    Mont Blanc boots, pre-restoration.size 11 D, may be available.

    Twin Canali's, I like Nataku's idea of us "rescuing" items from thrift stores. These had been sitting on the rack for about two weeks. They were marked down twice, so I thought it was time to pull the trigger. I know Canali doesn't get much love here, but these shirts are beautiful. One for sure is nwot as it still has the little plastic thing around the collar. Size 16.5 L, available

    Tag missing short sleeve check shirt, made in "America", my size. Anybody recognize this tag?

    Nice Zegna, white with light blue and gray stripes. Size 16.5, made in Spain. Available.

    Casey Jones Casual's, "Tapered and Tails" plaid shirt, my size. Made in the USA.
    [​IMG]
    Safari/hunting shirt. Label missing. This one has it all, shotgun shell holders in the pockets, quilted shoulder pads, d-rings to hold your grenades:) I was going to keep this but now I'm having second thoughts about the fit. It might be a little too big.

    PRL band collar ocbd, with some commemorative shit going on. Any thoughts?

    Unstructured check blazer. This thing has zero padding in the shoulders. I only need to have the sleeves let down 3/4 an inch and It's going to fit like a glove. Looks to be from the 70's? judging by the lapel with. Not one tag to be seen on this.

    It's actually more of a green/olive color than the picture would suggest.

    I, for one, am :cloud: Still waiting for satisfaction on DM7's little tease from a couple of days ago (though he's probably going through finals, so he gets dispensation). But if I get blueballed again, Ima be freaking furious.

    Sadly he said they were 44-46 L. Think entire business tycoon x Fashionishta's wardrobe. That's all I'll say. I don't want to spoil the epicness of his score.

    Yup, I'm a 42-44 R/L. The sad part was (well, for me anyway) is that I missed out on the haul (not that I would have gotten it anyway).

    FYI - If anyone wanted Allen Edmonds.... 2 for $200 is a hell of a deal for 2nds. Just ordered Malvern in suede, Player in dark suede, and hopefully a Bayfield Brown (waiting on confirmation) + a proxy for someone in Canada who I have bought for before! [​IMG]

    Well, it is not a pair of mint Lobbs, or a find of the century by SF standards. That said, I did just have my BEST HAUL EVER, and for my locale i think it is something.

    I will post pics of all stuffs later, but for now I will say this: 4 suits; Gianlucca Isaia Napoli, Southwick, Bernini, and Hugo Boss.

    Of those brands I have only ever seen Boss in Oregon previously.
