Dan - nice score! Can't wait to see pics.

This is decent stuff, right?

post #64922 of 124830
^^^ Yep, that is the good stuff! Nice find! I'd say late 70's.


Just one thing today. Beautiful recent Hickey Freeman Black/Tan Mini Houndstooth windowpane suit. 2 button. Commissioned in 2005. Not sure if it was ever worn. Waist pockets and the inside left pocket are still basted shut. No vent. Double pleated and cuffed trousrs. Fits like a 42/44 L. Available at cost+gas+shipping. Otherwise it will hit the bay tomorrow.
Measurements (Click to show)

Jacket -

Chest: 22 1/2"
Shoulders: 19"
Sleeves: 28" with 0" to let out. No faux buttonholes for easy alterations as the sleeves are very long.
Length (from top of collar) 34"


Trousers -

Waist: 18" (36 waist) with 2 1/4" to let out
Inseam: 33 " with 1" to let out
Cuffs: 1 1/2"
Leg Opening: 8 3/4"

Nice!! That truck was a steal! Very nice bike, too!

It looks like it was barely worn - no gunk around the neck. It only has the tiniest bit of wear to one of the sleeve cuffs.
I like it, and it fits, but I've already got a couple of parkas. Available for trade, if anybody is interested. The jacket is size large. I'm a 41/42, and it fits well.

It's an entry-level trick/free ride bike (well at least set up that way right now with the seat slanted, seatpost all the way down, and the steep sloping top tube). Deore components are somewhere around the level of Shimano 105. The Tora fork is a decent fork, just heavy and not much adjustability. Would probably cost around $800 to get something similar new today. Should be an easy $2-300 on eBay, but that's just an estimate since I couldn't find a comparable competed listing.

Anyone ever heard of Rosso Fiornetino Florence shirts?  Pretty nice material and construction, but the smallest 17/43 I've ever tried on (fits like a 16.5/43 and short in the body), so available.

Abercrombie, made in Italy navy wool Peacoat.  So awesome and minty. Size small

It would probably be better off selling in on Craigslist, and not have to deal with the pain of taking it apart and shipping it.   I've bought a couple nice bikes of craigslist with no issue. I'd imagine selling it should be pretty easy  once the weather warms up a bit.

Not me, i've gotten really cheap...spoiled since thrifting.  I'm used to paying $2-3 for my ties.

None of these below were over $3, save you're money and thrift more.

Indeed! That would be really nice for some young lady! You should surprise someone with it!

Meanwhile, I finally made it to a Value Village that I learned about months ago but couldn't get to until today.

Another piece of the formal rig fell into place when I scored a Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece spread collar pleated front formal shirt. It's going to need some collar treatment but otherwise, it's one of the most incredible shirts I've ever felt.

Thanks, all, for the help. I couldn't find a completed eBay listing, either, and other online ads were all over the map, from $200 to $650, with component lists that might as well have been written in Greek. My first inclination was to put it on CL for $150 (I'm not keen on shipping it) but I'm glad I checked here first. The depth of knowledge is astounding.

As has been said before, it's rare to find decent bicycles--this is the third worth buying in the past five years for me. They were once fairly commonplace.

Not sure on the size. I was in a hurry. I'd guess a 42-44, will check tonight. The Faconnable will be BIN and I suspect it will sit for a month or so.
