    Hey Anti would you mind posting measurements? If it's not too much trouble that is.

    I have two blue blazers that are 40, on the short side but both are amazing.
    MTM Dunhill by Zegna. One is a 2 button double vent, the other is an amazing cashmere flannel DB with db vents.


    I am interested in the blazers as well, if they are on the short side, they might fit me.

    Anti, you are my idol for thrifting. I hope I have something to trade with you, but I believe it is hard, since your standard is much higher than mine, I suppose. If you don't mind, please pm me your measurements. I do have some Canali blazers, and a Zegna Soft suit, in size 42R-46R, that I don't have time to post here.

    I will measure them up tonight.
    The sleeves are in the neighborhood of 24 inches
    The body (length from collar) is like a 31
    Both can have functional sleeves but this has not been done to them.
    I will measure up the chest and shoulders tonight.
    Also, I can snap a couple of pics if you like.

    amerikajinda, I see you're interested in Tino Cosma ties. I have 2 or three laying around that I never wear, at least one is NWT. If you're interested, I'll post some pics!

    Yes, that would be awesome! And if I remember correctly, I believe you're interested in suits, jackets, coats and shirts with modern cuts, higher gorges, and slimmer lapels, and that you're partial to brands such as Isaia, Kiton, Brioni, Oxxford, Zegna, RLPL, RLBL, Cucinelli, Battistoni, Jil Sander, Raf Simons, Helmut Lang, Yohi Yamamoto, Rag & Bone, Engineered Garments, Oliver Spencer, etc.? Was that you or am I thinking of another poster?

    Moved to B&S! You snooze, you lose! [​IMG] Ok I have a pair of NWT Polo "Thompson" wool pinstripe slacks (unhemmed) in size 32. I didn't get them at a thrift shop, but still wanted to offer them up for trade here on the Official Thrifter's Trading Post. They have metal buttons, a hidden coin pocket above the right front pocket (like Oxxford slacks), are made in Italy, and retailed for $295.

All are NWT The pictures completely ruins a couple ties, so here's what colors they are from left to right: Dion Signature: Pink Cornelliani: seersucker pink/white Tino Cosma: Silver (Traded) Tino Cosma: Purple w/ print (Traded) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    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....
