Sup dudes. Used to follow this thread daily but took a hiatus for awhile and only recently returned. I've been meaning to take photos and measurements of some thrifted SCs that either didn't work out or I've been hoarding with the intention of selling/trading. If one of you guys really wants one of these I suppose I would entertain selling, but I WOULD GREATLY PREFER TO TRADE. Some of the recent discussion about people whoring their wares in this thread struck a chord with me. Generally, I like the idea of this being a place to trade and B&S being the place to sell (yes, I realize that there's a dedicated thrift-trading thread, but honestly, I feel that this is a better venue due to the amount of viewers/posters/great finds). I realize that not everyone feels that way and I got no beef with people that post to sell, I've done it myself at least a couple of times I'm sure.
So, without further adieu, the SCs!
Measurements will read as follows: Shoulders/Sleeve Length/Length from BoC/Chest
First is a HSM GT blue plaid SC, tagged 40R. Awesome pattern, high quality, made in the USA, yada yada yada. Almost brand new, still has a retail tag in the chest pocket for $595. Wish it fit.
This is a Hugo Boss 3 roll 2.5 blue blazer, tagged EU48. Very nice fabric, side vents, again, almost brand new. Tag looks familiar, pretty sure it's Italian, lardini?
Very badass black and grey herringbone tweed with a red overcheck. Half lined. I had this tailored in the chest and waist to fit me but I already have two herringbone tweed SCs. That said, it's boss, so it might take something pretty cool for me to trade it away.
Basic Tom James glen plaid SC. Still has lots of wear in it left. Tried to take it in in the shoulders and waist but it just wasn't enough.
Saks house brand 100% bamboo SC, tagged 40R. Cool weave, like a navy and royal blue mix. Again, too big in the chest and waist. Never got around to having it tailored and found another SC w/ a very similar weave.
HSM GT navy blazer with cool overchecks, tagged 46R. This is a slightly heavier fabric, perfect for fall/winter. Literally brand new. Pockets are still basted shut.
As far as trades are concerned, as long as it's fresh, and I think it would fit, I'm down for anything really. I usually take a 38R in SCs and suits, 32"W/32"L in trousers, 15-15.5"/34" in shirts, and 10-10.5 C/D in shoes. For SCs/suits the measurements should be close to those of the tweed SC, with .5-1" allowance for stylistic variation (roped vs. unpadded shoulders, etc.). Holla at me, and good luck thrifting!
