Heads up for people with 18" shoulders!

 

Poorly labeled Cashmere Kiton jacket ending in a few hours (not mine) it's above thrift prices but come on, it's Kiton. This seller has a lot in this size too...

My first, but I think it was a decent pass at $23.

Jetted pockets, no vent.

 

 

BUUUUT

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I also passed up a recent-ish Schott A-2 in excellent condition for $25. That one was probably a mistake.

I've bought stuff off of her before. Terrible at measurements but with 152,000 active listings you get that... so you kind of need to go with your gut. A recent Kiton with 18" shoulders wont be 34" long, she might be measuring from top of the collar?

And I would assume they got 18" sleeves by measuring from the armpit, not the shoulder. The rest of the measurements are anyone's guess.

Unless someone buys them we'll never know but just by eyeballing it you can tell it's not 18" from top of shoulder.

Had a pretty successful morning. So irritated that I'm not a S/M or a 30 waist. The stuff was priced a little higher than regular thrift prices but still a steal. Had to pass on some nice stuff because I was short on bread and didn't know if anyone here would for sure want them. Passed on Gucci slim fit shirts in cool plaid patterns, a couple super nice hand made dress shirts by Mazzarelli and W+H, KMW and NSF selvedge denim in 30-31x32 but all had fades going already. The one that made me really sad was a pair of Grown & Sewn 5 pocket khakis. Such a little-known maker it has no re-sale value but I've been pondering over buying a pair at retail. After seeing a pair in person and the cool details they have I will pull the trigger eventually. A well-dressed fellow also grabbed some stuff that I hadn't seen yet (about 5 shirts and a few ties) and I later recognized him as a local eBay men's clothing seller.

Anyway, here's my finds. Don't worry, I didn't leave any Cucinelli, Isaia or Fray behind. All the stuff is mint. All from one guy - he was smaller. 15-15 1/2 neck w/ 34 sleeves and a 31-32 waist. Everything is available.

Also, sorry about the pictures being rotated every which way. They are all rotated correctly on my computer. Can't figure out why upload on here sideways and one even upside-down. puzzled.gif

Nothing brag worthy. picked up a really heavy, dark grey herringbone BB Brooksease suit. Recent. no signs of wear. 

 

They also had (have) a BB Golden Fleece Jacket Orphan in a 120s Loro Piana in a dark grey, size 42r (my size.).

 

After looking through the pants, I find the BB Loro Piana slacks back in the rack. I've spent an hour trying to find the matching slacks around 3 weeks ago, even going thru all the women's wear. And here they were. when I get the pants to the coat, I note the slacks are size 32, and the coat tag clearly says 42r 36. :brick:

 

What are the odds of two matching orphans of the same maker, same fabric, in the same goodwill? Dunno, but for me today, 100%.

Quick Brag

Warning: eBay content (Click to show)
Found these NWT on my trip to NY. Did a little digging and discovered that they were from the inaugural season of Black Fleece. I consulted Spoo on pricing but even he didn't have a good idea of where to set it so until I made up my mind I set them at what I assumed was a wildly unrealistic $345. Pretty quick it had 6 watchers and just got a BIN offer of $300 and took it.

$118 import charges. Thanks, eBay. 

 

Nice sell on those pants!

Holy crap that Tom Ford tie. Badass haul in general, Nataku.

And nothing. Waiting to hear following a callback for a position I'd actually like so that's nice. But yeah, we're past the encouragement stage. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Anyways, big ups to catside! Tipped me to this gorgeous suit, exactly a pattern/color I was looking for and fits great (just need to take the sleeves and waist in a touch)! Is this Caruso for BB? Catside thought it was but I can't find any real info (only bit I can really find is that Caruso makes the BBBF stuff). This thread, this thread, and this thread reached no real conclusions. Regardless, looks and feels great, yay catside!

Left a couple fun ties I liked (Rooster cotton blackwatch and a no-name stripe I was fond of) because of bad wear in the knot area. Also, I very much remember this being discussed in thread but I don't remember the outcome. What's the deal with this, Royal seal'ed Van Heusen? Although 'twas my size I left it as it was an odd tone of blue and had plastic buttons.

 

Every interview I did were for jobs that hadn't made it to the "posted" stage. They had a need and saw my information before even doing a formal listing. The best part about that is you aren't really competing against anyone yet. Did you try emailing attorneys in the firms you would want to work for even for not listed jobs? The worst that happens is you get ignored.PM me and we can strategize together. I would love to help if I can. I didn't realize you had been trying for an entire year with no results. Your career development office helpful at all?

To the guys with JD's looking for jobs. Check banks/ financial insitutions for compliance jobs. My wife went that route and she makes more money that most of the people she went to law school with.
