    Somehow I am not surprised. Honestly this is the first time someone has asked me this question, but I am not sure how people believe this measurement is going to mean anything...

    Do you have pictures of the ones that are available?


    Picked up this sweet belted rain coat by Saks house brand. It looks brand new, but does have that GW smell. Bring on the summer rain.

    I'm at home in San Francisco and I've been killing it. I'll post stuff later, but first.

    Any 44US interested in reasonably priced Battistoni and Brioni's staple blazers and one suit?

    I think it was $150 for the suit, $100 for the blazers. There's 4. Also there's a Loro Piana vest and jacket, not so reasonably priced ($160, $300).

    I'll be in the city for a half of tomorrow. If your interested I could grab them.

    Some recent finds.

    Ties:


    From left to right:
    1960s Silk Brooks Brothers (in impressive condition), mid 2000s BB, post-2010 BB, recent BOC, Massimo Bizzochi, Polo RL, Missoni (it was $1)
    [​IMG]


    Suits & SC's


    I already posted Sunday an Oxxford I found. Also found this this Daks SC. I always pass Daks, but this looks recent, is made in Britain, and is an awesome pattern. Size 44L and only available for trades or ebay.

    Paul Stuart tuxedo jacket with no pants to be found. I'm gonna check back for the pants, because I think I want to keep this.

    Lastly, this is the ONLY Austin Reed anything I've ever found worthy picking up. Its fused, but the styling is pretty awesome. It can't be more then a few years old, and seems practically unworn.

    Shirts:


    Vineyard Vines OCBD (for me), Burberry Brit, J. Crew Thomas Mason (for me). I was thinking I would keep the Burberry Brit for myself, until I realized how retarded the mini button-down collar looks. The J. Crew Thomas Mason shirt is actually really nice...great fabric and really nice shell buttons.
    [​IMG]

    THE BEST FOR LAST. One donor - three awesome shirts [​IMG]. Net cost $11.47.


    My first Borrelli, and it did not disappoint. Hands down the nicest shirt I've ever laid hands on, and in flawless condition. Are all Borrelli's hand-made?
    [​IMG]

    I'm not usually one to pick up Behar, but this is the nicest one I've seen. Huge shell buttons, great fabric, and FC. Needs some oxy in the pits though
    [​IMG]

    Lastly, another first. Surprisingly its not as nice as the Borrelli, but still...fuck yeah.
    [​IMG]

    The three shirts are all size 15.5", 32" (why not a 34/35" [​IMG]). If you're interested in any, I'll only except trades of equally nice shirts in my size (15.5-16", 34+).

    Some thrift items, PM me if you want the dibs.

    Hickey Freeman Sport Coat, 44L, recent, double vents, fully canvassed. Came NWT I wore it once and cant find tags. Epic find NWT, now it is "nearly" NWOT. Fits true to size, a slimmer less full bodied fit quite similar to Brooks Brothers 1818 madison line.

    Ralph Lauren Polo DB Houndstooth Suit 44L, double vents, fully canvassed (you have to believe me on this one. Made in USA presumably by HF or Martin Greenfield). Suit looks modern, and when worn, has that Tom Ford lapel thing shooting out and getting near the shoulder blade. Fits true to size. Too trim for me.

    Zegna 100% cashmere jacket, 56L - 44 - 46L US. double vents.

    Paul Stuart suit, 44L. Double vents, fully canvassed, very recent. This is Klobber style, but I am short on a few BOB. 50/50 whether I keep.

    If I don't strike a deal with anyone, then I'll probably be holding on to these for a while for future barters. So if you ever find a Kiton in 16/35", you know who to talk to!
