    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:

    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:

    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.
