post #66031 of 114439

First Pink fit!

 

And a lesson learned. I almost didn't try this on as it said 16/34 and I am a 15 1/2 but fits perfectly!

 

French cuffs too which I quite like.

Sorry for the multiple posts but I had a question about this:

 

 

 

This shirt is made of some crazy heavy cotton. Almost like denim. It's a small so it's available but are you guys familiar with this cloth or style? New one to me.

A cotton jacket can be worn on its own without anyone ever having to think you’ve just come from the office, and the trousers can be used as chinos."


Thanks for the responses. It should fit me pretty well, so I hope a successful SNIPE is in my future.

Odd haul from today. Picked up some stuff I normally wouldn't and probably some stuff I should have left behind...

 

All available

 

From top left (very top is a Levis shirt, I know nothing about denim but it's super comfortable.)

 

PBRL 17 1/2 - 35

Eton 15 1/2 - 39 (heads up, no way the neck is 15 1/2 that's my size and I couldn't even do the button)

PBRL casual small, heavy cotton, denim? I wish I knew

RL - The Big Oxford XL

BB 346 Lambswool M

Aquascutum Wool/Cashmere M

I was in a real estate closing today and the buyer's agent was wearing a pair of jeans not too different from these. Sometimes, I don't know what people are thinking.

Wow! Haha. You know, I'd probably still rock them if not for the fact that I haven't been a 32" waist in years. Pretty steady at 36.

1978 Honda CB750 (not pictured yet, currently getting modded with thrifted funds too!)
Omega SMP 9300


Nice! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Any extra funds from eBay selling that I get usually finds it's way into funding one of two things:
Money Pit 1 (Click to show)


Money Pit 2 (Click to show)

^^ When we moved a few years back, I sold about 3000 LPs. Stuff I have no idea how I ended up with and a lot of duplicates. This is pretty much what's left consisting of stuff I actually listen to. Slowly filling gaps in the collection now.

BB wash and wear.

 

And this is probably a 3-2 buttoned as a hard 3, right?

Heavy cotton? Those looks like to be from the 90's or so. I'm thinking plastic buttons?

 Hah, I saw a pair of these last week.. I was stoked to find a pair of selvage jeans in my size until I looked at them and saw the painting. Horrible...

Mex: could be wrong. Thought that's what Catside said. Never really verified, but they're extr high quality.
