    they are 42" waist shorts and measure true to this. They are relaxed fit and the stitching is superb. All pockets are riveted.

    Here's some better pics of the two pair of Maxwells from this morning. I'm hoping it was a good kop at $20 total. I've never seen 8 1/2 EX, any ideas on what that would convert to? Or am I reading it wrong?

    I wonder if these are older Henry Maxwell's. Very well could be. The name is hardly seen these days. And I think they might just be E, as they already look pretty wide.

    If anyone finds some shorter quality knit ties.... like 52-54" hit me up.

    Also, always looking for size Medium short sleeve Tommy Bahama shirts (sold or crazy floral patterns) on the super dirt cheap, like under $7 shipped. I personally don't pay more then $5 for them myself or just pass. I guess most of you pass them without thinking twice but these would be gifts. I've found about 10 in the last year or but more is better [​IMG] Thanks!!

    Assuming you're looking for yourself, I am about the same height as you and with my knit tie (actually with all my ties) I just tie it so the wide end is the length I want and stick the extra bit of the blade end down the front of my pants.

    Mixed company?! Where?! Lol. Commence the epic perv talk! I shall gladly join in! [​IMG] While you're convincing your friend, I will learn how to correctly walk in high heels!


    Quote: You figured out my plan pretty quick, huh? Haha! [​IMG]

    In all seriousness though, I think a pair of slim dark/black jeans or leggings would bring the whole outfit up a lot.

    I did, you dirty little man! Lol. Seeing as there has been alot of people saying leggings would work, I'll try to put together a suitable outfit and post it too see what ya'll perv's have to say! Lol. I kid! ... maybe.... [​IMG]

    That is 70's Bauer and I even think that may have been one of the models they reissued like 2 years ago.
    So nice to find an original!

    Laughed audibly.
    5. Pairs. Of. Shoes. Cannot comprehend. Is it wrong that I have 10x that? :hide: Re: Loubs, etc., what size shoe? I gotchaback.
    Protip - search "Zegna Couture" in titles AND descriptions, in only the tie category.

    Now on to the finds
    TWO Loro Piana Spread Collar White Shirts. 16.5, pretty minty, slight yellowing on collar and pits. Couple pinholes from tags. One of them was dry cleaned and a little startchy, the other is perfect. Anyways, darted back. Tag on them suggests they were bespoke or MTM and made last January

    Don't judge me, Spoo! 5 pairs.... so what? I'm comfortable with that number, lol. My hubs read your comment and said "I want 10x times!" Lol! I wear a size 8, by the way.

    As far as the "Protip" you offered, not every Zegna Couture is listed as such. I have found plenty of Couture's listed as regular Zegna's. [​IMG] And to prove my point.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ermenegildo...787905993?pt=US_Mens_Ties&hash=item5654ae71c9

    *takes a bow* thank you... thank you....

    I was watching that one already, but this brings up a better question. How do you guys feel about buying from international buyers? Especially south asaia or Italy. I have heard "friend of friends of friends" being screwed with fake items and non shipment, but there are some pretty decent deals from these countries to be had.
