    I'd be interested in:

    Jacket/Suit: size 36-38 Short in light to mid weight fabric
    Wool pants: size 28-30
    Shoes: size 7.5-8

    If anyone comes across such items, let me know your size and I'll see what I can do to return the favor.

    I'm a 42L and a 36-38/34 pant. Size 12 shoe.

    I'm not afraid of the unusual, and I like 50s and 60s vintage.

    2 pair Allen Edmonds "Sanford" model in 9e. TRADED to creampiggy for AE Brookwoods cream is a great guy to trade with, wish we had more stuff in each others sizes The black calf pair are in good condition. They have a small nick in the tip of the left toe (visible in pics). It is quite hard to see from more two feet away. If these fit my feet, I would be quite happy with them. The burgandy cobbler pair are in rougher shape. The color is flaking off in a few small spots and there are a few scuffs. I haven't tried to polish them to see if that would remove the scuffs or not. The most damage is around the brogueing on the tongue where the color is flaking off in a few spots the size of a pencil eraser. However, this portion of the tongue is completely covered by the rest of the shoe and isn't normally visible. I think with a decent polish, they would be look passable. I've got some jackets in sizes from 38-48 which I will post a little later. I'm looking for: Gray flannel trousers 46w Shoes- size 12 preferably E or EEE but am willing to trade for D's (hey this is all for fun anyways) EDIT deleted most of the pics [​IMG]

    Made in England brown cap toes. By an unknown maker, these are marked size 8.5, but I believe that is UK sizing. Sockliner is missing as I believe these were worn with a prosthetic. [​IMG] [​IMG] I can provide more pictures of any of these items.
    I don't have anything to trade in your size, but how much $$ would you want to get for the unidentified cap toes? They look pretty clean....

    Two pairs of AE cap toes in 11.5B:

    Sanfords (more pics on ebay):

    Park Avenues (I know those look like scuffs on the toe in pic 3, but they're actually just reflections from the sunlight - the toes on these things are extremely clean and polished up really nicely):

    What I'd really like to do is trade - for something in 9.5D! I'm looking for cap toe shoes, whether simple or ornate. I have a slight preference for closed lacing. I also like lace-up dress boots a lot, so if you have some cap-toe boots in my size, I'd love to trade you for those as well.

    But generally, I'd be interested in taking a look at whatever you have to offer for trade, as long as it's a 9.5 or 10 (US) in a medium width, and it's a cap toe shoe.

    I'd be particularly excited if anyone had AE Strand, Soho, or Evanston to offer - or another pair of Sanfords!)

    If you just wanna buy 'em, my roommate has put them on Ebay for me. The Sanfords are here:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Allen-Edmonds-Co...3A1|240%3A1318

    The Park Avenues will be going up on Monday, I can post a link to that auction then.

    I have a pretty cool pair of C&J for Polo golf shoes in 12D that I've had up in B&S and now on ebay, but if they don't sell I would definitely be up for a trade. I would keep them myself even though I don't play golf, but they are a touch too small.

    Looking primarily for boots in 12-13 depending on the last.

    Here's a pic:

    More here: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=102701

    Haven't done much thrifting recently, but generally I wear:

    40L-42L
    34-36x36 pants
    12-13 shoes

    Picked this Baekgaard messenger bag up today to trade. I found an identical one at the same thrift in the fall, so I have no need for another. I posted it in the bragging thread and it did get some love, so I grabbed it. One size fits all! :p Removable inner-compartment. It's from their "Oil Cloth" collection. Traded to Whacked http://www.baekgaardltd.com/Portal.a...N=120015C733DC

    I saw a very nice Zegna sport coat at the thrift last night, but I didn't grab it as I wasn't familiar with everyone's 'wants' yet. It's a ventless, 3/2 button, 50/50 cashmere/silk blend fabric in a really nice soft golden yellow colour with faint brown and grey windowpane as I recall. It was Zegna for Neiman Marcus, and it was recent (last couple years or newer - high button stance/gorge) and appeared to be hardly worn at all - size 44R. I can see if it's still there and grab it if anyone's interested.

    ^^ Ventless or not, I've been looking for a cashmere blend blazer for awhile. Care to snag that baby for me? [​IMG]

    Hey Nataku,
    I grabbed it on my way home from work. Just got home, but I'll post pictures here in a little bit. It's a great jacket - very nice fabric. Let me know what you think when I post the photos.

    Also, for everyone else's benefit, my measurements are:

    Jacket: 38/40 R/S
    Waist: 34
    Inseam: 27/28
    Shirt: 15.5-16-32/33
    Shoes: 9/9.5D
    Casual: M

    ***Please note that I generally have to have everything tailored as my extremities are invariably too short (at least the ones that don't count [​IMG]). So don't let my exact measurements prevent you from offering trades, as I'm willing to have items tailored - within reason of course.
