    Finding everything that ISN'T my size, lately

    Here are some things I thought others might have an interest in:

    Older, but great condition Nordstrom navy blue 2B wool suit - 42S
    Older, but great condition Nordstrom charcoal w/ blue large checks 2B wool suit - 42S
    Perfect condition JPress olive gun club check 3-roll-2 (no tags, but it looks recent). It was very large on me. Somewhere between a 48L and 50L, I'd estimate).

    ::EDIT: Forgot there was also a recent thick cotton JCrew Khaki coat, size M, with length ending around the knees. I'm usually a medium, and it fit larger on me all around. VERY nice condition, even if you aren't into JCrew.

    ::EDIT Part Deux:: Also saw a pair of 14E AE "snuff suede" (read: brown) player's shoes (http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF9722_1_40000000001_-1). They were in really good condition, except for a small discoloration in the suede near the base of the laces of the left shoe (no more than inch width wise). I would have picked them up to flip, if not for that. Otherwise, I didn't see anything setting off alarm bells.

    Not a bad day here. Found a sweet Oxxford Neiman Marcus blue wool jacket that actually fits. Then in the same store I picked up my first ever Seven Fold tie.

    I feel your pain on finding everything that ISN'T your size. I seem to be having the same luck. Probably found the largest quantity of shirts I ever found at a single store but it all was in sizes 46 or 18 or 18 1/2 with 38 sleeves. Hickey Freeman, H. Freeman and Sons, Zegna, Gittman Bros., Eton, and BB.

    ...Left it all. Did pick up a great vintage BB sweater, Made in England, a pretty nice no name raincoat, and a tie for Nordstrom.

    Quit your #%&%&*...I'm a 46 and I rarely find anything my size. The thing is if you find the good stuff in a larger size, there are a few of use bigger guys that pick up the smaller stuff to swap. Plus even if you don't swap it here...odd ball sizes sell on eBay.

    I here you, I always look out for big guys, but not that big. 18 1/2 38? Can a smaller size guy get some love too? I just don't want a closet full of 2XT's with nowhere to go with it. Ebay is a last resort for me.

    I'd love to be able to pick some of this stuff up to trade, etc, but my wallet can't afford the off-chance no one will take it. I'll have to take a look at the trading thread.

    Ok, I'd love some help with authentication. A poster asked for more detailed pics of the tie, and form them thinks that this might not be authentic, which is concerning to me, as I don't believe i've ever picked up anything else inauthentic. I trust the big wigs here the most, plus I originally posted it earlier in this thread. It's a Ferragamo tie, pics below.

    The poster's concern appears to be that mine is lacking the "Salvatore Ferragamo" written on a diagonal strip, which he said is on every Ferragamo tie he owns, both woven and printed. Here's an example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Salvatore-F...S_Mens_Ties&hash=item3a6ce78e79#ht_500wt_1242. It's the part where the name is written in yellow diagonally.

    So, anyone got any feedback? Nothing stood out to me about it at the time I purchased it.

    Thanks!

    Androfan,

    It's real....possibly more dated than the ones he has, but I have couple that have that same build..maybe not that design or color tho!

    Andro...looks legit. I've seen some beat but SF ties that don't have the diagonal logo. I'd check the material tag to make sure it doesn't say $40

    Found a MINT 38r full length dark gray herringbone wool topcoat if anyone is interested would sell pretty cheap or trade for something cool like a nice tie or something. Bought it for a friend a while back, but it was a touch too small for him and it's been sitting in my closer for months. Just want it gone.
