    I think I'll start looking at bags....

    Nothing amazing but picked up a few shirts and a Big Burberry London Blue Blazer size 56 PRT (Don't know if this is anyones size who's a thrifter here, but take a look at the measurements and PM if would fit, I'm in the holiday mood and it was too nice to let sit on the rack).

    Burberry London Blue Blazer
    Size: Tagged 56 PRT
    Chest (armpit to armpit on back): 29.75"
    Shoulder (seam to seam on back): 22.75"
    Arm (shoulder seam to end of arm): 24.5"
    Overall Length (bottom of collar to hem): 33"

    Hugo Boss 15-32/33, Valentino 15.5-32/33 and I think NWOT Burberry White Polo Large (had two tiny tiny dots on bottom, but feels like new crisp cotton).

    Burberry London Blazer would fit the incredible hulk. Good luck selling it, you may get lucky. I will snag that Burberry Brit Polo shirt if it is not too trim. I usually fit XL on the slimmer / tailored side, but it the L fit is regular, that would work as a beater. LMK.

    [​IMG] -- I don't know if the Spanish sets are as expensive as the ones in English (which I know are like 150 new or so) but I got this set today for my M.I.L. for 20$. She teaches a class at her church and is always in need to Spanish language Bible story books for the families in her class.

    found this cool goose down jacket as well:

    Had a pretty good night... Picked up 3 Harris Tweeds, but one had moth holes I missed in the store [​IMG]

    Picked up some nice shirts:

    From top left: Etro, Robert Talbott BOC with black MOP buttons, Canali with MOP buttons, Hickey Freeman, Hickey Freeman
    [​IMG]

    The Canali is hanging in my closet, the others are available.

    I also picked up a nice 2-ply cashmere Orvis sweater and a nice brown v-neck wool sweater by Hickey Freeman. The Orvis is staying after I spent an hour with the sweater stone, the HF is chocolate brown, size XL and available.

    I probably shouldn't have, but I picked up a Karl Lagerfeld suit in a nice grey glen check pattern. The lapels are a bit low and the shoulders too padded, but I love the fabric and the pants fit well. Dunno if I could even flip it.

    The absolute best thing I got was a Purdey tweed hacking jacket. It's absolutely gorgeous and so well made. I wish it was my size, but it's a 46R.

    Also, does anyone know about this tag?

    It was in a nice suit made for a local fine menswear store in town. I did a quick search on eBay and saw some stuff about Coppley bespoke suits, but I wasn't sure if this was flippable. Thoughts?

    Please tell me this runs a little small (closer to a 44 R) and you're willing to sell it! :D

    Wow, I got Nataku excited! It must be good [​IMG]

    I am willing to sell it. As much as I love it and wish it would fit me it just doesn't.

    I'm not sure of how big a 44R is, but here's the measurements:

    shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 19.25"
    Back from the bottom of the collar to the bottom: 32"
    Sleeves from the seam to the end: 26"

    Did I mention it has an awesome contrasting red under the collar when you flip it up? It also has surgeon's cuffs.

    If nat doesn't want it I'm interested. I would never bid against him though, he's been far too generous with me!

    Cool, you two are ahead of the que. Without you two fine people in line for this one, I would be wanting that jacket against my better judgement since I am Long, not Regular.

    I think I dodged a bullet here because of both of your interest in that excellent tweed jacket. I have weak willpower ;)

    :cheers:

    There are a couple more guys that are right around a 44 R, so I think we have this thread covered pretty well. It really has become a sale/trade thread in it's own right.
