    I came across a pair of RL chinos at a thrift that had black printing on the inside of the pants in the area of the right back pocket with military specifications. The label was white with black lettering. Any idea as to what they might be. I should have snapped a couple of pics.

    Burgundy (very versatile) or chili.

    I bought these in tan. They look better in person but are pricey at retail. Opinions? I can return them:

    I bought this sport coat from BB a few months ago. It's made out of cotton, which I'm not crazy about, but the fit is just about perfect. I've worn it maybe four or five times, no alterations, and I've just now noticed the worst "puckering" in the back, as though it's grown a spine or something. ("Puckering" seems like the wrong word, but I don't know how else to describe it.) This pic is way overexposed, but it really highlights the problem:

    [​IMG]

    I took a few more pics here: Back, better exposure. Inside construction.

    Any ideas on how this could be fixed? The tag says to dry clean only, and not to iron. I've done neither, but this being cotton, I would consider ironing it if I knew that it would work and not destroy the coat. I also recognize that all of the unevenness tracks the seam, leaving me to wonder if the real problem lies in what may just be a cheap construction, in which case there might not be much I can do.

    For those of you who own Turnbull and Asser shirts with the 3 button cuff - can you please measure and PM me or post the length of the cuff? My bespoke shirts are 2 button (vertical) and 3 inches long. Deciding whether to go 3.25 or 3.5 inches on the 3 button cuff. Thanks.

    ("Puckering" seems like the wrong word, but I don't know how else to describe it.)

    'Puckering' is actually perfectly correct. If a pressing doesn't help then you could take it back to BB and see what they say, it could be a construction defect.

    First post here, although I have been reading along for a while now. My father is looking to get rid of a number of Hickey Freeman and other suits that no longer fit him. I was just wondering if there would be enough interest to post them on here for sale or trade or if I should just put them on Ebay. I am not exactly sure of the size, but I would imagine the suits range from 38S to 42S.

    If you all think that there would be interest, I can get the suits and provide proper measurements (and pictures, of course).

    Thanks.

    Put them on the Buying & Selling Forum. I am sure people will bite.

    Only problem is, I think you have to have 45(?) or so posts to create a thread there. Might need someone to proxy it for you, or maybe there's some other way around it. I dunno.

    I looked into that and the site said that I needed to be a member for 45 days (I think) before I could post on the buying and selling thread. If that is the case, I can wait a while longer and then post when I am able. Thanks for the responses.
