I'm not sure, but if you're interested, I can measure when I get home....

So I go through the shoes more thoroughly and then glance over the suits. There are some gaps, with a jacket or two kind of sticking out. It's easy enough to do a quick flip to check the label on those, so I check a couple of them. First one is junk, but second one is Canali Milano: my first Italian. It's a nice brown herringbone tweed in 54L—most definitely EU sizing (converts to 42.5 US). My brother is a 42L, so I have to check with him to see if he wants it, but if not, it will be available.
I have to work on my car, so no pics until later.
It also reminded me that I actually did find a cloth item on my grail list a little while ago: an Oxxford SC that is a little big on me. It was my first high-end find, so the temptation to make it fit was really high. I had the waist and below the collar worked on, even though the shoulders are a little big.

I SWEAR I didn't just take this from the PTO site today. They must have gotten it from me....or else it's a huge coincidence.
Not sure what your concern or question is. Searching, finding, acquiring items to resale is only a single part of the greater challenge. Selling, marketing, and developing a larger distribution system is actually perhaps a more difficult part.
Actual measurements are larger than stated numbers by about 2" to 4". Older ones seem to be closer to the 4". A 40R would have about a 21"-22" PTP.
Either way, I'm back in action and should be PMing you all within a day or so. Git it gone so I can go back to thrifting!
A co-worker has just had the temerity to dare me that I cannot Bagger Vance it up on our next golfing trip.
So if any of you mofos comes across some knickers (36ish waist), knee socks and funny woolen golf-y hat, git at meh. And bowties. I'll need a bowtie.
