Apologies for not using the Quote option when replying! These comments are in reply to the West Coast member who did renovations during the 50% off Salvation Army thrift weekend in Canada. We complained that there was not a Ferragamo to be found and that was a first.

2 pairs of RRL. One selvedge, one not selvedge. I'm going to hold onto them for now until I figure out what to do with them. Both are about 26. Super small with 34 inseam...ffffuuuu.gif 

Tagged 26 or measure 26?

You can block international bidders. Its a PIA, you need look under: Exclude shipping locations and click each that you want to exclude, including Hawaii/Alaska/APO.

Wow, crazy find for a thrift - congrats, man!  Maybe you can take the other jeans that are too small and construct a 40s jacket that actually fits you.

lol8[1].gifI just might! Actually just got a PM from a member wanting a pair for his girl. Awww, that's so sweet. These are small enough to fit a thin woman.

I can pretty much get any of the suits for $20.00, the ties would be maybe a buck.

I know a similar saying, too.

Come eat, Dick as in come and eat something, Dick, which is short for Richard.

vs.

Come eat dick as in come and eat a penis. Dick is a slang for penis. Yikes! Don't ever make that mistake! teacha.gif

I think besides the jacket could use a slimming, the length is right on. I prefer my jacket's hemline to end around my hallucis longus of my thumb when in robot stance.

I can fit a 27 in apc with a 34 inseam so maybe these might work for me as well depending on stretch...

Just thrifted the nicest suit i have yet to come across.  Mabro handmade Italy for Lee Newman with Surgeon Cuffs.  Don't think it has ever been worn, just a bit too small for me sadly, its a 50R Euro.

 

And a Vintage really heavy Woolrich Hunting Jacket with game pocket in back, my research seems to put this in the 1940-50's???  It is in really nice condition.

Bro, I can hit you up with the deets but I don't think these will fit you because when I tried them on, I couldn't even get my thigh in. If you think the Levi's selvedge I was telling you about are too skinny on you, these are way skinnier.

Authenticity check...



My gut says yes, since it was next to this:
