Armani Collezioni Pants. Size 48IT/32US. Primarily white with vertical blue pinstripes. Beautiful fabric. Fine construction. Rarely worn. Excellent condition. The fabric is, roughly 70% linen and 30% rayon-viscose, a mixture which keeps heavy wrinkling at a minimum. Very elegant slacks. The fit is outstanding, and they’re great for vacation.

NWT Marlon Gobel Corduroy Pants. Size.34. 100% Cotton. Gobel is an emerging designer who specializes in Americana -- with a little swag. He worked and studied under Bastian and Browne, and is exclusively sold at Bergdorf Goodman. See his website. I have more than a few of outstanding Gobel pieces which always generate lots of compliments. The construction is top notch. Pants made in USA. Bought these a year ago, but they're a little big for me and have never been worn or altered. Tags still attached. Original price: $450. Asking: $150

Prada Slacks. Size 46.Made in Italy. Black. 97% wool, 3% rubber, which allows fabric to breath and mold to the body. The fit against the body is outstanding.

Measurements: waist=30 (addtl matl available to expand waist if needed); inseam=30; leg opening=7.5 Purchased from either Bergdorf’s or Saks more than a few years ago.

Asking: $110.

Marina Yachting Pants. Size 48. Made in Italy. Pants were a gift, which I never wore and they remain in EXCELLENT COND. The fabric is a subtle, muted shade of terra cotta red which, according to the care label, was treated to reflect an aged quality. Perfect for a sportcoat and sweater for casual Friday or weekend wear..The fabric feels like moleskin. I don't know much about the maker, but the quality is quite nice. Special details include a ticket pocket. Measurements: waist=16, inseam=30, leg opening=8. Don't know orig cost. Asking: $25.

Bergdorf Goodman Line Brown Pants. Size 50. Made in Italy. Great pants. 100% cotton is cooling. Photos don't do these pants justice. Hard to capture the depth of brown. Fabric feels like very soft cords or almost velvet like. Measurements: waist=17, inseam-31, leg opening=7.5. Asking: $25

Bottega Veneta Pants. NEW WITHOUT TAGS. Size 46. These are new without tags. Purchased online, but they are a bit too small. The waist is just at 32, but they will look best on a person who is a 30/31" waist. 100% cotton, contrasting stitching, medium khaki color. 2 side pockets with hidden buttons to better secure pocket contents, 2 back (unopened) back welt pockets. The soft, luxurious fabric has a "crinkle-like" effect to them, similar to Bottega's corduroy pants from a couple of seasons ago. The shape of the pants is more fitted on top with a slight boot cut flare on the bottom. The pants are hip yet classic. Measurements: waist=16, inseam 34 (unhemmed), rise=9, leg opening=9.5. Orig retail price $960. Asking: $125 final drop.

Gucci Ivory Spring/Summer/Fall Corduroy Pants and Sportcoat.

Pants: Thin or pin-like corduroy fabric made of 100% cotton. Size 48IT/32US (size tag missing--see measurements below). Excellent condition. Worn less than 3X's.Narrow, stylish and hip pants. Very well made. Beautiful MOP buttons, 4 wide belt loops, 2 button up back pockets. Measurements: waist=16 (some extra matl to avail expand waist if needed), rise 8", inseam 30 (plus 2" inside hem if needed to extend length), leg opening=7. These pants no longer fit; they are best for a 30-31 waist given the cut. bigger than the Bottega Veneta's (see btm of thread for photos), however, they fit me best when I am a 30 or 31, so I recommend them for a person with a 30-31 waist too --or -- a size 32 wearer who likes a tighter fit.

Sportcoat: I purchased a jacket from the same Gucci runway collection and sometimes wore as the separates as a suit. The buttons, hardware, design are a perfect match and the same runway collection; however, the shade of ivory is not a 100% match. It's very close though and most people, without a very close inspection, don't notice the subtle difference. The jacket is 40R, altered to a 38R. Narrow fit, consistent with above Gucci pants. Measurements: Pit to pit= 20, sleeve (shoulder seam to bottom cuff) 26, TOC=29.5.

Orig price roughly $600; $1000+ for jacket. Asking: $225 obo (within reason) Will sell as separates.


Commes des Garcons Trenchcoat. Made in Japan. Tan/Khaki. Reversible style. Rather fashion forward. Missing belt, but it's probably stored somewhere and Ill forward when I find or, if not, just replace it as the color is standard khaki. Measurements: Pics forthcoming.


Zegna Polo Shirt. Size Made in Italy. 50/Med. Short Sleeve. Made in Italy. Primary color green with blue and white woven into fabric like a herringbone. Very good condition. Single chest pocket. Measurements: pit to pit=22, sleeve=7, TOC=28. Asking: $15
