    Not that small... The Etro is a 39, the rest are in the 16 / 41 ~34 sleeve range. All from one guy I expect.

    EDIT: Here's some pics


    Etro marked at size 39

    Hey, sorry for just responding to this, but if you want it you can have it at pretty much cost + shipping ($19 + probably $11 or so...it's heavy as hell. I can get an exact shipping estimate if you'd like). The sleeves are a bit too short for me, and it's just too random of a piece to try flipping probably. Let me know if you're interested.

    EDIT: Though, as someone mentioned above, it's likely not navy issue, but was made for civilians, by the same manufacturers who make the navy issue peacoats. I showed it to my stepdad (marine) and he agreed that is probably the case. Not sure if that changes anything.

    EDIT: Or a trade would be awesome too if you have stuff that fits me!

    I typically wear a 42L. I'll take measurements when I get home tonight.

    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?
    [/quote] Coppley is a Canadian company. Their stuff is decent quality, but it isn't worth buying to flip. The brand isn't desirable enough to generate many bidders.

    I ordered this John Varvatos Star USA tweed sport coat from STP and after all said and done, costed me a total of $132.

    Maybe not as impressive as what others have gotten, but I am pretty happy with the result.

    Then you wouldn't mind sharing some of your thrifting spots would you? [​IMG]

    I actually have family in Plano that I see once or twice a year.
