    I've updated a Flickr set with pics/sizes of things I have for trades:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157629245779503/

    Navy Caruso blazer, 54 EU
    BB Alden Shells, 10 C
    Oxxford pants
    Canali pants
    HF suit, 38S
    HF Boardroom SC 44R
    Mezlan, 9D
    Jos Bank Blazer

    I'm looking for a sweet trench in a 38-40 S, a gray suit in the same size (32-33/30 pants), wool trousers, staple blazers (I only own a navy BB) and quality slim-fit shirts in 15-32. OK. That's a lot.

    I've got lots of things up in my ebay account including lots of Hickey Freeman suits in different sizes... Also the NWT Canali Proposta SC, Hickey Freeman slacks, a few sweaters, ties, etc.

    I'm looking for the stuff in my sig

    See my sig for trades or stuff I have available. Also, my [VIDEO]http://www.ebay.com/sch/top_brand/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686[/VIDEO] ebay stuff is also available for trade.

    WANTS:
    41R(!) or 42R suits, lightweight fabrics, Italian name makers preferred NO dbl breasts. Unstructured shoulders would be a nice bonus.
    shell shoes (burgundy or black) 9 or 9.5D
    AE park avenues or Strands in black 9 D
    zanella flat front trousers (34waist)
    car length lightweight overcoat 42R NOT double breasted or peacoat
    16.5 x 33" dress shirts SLIM FIT

    Hope this thread takes off. Basically, I look at what people thrift (in the thrift thread) and I PM them. Another suggestion is for ppl to put what they want in their sigs. My stuff is kinda light right now, I just gotta get off my duff and post the stuff that's hanging outside my closet door.

    Glad to see this back up here, got some things I'll probably be getting up this weekend, but again, still looking for tweed/chino/khaki etc (basically no jeans and few wools) pants 28-30W 30L. Also driver caps, preferably linen, but I'm down for any (particularly Made in England/Scotland wool/tweeds)

    The Canali khakis I picked up could fit you with some work:

    waistband is 19 inches across (but they've been let out a little)
    length from top of waistband is 38

    These almost fit me lengthwise, so they're pretty close to a 30.

    I'm currently selling some NEW Brooks Brothers shirts here:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/287237/new-brooks-brothers-shirts#post_5192796

    and new BB ties here:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/286216/new-brooks-brothers-ties

    I'm currently in the market for a classic, solid navy blazer. My ideal is something with a more modern cut, soft shoulders, high arm holes, in about a 39S (38 to 40, depending on fit). If you have something like that, feel free to PM and make an offer on a trade for some of the shirts and/or ties.
