    Very cool idea. I hope that the recipients also give away the pieces that doesn't fit, instead of flipping it on Ebay.

    I'm looking for a classic Tie, anything really. Blue? Dark Blue? Decent red? brown? etc.
    I have mostly everything else, but my tie "collection" is brutal.

    I'll pay shipping from anywhere to Norway. When I come home from vacation I'll see what I put up for donation, think I have a nice couple of black cap-toes in 10D that are far too tight for me. Johnston and Murphy, looks identical to a pair of AE Park Avenues.

    I am not sure what the rules are for giving stuff away. Meaning does it need to be in pristine condition or not. I promised to put some stuff on this thread so here is the 1st installment.

    44S Sulka suit with short arms and flat front pants - This suit is for perfect for someone who has short arms. There might be excess cloth but i cant be bothered to take it a tailor.

    Chest: 23"
    Shoulder: 19"
    Length: 30.5"
    Shoulder seam to sleeve end: 21" -
    Unvented Jacket


    Few more pics

    Thank you @Cleav for starting this thread. Great way to pass it forward. I have a few suits and sc which will be available when i get around to taking measurements and pics.

    Free pair of Cole Haan plain toe bluchers in brown, size US 7.5D, to anyone who wants them. I'll cover shipping in the US; rest of the world will have to pay P&P. I wore these twice but they don't fit me. I envision these as useful for a guy who has a couple of pairs of dress shoes, but not so many that his rotation is complete or that he wants to risk having his good shoes beaten up on commutes, in the subway, etc.

    Pardon the dust on the shoes. There's no discoloration in reality.
