    Burberry London tends to do okay. I'd do a BIN, though. In my experience, I've lost money on those types of shirts with auctions.

    Yeah man, those button holes could be cut open if someone wanted to make them functional. Nice jacket!

    17 (give or take) x 33ish. Bit more room in the Holland & Sherry's, but the others are just a tad on the short side, and I'm really a 34, I can make them work, but they do hike up a bit when I go into my Spoo pose.

    Also, bonus: They're slimmer than standard OTR shirts. Not skin tight. They still look entirely appropriate over my depressing physique. But much better than the tenty standard fit. Juuuuusst right.

    Dunno. PM me if you want to take a chance.

    Edit: No Adobe Acrobat fans out there for the Ascot Chang with "PDF" on the sleeve just above the (french) cuff? If any of you are in sales, you can use it as a negotiating ploy and tell people your terms are not subject to change.

    I will probably come out for a bit since I live relatively nearby, and don't want to miss this chance. Unfortunately because I don't know too many people, I'll just drop by on Sat to see the vendors and oggle at the expensive items.

    I finally got around to cleaning up the Park Ave's & vintage Alden tassels from last week:

    [​IMG]

    ^ AE Park Ave's 11 E.

    [​IMG]

    ^ Slight surface scuffing on the left toe.

    [​IMG]

    ^ Soles are in good shape - thick and strong. Heels will need to be replaced soon.

    [​IMG]

    ^ Vintage Alden Tassel Loafers 10 1/2 C / E.

    [​IMG]

    ^ Uppers have great patina - no cracking.

    [​IMG]

    ^ Surface scratch on outside edge of right upper.

    [​IMG]

    ^ Soles are thick and strong. Heels show only slight rounding at outer edges.

    EazyE I know it is taboo to ask about location but did I see somewhere that you are in chicagoland?
