I am a strictly non-denominational trader.

 

Trades? Anybody?

You know, up here in Canada, I have very little trouble finding nice stuff in smaller sizes. Noooooo trouble at all.

 

Or do you guys not know that we like to make jokes about how you're all fatties?

What was the consensus on the best method to fix printed silk ties with minor creasing?
post #50496 of 109553
^^ I'd try some gentle steaming. It may not remove creases completely, but it should be an improvement. I've revived many ties that were smashed at the bottom of thrift store bins this way.
post #50497 of 109553

Yep, with minor creasing steaming should help.

post #50498 of 109553
I'll give the steamer a try. I remember someone commenting that they may cause the print to bleed though.

That's absurd. You Canadians are way too polite to make fun of us. And scared to lose our protection.

Some recent pickups:

 

AVAILABLE: Eton checkered shirt in contemporary/slim fit (size 15/38), reluctantly available (sleeves are too long for me, they are roughly 34"):

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

AVAILABLE: Canali Proposata very heavy blue wool overcoat (size EU 54 R/US 44 R), I believe it is the most recent label, but I do not know how long the label has been in use:

Versus from the Gianni Versace era black pants (probably not worth very much, but they fit me), not available:

So I went back to the same SA to (1) possibly shop for components to my Jim-Halpert-as-Dwight-Schrute Halloween costume (just eBayed it in the end) and (2) pick up that Hugo Boss I left last time. Wound up having a pretty solid time! ALL AVAILABLE

First, a beautiful, pink BB shirt (17.5x34. I've heeded the warning I got after my first go around about not really trying to flip BB shirts, not always worth the effort, but here this fits me (snugly) too, so screw it.



Then a red/green/blue checked Burberry London OCBD. Size L, made in USA.

Someone liked Burberry... Charcoal 34R super 100's. Pleated.

Then the Hugo Boss SC I went back for. Charcoal, tagged 44R (though I think it's a bit larger). 85% wool, feels nice. This was worth the kop, yea?

Then what (I think) is the real gem of the trip. Paul Stuart SC! Great pattern, IMO. 70/30 silk/wool blend. Can someone help me with advice on how to measure a jacket for sizing? The tag has just 4_ on it for size.

Not as cool as all you guys who find harder stuff/Viagra/Cialis, but my first medication in the PS pocket. rotflmao.gif


Finally an advice request. Ike Behar Ben Silver dress shirt. To buy or not to buy?

Jetted pockets and that gorge uhoh.gif

To your question, buttons on the left, you sure it's not just a size 4?

Maybe, what would that translate to in standard US sizes?

Just looks super dated. Unvented too?

I'm wondering if it's a women's jacket based on button orientation (although it does indeed look like a men's jacket), so I have no clue how that would translate.

Can't you just have the initials pulled? It's just thread right?
