Dig, what size are you again? I picked up a BBGF DB navy/brass 2 days ago.
Ok, so I'll play along...although I absolutely hate having my picture taken.
100% Thrifted (minus socks and drawers)
3 piece No Name brown nail head suit. (pants need taken in a bit and shortened)
Brooks Brothers 1818 burgundy pin stripe button down.
Hanover L B Sheppard PTBs
No Name Leather Belt
Total cost - about $19
Depending on the cut, 38S, 40S or 42S! I was wearing my suede BB (small) jacket all day today!
I think you may have missed my post yesterday(?) about my visit to the Boatyard a couple of Sundays back. Bring it with you next time you're down and well have lunch/dinner/whatever.
It's more of a 42R.
Chest 45, Waist 42, Sleeve 24, Shoulder 19.5, Length 31.
I did see it and totally forgot to comment on that. Glad you liked it. I can't find any decent seafood up here, so its always a treat when I go there.
The shoulders/sleeveheads look perfect on that jacket. That's always problematic for me. Have the sleeves shortened a bit when you get the pants done. Flatfronts look good as well. Nice outfit.
Go to the completed listings I'm my eBay. Find the link on my sig below. I just sold a pair of new BB's brown perf captoes (11B) made by c&j for $230. You can check.the pics of the inside of the shoe to compare to what you saw. If they fit $100 is a very good price for that shoe.
I have an Italian-made tuxedo shirt with buttons behind the outer cuff of the double sleeve cuff and sewn on just above the exterior buttonhole of the interior sleeve cuff - that style of sleeve cuff is out there, but not really common in my experience. I've also seen a Brioni tuxedo shirt with an extended rear shirt-tail that comes up between your legs and fastens to the front shirt-tail around the fly area meant to keep it from coming untucked. This style of shirt reminds me of a baby's onesy.
Had a good haul after a couple week drought. If anyone is a 36-38 R, with a 28-30" waist, this is all yours!

Sorry, no photos till tomorrow. Left my camera at the office.
^^^^ Wow, that is a good haul. What a shame it is not your size!
Capnwes, nice suit. Before you have the pants shortened, can you wear them higher? Ideally the shirt shouldn't be visible between pants and vest.
Thanks, I guess I could. I have always worn them low, if I wear them higher they just fall down again. Perhaps I need suspenders.
DIBS depending on measurements!!
Here's what I came up with today:
Ermenegildo Zegna 85% cotton / 15% cashmere long sleeved shirt. Faint blue & gray grid pattern over a light colored, herringbone textured background. The size tag in VERY faint - made in Italy(?). 17 1/2 neck & 26 inches from shoulder seam to cuff.
Ermenegildo Zegna 100% cotton twill flat front pants lined to the knee, with finished seams, and cuffed. Kind of a dark mustard in color. Made in Romania. 38 x 30 or so. (These are really classy.)

And a pile of vintage 1960's Brooks Brothers ties.
Everything's available. Lemme know if anyone has any questions or wants to see pic's. Thanks! -M-
Similar to Nat, had a solid haul this week. However in contrast, got the goods for the huskier fellas, 43-46:
Recent Brioni POW Super 150's SC in 44R. Feels good man.
Brioni Herringbone SC in 44L
Oxxford Navy Blue with Thin White Stripes Suit in 43R
Corneliani SC in 46R
Interesting piece from Yohji's mainline:
It's like a kimono + cardigan. I like it.
Picked up a couple of orphaned recent Oxxfords that I think could be used as SC's. Too lazy to take pics and post.
Left a BB 1818 Fitzgerald.
That Brioni POW...my lord, what a sight.
