    +1 (even if horse's_ass' original statement was about that other jacket, it works for this one, too). [​IMG]

    ^^^ LOL. I saw that same shirt in Somerville last week along with a another really nice shirt from a shop on the Island of Capri. Both were probably donated by the same guy. I passed on them because they were pretty worn out. That Caruso seemed dingy when I looked at it in the light and the material felt thin and limp from wear to me when I saw it (but that's just my opinion).

    OK. The C&C is dead.

    I did pick this guy up from a consignment shop. It's in pretty good shape and will be useful.

    There's a really nice navy/gold button blazer by sothwick that I keep assign on. always give it a second feel on the rack, it's definitely nice. I think in the 38-40 range. Can proxy if desired.

    Also, what is stratojac? Can't find much info. Saw a pretty cool trench coat.

    I've seen several cool Stratojac jackets, and also some kinda crappy ones. I don't really know much about the brand though.

    Southwick is pretty good. A step down from HF or BB in terms of flippability, but good. In quality terms I'd say a step down from HF and mid-range for BB. Better than BB 346, maybe about the same as their mainline, not as good as BBGF or BBBF.

    I thought southwick was just older HF? I'm not planning to buy unless someone here wanted it, have too much other stuff atm.

    Grendel, can you swing a 31 in bonobos?

    BP's recent photo box tutorial was very informative, but I have to say that this here is true eBay marketing. Don't forget to read the description.

    I know right? Those pics and description comments aren't exactly going to instill riotous activity on that suit.
