$50? I'll take that as a comment, not a question.
Shoulder Width - 18.5"
Armpit - 21"
Thats expecting quite some depreciation in the first year! Perhaps charge higher shipping to cover the margin....
Good idea - he could take $50 for the jacket and $150 for the shipping and handling cost!
id rather give it to vinnies than sell it for $50 on principle
Who knows what Salvo's would off load it for? BM l think waiting for the FXH Garage Meet would be the best option
RE glasses, I don't wear them that often since I generally wear contacts for sport, but I have the Oliver People's "Brox" in the tortoise-shell variant.
They garner me more compliments than any single item of clothing I own, at least once per wear. I highly recommend them to anyone who has a larger face. I like them since they toe the line between the hipster round glasses look and a more professional square frame...
What's the FXH Garage Meet?

Took some thread research and here it is...
I forgot about that, but I remember thinking that it was a really good idea at the time.
I actually have a stack of nice clothes that no longer fit and have actually been thinking of running a "sick of the sight of them" sale. However eBay is too much hassle and BS is full of idiots who only want to buy things if you take a loss on the deal. Car boot sale would be a good move.
Alternatively maybe we could share a stall at the Camberwell market some time.
I'll pay $65 including shipping.
What do you guys reckon about jackets in herringbone, like this http://www.mjbale.com/on-sale/reedy-herringbone-navy-jacket
I'm worried they can look like abandoned suit coats, thoughts?
Wow, didn't realise you were actually being serious.
Depends on what you wear it with, I suppose. FWIW, the cut of MJ Bale is fairly relaxed, soft shoulders, open quarters so paired with some odd trousers, it can look good. Also, this Herringbone appears wider, which looks a little more casual. Others may disagree, but I wouldn't worry about it looking like an abandoned suit jacket.
Posting from my phone, since my phone line (and internet) are royally screwed. What about things like tweed herringbone (surely appropriate)? Just my novice opinion, herringbone itself is normally okay. That jacket in particular is quite formal and suit like, compared to the others that have been linked to recently. I'm guessing it does come close to what you are saying, but is not in danger of crossing the line. Isn't it still perfectly good looking paired with any reasonably formal odd trou, etc? I can easily picture a Journeyman WIWT post with it.
