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 have a few things I was going to put up on Ebay but thought I'd offer them here for some good prices first. Shipping will be $5 regardless of how many items you buy.

    NWT 2 Brioni shirts -- sz. 16 (sleeve 35" I'm guessing).
    First shirt is a twill with blue hairline stripes and thicker white stripes framed in dark blue. Fantastic dress shirt. All the bells and whistles of typical Brioni dress shirt -- nice medium spread collar, thick MOPs, great fabric. Second shirt -- I don't know what to call the weave -- it looks like broadcloth but has the softness of a twill. It is a white base with peach and pink 1/4" squares. Medium spread collar as well. Would look great under a blazer, on its own, or perhaps with a suit if you want to venture out a bit. Both shirts are Brioni gold label and retailed for $400 I believe. Asking $120 per shirt or $230 for both.

    NWT Helmut Lang jeans, rust color. sz. 30

    These were from Louis Boston, probably from last year. Retailed for $325. Haven't measured at all, but seem like a slim fit. I have no idea what the market is for these things, but they seemed like a pretty unique piece. I'm asking $55.

    NWOT Paper Denim Fusion jeans, sz. 31

    LA Guy alerted me to these jeans during the Scoop NYC sale. I really like them a lot. I think the cut is the same as my 2-year LTD, but the denim is more dry I think. I took the tags off and threw them in a no detergent cold water wash and drip dried them (which I do with all new clothes). I've never worn them. I only get to wear jeans once or twice a week and have 3 pair in my closet, so I'd like these to go to someone who'd get more use out of them. I'm asking $75.

    Let me know if you are interested. I can get pics and measurements in the next day or two.

    Everything is NWTs except the PDC jeans, which are unworn and NWOTs.

    I also have a Robert Talbott Trim check spread collar shirt in size 14.5/33. White base with toffee and blue checks. Nice casual shirt, and a slim fit like the name implies. Pics coming soon.

    NWTs Brioni shirts -- Â Asking $120 each, or $230 for both. Â $5 shipping. Â Retail was $395 on each. MEASUREMENTS: They both are sz 16 with single button barrel cuffs. They both measure 47" in the chest, and have about 2.5" of taper through the waist. Â Both measure 19.5" across the shoulders and have a plain back (no pleats). Â Both measure to about a 35.5" sleeve length. Â The relatively little taper indicates a less trim fit, obviously, but the chest and shoulder measurements, as well as the plain back, tends to counteract the relatively little taper. Â Describing the shirts as a "medium" fit would be appropriate in my opinion. Â PICTURES (for those with dial up, pics go from full shots to close in shots in that order) Blue stripe pic 1 Blue hairline pic 2 Blue hairline pic 3 You can see that the blue hairline is a twill fabric. Â It is nice and smooth and would make a great dress shirt IMO. Â A very fine twill. Brioni check pic 1 Brioni check 2 Brioni check pic 3 I like the check fabric a lot as well. Â The colors are sort of a golden peach, baby blue, and burgundy on a white base. Â Great for spring and summer. Â Very soft, and a bit more body than an ordinary broadcloth. Â Has the feel of a fine twill actually. Â I've seen this fabric referred to in Italian as Giro Inglese. Â Alex, what does that mean? NWT Robert Talbott Trim shirt -- asking $50 and $5 to ship. Â Retail was $195. MEASUREMENTS: It is a 14.5/33 with a single button barrel cuff. Chest measures 42" and there is about 4" of taper through the body. Â Shoulders measure 18.25" and the yoke is done in a chevron pattern, which is pretty cool. Â Shallow side pleats in the back. Â Buttons are composite shell (I think they are a plastic and MOP composite because they have the MOP rainbow effect, but seem more similar to composite than pure MOP). PICTURES: Talbott 1 Talbott 2 Talbott 3 This is the same type of fabric as the Brioni check shirt. Â A very nice feel to it.
