    Any interest in this Lauren Ralph Lauren true SC in 43R?

    I picked it up 2-3 years ago because the shoulders are phenomenal. They are padded but they slope just perfectly. However, I don't know if I lost weight or what but it fits me loose in the waist. I'm more of a 41R to 42R. Maybe a true 43R can use this. I think it's made by Jack Victor in Canada (see tag). A little lighter than navy but not much.Oh, it is 58 silk and 42%wool. Single vented. I bought it new at Lord/Taylor and it's not a thrift pickup. Whatdya think $35 + shipping?

    I'm making these Keith Highlander Shell Cordovan shoes available for trade. I got them from ReubenR in a trade (shoutout for an awesome trade!) so I wanted to make them available on here first. They are just a bit too tight for me, unfortunately. I am a 11.5D and these area a 12 AAA/A. I spent a good hour brushing them and giving them some saphir. They have a good patina and are built like tanks. Very similar to older Florsheim Imperials. V-cleat. Heavy. Thick, sturdy sole.

    Heels need to be replaced. Soles have a decent amount of life left--no soft spots.

    Two small flaws on the back heel. On the top, the leather is split, but it is not cracking down the back of the upper. I can provide a clearer picture. Lower down, there is a small puncture (?). It doesn't go all the way through, and you can get a good idea about it's size by looking at it in comparison to the stitching.

    Open to reasonable offers.

    They'd probably work well for a 10.5D-C, too. I'm split right down the middle with 10-10.5 and C-D, and they were just a touch wide. Long in the toe, obviously, but shape was pretty good. I probably would have kept and worn them if I didn't already have 4 pairs of shell longwings.

    So, it's with great sadness that I have to concede that my prized Zegna trofeo triple patch pocket SC doesn't fit me as well as I'd like to believe. Fits like a 42L with closed quarters. Very natural shoulders. But I need open quarters and decent waist suppression. So it's *gulp* available. Incidentally, I'm also in the market for a decent triple patch pocket navy blazer. Preferably Isaia, Kiton or something of similar cut/quality. [​IMG]

    That is like the ultimate blue blazer right there G. Too bad it wasn't a bit bigger...I'd be all over it.

    Sorry to ask again.

    Has anyone found a 46 SHORT suit? I'm still looking for one for that old man who is in need of one for his daughter's upcoming wedding. Time is ticking!

    HELP!


    A gray or any staple color would be ideal. Black could be an option. Solid or a pattern is ideal versus a striped/

    With that said, I need your help because he needs a 44/46 SHORT. Here are his measurements:

    47-48 chest
    24 sleeve
    27-28 BOC
    19.5 shoulder

    Pants
    35 waist and he's about 5'4" so I've no idea what the length would be

    I'd almost agree. Would prefer 2B, more open quarters, and 40R, but I'd agree with the sentiment. That said, more looking for forest green / darker green and/or oatmeal / darker shade SC (patch pockets) to build up my foundational wardrobe.

    Lovely SC, GMMcL.

    I've got a zegna(i think) made dunhill blazer up for grabs, apparently ive been hitting the gym too hard because the armholes are now too tight for me to wear it with a shirt. has working cuffs, patch pockets, brass buttons with Dunhill 'd', fits 40r/s.

    [​IMG]

    ideally looking for workwear stuff, especially outerwear. That or grey flannels.
