I'll check the "collection" tonight if I have time. I may have some 48L but 50 will be pushing it.

easy way to tell without measuring: ask yourself "was that the biggest coat i've ever seen in my life?" if yes, then it's US sizing. if not, then it's euro sizing.

yeah, if it could double as a tent it's not euro.

I dunno, I've sold lots of 50L stuff recently. It's not that uncommon.

haha I guess it's Euro Sized then, which if indeed true, it should measure to approx 39.5" (50 * 0.79) p2p? I'll measure it when I get home anyway as now I am curious...

On the way home from dinner out, I stopped by one of my regular joints right at closing. I had just been in the day before, and with only a little bit of time, didn't feel like going through every jacket again. I have a hard time remembering every shoe or jacket I see, so I often have to go through them each time. It's a pain when it's a large rack.

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.

This.

Should measure like a 40R, about 21" pit to pit laid flat.

Eazy, could they be Bass? Could the G be another S, it sort of looks like it to me. I found 1 pair of well constructed OLD bass V-Cleats. Barrel has them, could you compare Barrel?
