Damn prices have lept up.......
Taking some pics of stuff I did pick up this time. Not too bad stuff but had to leave the very expensive better stuff behind.......
Lots of PM's over the Thom Browne too many to reply to one at a time.
First, wish to thank you all for advice regarding worthiness of pickup. I owe all you guys a debt of gratitude for taking time to PM me
As for the sizes, they were a SZ 4
whatever the heck that means. I tried them on and they were laughably small on me (I am nailed on a 45L but can swing both ways from 44L to 46L and 48L on some fashion Tom Ford cuts). These suits felt 42S to me - they were super super short that is for sure. The overall structure would imply these were designed with a man of 5'8" in mind. The arm lengths came up about 3" off my cuff so approximating the sleeve length I guess around 23.5 - 24". The Lapels are also really skinny and the button stance (3 button) smelt of a designer's attempt to recreate the 1960's. As for build quality, they were pretty dang good, full canvassed horn buttons etc.... There were two suits, one was a charcoal solid and the other was a light navy solid.
As for pickup, going back tomorrow to see if still there.
The Burberry Prorsum suit was nothing that impressive - no canvassing and typical skinny lapel Italian made crap. Was an airforce blue color, size 50 in EU sizing. It was not the Burberry London or Burberry Brit stuff.....
Ravozollo was unsized but an unvented nothing spectacular suit. Well made though - this thing is up there with Kiton etc when we talk quality. Shame about the low gorge lapels and stiff shoulders. Estimated size = 44R. It was a charcoal pin.
Please do not PM me asking for dibs on the Burberry or Thom Browne because I left them behind and have to pick up. If they aint in tomorrow this could all be moot point.
If they are still there I will put up pics and happily proxy for anyone wanting them.
Will someone here like Brian or Nataku or Spoo etc please pass me your cell phone number so I can text to get immediate advice. I will keep your contact detail strictly confidential and trust me I am not a loon or weirdo that will be sending pics of my cock or anything like that.... Reason for phone number: It is bullshit I have to go back - the thrift store is 30 mile haul ass making a 60mile round trip. Could have saved myself the extra effort if I had a question about something and a yay or nay reply there and then! My phone has no WiFi ability so cannot send PM's when out on the hunt
Could get a new phone but I have phonephobia, it took me ages to learn mine and I do not wish to have to learn again how to operate a new phone
