    +1 They protect from wear / fraying, but also add weight to help the drape of the pant. They generally are not stock from the maker, since the pants required a hem. The tailor would have added it at the time of hemming. One of the differences between an alteration and something tailored. . .

    Thanks guys, a wealth of information as always. However, I've determined the suit is a little too big for me. :brick: I did get to keep the sweet PRL suit hanger though. :D

    I either use ebay shipping tool or paypal, since I get increased discounts for top rated/power seller.


    Now that I have had an entire conversation with my favorite sandwich, I need to go to the deli down the road and eat one. I've lost 14 lbs in the last couple weeks , so I think I've earned it.

    Pebble leather bag I grabbed a few months back, no clue the make as a part of the liner had been removed and there is zero branding on the exterior.

    Picked this up today,

    Any of you shutterbugs need a leather adjustable divider camera bag?
    Toyed with the idea of having it as a travel shell cordovan shoe carrier. With plenty of rool left over for socks and overnight business trip toiletries.

    Part of haul from Saturday. SCs to come in a little while.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Size 9 D!

    [​IMG] Left Pringle golf pants light blue 17' across waist Flat front, uncuffed, should be approximately 34x34. Right Bill's in olive (how do you determine model?) 35x34 2x pleat and cuff
    [​IMG] PRL for me on the left with a salmon/orange windowpane. MiI Polo by Corneliani flat front, uncuffed. 38x32 or 34. (I don't know of anyone on here who likes Corneliani Polo, flat front and wears a 38 or 40, so these are probably going to the bay [​IMG]

    So you say to yourself, I really appreciate the Construction of Bill's but they are just too stodgy. Check these out! I couldn't not buy these, they are my size but im going to need some serious encouragement to rock them, or alternately if you buy them it is with the explicit expectation of a thrift pic.



    [​IMG]
    Ok, I need help authenticating these ties and your help (spoo) would be much appreciated. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Some Quality Polo's for you guys! [​IMG] [​IMG] Lacoste is a 5, RT is M. Both are in great shape.
    Again, these are for the more daring among us.
    [​IMG] Bullock and Jones S, Gitman Bros M.
    Everything avaliable except for the PRL windowpane trousers, and the Bills Paisley if no one wants them, and I can be talked into wearing them...
