Those holes look workable to me. The pattern is simple enough, you might want to try it yourself.

The real stuff has this woman hold hands with a girl that kinda looks like a sail boat, if that makes sense. Well, I only have a few real Lavin ties and a few real Lavin shirts that says "Lavin" and nothing else, think "Dior". I've yet to see a good Lavin SC. I'm sure DM7 and a few LA guys on here have seen it or handled it.

 

Why wouldn't that make sense?

 

 

Also, did you mean "Lanvin?"

I usually keep my questions simple, such as "Please describe the smell of the armpits and the crotch area. Does the material have any significant taste?"

Almost forgot to mention this:

 

Anyone need a pair of burgundy AE Sanfords in size 15D? Will proxy. I think these are the biggest shoes I've ever seen (or at least bothered to look at) at a thrift store. If all else fails, they'll make classy clown shoes.

today I have made a horrifying discovery... I am a freak of nature... a long armed freak of nature

my mtm shirt came from moderntailor and it fits pretty well (I need to make the arm opening bigger for instance) but what really astounded me is that a 27 length sleeve is too short meaning I will need a horrifying 28+ inch sleeve crazy.gif I am going to just have to get rid of my entire shirt collection and go mtm because these 15.5 35's won't cut it anymore, good news is that someone in that size can get a whole new shirt wardrobe bigstar[1].gif I got everything you need, isaia, burberry gucci ect ect mwink[1].gif

forgive the crazy long hair, bad pictures, and wrinkles but I think it fits well

I've never found Lorenzini in my size its always 17 and up. I don't know why they don't flip better the few recent ones I've come across have awesome construction.

Been finding a lot of stuff in my size or nearly my size recently, which is a welcome addition to my overstuffed closet if not my anemic money supply.

 

UNAVAILABLE

 

'70s Daks DB, double-vented navy blazer w/ brass buttons.  37R, but will get slimmed so super unavailable!  Exactly the tradly navy blazer I've been looking for!

Super-heavy solid metal buttons.  Feels like solid brass but maybe plated?

even the interior button is solid metal!

Double-vented:

Light grey Aquascutum trench in 38R.  Found this stuffed in the women's section as a Large, but it fits pretty well if on the loose side, so keeping unless you can trade me for a DB khaki or medium-light grey trench of similar quality in 36R

70's Harris Tweed for myself that fits like a glove, but needs a good cleaning
Photobucket

 

3-button center-vented charcoal BB Makers Brooksease, 46L.  Going to a trade partner.
Photobucket

 

PRL 3-button center-vent flat-front seersucker suits in 40R and slim 42R.  Both are NWOT, vents still basted shut.  Beige/tan one is made in Macau, but has sick smoked MOP buttons.  Blue/white one is made in Italy, still has label on sleeve.  Both going to a trade partner.

Any 17.5x33 need some staple shirts?  Normally don't pick this up but was super-cheap and didn't need the treatment.

Anybody know what the hell this is?  Looks like gold fill, but aside from that, no clue.  This is about the size of a small matchbox or lighter.  This is not available until I figure out what on Earth this is, but might be afterward.

Any ideas?

 

Also found the Balmain I'm not looking for in charcoal DB SC/orphan 37R, crap ton of casual shirts in my size including a Hugo Boss with nice smoked MOP buttons and a cerulean 100% cotton tie with no maker tags (just the sort of thing I've been looking for to go with my summer linens & cottons).

 

Thrift fit w/ new overcoat: (Click to show)

After layering up, it seems the sleeves are a tad short, damn.  This is without slimming, though.

Jacket (not seen):  Daffy's
PS (not seen):  Michelson's, C21

Definitely looks like a sailboat to me too. I have only ever seen one orphan jacket in the wild. It looked like it had been shot by a semi-auto bb gun it had so many moth holes. In my brief time with the jacket, the quality felt great.

Shirt looks good from here. Are you sure you need a longer sleeve? The first picture the sleeve looks about right with a lots of wrinkles shortening the shirt. The second pic does make it look short though.
