    Nice suit!! Wish it was a size smaller. Someone should grab that quick!

    In regards to the pants. All the NWT suits I have had, had this in the breast pocket or back pants pocket for the tailor to attach (so it is not a random thing added after). I thought, correct me if I'm wrong!!, it was to make sure you didnt step on the back inside of the pants with the heel of your shoe and wear though the fine material.

    If you can document that he threatened negative feedback then you can have it removed.

    Found a vintage Brioni blazer this week end that I would like to offer to some of you smaller frame guys. It is a 47 EU / 37 US and is in navy blue- much darker that photos. Wool and silk blend. The buttons have Brioni Roma and appear to be brass / enamel. I apologize for the fit of the jacket on the form, but as most of you know, this is what happens when you put a size 37 / 47 on a side 40 / 50 form. Over all it is in pretty good condition, and probably needs a good dry clean as it appears to have accumulated some dust. Double vent, fully lined has a belt in the back that attaches the vents. Brioni Roma pattern on lining.

    PM me if you have an interest in purchase or trade.

    I had an idea 10 years ago for a kids M.J. shirt but fearing a lawsuit, I never acted on it.
    (Multi-coloured kiddie crayon font style.)
    Front text:: [COLOR=FF00AA]"Michael Jackson touched my butt and all I got was this crummy T-shirt...."[/COLOR]
    Back text: "....and it weren't no Thriller."

    In hindsight (no pun intended), I am glad I never made the shirt. R.I.P Michael.

    Sorry, this is not a bomber flight jacket. A bomber jacket goes only to the waist. It is shearling however.

    I'm sure he knows that. Spoo's telling him how to list it and is suggesting the "shotgun method" for the listing title - all keywords even remotely related to what the item is so it shows up in as many search results as possible.
