    im thinking this is 100% the case. It was not an XL - as a Large-ish medium I wouldnt have bought it for my self for fear of it fitting like under armor

    I have 4 very nice left footed trees as well. Too bad one of us didn't score the rights. We could have matched up the mismates. :plain:

    Living in the thrifting wasteland I do, I've decided to start picking things up for trade since I never find good stuff my size. This was a pretty good day for me:

    Zegna, Charles Tyrwhitt (X3), JP Tilford, Leonardo Ceni (NWT). The Tyrwhitts are all french cuff.

    Will oxy the whites for a couple small stains, but otherwise all excellent condition. Ceni: 16.5, Tyrwhitts 17, Zegna XL, Tilford 17. Available.

    Interesting thrifting run yesterday... especially as I usually stick to shoes, ties, and the occasional suit or jacket.

    Very good condition Kiton blue with brown stripes. Lovely color, but too big for me. Tagged 16.5 / 42.

    And a Bosca briefcase. Beautiful patina, perfect medium size, clean inside, has the key, and a few scratches that I could easily live with... but I don't like the gold colored hardware. :confused:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Shirt is available for trade. Willing to be convinced to give up the briefcase if you really want it and we can work something out.

    I know next to nothing about pocket squares — sadly, I have not a single one — but I saw this little guy today, and I know a bunch of you guys are crazy for em. Unfortunately, I only had Euros for some reason, and the place requires a $10 min purchase to use a card. I saw nothing else I wanted. Is it worth it to go back and pick up this unidentified pocket square? Is there a way to identify the unidentified?

    I think these are leftover from a trip to Amsterdam two years ago. They're still in my wallet because I thought I might perchance by a wheel of cheese or a friendly tulip when I was heading through the Amsterdam airport on my way to Kuala Lumpur two weeks ago. Alas, I bought not a thing.

    But if anyone wants to accept Euros for a thrift payment, let me know. But of course, Euros will soon be worthless, right? Right?

    one thing i keep noticing: every time i see PINK shirts (and i see a lot of them), they almost always have light fraying on the tips of the collar. not sure if this says more about their quality or about the buying/donating habits of the original purchasers. anyone else notice that with PINK?
