    I can take the sides in myself, so it's more than cheap, but aren't the shoulders too big?

    Not sure about how cold it gets there, but having some shoulder space for a chunky knit sweater is a good thing.

    Hi,

    The coat has some condition issues so you aren't going to get much for it. It is roughly a 46S if you are going to list it. Also there is an eBay thread here that would probably help more, not all of the guys here sell there stuff so don't really think about resale value. I would also like to add that if you post in the future, please upload the photos using the

    [​IMG]

    Button. This will add the pictures inline. The way you did it, I had to download all 6 pictures to my computer one at a time which I normally wouldn't do but I happened to be on a stupefyingly boring conference call this morning.

    My usual size is 42/42,5 and I find that CPs usually fits me best in a 41, 42 being too big. I have a pair of bottega woven slipons in a size 41 and they are abit too small, the width is ok but they are abit too short. They are sized smaller than CPs is what I mean.

    Appreciate it, thanks. Will try my luck I guess! I have a bit of room in the CP's so maybe I'll get lucky.

    Found this 1980's awesomeness. I'm not sure they are worth all that much. But, it definitely brought back memories!

    I had that thought initially, but the fact that it was made in a Chicago store plus the proportions of the I really make me say no to Iowa State. If it was, it had to be 1940s-1950s and even then I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be able to use same block I legally.
