    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.

    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.

    Alright, gonna list all the Oxxfords I have available in one post for reference. 5 SC's and 1 suit.


    Oxxford super 150's brown/black houndstooth SC. Unvented, fully lined/canvassed.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Shoulder-to-shoulder: 20"

    Pit-to-pit: 22"

    Chest: 21"

    Sleeves: 26'

    Length from BOC: 34"



    Oxxford super 100's houndstooth suit. Unvented, fully canvassed/lined. Pants are double pleated and cuffed.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Jacket size same as above

    Pants size: 18" waist, 32" inseam. 1.5" cuff. They're even sorta long on me(6'7") so I believe the rise is pretty high? Pant Length overall: 44.5".


    Measurements on the first two are the same as they're from the same donor.


    Oxxford super 120's black w/ magenta(or fuscia?) and faint gray glen-plaid pattern. Single vented, 2 button and fully lined/canvassed.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Oxxford super 100's glen-plaid SC. This thing looks awesome...and green haha. Single vented, 2 button and fully lined/canvassed.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Oxxford light grey POW pattern SC. Single vented, 2 button and fully lined/canvassed.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Oxxford houndstooth with a nice tan/beige check pattern SC. Single vent, two button and fully lined/canvassed.


    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Shoulders: 19"

    Pit-to-pit: 21.5"

    Sleeves: 23"

    Chest: 20.5"

    Length from bottom of collar: 30


    Those are the measurements from the bottom 4. They're all tagged SC so they're not orphans. I think I may be a moron and they all might only be half-canvassed.

    I have a very cool Gieves & Hawkes unfinished bespoke DB navy pinstripe blazer... The sleeves are cut for surgeon's cuffs but haven't been finished, so there's no button holes or buttons. It's a 42L and the unfinished sleeves are 26" now.

    Let me know if anyone wants pics

    This is too long [​IMG]

    Looking to trade gray suit for gray suit. If it were a short, it would be perfect, even with the pleats, but alas, it is not. Anyone have anything?
