    Wanted to post this before Mainy embarrasses us all:

    Brooks Brothers Khaki Sport Coat (42ish - nice coat for summer)

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Pringle of Scotland Silk/Silk Blend Sport Coat (44)

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    First non-sweater item I've seen from them

    Older Brioni Solid Navy Blazer

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Here's the real interesting piece - NWOT/NOS Battistoni Sport Coat (for Barneys) from 2004 (Size 50US)

    [​IMG]

    Pockets are all still basted shut, sleeves do not have the buttons sewn on (unfortunately the buttons were nowhere to be found!)

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Not Pictured:

    - Brooks Brothers Flat Front Gray Pants with $5 in the pocket (they've already paid for themselves!)
    - PRL Made in Italy Brown Leather Belt ($2)

    Left Behind:

    Another Brioni Navy Sport Coat (46) - had a hole, some tearing inside and was missing a number of "Brioni Roma" signature buttons.
    Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Navy Suit (with LP Fabric - 44) - both shoulders were torn inside, missing all the front buttons and it was $45

    Left Behind:

    A number of Missoni & Valentino Ties, plus a Versace (all $50 each)

    Mcallisters are on the #5 last which AE states as being longer and narrower that its standard #1 and #7 lasts. I'm a TTS 12d and #1 and #7 last AEs fit perfectly. I spent over an hour getting a pair of Mcallister AEs to fit before the salesman figured out 11.5 EE.

    TL;DR #5 Last is long and narrow--if you don't know how it fits you try it on in an AE store before you buy.

    Good luck,
    AB

    Went out to a couple of spots. Not much out today, but here are the highlights:

    1x Brioni Tie.

    1x Sulka dress shirt. 17.

    1x Pringle of Scotland wool argyle sweater.

    1x really nice "Monticello" for Nordstrom made in New England brown leather dress belt. 34. (I don't know a thing about "Monticello," but the belt was really nice and the made in NE is what hooked me.)

    All Available.

    Thanks, -M-

    This is actually really good to know. I've noticed that my AE size is all over the place. This must be why. Thanks!

    Yup, these are my dilemma. They are stretching naturally, but slowly.


    If the Rapture is that satorially swanky, count me in.

    No prob. :fistbump:

    The store actually offers way more than what is shown on their website. I almost want to walk in there and help them get their online sales up and going.

    Ties like Hermes and Charvets(sometimes as low as $17.50!) that they could easily unload online.
