    By the way, this is my ebay page for those of you who are interested. Always willing to do deals off ebay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/butterworths/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
    (Let me know if tht doesn't work)

    I've got lots of stuff I've not got round to listing yet (young family + full time job) so feel free to let me know what you are looking for and I can see if I already have it.

    I sort of worked it out. The ticket pocket gave it away (and the previous description was a bit more telling, I think it even said made in England).
    Then, I shipped it to a friend in the UK for the free returns - and he measured it, confirming it was too big for me.

    Edit:
    I did have some good experience with things off Oxfam online... Scored another RLPL (the one in my post) for cheap.

    If anyone is interested I have a beautiful navy Battistoni blazer with peak lapels which my brother got MTM and never ended up wearing. It's got a fantastic cut and drapes beautifully, and the fabric (either 100% wool or wool/silk mix, I have to check) is light and breezy. I'm not a fan of the style myself as it is a bit too old school (long jacket, roomy chest, quite padded shoulders) for my taste, and so it's looking for a new home. Fits like a long 50.

    I think I have a dark grey suit by New & Lingwood, new with tags. Possibly some others. Never worn due to weight loss. Will check for you tomorrow morning.
