1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    For those who wear size 16-17 in dress shirts, I have several for sale from the best Italian shirtmakers. All are pre-owned except the last Borrelli, which is NWOT.

    The size is listed for each shirt, but please review the measurements as they vary by shirt. Note that the collar measurement is taken from the middle of the button to just past the end of the button hole, not the middle of the button hole. Price includes CONUS shipping. PM for international shipping if interested. Without further ado...

    1) Light Blue FC Brioni with Herringbone Pattern 16.5/42. Has nice thick MoP buttons. Cotton feels a little thicker and heavier. SOLD. Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 24"
    Sleeve - 25.75"
    Collar - 16"
    Shoulder - 20"
    TOC Length - 35.5"

    2) Light Yellow ISAIA 16.5/42. Has nice thick MoP buttons. Cotton feels light weight and thin. SOLD. Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 24"
    Sleeve - 26"
    Collar - 16.5"
    Shoulder - 19.5"
    TOC Length - 33"

    3) Medium Blue with White Stripes FC Truzzi 16.5/42. SOLD. Has nice thick MoP buttons and a split yoke and darts in the back. Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 23.5"
    Sleeve - 26-26.5" (Truzzi FC shirts have 2 button holes to adjust the sleeve length by .5")
    Collar - 16"
    Shoulder - 19.5"
    TOC Length - 33.5"

    4) Light Blue FC Truzzi 16.5/42. SOLD. Has nice thick MoP buttons and a split yoke. Cotton feels thicker and heavier. Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 24.5"
    Sleeve - 26-26.5"
    Collar - 16.25"
    Shoulder - 21"
    TOC Length - 36"

    5) Light Blue FC Borrelli (very similar pattern to #4 Truzzi - end-on-end, I believe). Asking $35 OBO. Includes thick MoP buttons and has faint lettering on the inside of the collar. Cotton feels thicker and heavier. Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 24"
    Sleeve - 25"
    Collar - 16.25"
    Shoulder - 21.5"
    TOC Length - 35"

    6) Light Blue with White Stripes FC Andrea Finamore 17/43 (fits a 16.5/42 better based on measurements, though). SOLD. Includes thick MoP buttons and darts in the back. Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 24.5"
    Sleeve - 23.5"
    Collar - 16.25
    Shoulder - 20"
    TOC Length - 33"

    Has some light discoloration under right armhole. Not noticeable when worn, but the main reason why the price is lower than the other shirts.

    7) White FC Borrelli 16.5/42. SOLD. Includes thick MoP buttons, darts in back. There is some discoloration around the inside collar, along the inside of the french cuff fold, and there are 2 faint marks on the back of the collar and just below it (see pic). Hence price is lowest of all the shirts. Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 23.5"
    Sleeve - 23.5"
    Collar - 16.5"
    Shoulder - 20.5"
    TOC Length - 35.5"

    8) NWOT White with Red Stripes Borrelli 16.5/42. Asking $55 OBO. Includes MoP buttons but they are thinner compared to the other shirts (newer model since this is post-2010). Measurements are as follows:

    Chest - 23"
    Sleeve - 26"
    Collar - 16"
    Shoulder - 18.25"
    TOC Length - 32.75"
