    I saw that, but I doubt it. I think she just uses that as standard sizing? The Borrelli I own is 17/43 and is perfect in the arms (I usually wear 17-35)

    You'll probably have to take them to a tailor. Seems fairly common for these high end shirts that they expect you to do that.

    BBBF brown pebble grain cap toe boots. Seller says boots worn 1 time but no photos of soles. Seller says size 8.5UK/9US. Not sure that is correct. The BBBF label on tongue of boot shows size 8.5; I think that is US sizing. Tall boots, 8 eyelets. Auction has six days to run. No bids, opening bid of $225 with a BIN price of $300. Shipping is $18.

    I just noticed the pattern on a Nieman Marcus shopping bag. Would this be the belly?

    You're out of luck: EG made at one time for Cole-Haan, but those are Cheaney.

    I was also one of those who purchased several. The fastest overseas shipping I've ever experienced, combined shipping, and the shirts were far better than advertised. Spoo is absolutely correct in that the blemishes were inconsequential. I may buy more of the 17 if someone else does not do it before I make up my mind. I just need to see if I have anything left after my Christmas splurge.
