    Guys - this is the Lanvin to look for!! Crazy find! Really fashion-forward, runway-ish stuff. This is from Spring/Summer 2011. I'm guessing retail would be $500+.

    Wow..... :slayer:

    six vintage gitman shirts. all long sleeve, either 15.5/34 or tagged medium. I am willing to let these go as a lot AT COST ($4.35 each) + shipping and $12 to cover some gas money if anybody wants these. all are straight from the cleaners.

    Amazing deal for someone. And crazy generous of Mainy!

    I could read that it sez 31, but APCs are vanity sized and I take a 28 or 29 depending on the model. I've actually been on the lookout for a pair of Rescues for some time.

    ya I saw a few on ebay but they were larger sizes, it is a really quick thing to take in pants in the waist though all it takes is a sewing machine and about 5 minutes you dont even need to cut anything

    Was fortunate enough to buy a couple of items from Spoo. Arrived. Amazing seller -- which isn't news to anyone here. Thanks much!

    Taking in the waist on jeans is quite a bit different then slacks.

    the way I do it is I just pinch together the material in the waist in a couple of places as opposed to just the center and sew it, that isn't a very good explaination but the method works well for me
