    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If they are nearly new or shell cordovan, I will pick them up. Other than, that I do not bother, and especially wouldn't in Canada unless you are trading with other Canadians due to high international shipping costs.

    Sportcoat or orphan? It's a sportcoat because of the patch pockets, right?

    BB wash and wear.

    And this is probably a 3-2 buttoned as a hard 3, right?

    Patch pockets alone don't make a blazer, but that one looks it to me! I'd also agree that it's actually a 2 roll 3, the creases imply it and it looks strange buttoned like that.

    It could be a suit jacket, as Brian and Hans have said, but it is sufficiently blazer-like to be worn as one, and especially since it's wash-n-wear it falls under this category (http://dieworkwear.com/post/45350167430/the-under-appreciated-cotton-suit) "They can also be more easily broken up into separates. A cotton jacket can be worn on its own without anyone ever having to think you’ve just come from the office, and the trousers can be used as chinos."

    First Pink fit!

    And a lesson learned. I almost didn't try this on as it said 16/34 and I am a 15 1/2 but fits perfectly!

    French cuffs too which I quite like.

    Sorry for the multiple posts but I had a question about this:


    [​IMG]

    This shirt is made of some crazy heavy cotton. Almost like denim. It's a small so it's available but are you guys familiar with this cloth or style? New one to me.

    Thanks for the responses. It should fit me pretty well, so I hope a successful SNIPE is in my future.

    Odd haul from today. Picked up some stuff I normally wouldn't and probably some stuff I should have left behind...

    All available

    From top left (very top is a Levis shirt, I know nothing about denim but it's super comfortable.)

    PBRL 17 1/2 - 35
    Eton 15 1/2 - 39 (heads up, no way the neck is 15 1/2 that's my size and I couldn't even do the button)
    PBRL casual small, heavy cotton, denim? I wish I knew
    RL - The Big Oxford XL
    BB 346 Lambswool M
    Aquascutum Wool/Cashmere M

    Dang.... Cap'n and Grendel are closing in on me..... :uhoh:
    Wow! Haha. You know, I'd probably still rock them if not for the fact that I haven't been a 32" waist in years. Pretty steady at 36.
    Nice! :slayer: Any extra funds from eBay selling that I get usually finds it's way into funding one of two things:

    ^^ When we moved a few years back, I sold about 3000 LPs. Stuff I have no idea how I ended up with and a lot of duplicates. This is pretty much what's left consisting of stuff I actually listen to. Slowly filling gaps in the collection now.

    I vote SC.
    Heavy cotton? Those looks like to be from the 90's or so. I'm thinking plastic buttons?
