     This. All my Kiton have a drop, including the legit sport coats. Glam: I know a guy who is 52r eu with trex arms. Pm me and I'll put you in touch with him. -- In other news dudes, this, my all time favorite hookup here on the thrift thread, is now too big. And I has a major sad. I'm looking for something similar in a 40/41 U.S. Or 52 eu. There are some very specific things that made this work so well: even though the shoulders went beyond my natural, they were sloped right and structured and the drop and open quarters were perfect. Also note the balance on the lapel bellies and the peak placement: perfect. (It's Oxxford crest btw). If you have something like this, especially patch pocket, in blue get at me. [​IMG]

    Passed on a blue-gray Canali pinstripe at VV today because it was an orphan (3 buttons). Size 50. If anybody in the Seattle area is interested, PM me for where to look.

    Will X-post this to the eBay thread but theres a big and tall store store thats here thats going out of business, and i bought a bunch of their mannequins. they are based on a size 44 or so, and i know a lot of you were mentioning its hard to find mannequins that are bigger. there are no stands available but i don't see how your stand wouldn't work on this - or to find one that would. theres also no wood caps for the top like the one in the pic. i can proxy for you guys if you want, theres probably about 10 more left that i saw when i went yesterday. they were marked at $40 but i talked them down to $20 each. Shipping would be a pain in the butt to be honest but if if you cover actual rates and a proxy fee for my time I'm happy to grab for you as long as they are still available. I'm thinking $20 for the mannequin, $25-$30 for shipping, and $20 for me so $75 or so net - which is worst case for the west coast. east coast would be cheaper. LMK if you are interested and i can pass by this week. would need to have confirmation AKA payment in the next 48 hours though as they are closing and need to get out of the space.

    Prepare yourself for...very few photos. All the time I was out and the number of stores I hit, I got very little. Not that I'm complaining, but it was pretty light today comparatively.
