    If it don't, get at me bro!



    Wow! Not sure on maker, but dated 1940 it should bring a few bucks on Ebay if it's in good condition. The folks at the Fedora Lounge are helpful for identifying vintage stuff.

    They don't seem to be, about standard for a 16.5, something close to 23/24 p2p. I have not measured them all, but I imagine they were all from the same donor so they should be pretty close.

    That moment when you realize that the seemingly in good condition Brooks Brothers merino v-neck sweater has a quarter-size hole. So not worth the $4.

    I found the aforementioned Brooks Brothers sweater and a Zegna shirt. The shirt fit like a tent, despite being a medium. Fake?

    Thanks, always been my problem, big neck, short arms, medium build. If I get a 16 ½ regular fit, it fits like a tent and the sleeves are 2 inches too long.

    There is a small crown emblem/symbol and it is not the Florsheim one. I'm hoping I can attach pics from my phone.

    And here they are, cleaned, polished and straight laced. Anybody? Not that it matters as I'll be keeping them for myself, but I'm still curious. :D

    Must have been some time ago, it's the same here. It's moved from one word to the next on what is acceptable. At one time, you could use the word "zurückgeblieben" to describe a person, literally it's to stay back or backwards. It's still used in an offensive manner.






    I wish! They're actually from our cart kicking friend :D

    Oh, and Eazy, did you get my PM?


    Nice on those Bonobos, wish they'd fit me!
