    The new emails alerting consignors of their items going live is a nice touch :slayer:

    Those chukkas are classic unlined dark brown suede Aldens on the Leydon last with single waterloc soles. Lots of life left in the soles. They've been Nano-sprayed and well cared for. As a matter of personal preference, I've decided that I'd like a pair of lined brown suede chukkas with thicker soles. Otherwise, they would still be mine. They're awesome. If you like awesome things, like classic American-made brown suede chukkas, these are for you. You don't like awesome things? You want these chukkas anyway. They're that awesome.

    The black longwings are shell. Barrie last of course. Did I say the chukkas were classic American footwear? I spoke the truth, but the longwings are classic-Americaner. I'm only selling them because I wasn't wearing them enough (also lots of life in the soles), and I don't have enough room to just maintain a collection of shoes I'm not wearing (at least not when I'm still getting new shoes). So, with great sadness, I'm letting them go so that a true aficionado of gun boats can give them the love that they deserve. They've been brushed after every wear and otherwise left alone. They're in spectacular shape. Gun boats, dudes. Black shell. Your feet will feel like they can create an empire.

    I immediately thought - wow, that Corneliani ID sweater jacket is in my size. Then, I realized I had consigned it. NWT. Never warn, other than to try on. Wish I could have kept it, but realized I had way too many navy jackets/sweaters in various styles and this one was too redundant.

    All of these spoilered items are my consignments. Ask Spoo for measurements, but I'm happy to answer any other questions by PM. I've also included two "fit" pics I managed to find of the Isaia sport-coat.

    ^I will say on this one that the pants and vest pics are much more representative of color. It's not nearly as flashy as it looks in this pic.

    ^This sweater is awesome. As a linen and cotton blend, it can be worn for most of the year--very early fall through well into the spring.

    So much awesomeness coming up but my wife just placed a big European order which leaves me with peanuts to spend. She did mention I get a tie out of the whole deal....

    That Orvis jacket is pretty nice. I think that's my favorite item out of this entire batch of listings.

    CTP, if I didn't already have a Borrelli in pink, an Orvis sniper sweater and a wife who is on our finances like an Osprey on a fish right now, I'd have been all over those.

    Let's say you're a guy who's been on StyleForum for a while but you still don't have a navy hopsack sport coat, even though you've read approximately 1,356,987 times that you're supposed to. You keep thinking that maybe you should try it but it's boring or not your style. Still, you're curious.

    Or let's say you're a guy who has one but wants another in a different weight or shade of navy or with more casual buttons. You haven't seen the right one yet, but you're looking.

    If you're either of those guys--or a fan of Mike at Epaulet's overall steez or his commitment to American manufacturing or you just like nice sport coats--then that one up there is for you. Super nice hopsack, half-canvassed, dual vents, 3-roll-2, nice casual--but not too casual--buttons. It's a smallish 40 (ask Spoo for measurements) and I'm probably more like a 41 in Epaulet's cut. So my loss is your gain.
    Manton says that you're not well dressed if you don't have at least one non-navy tweed sport coat. Do you have such a coat? Do you consider yourself well dressed? Is that pattern not amazeballs? That thing is too fucking rad, seriously. But again, it's cut a bit on the smallish side and I probably need one size bigger. This was from an Ends for Friends offering, so it's rare and won't be offered again. Half-canvassed, 3-roll-2, epic pattern. Go get that thing. It's on point.

    Dammit Six that second jacket is nuts. I would be all over it if it was a 38 Short. I loved Mikes Friends for Ends.

    Hermes and Versace are women's, the middle one very well may be, but Im offering it as mens and I would wear that all day. Like so : [​IMG]

    Too bad it's too big. It would be right up your alley.
