PM me if you want me to pick it up for you tomorrow.

You'll definitely have PMs, but on the off chance you don't, pick it up anyway.

I will if someone wants it, I am not in this for the cheese and it is too big for me.

Four new-old-stock Paul Stuart shirts in my size. One club collar, one button down, two point collars.

Anyone care to guess the vintage? They were each originally priced $32.

The front one lackin Chicago & Tokyo appears to be from before the mid-1990s or so:  http://www.nytimes.com/1990/06/01/business/company-news-paul-stuart-to-expand-in-asia-mainly-in-japan.html.

The interior lining- is it supposed to be soft? This isn't as soft as I'd expect,
Though it looks like there might be a removable liner that's missing. Help!


Definitely a legit tag. The lining on my Beaufort is a soft tweed woven wool, so not exactly soft, but warm. There's a couple different kinds of zip-out liners, one that's just a shearling-looking liner and one that's a polarquilt quilted vest like I got from someone here. Best outerwear out there for the money, IMO.

A couple for the bigger guys....


NWT Barbour cords 40 x 37.5 unfinished (claimed)


RRL Jeans 40 x 31 (available)

This is ironic, but in my short time in a store yesterday, I left a shearling-looking Barbour liner vest. When I saw it, I dashed through the store looking for the coat, but it was nowhere to be found. If you end up picking this coat up, let me know if you want me to go back and check the size for you. I'd be happy to proxy it if you wanted. It was roughly €7.

Good to know. I have only ever found a tie from the Sartoriale line. It is really nice and definitely better than the grupo forall stuff, like you said.

I'll definitely grab some pics, no matter what it is as now I'm curious. I'm 99% sure it will turn out to be nothing but a huge disappointment, but there's always a hope. You reminded me that i have a couple of phone numbers of guys here in order to message pictures of stuff I find for them. I have an iPhone, so as long as it's on iMessage, they're free biggrin.gif

Catside I would get the Zegna Couture jacket repaired if possible. Zegna Couture from relatively recent label is pretty much fairy dust man. German Sheppard bite - do not like the sound of it. At least the jacket is dark, maybe a reweaver could mend and leave virtually no trace?

Before I get to the front door some guy comes JETTING out of the store and the manager follows at full-speed. They are at a stand-off and the manager is screaming "Give me back the socks or I will taze you!!!" The guy and him are running around a car like it was from a cartoon and I am just kind of standing there enjoying the show. Finally the thief chucks the pair of socks at the managers face and runs full speed (he was pretty quick) away. I walked into the store to shop like nothing had happened...hahaha.

 

Who steals socks from Goodwill?

 

Ahahahaa! That must have been quite the sight!

Isaia Charcoal Pinstripe Suit (Not Available)

Oh yeah, and it came with a coupon for $10 off my next purchase.
