    Anyone else think it seems like Ebay doesn't really have much going on for shirts/sportcoats/suits right now? Seems this way to me, at least in the 16.5/42 shirts and 46/EU58 suits.

    Dunno... picked up a RJ shirt, a HK handrolled pocket square, and an amazing Ballantyne cashmere hand intarsia sweater with Fred Astaire's picture knitted in (would have retailed over $1000) recently...

    I dunno, there is a HEAP of Kiton clothing on ebay right now....thankfully, the only thing I needed was this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....MEWN:IT hoping I can antique them with some black polish (? is that right?), as I can't afford another pair of lobb shoes at the moment, figured these were a decent pair.

    I'll be posting some Oxxford, Brioni, Kiton, Isaia, Zegna Napoli Couture, and HF suits and sports jackets mostly 44-50 in the next week.  All brand new with tags.   There are a few others in 37, 41 and 52, I think.  

    Hopkins student, at or close to your size in US measurement, I have a
    NWT Hickey Freeman DB gray suit size 46
    NWT Kiton cotton suit, dull olive in 47/48
    NWT Isaia 140's sports coat 46L
    NWT Isaia 120's sports coat 46L

    Shirts at or close to your size:
    Baldessarini pale pink herringbone 42
    Baldessarini white herringbone 41
    Oxxford white 43
    These shirts are terrific.

    Over the weekend I'll be taking pics and plan to post on eBay

    There are lots more and it may take me a week longer to get everything on eBay.

    If you're interested, LMK and I'll take pics of those items first.

    yo, demeis. I have a 38R Isaia cashmere sport coat. I think I also might have a 15.5 Isaia shirt, pale pink with deep green stripes. Both are awesome.

    It seems that there hasn't been that much lately. I agree with your post. I guess it makes sense to check once a week to see what is out there. How often do you check ?

    Oi vey...I've had a devil of a time finding anything I'd bid on. Even a stape like a navy blue suit, 2 or three button, is impossible unless I want one in a heavy poly percentage. Anyone who sees a 48L navy suit -- two or three button -- feel free to PM me or leave a message here [​IMG]

    If you're size 38 or smaller, you may want to take a look at this. The jacket looks good and the sleeves are largely unaltered. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW

    Outstanding shoes, Foxx. Funny, they don't look much more "Italian" (because of the rounded captoe) than my Crockett "Downing" medallion captoes. No Lobbs, though (never in 9E-looking for the "Lopez" loafer now for 4 years). Kanvas, from whom I've bought Oxxford, is certainly on the high quality end.

    Despite the "scarcity", "World's Finest" has an outstanding selection of Truzzi shirts both on Ebay and on his site. I'm withstanding the temptation to buy still another "for FARMER" patterned flannel buttondown. Lots of Barbera sportjackets (not my size) with no minimums. Happy hunting.

    Why joke? Sweater is not for FARMER. (expressing inner ernest) It's really cool. Honest. Much better than some awful Lucien Pellat-Finet hemp or skull intarsia. And, like, Astaire, an icon of timeless elegance... a link to those Anderson & Sheppard stories about him dancing in his suits to make sure they always fit perfectly... seemed very apropos from a styleforum perspective. Manton, I'm wounded by your doubt.

    Dress like Astaire: good. Wear picture of Astaire on chest: bad.

    <sniff> you're just jealous. Next time we meet up I'll wear it under a Darren suit.

    Always looking for recent Zegna's in 40R, and doesn't seem to be too much there at the moment... of course, there are always the Cinese counterfeits which eBay still hasn't taken down.

    I'm looking for sports jackets and a navy suit in 40 L and have found nothing I like for nearly 2 months. It seems 40 L is tough to find, but I'm new to ebay so I don't know if this is typical or not. I am kicking myself for passing up 2 great Brioni ties (one for only $45).

    There were a great deal of Brioni ties at the NM Last Call at Woodbury Common when I went this weekend... all around $45-60. Some decent patterns, some not. Their ties aren't really to my taste. My best eBay find to date was a brown 50% linen/50% cashmere chocolate brown sport jacket at $600, which fit like it was made for me. I can't complain [​IMG] -s
