    This is hella awesome.


    Definitely the start price and the pics. Try $9.99 NR, and have your lead image as one of the whole coat, either on a mannequin or on a hanger.

    Also instead of your title as this :

    I humbly suggest

    Vintage 1964 Brooks Brothers 40R Tweed Plaid POW Jacket Sport Coat Blazer Trad Prep NR


    Thats gonna get a few hundo, for sure.

    I have a pair of Alden-made Brooks Brothers tassel loafers. The loafers made by Alden have some distinctive raised stitching ("foxing") on the back. If yours have that, they are Aldens. http://www.cigaraficionado.com/webfeatures/show/id/Tasseled-Loafers_7439

    E. Zegna, sz XL

    1st Stefano Ricci tie I've seen outside the stores. The stiching is kinda sloppy. Like some guy just used a needle and thread.
    [​IMG]
    Basic white Ted Baker shirt. However if you roll up your sleeves, you get some flair. sz 16 x 32/33

    All available.

    Hit up a grand opening today, with mixed results.

    First, some things I've skipped. If anyone's interested, I'll be going back tomorrow.

    HF Super 120's suit (44R-ish) in an black with blue windowpane pattern

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Santorelli (Zegna Cloth) hounds tooth

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hugo Boss (I know, I know) wool/cashmere charcoal grey chalk stripe (42S)

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Burberry hounds tooth 3btn SC

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Now for the things I bought:

    Beige trench and charcoal grey hounds tooth overcoat (No tags or labels on either, but they seem nice and fit me well.)

    Black U.S. Navy (I believe, anyway) overcoat, fits like a glove [​IMG](40R). No tags or labels, though. Can someone point me in the right direction to ID this?

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Saks 5th Avenue Hunting Stewart cashmere/wool scarf
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Also, due the recent talk about S/M flannel work shirts selling so well, I spent an inordinate amount of time scouring the racks, to no avail. But I did find this gem . . .

    How much to take the 40S off your hands?

    Hello! I came up with these Silvano Lattanzi brown shell cordovan, split-toe Norvegese bluchers at a local thrift store. I'm having problems trying to find the sizing of these shoes. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks, -M-

    I also had a good day (even though the Alexandre thing didn't work out). Tons of shirts, ties and BB merino sweaters -- plus a vintage (1996) Dunhill mid-gray glenplaid with red overcheck suit, side vented, pleated trousers. Needs a very good cleaning, but has no defects. I'll post some pics of the haul either later tonight or tomorrow.

    I passed, however, on a Hickey black label (early 2000s?) plaid jacket (very similar to the BB that The-WGP was selling on Ebay) with beautiful blue lining. My size, VGC. GW just wanted too much for it. It's haunting me.

    I also passed on a pair of Church's handmade light tan wingtips in a ~9.5 D. $66. Shoes aren't my thing AT ALL, so help me out here, gents: did I miss an opportunity? They were just a tad too small for me, so I would only but them to resell.

    Looks a tad small on you. Like you're a regular wearing a small.

    WHAT! Whats the insole/outsole measurements? If its about 12.25 on the outsole, 11.25 on the insole, you should probably send them to me.

    I'm a US size 10 1/2 C (slightly narrow) and these shoes are a too big for me. I put an insole in them and they fit, but with heel slippage. Like I said, I can't tell what size they are. The only markings that I think MAY relate to size are the last line of text in the second picture. They seem to be on or about a US 10 1/2 or 11, however, I cannot be sure of actual width... calling all Lattanzi enthusiasts, lol. -M-

    The exterior sole measures almost EXACTLY 12 inches from toe to heel and 4 1/4 across the widest part of the exterior ball of the foot. -M-
