    Here's that Zegna I found the other day that was already converted. 46R/L Available
    It's Navy even though the second half of the photos look gray. I turned the flash off for a closup of the pick stitching and forgot to turn it back on.

    The measurements are as follows.
    Chest 48"
    Waist 46"
    Sleeve 26"
    Shoulder 20.5"
    Length BOC 32"

    I'm really digging the conversion. PM'd hoping it's available.

    Conference thrift question: I MAY have some time (probably not) to thrift during a lull in an upcoming conference at Turnberry Isle in Miami (well, Aventura). I noticed there's a Goodwill a short taxi-ride away. Worth it? Anyone?

    It would be on Tuesday afternoon, methinks.

    Personally I think it's fun to thrift in different cities when you are out of town. Just to see what the styles were there and how much of the same crap you see no matter where you are at.

    I would research the wealthiest neighborhoods and find the thrift stores closest to them, aka maximize your limited time. In the case of Miami: Boca Raton and Bal Harbour, depending on your starting location.

    As long as you promise not to get towed. ;)
    Easily. Maybe the last 2 years. Those are not just any Lobbs either. Those are $1560 retail, never on sale, current Chapels.

    So... I found something interesting today, but I'm not sure what to make of it as I'm largely ignorant on the subject. If anyone can toss up any advice or input, that'd be great. This jacket was hanging behind the counter at a Goodwill. It appears most of the tags have been cut out. I mean... it feels absolutely great, but I have no idea whether it's real/fake/not good versace? Here are some pictures. (not sure how to rotate the pics, as I'm also ignorant about Macs/digital cameras/etc...)

    LOL... I PM'd him asking about them, they would fit me and I have a brand new in box pair of Lobb trees that would fit the shoes. If he's gotta go the Ebay route that's cool... but if he consigns with Spoo I'll consign my NIB trees to make a package ^^;


    As far as my own finds lately - I found some Ray Bans! These, to be specific: Ray Ban 3247's.

    actually, no, it's silver on the front - like this:

    Buck ninety-nine...

    but with prescription lenses. :fu: Wondering how difficult it would be to get replacement plain sunglass lenses...

    That jacket is gorgeous. If that fits a L, Id be tempted to wear it myself. Very real, and probably one of the top leathers Versace made at the time. Dates to right around his death, 1996-1997. Are you selling it?
