^^I have seen this on a few shirts and I believe it is the French cuff equivalent of having a 34/35" sleeve for example.
post #50192 of 112739

A clutch of ties. All available.

Robert Talbott; Robert Talbott, Polo RL; Paul Stuart

 

 

 

A Barbour Country shirt, L. Available

 

 

And I recall this "not being the Burberry you're looking for"

No size tag, but measures like a 40L (p2p: 21.5; waist: 20.75; Shoulder: 18; BOC: 32; Sleeve: 25). Available.

 

 

Except that it's Loro Piana 100% Cashmere. Completed listings on the bay seem positive.

Malo is a very high end Italian cashmere brand. While not so well known, that cashmere quality is probably very high and retailed for hundreds of dollars.

I just sold a similar one, in a 46, which is nowhere near as desirable as this size for $200+. Well done.

You've got my measurements, so buzz me if that's a 39s-40s. biggrin.gif

My concerns have to do with the seller's description:

 

YOU ARE LOOKING AT A: Pair of Levi's 501 XX Big E Redline Selvedge jeans. From my research, these seem to be from the 40's. These are the real deal and I am very excited to bring them to the Ebay community.
CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition. The one issue is that it is missing the size tag patch on the back of the jeans.
 
I notice that he doesn't say that they're actually from the 40s. Rather, they "seem to be from the 40s." Recent LVC copies of these jeans also "seem to be from the 40s."
 
Next, he assures, "These are the real deal..." Well, Levi's LVC reissues are the "real deal" as well — right down to the aged and rusted rivets.
 
Finally, the fact that the size tag patch is missing makes it far more difficult to establish whether these are actually 70 year old jeans or if they're 2 or 3 year old selvage LVCs.
 
It's hard for me to believe that folks are bidding these up to $3k with practically no established history or provenance. Frankly, in my opinion (with the obvious caveats in tow), these look too new to actually be 70 years old.

They may be obvious, but here are the reasons that make this pair so attractive:

- Classic jean: this pair is apparently from the 40s. It is the most desirable 501 cut as it is a true slim/straight fit

- Fantastic condition: for a pair that is close to 70 years old, there is still a lot of color left in the denim, and there are hardly any wear marks

- Great pics & description: the seller makes it easy to visually very the jean's authenticity and date.

- Common size: opens it up to a lot of buyers for personal use and collecting. These may even be a decent size for the Japanese market

Are the two ties on the left available?! drool.gif  As far as the Burberry, that is a good pickup. I sold one of those sometime ago in blue, with mop buttons for well over $100, and I take terrible pictures and have a sub-par listing template.

Eazy, that's a fabulous haul and evidence that karma lives--well done. If you find any more Press or Andover shop in the larger sizes, you know what to do.

I struggle with sizing these overcoats, but the p2p is 48"

 

Probably a bit large for you but, I have a similar one I also picked up today with a 46" p2p
