With the unfortunate incident involving ebay, and their lack of speed in their replies, I need to sell some items so that I can eat and buy books this week. I know that some items are wrinkled and I will steam/iron them before shipping, so please excuse that. Also, feel free to PM me for additional pics, questions, offers, or measurements. First up is a sharp Belvest sport coat. Tagged size is Euro 54L, could also work for a Eu54R - check the measurements. I cannot tell if the blazer is really dark gray or black, but it certainly does not have that stark, empty look that typical black suits/jackets have. I think this is due in part to the extremely luxurious fabric, which is a 3-season wool/cashmere blend with a fantastic hand, really has a nice depth to it. All the usual details of high-end garments are found on this jacket - pick stitching, silk herringbone lining, fully-canvassed construction. Made in Italy. Jacket has laquered metal buttons with 'B' logo, and spare buttons enclosed in a bag. A tailor could switch these out for horn or standard brass buttons if you desire. Jacket is in excellent shape, save for one faint 1/6" spot on the lapel where the fibers seem to be matted down for some reason - not sure if a tailor can do anything to 'brush' them back up. Looking for $100 shipped in the US. Now $85 shipped. 46" chest, 20.5" shoulders, 24.5" from shoulder seam to end of sleeve, 32.25" length.Great pair of Polo (from the Golf line, though I would say quality is about the same as RL Blue Label) 100% cotton corduroy slacks in a perfect shade of sherbert orange. These are great for spring, and I could see them worn with a sky blue shirt, tan coat (with a blue windowpane perhaps), and brown suede shoes. Standard cut, tab front, tagged size 36 and measure 37x28 (37x29.5 due to the longer rise) with about 1" to let out. Note there is some red thread showing in dots along the hem, not sure why, but not real noticable. $25 shipped. Now $20 shipped.Next up is a great Brooks Brothers 44R beige sport coat with faint blue windowpane. Tag has been clipped, but feels like perhaps a linen/silk blend, or wool/linen/silk. Very light and fine, with a great texture to it. Two button, single vent. $36 shipped in the US. Now $25 shipped. Measures 46" chest, 20" shoulder, 25" sleeve, and 31" length.NWT Escada silk tie, really nice tie for a 'Designer' name. Silk is very soft, and decently heavy. Black and royal blue woven design. Retail price was around $130-140 I believe, I'm asking $28 shipped. Note there are a few loose silk strands near the tip of the tie which can be clipped. Made in Italy Now $24 shipped.
