    Anyone in the market for a basic blue OCBD? Barneys house brand, made in the USA. Picked it up for a friend but it didn't fit him, so making it available here if anyone's interested. Nothing fancy, just a nice staple shirt that fits slimmer than those Brooks Brothers tents.

    P2P - 23, Collar - 15.5, Sleeve - 34

    In the spirit of this thread, it's available for cost + shipping. I'd also be interested in a trade. Currently looking for shell cordovan boots, preferably Alden. Can throw in a pair of genuine Allen Edmonds shoes as a further incentive.

    The pic referred to my post as I was tired and just couldn't type a coherent thought!

    I don't believe that I HAVE heard. Got a link? I tried googling it, to no avail. :embar:

    Unfortunately, the only visible marking is the faint logo pictured on the insole. Can't even make that out.

    I just mentioned this in a post a couple of days ago: http://www.styleforum.net/t/309281/...ips-tricks-problems-questions/30#post_5635468

    Basically, eBay.de just changed things recently. Now, I no longer receive direct bank transfers, they go to eBay. eBay releases the funds to me through PayPal rather than my bank account. I haven't determined whether they're collecting PayPal fees (or some sort of new fee) or whether it's for buyer protection/better regulation.

    I'm thinking it might be Carroll & Co.






    Or maybe one of the higher lines of Johnston & Murphy Presidential Line or Aristocrat. Old school Florsheim. Maybe Hanover?

    OOOO I know this one. Those are difinitely Hanover, made for Scott's Shoes, and independant shoe store. About 30-35 years old. I have sold a few of those.
    A little background on this pair below. I bought these from the original owner, and older gentleman who used to live here in the Hanover area. He said he purchased them new, at discount, at the Hanover Shoe Outlet downtown in the late 70's, I guess they were never sent to the Scott's location...wherever that is.

    Here is a better look at the foot bed logo.

    Hanover Soles, unfortunately heels were replaced or you would see they were the same.

    Just wondering, how do you figure this is NWOT? Only reason I ask is that I dont want you to get someone pissed if you sell/trade it and it is not NWOT? The current line of Brooks Brothers suits have basting on the shoulder, cuffs and vents along with buttons in the pocket for the tailor to sew on. If the basting is not their, I would be extremely careful calling this NWOT...just my 2 cents.

    I had to hack in through the links in my old invoices. It was longer ago than I thought, man the past 3 months has just flown by.

    I do need to be a bit more certain of that before claiming nwot. The pants are in their original, unhemmed state, and I've never seen anyone undo the hems before sending a suit to the thrift. Cursory examination at the shop didn't turn up any loose seams or other points of wear.

    I think term NWOT should be reserved for those who actually bought it NWT, ripped it off themselves, tried it on, realized they looked like a seagull and then decides to sell right after, cause even if the chest pockets are sewn shut and the basting is still there, could be worn a couple of times.

    One time I had an interview at Barclays for an "internship" (keep in mind I was a senior in high school, got the interview cause my principal used to work there). My principal let me borrow one of his suits from back in the day. Every. single. one. Had the basting, the little tag on the sleeve. I remember the one I tried it on. It was an Armani Black Label. First time touching a super nice suit and I remember it smelling funky. Maybe it was old or it dried cleaned or something. (Now I'm wondering why the dry cleaners didn't remove the bating). Went to the interview. The interviewee's suit was the same. Until I came onto styleforum, I honestly thought basting was part of the suit, like stripes or something and the sleeve tag was how you flaunted the brand (I wore a lot of Ecko back in the day).

    Anyways, it seems those guys either thought it was the style as well or they were dumb asses.

    I wouldn't be surprised, after all, it was Barclays.

    were these guys in some wealth management/financial planner office? because i know some people who work at barclays (were at lehman) and that shit wouldn't fly in their banking group.

    NWOT is my biggest pet peeve

    Based on history, it's a safe bet that PP/eBay (they are really the same) is going to either skim fees or put a hold on your funds which, presumably, would enrich PP through interest collected on frozen accounts. I can send funds electronically via my bank at no charge, but not many folks know about it or how to set it up, including myself (I just know it's possible because my banker said so when I had to wire funds to Mexico awhile back). The good news is, chinks are beginning to appear in PP's armor with the development of alternatives, such as Dwolla and what my bank has done, and attention from the mainstream press. The NYT piece is, hopefully, just the beginning, and PP within a few years will be on the dust heap of flawed-and-failed digital ventures, along with AOL and Myspace.
