    Much appreciated!

    Well if one wasn't enough, the thrifting gods and the late and great Mr. RDS (who ever he may be) bestowed upon me yet another flight coat. Same size. Get at me.

    Some stuff I'm looking to offload. Help me make my first SF trade. :-}

    (1) 52R EU/42 R USA 100% Cashmere Sport Coat. Probably Belvest, but I'm not sure. The "Pure Cashmere" tag seems to be the same one they use, and the font on the lining looks like the same one they use as well. Also, this post suggests that stuff for Giorgio of Beverly Hills was made either by them or Brioni: http://www.styleforum.net/t/32056/giorgio-of-beverly-hills

    I don't have measurements right now, but can get them if anyone is interested. Note, though, that it's around 25.5" sleeves, and there is *no room at all* to have them let out. I already had them extended as far as they could go by my tailor, who even added some similarly colored fabric on the inner part of the sleeve. She's got no more to give.

    Very nice, but it's just too short for me.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    (2) Harris Tweed SC, 40L-ish. Again, don't have measurements now but can get them in a few days. Probably around 18.5" in the shoulders (a little too big for me).
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    (3) Banana Republic Tailored Fit SC, 40R.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    (4) Edsor Kronen Handmade Tie. From Berlin. ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH TO WEAR THIS TIE?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    (5) Levis 505, 32x34. Made in USA selvedge. Rigid. Real leather patch. Cone denim. Very nice, but I have another pair and can't justify letting these sit in my closet. Have only worn them a couple of times and washed them once.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    (6) Lands End Shetland Wool Sweater. Medium. Made in Scotland. Beautiful color, but too small for me.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    (7) Heavy Hart, Schaffner, Marx Wool Overcoat. Black and Grey/Blue-ish herringbone. Measures 19" in the shoulders. Can provide more measurements if anyone wants them. Around size 42 or so.

    [​IMG]


    (8) Also have some Clarks Desert Boots in red oak, 11.5 IIRC. Have only worn about 15 times. Too big for me.

    Looking for: 38-40L SCs with 17.5-18" shoulders and 26" sleeves, sweaters in medium, 32x34 or 33x34 pants, 15.5 or 16 x 35 shirts that are relatively slim-fitting.

    You can edit posts - just click the little pencil icon in the lower left corner.

    As for the Belvest - I can't help you, but if you post a pic of the content tag (in a pocket?) in the "ID the maker" thread, someone there could probably help.

    I have a couple pairs of Hiltl trousers that I found but decided I have enough grey, so I'd like to offer them up here. I'd like to trade them for something I need, like decent shoes.



    The first pair is a mid grey with Angelico super 140's wool, flat front and cuffed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    The next pair is a lighter grey, also flat front and cuffed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Both measure out to 40 1/4" x 31" with a 1 1/2" cuff.

    Sorry in advance for the lengthy post and crappy pictures.
    My wife is on vacation with my daughter and gave me an ultimatum to clear stuff out.
    So all of this has been sitting around in a pile (hence the wrinkles) and I realize that I will never get around to trying to sell stuff on e-bay. So before they get re-donated, thought I'd offer the stuff up here. Nothing mind blowing.

    Pricing: Jackets $10 (except the Belvest, for which I'd prefer to trade); suits $20, shirts $6, ties $5, outerwear as noted, shoes as noted. All plus actual shipping. Happy to entertain offers for multiple items and will provide measurements as requested.


    Jackets:

    Star USA is a diffusion line and, IIRC, the former is decent stuff, but star usa generally isn't that great when it comes to quality. Also, both lines use fairly modern styling if that matters.

    Pair of Adidas Supernova Sequence 5 running shoes, size 11 US. Bought these new. I get shin splints when I run in these shoes. Weird. I picked them up because my prior pair were also Supernovas. Those were great. They did something new with these. Just can't run in these. Thus far, I've only put on 34.91 miles on these (GPS watch). For reference, I wear 9.5D in Allen edmonds.

    This is indeed a Belvest label. Older Belvest, not newer. Sorry. But I'm 100% confident that the Pure Cashmere label is Belvest.

    Edit: Also, I see posts about Flight Coats. I have a Flight Coat as well. And a Aquascutum Trench Coat. If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to post pictures and what not!

    Hey guys! Looking for some Spread collar shirts, size 16-35 (34" wont work sadly). Slim fits are preferred.

    Let me know what you got!

    I have a BB golden fleece, slim fit spread collar in a 16.5/35 that I am looking to trade or sell. PM me for pics, it fits slimmer than a normal slim fit, I had it taken in a bit (exceptional tailor), and have only worn it once (BB still has it on their website).

    MZ: Not sure you really mean "spread collar." the spread of the collar refers to how far the points of the collar are away from each other on a 360 degree scale. So are they 30 degrees from each other at a sharp point like Silvio Dante (Steve Van Zant on the Sopranos), or are they nearly pointing backwards, like something Oscar Wilde might have worn.

    I think what you want is technically a point collar, with a modest spread (90 degrees to 120 degrees, roughly), and an extended collar. Not sure there's a technical term for that, but you basically want the collar to extend long enough to fit under your jacket lapels. The closer to (or under) 90, the longer that collar is going to have to be, because it'll be pointed downward, and have a longer distance to travel to hit your lapels. Conversely, the closer to 120, the shorter it will have to travel.

    My apologies, I am looking for the spread for styling and the length to reach my lapel. If just spread will suffice that's fine but my Canali is both more spread and longer than my BB slim fit non-irons and it is my favorite collar.

    I don't need a fly away (cut away?) collar but I would consider my BB more of a semi spread whereas the Regent Collar from RL or my Canali are closer to a spread.

    Pictures are better than words:
