^^ Yup. 44 is a 17.5, so 17 is right for a 43. Nice find, by the way!
Thank you! Yeah - Charvet, Turnbull & Asser, Hilditch & Key and Harvie & Hudson are my favorite shirts that I find at the shops... still waiting to find a Kiton. Had to leave 3 orphaned Zegna suit jackets and one Zegna blue blazer with brass buttons (one missing) -- all from the same donor (size 46) and all with the Zegna label written in lowercase with a lowercase 'z' - so I'm guessing they were at least a decade old.
Yeah, 17 is right, you going to sell this? Just my size.
Sorry - I'm a 17 too! I haven't even tried the shirt on yet, but it's good to know it's in my size! I will be bringing some nice shirts in other sizes though to the B&S Yard Sale in NYC if anyone's interested...
Not a thrift store bragging story, but I picked up a $1400 John Varvatos mainline blazer for $255 at the warehouse sale in New York yesterday. Gray wool herringbone in size 38R. Made in Italy. Fits me perfectly. Lush material, double-vented, fully-lined, half-canvassed, etc. I think it even has horn buttons. Remember the tweed blazer from Uniqlo that was featured in GQ a couple months ago? It's NOTHING compared to this thing. It was about the only nice thing they had at the sale in my size. Shirts sucked (odd fit, and see-through material), and so did the suits (mostly black pinstriped).
found a Turnbull & Asser shirt ($4 CAN) that fits like a glove as well as a Paul Smith tie ($1 CAN), Ralph Lauren brown polo and a great Tweet sportcoat ($3 CAN). Might pick up the Aquascutum trench that was there. Was lined and in pristine condition. Pretty Don Draper IMO.
The local Goodwill has a Fallan and Harvey orphan suit jacket in glen plaid for $7.50. Size seemed like a 46L or even XL. Really well made jacket with lots of hand work, but useless without the trousers.
