1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I've got some great preowned stuff here except for the Borrelli shirt which is new.
    First up is some beautiful Crocodile loafers from Davanzati. I'm not familiar with this brand but they look more or less new. One of the shoes has a little trim damamge but it's tiny. The leather itself is perfect with no creasing at all. Size 8.5 $150

    Next up a Paul Stuart overcoat. It's a nice olive color in a classic raglan style. It's beautiful and heavy. the collar lost some stitches on the inside that's not visable and about a $20 fix but otherwise it's perfect with no signs of wear. Made in Canada and tagged 38R $90
    length 47
    sleeve (armpit to cuff) 20
    chest 48

    Next up is a new MTM Borrelli dress shirt. It has a monogram on the chest but no one can see it with a jacket on or you can just tell them you have Extra Sensory Perception and wanted everybody to know[​IMG] . $40
    length 32
    sleeve 23
    chest 46
    neck 18

    Next up is a lovely pair of Johson and Murphy made in Italy suede loafers I bought for myself years ago and I remember wearing them exactly twice. I don't know if their quality has gone down since I bought them but these are actually really nice and well made. Includes a matching belt in size 38 shoes size 10.5 $65

    Next up is a nice Vyvella wool/cotton blend shirt made in England. size 15.5 Nice and scratchy. $25
    length 29
    sleeve 23.5
    chest 44
    neck 16

    Finally is a Brioni tweed jacket. Single vent and two buttons on the cuff. Medium padding in the shoulders and a nipped waist as is the Brioni style. The only flaw with this jacket is the lack of Brioni tags and the fact that one sleeve button is a different shade of brown. You can read more about it here. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=60609 $60

    That "ESP" monogram is funny. I may have Borrelli make me one in my size for some good satorial humor.

    Great items!

    The crocodile loafer owner put some serious taps on those.

    Just curious....

    I must have missed something, but in both this thread and in the other discussion of the Brioni jacket, I didn't see any mention of the size of the jacket. Did something get deleted....or did I just miss it????

    When I was an official with the State DMV, a friend requested through me, and got the vanity plate STD...his intials, despite the snickers. (I had to over ride the "Redbook" ban block) No telling if his dating average improved.

    And FWIW Orvis, back in the 70s offered anti-monogram monogrammed shirts. I got my lawyer one with his phone number and mine with my license plate (H8). Always good for a laugh.

    The shoes are not crocodile, they are alligator.

    Really interested in the J&M Loafers, but I'm concerned 10.5 might be too big for me. Any idea on the model name?

    Wow, is this the first death pooler to actually die in the history of the death pool?

    I realize that it's exceedingly late, but would you happen to have the J&M loafers still available?
