I have a few items that are ending on Sunday. Nothing as flashy as much of what gets highlighted on here, but that just means you'll be able to snag something for a really good deal.
Material 100% Linen. Pit to pit 23. Total Length 28. Shoulder seams across 21. Sleeves from shoulder seam 24. Condition Pre Owned.www.ebay.com
For all my fellow iGents, it's probably pretty funny that Carroll & Co thought it a better idea to use their own name on the label rather than telling everyone they could that their linen sweaters were made by Inis Meain. For the retired agents and producers who shopped at Carroll & Co before they closed, I guess it made sense. Anyway, if you've ever bought a linen sweater from NMWA, this cut definitely runs bigger. The standard crewneck in a L from NMWA fit me perfectly and this was quite similar - maybe just a tad shorter/boxier.
This is the most disappointed I've ever been in having to let something go. I've probably bought 20 shirts through Epaulet's Individualized Shirts program and this is one of the two nicest ones. Sadly, it came in about an inch thinner than the other ones I ordered alongside it. I wore it a few times, even used it as a motivation to drop a few pounds, but it was always just a hair too tight on me. The color is stunning, the seersucker fabric is elegant and I added real MOP buttons, a French front and lost the chest pocket for a more Italian look. If you're ever able to leave the house again and you rock this shirt, people will mutter to themselves 'hot damn, did he just step in a big pile of sprezz?' when you walk by.
Maker Epaulet. Across Waist 17.5. Material Cotton. Width of hem opening 8.5. Material underneath hem 1.5. Condition Pre Owned.www.ebay.com
I continually do this thing where I sorta forget that I don't live in NYC anymore and there's not much of a need for autumn/winter specific clothing in Los Angeles. Or maybe it's just because I prefer those clothes to spring and summer offerings. Either way, these are great pants. The fabric is really soft and drapes nicely, but they are a bit on the warm side for SoCal. I have a similar shade of pants done up in the same Rudy make-up with side-tabs in a wool/cotton/silk fabric and I realized those were the only ones I was ever reaching for.
Ditto about buying fall/winter stuff that I never really get to wear. For basic grey slacks, you're not gonna find anything better than these. Carroll's now only does custom clothes and their pants are made by Rota. I'm not sure if these were made by Rota the way I'm positive about the Inis sweater above, but if they're not, it's another maker of comparable quality.
Sadly, just too wide for my feet. Loved everything about these shoes other than the fit. They're the best luxe take on a dad sneaker I've handled. Also made me chuckle that my feet qualify for the Big Guys tag.

Another item from Carroll & Co. Was originally $400. I got it for $200 at an end of season clearance sale. Great hat for trips - I packed it in a duffle bag without much in the way of specific care a few times and it still came out looking great. To be clear - it doesn't rebound perfectly to the point that it looks new, but it shows some subtle rumples like a worn-in OCBD, which I always felt complimented the look.
Cant say it enough, love. these. posts.This vest is amazing! Unfortunately, I bouldered my way out of it, because it's too tight in the arm holes/shoulders. If you're a true 38/48 you should snatch it:
Maker Loro Piana. Shoulder seams across 17. Sleeves from shoulder seam NA. Length from bottom of collar 26. Pit to pit 21. Condition Pre Owned.www.ebay.com
And here's another casualty from my too-fast love affair with Loro Piana:
Maker Loro Piana. Pit to pit 23. Shoulder seams across 23. Sleeves from underarm seam 16. Length from bottom of collar 44. Condition Pre Owned.www.ebay.com
Too big for me, I misread the measurements, but it will be an amazing bargain for whoever ends up with it, because a new one of these is like $5,000.
Both are Storm System.
