    Any interest in Burberry suits? 43L, thought I'd give dibs/deals here before I list on ebay tomorrow. I can provide further deets if asked. Obvious discount for SF. Also, I've got a pair of EUC/unused pair of Chaco Sandels in green. Z/2 model, made in US from before they were bought out and shipped overseas if there's any interest.

    A few people have asked for measurements on the Domenico Vacca shirts. Bigger than I thought they were:

    blue: 16.5/36.5
    brown: 17/37
    red: 17/36.5

    liste rouge: 17.5/36.5

    Here's a lesson in what happens when you spell the name of a commonly counterfeited brand wrong* :fu:

    LACTOSTE

    Just yesterday I was thinking how I never find any pants. Then today, instant odd trouser wardrobe. :slayer: All my size, though most are more full cut than I prefer and will need some tailoring.

    It's pretty time-consuming to take, upload, download, and post pics with a 90% chance they're just going to get shit on by some college goth. :foo:

    I'm thinking of doing a week of fit pics next month, though, AR-Six style. That or Lit Fits, a Continuing Series of Pants and Literature, paid for the Ad Council, I haven't decided.

    If you don't dress poorly they won't be shit on :teach: And how you sell thrift things without expending time on photos?
    Even I managed to put together a fit that went over well. I have no idea what the other bit you're rambling on about means though...

    Also, since it got paged and will need to know soon. Safe to ship ties in padded envelopes?

    Finding Domenico Vacca in a thrift is a bit of a grail find. I think he only has two boutiques in the US, one in NYC on Madison Ave and one in Florida somewhere. Stuff is insane at retail. I know Attolini made some of his suits. Resale is very good as well. Don't know/never heard of the French maker of the linen shirt, but it looks very expensive!





    Wow! Nice haul! Also, I never knew Marantz made speakers. I assume they sound pretty nice. Let me know if I assume correctly if you do hook em up.
