one of my favorite shirts is a loose-weave white with blue windowpane Breuer that doesn't have holes for collar stays. i figured it was like that because it's a really casual shirt.

Elbow pads not pictured, it also has a waist belt that is hidden in the back.

 

Did you happen to see a 42R?

Actually, I think you pulled it off much better than most could--between the tie, shirt, PS and jacket, you had four different patterns going on, which is a lot of balls in the air, and you didn't miss by much. It takes stones to try, and you deserve props for that. If you keep at it, I think you'll eventually nail it, even if the trousers and socks make it six patterns.

Thanks! Software, but close enough. They're used to it by now... been doing it for over a year. Some of 'em even started wearing ties to work. lol8[1].gif

Yup. But leave the Pendleton--I'm a huge Pendleton fan, but it doesn't work for me and not sure if it would for anyone.

If you do it right you won't ever lose money but just the profit vs. time is not worth it after a while.

Yeah, that's the issue, more or less. I'm still small-time enough that I don't mind so long as I don't lose money. I'm in the midst of a major two-years-coming cull, and, my lord, I have made a lot of mistakes. Two dozen shirts, a dozen sweaters and a lot more got re-donated yesterday, and there's still a lot to go through. Plus I have about a dozen pairs of shoes to sell.

Tagged 10r, which I guess is TECHNICALLY a woman's size - but this would fit a 36 or slim 38 great, arms are fine length, body is right length as long as you're 5'10-ish, zipper is on the right side as on men's jacket - anybody know any reasons I couldn't cross list this on Ebay in the mens category as well? Not really convinced this is any different from a men's 36, lol, in fact all the numbers on the label match up with the men's ones on Ebay so idk. Any info on this, post it up.

Cut out the size tag?

thrift/discount/inheritance? bragging thread. Can't believe I didn't figure this out before, but a RN# search on the content label on a cashmere sweater I got a year ago turns out to be RLPL.

If anyone comes across a white or ecru OCBD in 16.5/34 slim fit at thrift prices, please proxy for me.

Passed because they were really really nice but between Spoo and Harris Tweeds we all find...not the greatest deal. But there was temptation, the NWT thing...

I can't ever seem to find a Harris, but I have found a few other brands.

They only had a 44 and a 40L here...thanks for the socks BTW, they are really nice.

They had a 40L. I wear a 42R suit jacket and the 44L was perfect for me. I'm glad it was a L and not a R, as I prefer longer sleeves on coats because I can't stand it when they ride up my wrists when I extend my arms - and I also hate coats that ride up above my waistband. Here are some more pics in case you're interested in the 40L.

Thanks, and luckily this one was significantly cheaper than that, otherwise I would have had to pass.
