at their boutique's (Not sure, but worth the call to check). 

 

Spend some time looking on what sells on eBay. That will give you the best answer in regard to specific brands and models.

I've had mixed results at best. I had a lot of interest but I have only sold a few pairs that were big name. confused.gif

That was a great thread (or was it in here). Either way, it ranked up there with the ammo bag discussion peepwall[1].gif

A big thanks to everyone for all of the suggestions, I'm going to talk it over with my wife and see what she thinks. Route 1 was high on our list and we've talked about spending an entire vacation on the Californian coast. Another trip would be one dedicated to the Pacific northwest. I suppose the first thing is making sure my wife can get 3 weeks off in May biggrin.gif

I have a bunch on PMs in my inbox, so I'm going to try to get back to everyone soon! I was watching Felix Baumgartner jump and then the press conference. Amazing!

The Pacific Northwest is the most beautiful "place" in America and there are several driving routes as good/better than the 1 from Santa Cruz to SF.

But, the weather doesn't clear up west of the Cascades until about July.

Today's finds, both available:

Sweet point (semi spread?) collar shirt from The Andover Shop, someone remind me what this fabric is called again?

Details (Click to show)


Some Slight under collar puckering:

Measurements:
p2p: 22"
neck: 15.5"
sleeve (shoulder seam to end of cuff): 25"

Also picked up these BB Loro Piana wool pants with a short person inseam.
Details (Click to show)



Noticed when I got home they have the smallest hole near the right pocket, hardly noticable:

Measurements:
Waist 16"
Rise 11"
Inseam: 27.5" + 3"
Leg opening " 7.5"

Left behind 3x Domenico Vacca, should I pick these up? Pants seemed like reverse orphans to me: Vacca (Click to show)
Shirt was EU 40 with a redic spread and two collar buttons:

Both pants were 52 aka 36 W:


Also had to leave behind a beautiful grey wool BBGF that unfortunately had been orphaned.

Who makes Domenico Vacca's pants? I thrifted a pair of pants a month ago with the same size tag, but no DV or any other maker tag.

Okay, hopefully they lasted the day. Yeah, I did some Ebay searching when I returned from the store and definitely regretted leaving those behind.
