    I'm looking for a pair of brown Mezlans...... [​IMG] Don't worry, I've learned my lesson.

    Actually, I'm looking for a quality pair of burgundy wingtips and/or a pair of burgundy cap toes in size 13D. I have no problem with gently worn and I'd like to spend $75 or less.

    Thanks

    Not a single suede belt in the joint.

    That would be great, thanks. Dress belt though i.e. no wider than 1.25" and no funky stitching...

    OK I'll play.

    I need a dark brown suede dress belt (size 32-34) to match the Tramezza Gherardo and the only nice one I found was a $180 Canali, which is too much $. I am ready to pay $50 for a nice one, preferably new and unused. I also prefer silver hardware too.


    APC has a dark brown suede belt with silver buckle on sale for $56. The 90cm size would prob be right (I'm 30W and fit the 85).

    I haven't read all posts in this thread but I wanted to tell you:

    As some of you maybe have notices, I started selling some nice NWT items in the forum.

    I am blessed to live in a city where there are a chain of Italian Outlet stores..
    I allways shop there trying to find good items at a good price.

    Being a 38R, 15.5" shirts, it is not an easy task...

    See, in Europe most guys are 38R and wear 15.5 shirts...

    When I go to the shops I see plenty of Zileri, Corneliani, Isaia items discounted in big sizes bit not too much in my size...

    I started as an experiment to buy some items and put them for sale here, and it has been a good experience, I do a little profit that I can then reinvest buying other items and sell them here...

    The problem is...

    I am not a merchant or a seller... I am just a regular guy who happens to love clothes... and I am not interested in having a stock of items that doesn't sell or that take long to sell...

    Well maybe I just have to blame the warm winter about the overcoats I bougth for the forum... all the other items have been happily sold ... I just lost a little money on shipping charges because it turned out to be more than I specified and adding to that the ties I sent as a gift etc... But at the end it has been a good experience I am happy with that and the guy that bought the items seem to be also.

    Maybe the best thing would be to see if someone needs something specific and then go and try to get it for him

    the other problem is that these shops that sell discounted items doesn't accept returns here, so if I do it in that way I'd have to do it with a pre-payment as if the buyer then changes his mind and doesn't pay I'll get stuck with another Item in my "stock"...

    Now is the sales period here so I can get nice white label Zileri suits for around $300 shipped and Zileri sartoriales/Isaias for around $500


    what do you think ?

    Thanks for that. The buckle style and the width (1.4") make it too casual for my needs though. It would be fine with jeans, cords... but I need a belt for suits/dress pants.

    not to suggest your opinion is wrong, but I'd think that belt could still work for you. You could probably have the buckle replaced, and as to the width, I'd agree that that's too wide for calfskin suit belt, but suede is a different scene, IMO. As soon as you wear suede shoes, I feel like you have taken a step down with regard to formality, and a somewhat wider belt wouldn't strike me as out of place (its not like its 2 inches or anything).

    Again, just my $.02, and if you don't dig the belt, that's that. [​IMG]

    lakewood, you are going to be an extremely good resource for me (when my chequebook permits it, of course). You know I would love either of those Corneliani coats you posted. Who knows, I might still pull the trigger. Winter in Vancouver this year is uncharacteristically chilly. [​IMG]

    Always look forward to your next offering.

    The cornelianis are still available at a reduced price ( $250 plus shipping tqo 40R and one 38R) I have seen no interest on them because of this year's warm winter... but we are still hoping and waiting for the snow... I haven't gone still skiing this year because of the lack of snow... last year I was skiing since november...

    seems to me this thread has pretty quickly fulfilled its destiny of becoming an echo-chamber wishing-well kind of thing, where everyone can write their xmas list, but nobody's sending PMs back. Just out of curiosity, have any transactions come of this thread?

    WTB Incotex (or similar quality) trousers in size 30" US/UK or 46 Euro. Inseam would have to be 32" or longer.

    Used not a problem as long in good condition.

    Especially looking for cotton or linen trousers but will also consider wool.

    Only flat front and straight leg or slightly tapered.

    As I was concerned, it seems to have been killed by people being entirely too specific and insistent on newness. Perhaps one day it will soar.
