    Few pick ups from this week (please dont let my middlin finds be post # 40k.....[​IMG] )

    Shirts (T to B, L to R)

    Facconable 100% Linen, Size L- almost every button has loose threads, but otherwise VG condition- who was looking for these (linen shirts), Mexi? )
    Etro 43, prob @ 17 x 35 (available)
    J Press (My size, keeping)
    Borrelli (I think the twin to the 1 catside found,,- fits pretty well, keeping for now)

    In my personal experience even the recent lanvin ties, while nice, aren't really worth anything dollar wise

    Is anyone even going to read this, or are you all watching the counter? :tounge:

    I wasn't even going to GW today but my wife had to check for something.

    First off, a NWT PRL Classic Oxford (blue & white stripe).

    Then some sweet ivy league goodness. This baby must be over 45 years old and it's a long way from home.
    PAtch pockets, beautiful lapel and buttons and single vent. Nothing in it but the H. Freeman & Son tags.

    Measurements:
    Chest: 23"
    Shoulders: 18.25"
    Sleeves: 26.5"
    Length: 32.25"

    Only blemish is an ancient ink mark on near left shoulder blade.

    Available to someone who'd give it a good home and party like it's 1959.

    ^ That's how you do 40000!

    RE: Gant Rugger. I've found some old Gant Rugger stuff that didn't seem especially nice. I think it's just the more current Rugger, designed by Christopher Bastin, that's desired.

    I know you were never really gone DM7, but welcome back anyways. There were 27 of us on at the time of 40K, and I was hoping someone would step up with something worthy!
