    I picked up a dozen in all colors last friday but they were all OCBD, traditional fit, that looked like they had been worn once. $3.50 each. But I'm going to list them eventually.

    On a different note, I've noticed that BB shirts ALWAYS have neck stains. Back when I was heavier, I had 6 shirts made at Men's Wearhouse and a dozen made at BB. When I stored them, all were in pristine shape. When I started this enterprise, I took them out to sell them, and all the BB shirts had yellow necks and none of the Men's Wearhouse shirts did. I applied the treatment twice and had them cleaned and maybe 3 out of the dozen came clean.

    Since then I've noticed that almost every BB shirt I see in a thrift has neck stains.

    I wonder what they do in their fusing that makes that happen?

    That would be awesome... If it was my size! I seem to recall you asking about the brand too. I stumbled across some things by them in the Sierra Trading Post catalog today. Seems to be a reputable maker.

    - Solid White Dress shirt with spread collar and button cuffs - Brooks brothers slim fit or extra slim fit or something comparable (PRL custom fit, Thomas Pink Slim Fit) in a 15.5 with 34 (ish) sleeves, needs to be minty!
    - Black oxfords - Derby or Balmoral, Captoe or non. Something like AE Park Ave or Leeds would be perfect - shell is a bonus. 9E or 9.5 D (or E depending on the last)

    I'm looking for a black tie outfit. Doesn't have to be anything excellent in quality, just something better than what I'd rent. I need a ~46L jacket ~40x30 pants and 18.5 shirt. Let me know what you have fairly soon. Thanks!

    Looking for staple 38R suits with flat front pants and shoulders <18". Also prefer single breasted and decent quality. I've got a lot to trade but can work out cash as well.

    Thanks for your consideration.
