    I'm browsing the bay for a couple right now. Found a similar Hackett one which is the same cut as my navy blue Hackett it looks like.

    I need some summer trousers too...

    Any of you guys interested in spring/summer tees, polos? I'm gonna start going through my 'summer bag' soon ready to list. Let me know. I'll always do deals cheaper than what id list on ebay.

    Gents,

    I bought this for myself, but doesn't fit me as I'd want, and it'd cost just a bit too much to alter. So, it'm making it available here.

    It's a dark tobacco super 130s Sartoria Partenopea for Patrick Hellmann (the "German Tom Ford"). Approx 42/44, will measure in the afternoon today if you're interested.
    2bn, dual vents, ticket pocket, 4/4 surgeon cuffs, flat front trousers, tons of handwork, quite summery fabric (but still quite sturdy).

    Pics below. (Will add more once I figure out how to do that on mobile)

    Btw guys, I got the Partenopea at quite a good price.
    I don't have time for properly doing the whole ebay thing... So I'm only looking to get my money back, basically.

    I suspect it's too big, but what is the pit to pit measurement on the Partenopea, and the trouser waist size please?

    X-Post from thrift thread.

    If you see something you like from @thebuddahman , buy it.
    Always hooking it up with great deals and rad shit. I'll always trade with him.

    The collars on this Pinky are boss.

    First three all local charity shops, total spend <£10.

    One of my fave finds. Always cheap as the shops don't recognise it, but sell well. Small stain right at the bottom, way below where tucked in. (AVAILABLE):

    Pop for me. Checks out as genuine via the tag numbers. (AVAILABLE)

    And a second pop in the next shop, a very rare visitor to the UK. Fits amazingly well on me, really unusual for a 'regular' fit. (NOT AVAILABLE)
    [​IMG]

    E-thrift staple for me, which also fits amazingly, NWOT. NOT AVAILABLE.

    AE Dryden E-thrift which are too small for me, so available. US 10.5B, and too narrow for me. Probably a narrow UK 9-9.5. AVAILABLE

    Finally, my Hackett tie failed the gren check, and I mentioned I had a Tyrwhitt I thought was the same which was a BNWT e-thrift with a CT label saying it was gren, so I offer it up for checking also:

    @Nickd might want that Eton depending on size, I'm sure. :)
