    Well Tben, I dont know what to say. I compare your thrifting today to a few months ago, you have come on leaps and bounds.

    As for Robert Graham shirt, I give up with trying to guestimate their values. $400 for a piece of crap on eBay, bare minimum though for NWT is $80/$90. Looks like a tux shirt with that ribbed front.

    Ittierre made stuff typically no better than Made in Turkey or Made in Malaysia etc. For that item, it should be OK. Any suitings with Ittierre's stamp have leave me alone written all over them.

    A really cool one?

    Looks like a shooting jacket or some type of outdoor coat. Is that liner snap/button in?

    OK, swappers, a month or 2 back I mentioned a nice find, a 3pc polo tweed suit.

    I have been on a hot streak lately and it's time for one of those soul-searching closet cleanouts, and this is up for grabs. It's marked 40R but it's altered more to a 38 or 39.

    Am thinking of eBaying this suit. However, before I go and do that, I'll offer it up for swap, because this thread is where my heart lies. PM me with offers/questions/further discussion/brickbats.

    Approx Measurements:
    pants 32-32 (plenty to let out; cuffed)
    chest 20
    shoulder 19
    waist 18.5
    length 29.5
    sleeve (there's slack to be left out if needed) 25

    The detailing is amazing (i.e pants inseam you can barely see because the pattern is uninterrupted mostly everywhere you look, the vest is notch-lapeled and lined, etc)

    Looking for some Alden 9D shoes, a 40R cashmere SC, or make me an offer (an assortment of grenadine ties & solid colors? Looking for both. Surprise me).

    Yeah it is a wool jacket with a wool liner that buttons in. I didn't buy it to make money, I just thought it was too interesting to not buy. I figured it was some sort of shooting blazer, but I was wondering if it was a specific type of jacket. It is tagged large, but is a very big large. Thanks for the help, it is nice to find other people who would find it interesting!
