    This readily explains his plethora of women's Versace gear and the relative dearth of mens *JUSTSAYIN*

    @ amnesiacv2: I'm hoping to get $149.00 + $15.00 shipped CONUS (it's pretty heavy and if it ends up costing more, I'll cover the difference). In any case, I'm taking all reasonable offers.

    Dude, I love knit ties. I'd gladly take that RLPL off your hands for you.

    Made one stop last night on the way home from work and came back with these two HF sportcoats: (left is worsted wool, right is 90/10 wool/cashmere)

    Both 44R but fit decently well over a sweater on my 42R self so I'm guessing they're tailored down a little. Still deciding if I like the 3 button or if they're up for grabs.

    Left behind a few others as well as an orphaned DB Zegna jacket. Guessing they all came from the same place.

    Glad to see someone else got to benefit some that donation. There were four recent Samuelsohn sportcoats I left behind. Were they still there?

    There was at least one left. I knew I should only buy a couple things and these were the best looking to me.

    A few things from yesterday.

    Aquascutum blazer made of quite heavy wool. It will be interesting to see if I can pull off wearing a traditional brass button blazer.

    [​IMG]

    Two pairs of Canali pants in perfect condition. These are the nicest pants I've ever held in my hands, a real physical lesson on what quality feels and looks like. It's a shame they're too small for me. I measured them if anybody is interested.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Hardy Amies tie, Ermenegildo Zegna tie and a pink linen Lands End tie. I absolutely love all three of these.

    I've sifted through at least a dozen in the past week. What size are you looking for?
