    Some recent items to show off the HF orgy going on in my trunk this last week and to offer for sale before eBay. PM me quickly if you have any interest in a good price below eBay pricing before I get these listed here soon (listing today and tomorrow to start tomorrow night):

    Hickey Freeman DB suit size 40R

    Gieves & Hawkes (made by HF) Dark Navy/Charcoal Flannel Piss-me-right-off Suit in 43L

    I just sent FOUR HF/G&H suits to the tailor and then found this one and I like it better than the other four. I just love a nice medium weight flannel. I can't justify more tailoring costs so someone please buy this......fast.

    Canali Super 120s Jacket (presumably orphaned) - awesome 3 roll 2 size 54 (Euro) - I think it has enough panache to make is as a sport coat

    I looked it up on the internetz, and some belt sites said you could, so I tried it out. No issues, so it's good to go. Thanks, though!

    Checked the Marshall's out here. Ties saw Brooks Brothers and Vineyard Vines. Did see a BB suit in the clearance for $250...unfortunately it was a size 50.

    Not a huge find, but I got two polo dress shirts today at a local thrift. Both are custom fit with the regent collar. No pocket and no pony.

    [​IMG]

    They are tagged 15/34 (purple) and 15.5/34 (blue), but the blue one's sleeves are pretty short. Probably like a 32. It also fits slimmer. The sleeves are too short for me and I can't wear it, so PM if anyone is interested. I'm keeping the purple one.

    I did the same when visiting my parents in central FL. They had a stock of four ties. I think Marshalls tiers the stores and doesn't send the good stuff everywhere.

    I grabbed a nice dark purple check the other day - same thing without the pony and without the pocket - and found it to be a very nice shirt. It's one of the only ones I have found recently that run fairly slim and won't need the sides tailored...

    If it's nice have it cut down. Most experienced cobblers should be able to do that no problem and shouldn't cost too much.

    Was gonna pick up a Burberry suit made of denimish material, pretty interesting but felt a size too big so I left it there. :mad:

    In your thrift store 10 minutes ago
    So I go into a TJ Maxx today and after passing on some Robert Graham shirts and a very nice PRL multicolor madras-y shirt with a blue striped oxford collar (sounds busy -- and it was -- but cool)...I ran into this lady, as Springsteen said in "Glory Days," she was walkin' in, I was walkin' out...

    [​IMG]

    ...and I double-take, she looks at me oddly, and I say "I'm sorry, don't I know you form somewhere?"

    She says "I'm Kelly Ayotte, I represent you in Washington in the Senate."

    "Oh yeah," I said, shaking her hand. "Sorry, I'm on the other side, but it's nice to meet you."

    Found this 40R D&G that's in really nice shape. Kind of a funky looking suit but figured it would fetch something on ebay.

    Im dead serious.

    Ike Behar is really more well known for ties and shirts, most usually clogging up NMLCs across America. The suiting, while I have no idea who makes it, is probably mid-range at best in terms of quality. However, that looks like me all day long and I don't care. :D

    Whats the button/vent/pleat situation? And the sleeve length? These answers will either put me out of my misery, or pelt you with PMs. :lol:

    LOL
    3 buttons
    center vent
    Single pleat
    Measurements - Sleeves L from shoulder seam 24 in , Jacket length 31, armpit to armpit 19
    Pants L 40 in, W 32, 2" Cuff with 2 more in to let out.
    Upon further inspection, i am 95% confident it has never been worn, maybe tried on.

    More pics from my crappy Blackberry
