    If Dr Phil is 46XL in suit coats and blazers I am interested. You should also note that the Xlong sizes actually sell quite well.

    Found this particular leather jacket by Ralph Lauren at a steal price. I believe it's called the Bradford jacket and retailed for $695. I wore it once and I realized that the fit of it just isn't for me. If anyone's interested in buying it off me, please shoot me a message. It's a size medium and in amazing condition. No bad odor, stains, etc.

    Too big for me as well but it was on a rack all by itself and was calling to me, "Tom, my owner gave me up for adoption after multiple years of service, I am sad, alone, need a friend and a good home. Can you take me in?"



    Can we ad Lanvin to this list along with YSL and Dior? Or should it be a separate sub-topic.



    So you are telling me I should have picked up that lot of Donna Karan Couture. Not Saint Andrews but Martin Greenfield isn't shabby either. [​IMG]



    Awesome jacket!

    Details on the aquascutum mac? I am interested :)

    whats the danger in wearing an orphaned suit jacket as an SC - I do it all the time (the pants to most of them tucked safely in my closet - and not actually orphaned). Folks seem to spend a lot of time worrying about it, and I'm wondering what I'm missing.

    Just wanted to vouch for Dahl5yankees as a solid trader and person. Great, mutually beneficial trade accomplished this week.

    No doubt....that is a Lanvin. Hard to miss as they seem to have their name everywhere on that tie.

    How come this thread doesn't have a Lanvin expert?

    Oh yeah, these were big boys. Now they didn't say "Dr. Phil wore these pants" on the inside, but they were high quality in a big size from a place where he's been known to donate a thing or to.



    I'll see if I can check back today and get a more accurate measurement.


    That's funny, I passed over that same Barba the other day when I saw the hole in the elbow. I hate when that happens, so close!

    My favorite shirt I own is a Barba Napoli. Easily the best fit I have since they seem to dart their shirts...and the detail work on it is fantastic. Great shirtmakers.

    What does the MG pocket tag look like in a Donna Karan jacket (mind taking a picture next time)?

    The only one I've ever seen was this one from a jacket I sold....[​IMG]

    Shameless plug for the trading spread sheet.

    I finally got around to adding a couple of items to it, as well as adding it to my sig. Everyone go and do likewise.

    Usually, it's the shoulder pads. I agree that a lot of people can't tell the difference, but often I see guys wearing jackets as SC's, and the shoulders just look off.




    So, I'm going to play the Thrift Fit Pic Game today. This is the Oxxford SC I picked up a few months ago. The tie is BB Makers from Mr. Floors to Go. If the waist looks a little tight, it is. Working on it.
