    Thanks Claghorn. Let me know by PM once Mrs. Claghorn has approved your participation!

    Saw your question in the other thread: shipping will be done directly by Patrizio Cappelli.

    The only topic that wasn't really covered yet (or very briefly only) was 'noodles'. :)

    BTW, high commendations again on your matrimonial maturity regards reading the female or partner psyche and "managing" your relationship.
    I share the same sentiment with Mrs Sense and will need to get back to that conduct of jointly approved investments shortly. I've been splurging way too much lately and do feel guilty about it.

    Oh, and:
    Beautiful ties - my compliments.

    Interested in the suits if they're pretty slim. Do you have measurements?

    I was gonna suggest better pics.

    Shoes in trees. Full shot of soles. Etc etc etc.

    And I'm guessing you aren't expecting to unload those derbies at 400 a pop....but if it is a strategy to get more later (maybe around 250...maybe) by anchoring it to a higher price, not a bad idea.

    Yes, I agree.
    I will take nice pix as soon as I get home and will repost them.
    My apologies.

    Alrighty, I would like:

    Jacket:

    Shoulder seam to shoulder seam:
    Chest, Armpit to armpit:
    Sleeve Length Shoulder seam to cuff:
    Jacket length Bottom of collar to bottom of jacket:

    Just so you know these are sort of the 4 standard measurements when trying to sell jackets. It is also typical to list how much material there is to let out in the sleeves and if the jacket has working cuffs.

    For pants:

    Waist:
    Inseam:

    Again list how much material there is to let out underneath the hem. Also list if there is a cuff or not.

    Finally, good luck. I've had my NWOT SS suits up for about two weeks and selling them at a loss with no bites.

    LOL, you probably eat more kimchi than I do!
    All them stuff were purchased when I knew no better.
    Now that I know better and know what works for me, I need to unload, take the loss, and press reset.
    Where were you Clags, when I was buying these?! Why didn't you stop me?!

    Rudals, if you and your wife get a pet, you better name it "Noodles"
