    I have a light beige plaid APC sportcoat (3 button, double vented) that my gym routine has made ill-fitting on me. Here is a pic from when it "barely" fit, but unfortunately now its just a bit too snug (if you can imagine it any tighter on me than that pic!)

    I'm looking for a similar summer sport jacket, more along the lines of the APC one rather than something more conservative, but I'll entertain offers of course!

    OK, gang. I had the come-up of the century yesterday. Three suits, three sportcoats, and half a dozen pairs of odd pants from the same Oxxford bespoke (or possibly MTM) customer. All of these are Oxxford, made for the LA traditional clothing store Carrol & Co., with the exception of the last two pairs of plaid pants, which are made by Carrol & Co. from Loro Piana fabric. All are fully canvassed, most are cashmere, all have surgeon's cuffs, all are fantastically beautiful. Pants are pleated, coats are center-vented. All are the same size. All are from within the last 10 years. All are in fantastic condition, with no flaws I could find other than one pair of pants which has two very, very small spots (pictured, about 1-2mm in size) The chest is a 42, measuring 44" and fitting my 42" chest quite well. I'd say it's a 42 R-S, comically short on my 42L frame. Shoulders are 19", coat is 29" long from the base of the collar along the back center seam. Sleeves are 23" across the top. Pants waist is 36", inseam is 29" plus 1.5" cuffs. I'd love to trade all of these together for some amazing package of stuff in my size, or some amazing thing and some money, or something along those lines. I wear 42L, 36x34, size 12 shoes, 16.5/35 shirt. Suits, sportcoats, and in some cases shoes and trousers are more what I'm looking for than shirts, generally.

[​IMG] Darker brown summer cashmere with blue overcheck sportcoat [​IMG] [​IMG] Slightly brighter red-brown crepe-y cashmere sportcoat [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Navy with white pinstripes and very subtle red pinstripes suit, "west of England worsteds" [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] "Patrician preference" check suit. no material listing, but by hand it is almost certainly cashmere.

    also, found an extremely soft 44 Camel hair light plaid jacket. Please PM if interested, it's not the season so I'm sure it'll be there for a bit.

    Does anyone know some of the more well known names of hong kong tailors, I found a complete suit made by a custom tailor in hong kong, appeared to be in wonderful condition.

    How do I post pics, jeez. All of my files are too large. How should I size them down?
