    I updated the spreadsheet and took averages of all participants' measurements so far...

    Our average jacket size is 43
    Our average shirt size is 17" x 34.5"
    Our average pants size is 36" x 30.75"
    Our average shoe size is 10 3/4


    How is my average neck size a 25?[​IMG]

    oops - good catch! I accidentally put your sleeve measurement as your second neck measurement! Not even sumo wrestlers have a 34 inch neck!

    It's fixed, and the average neck measurement plummets from 17" to 16.5"...

    I have some ties for trade! Will consider any and all trades -- and combinations with other stuff I have available for trade... doesn't have to be an "even" trade, either -- e.g., if you have a tie (or a shirt or whatever) that you think is worth two or three of these ties, just let me know!

    36/37s
    15.5 neck, but i need shirts with like 17/17.5 shoulders, 20" pit to put at the most
    31" waist, 30" inseam

    Heads up for anyone in nyc. The housing works thrift store on 77th and 1st had a gieves & hawkes odd db jacket, black pinstripe for $6 (half off 12 today). Felt like a ~38, with 23 1/2 inch sleeves? I'm 6'2', so the sleeves were far too short for me. Nice roped shoulders.

    Also - some sort of grey patterned Kilgour suit. Fairly large - maybe a 44 US? Was pricey though, 50 with the half off deal.

    Hit one of my local shops, not much there. I did find a $6.00 Paul Smith tie that will probably end up on the thrift exchange as soon as I get pics.

    Here are the Pics:

    I saw a Field Custom Tailor blue sportcoat with cool lining and working buttonholes, and a nice Raja's Fashions (Thailand) sportcoat... but I left both of them in the store because I'm very picky. But I did snap some pics with my cell phone... Field: Holland & Sherry brass buttons (interesting - only two buttonholes on both sleeves - both working) [​IMG] [​IMG] Raja: [​IMG] [​IMG] I did leave the store with some books and a Carrott & Gibbs bowtie which I've listed on B&S...

    I saw your post for the bow tie in B&S. I was silently praying it would be green as I'm in urgent need of a green self-tie bow for a St. Patrick's Day "Green Tie" event. Should anyone come across one in the next few days, I have lots of quality ties to trade.

    Hey all,

    I have some suits and jackets I'd love to turn into something I could wear.

    What I have to trade:
    A Canali suit, size 42R
    Paul Stuart 42S Tweed jacket
    Giorgio Armani (made by Vestimenta) 38r blazer (although it looks like it might have been a suit jacket at one point)

    I'll take pictures later today, as well as measurements for those interested

    I wear (slim) 38s jackets, 30-32 waist, and a shoe size centered around 10.5. I'm particularly interested in Italian items, as I've had the best fit with them.

    Send me some offers!

    I'll put these up for a week, if no hits I gotta toss em on the 'bay to get some cash. I'd like to trade for a suit on par with what I have, but in a 42R (ie: another Oxxford, Isaia, Brioni, Kiton....). 1) Oxxford gray chalkstripe suit. 44R. 2 btn front, single rear vent, partially lined. Super 110's. Pants 38R. [​IMG] [​IMG] 2) Recent Samuelsohn blue/brown stripe. 44R/38R pants. 2 btn front, single rear vent, fully lined. Super 110's. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here's the info:

    The Canali is a dark blue/black (very hard for me to tell) lightly pinstriped with two buttons, unvented. The fabric feels fantastic. Nicer than any jacket I have for sure
    Shoulders: 20''
    Chest: 22.5''
    From top to bottom (including collar): 32.5-33''

    Pants are single pleated
    Waist: 18.5'', about 3.5'' to let out (that should be closer to 2 per side)
    Length: 42'', uncuffed with 3'' to let out


    Armani is black/dark grey with stronger pinstriping, two buttons, unvented.

    Shoulders: 18''
    Chest: 20''
    From top to bottom (including collar): 32''

    I took your advice! We'll see how it goes...
