    Nice 100% cashmere LP sport coat. I would be all over this if it was 1" longer. Listed as 42R but it's MTM and I think it's more like a 42S: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281368331703?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    Funky Oxxford tweed jacket in 41R: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291168458101?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    Nice Oxxford ~42R glen plaid sportcoat: http://www.ebay.com/itm/161345780420?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT#viTabs_0

    ^^seller says that no fabric content is listed but that it "feels like 100% cashmere" which is a little shady but still a really nice looking jacket. Would probably buy if it was for sure 100% cashmere.

    Inexpensive navy PRL linen sportcoat: http://www.ebay.com/itm/AMAZING-RAL...-SPORT-COAT-US40R-MADE-IN-ITALY-/271533024276

    Very low BIN for 44R Samuelsohn tweedy jacket: http://www.ebay.com/itm/WOW-SAMUELS...NCHECK-SC-D-VENT-TIX-POCKET-44R-/271512088956

    This guy in general has some really nice stuff in the $400-$500 range. Seriously thinking about that cashmere RLPL sport coat: http://www.ebay.com/sch/nice*suit/m...zers_Sport_Coats&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

    Curious gusset. Would look like you were flashing your 1980s sport socks.

    I'd be willing to bet you could dye them. How they would actually end up looking is a whole other matter...

    Fred Perry is a mod brand, so I guess they're supposed to go with this sort of thing.

    I'd happily wear em with dark jeans and a polo shirt!

    Decent pair of RLPL by Edward Green (but not marked as such) Single Monks on the 89 Last in size US 9D (8.5UK). They appear barely worn. BIN $410, which if it includes the lasted shoe trees (I think auction is unclear, and I would confirm with seller) is a decent deal. There haven't been many views even though the auction has been going for a while (and the only current watcher is me), so you may be able to email the seller and ask for a lower price.

    But the shoe is marked 8.5D on the inside, so I think the listing is incorrect and it's actually an 8.5D US, 8E UK. IIRC the RLPL EG's are marked with the US size on the inside.

    Not CJ, but RLPL?
