    You don't say? Although, I'm guessing the trousers are of the bell bottom variety as well?

    I was 5'8" in 9th grade. I was 144 lbs in 10th grade. By full size, I was 5'11", 165 and a 42R with tailoring necessary to take the waist into a 32.

    I'm proud to say I'm still a 42R, but I plead the 5th on the remainder of the metrics.

    This is fascinating, by the way.

    Nah, the thrift thread. Nothing vintage about RG.

    Awesome vintage hand-tailored pants from 1956, tailored in Verona, Italy. Beautiful flannel fabric, double pleats, everything hand-sewn, button-fly.

    ^ Great pants, handwork everywhere!

    I love this Vintage Burberry Polo Shirt Sweater. Tons of details, saddle shoulders and deep red buttons. The merino wool is soft and has a wonderful hand.

    Chipp cashmere jackets. The plaid is labeled 100% cashmere. The striped one doesn't have the cashmere label, but its the same fabric (maybe ever more plush). The union label on the plaid is sewn in in such a way that I can't tell whether it has the registration R or not. Both would appear to be late 50s to early 70s. The plaid is a two button sack, the stripe is a 3/2 sack. Other than the lining separating in a couple places on the plaid, they're both in excellent condition.

    If Mr. Winston is still checking the thread, perhaps he could give us a better idea on the age.
