    Alright, here's some more goodies. If you are interested in anything, let me know and I will take more pics.

    Allen Edmonds Brookwood in 12D. This is the same pair I just got on trade from creampiggy. I thought since sizing on loafers is always a little hit and miss, I may get lucky and squeeze my fat feet in to these, but alas they do not fit.


    Hi doublebucklemonk, I am really sorry to hear that the shoes don't fit you. I received your shoes yesterday and they are amazing! Sanford has been my favorite AE model. I believe after a good polish they will look perfect.

    Thanks for the trade. I saw a Canali orphaned jacket in size 62R today. I think it is still too small for you though. I will keep on eye for you.

    For those who are thinking to trade with doublebusklemonk, he is really a wonderful person to deal with.

    Wow, I'm happy so many people have responded to my post, but I feel I should clear up some sizing errors and give a little more details (and pics!). The Borelli jacket is not a true 42S, but rather a labeled 40R. The jacket fits me in the chest, but is too wide in the shoulders (see pic), which led me to believe it was a 42. The sleeves and hem are clearly too short, perhaps the previous owner had it shortened?... The Allen Edmonds are a 10 and more of a burgandy color, not a 9.5 and chili. Also, there are some slight imperfections in the leather, but should be fixed with a quick polish. Otherwise the shoes are brand new. I would bet they were never worn outside of the store. JACKET IS ON HOLD Well, pics are below. Sorry for any confusion. [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Glad you like em. Don't know if you noticed, but AE is having a sale on recrafting through the end of the month. If you were planning on resoling them, now would be a great time. Thanks again for the great trade.

    I'll be curious to see how the Burberry suit measures out.
    Ok I measured it and took more pics in better light... Also listed it in B&S, but trades always considered! Measurements: Chest - 26" across, so 52" chest. Waist - 24" across, so 48" waist. Shoulder Width - 21.5" Jacket length (from bottom of collar) - 32" Shoulder length - 26" (with .5" to let out conservatively) Pants waist - 21" across (so 42" waist, with up to 3" to let out) Pants length - 29.5" - with 3" to let out (2" if cuffed) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] http://img5.imageshack.us/gal.php?g=dscn1251ogo.jpg Similar suit on on ebay: Note: this suit is pretty recent! Not "Burberrys'" with the knight on the horse logo... and this suit is very soft, not coarse... immaculate inside and out. 2-button, side vented, pleated pants (pleats are coming back!)

    This w/e's haul, have to say one of the best I've had:

    Ermenegildo Zegna Pants 34x29 (2" cuff with about an 1 1/2" hemmed under) 100% wool made in Italy. These look like they are brand new. (Traded)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    David Wood Clothiers Dress Shirt 16.5/34 measured (it's tagged 17.5/35 bit it's small on me)
    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers Non Iron Dress shirt 16/35 (measures true to size)
    [​IMG]

    Also purchased:
    -Navy with dark checks Burberry's Sport Coat from Saks (my guess would be about a 40R) looks to be in almost new condition.
    http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...&postcount=174
    -Dark Grey Hugo Boss (Loro Piana) Sport coat (Tagged 42L). They could be orphaned but I didn't find any pants.

    These will be posted after I take them to the cleaners due to wrinkles. If there is any immediate interest I'll take pictures.

    Also found a Brooks Brothers Navy suit in a 45L and a Brooks Brother button down 17.5/35 that for right now I'm keeping for myself.

    just so you know that is not the famous Italian company we are all familiar with. Borrelli has two Rs.

    Had some interest in the Burberry's Coat. I did find one small spot on the back shown in the last picture. It is not noticable unless you are looking for it. Measurements below:
    Armpit: 21"
    Shoulders: 19"
    Sleeves: 25"
    Length: 31.5"

    They are marked 8.5. They are made for a montreal store, so im assuming its 8.5US size, but they fit more like a 9US

    Ill trade if you have anything clunky and wide, preferably pebbled

    Shoes look great, breakfasteatre. Would have thrown the whole playbook your way had they been a bit smaller...
