I'm in. Just got back from another round, about to post pics!

Not my listing and don't know seller, but if someone wants nice opera pumps in a 9.5D http://www.ebay.com/itm/300928273100 - ending 8m est
Yes. Definitely size down 2 sizes. I was a 29 in Levis 511s. 27 in APC Petite Standards. They were of course a little tight brand new (but not too tight to button or wear publicly), then stretched with wear for a perfect fit.
Close. Half waist on these measures 14.5 or 15, depending on how tight you pull it.
Funny you say that because my best fitting are also from J. Brand. My 2nd best are AG straight leg. I don't do bootcut or skinny hipster jeans because I am built anatomically correct.
I would have only picked the two shirts. Maybe the RL jacket if had side vents. The rest are a waste of time... unless you have a big closet .

Please use next time
It's obviously NOT the RLPL as in THE RLPL, but it is odd, nice Sea Island cotton, and the label is purple, since there are so many experts here who know a hell of a lot more about it than me, I thought I'd ask. Thanks for posting that clear and concise explanation of what it is.
AE shoes and Zanella with Loro Piana fabric are a waste of time, I'll be sure to leave them next time, just because you said so. Point taken about the spoiler, was too lazy, should've gone back and edited it when I saw my post took up a whole page. Thanks for your opinion,Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just spent 30 minutes reading the various SC v Suit threads here on SF, pinstripes is the universal orphan. Oh well. It is a 2 button sleeve, navy and multi-stripe, so thought I was safe.
Thanks, I'll have to figure out what needle and thread it'll take to work that denim, might not be worth the hassle, sell them to someone wanting the real 70's look.
Fishy went thrifting!

Pants! All pleated, sadly.
Black one on the end is Incotex for Zegna 93/7 Wool cashmere 34W. Some shine but baller.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Zanella summerweight wool, green micro houndstooth! Lighter green than pic.
Zanella 38, very soft wool. The windowpane is really an orangeish yellow, bad pic.
Brooks Brothers Makers tie, awesome jaguar print!Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Also got a Briggs and Riley 2-suiter, having trouble getting good pics. All available.
Yep Botany 500 is top of the line around here.
Any "workwear" that you'd find in a thrift is going to be in real rough condition. The people who are going to hang on to that kind of stuff are going to wear it until it falls apart.
You can snag an ok dress shirt on occasion, but not much else - if you are looking for flipping material.
You can find occasional workable stuff for keeping but it's unlikely to be label friendly. On the other hand, you'll probably find all the gems in des moines before I get a chance to get here....
Brioni, appears to be super vintage. I know people on here are great with Brioni and I was wondering whether anyone could shed some light on it. It's in great condition minus two super small stains which I'm sure I can get out.
All wool. Made in Italy.
It's a 42 and a little to big on me but I couldn't let it go, they were practically giving it away.
So if anyone digs it or wants to she'd some light on it it would be much appreciated.
