    first, that shirt is PURE SEX.

    second, i don't think the 44 is a sleeve length. from what i've read, italian shirts all come in one standard sleeve length, and it's up to the shirtmaker or whoever to adjust it to your correct length. the "44" is just "17.5" in centimetros.

    Hey all, I join Mainy and AlanC as proud KC thrifters. I've never made a true brag post but just had a fantastic haul and thought I would share!

    First:

    Thresher & Glenny bespoke (MtM?) exactly in my size. Both are double vented, slim fit, flat front pants. First is medium grey herringbone with powder-blue windowpane, second is dark grey 3-piece with medium blue pinstripes.

    Next, two Brioni double breasted unvented in my size although the waist needs to be let out a bit. First is grey pinstripe, second is navy pinstripe

    Finally, two more suits from the same guy which I can't identify. The quality is extremely high, easily on par with the Brionis but I don't recognize the tag. First is a cashmere/wool blend flannel double breasted grey with red pinstripes. Second is single breasted grey pinstripes.

    Any help with identification would be greatly appreciated!

    Good work. I guess "we are not in Kansas any more" and more like "Kansas City, here I come". Are Brionis suit or mforphans?

    All of them are suits and as far as I can tell there is no moth damage. There is a little damage to the dark grey Thresher but it should cost less than $50 to repair

    Unfortunate damage I missed in the store... The pocket is fine but the lining is ripped up.

    Shoulder to shoulder: 17"
    Back from the bottom of the collar: 30.5"
    Pit to pit: 20.5"
    Waist at top button: 19.5"
    Sleeve from the top of the shoulder: 23.25" with 1" to be let out

    Pants: uncuffed and flat front
    Waist: 18" side to side with no room to let out
    Inseam: 28" with 2.25" to be let out

    Here's the Bobby Jones. It actually fits me and I'm thinking about keeping it because I'm an outerwear addict

    Definitely correct. 44 sleeve length would be crazy long. Going to need to measure those sleeves. My guess is your looking at 36 - 37 inches unless they were altered.

    Are the CJs UK sizing?
