    I can swing 14s depending on the maker, but that's as big as I go.

    Hardy Amies Shirt - NWOT - Size 16 (has cardboard in the collar) (Available) Though I just realized I somehow got a mark on the shirt in transit [​IMG] so will have it dry cleaned first if anyone takes it.

    I have personally had really good luck with odd-sized shoes on the 'bay.

    It seems like a lot of people with irregular sizes are accustomed to the online world anyway.

    Just my .02

    That's the plan! The Aldens are going into the care package I need to send to you.

    I've learned a lot from this thread, but still making a lot of rookie mistakes.

    I have one and it is gorgeous, but this one...

    For my money, this is the single best listing ever posted by our friend in PA. The Sawyer, the NWT Pendleton, the cashmere overcoat and I'm sure I'm forgetting something--very, very nice.

    Truth. He was kinda smashed in between a Woman Within mumu and a early 90's Josephine Chaus bright green blazer with gold buttons. :lol:
    Oh God... :drool:

    Dang, I didn't see any shoes worth picking today! Mind if I ask which GW they were at? (I'm finished thrifting for the weekend, trying to list everything picked up in the last two weeks).

    I did manage to pick up a J Press Presstige navy blazer with brass buttons and a Pendleton tweed hunting jacket with suede elbow and shoulder patches.

    Solid little run. Very sadly had to leave a Martin Greenfield chalk stripe orphan in my size (and a "Gabbana" navy orphan). Scoured the pants for their mates, but no joy. Still a few finds for myself, few for the 'Bay.

    Suit: Southwick (available)
    Tie: Made in Italy PRL knit (available)
    Shirts: Paul Stuart x2 (check n/a, solid available)
    Cardigan: J Crew (tenatively n/a)

    Does J Crew use smoked MoPs ever on something like a Made in China cardigan? I ask because these really look/feel like it, but that just seems wrong (despite the touch of cashmere, so I assume it was more expensive).

    Yeah, that's a fairly recent J. Crew piece and their newer stuff is very nice. Despite being made in China (being made in China really doesn't mean too much these days anyway), they've really stepped it up in terms of quality. Price has obviously gone up as well, though.

    No, they are both independent charity shops. The bigger one is run by a lady with a lot of contacts in the business world, and she gets some awesome stuff from personal donations. The other one, I think my luck was in. Some of the prices are a higher than the regular op shop, but who's complaining about $60 for a Brioni suit?

    Two items from today (and excuse the cell phone pics since I do not sell, so cell phone is all I got). Both of these from shops that I rarely stop at, and even more rarely buy from (in fact the pants are a first buy, and the coat is I believe only the 2nd item I've purchased from that particular shop):

    Zegna pants (ever so slightly short on me, but fit in the waist - content tag cut out) - they are an olive green IRL and fill a need. Reasonably good shape, no more worn than trousers I bought new and have worn myself:

    And by far the cooler item:
    [​IMG]


    Wellensteyn coat - this thing is heavy and almost brand new - the only thing I could find wrong with it is that one of the zippered pockets (that doesn't have a zipper end) isn't zipping properly so the zipper doesn't join when you slide it up and down. *shrug* I'll just use one of the gazillion other pockets. It seems like if I knew what I was doing I could get it to go back together. I'd never heard of this brand before (so any thoughts from the collective are appreciated), but the coat was in such good shape and was so fricking heavy that for $10 I figured worth a shot. For a better pic since it is still available retail : http://www.wellensteyn-usa.com/JAGURO-at-Wellensteyn-USA-PID8317-JAG62.aspx

    If anyone finds any ruined Balmain biker jeans (unwearable), I'll buy them for the zippers.

    Please note me, since I'm not often prowling this thread.
