    I have a Polo Western circa 1978 that wasn't worn in a 34 and hemmed at about a 32
    Only $500 for this rarity

    I have this and another one in a bluish/grey glen plaid in size 41

    Washed but never worn. Chest too snug so I'd say that these were good for someone with a 40-41" chest.

    If anyone comes across a solid navy suit that's got some life in it please shoot me a PM. My Canali that I purchased four years ago at the Saks "the sky is falling" sale is starting to finally wear out from being the only solid navy suit in my rotation until earlier this year. Need roughly a 46 jacket with 39/40 x 31 pants.

    I have lots of shirts/pants and some ties to trade. I will make it worth your while.

    I recently picked up a pair of Acedemi raw selvage jeans from another forum member. Unfortunately, they aren't going to work for me. They look like they have only been worn a couple of times, and the denim is still pretty stiff. Definitely not broken in.
    These are tagged size 34, in a straight fit. Check out the measurements...

    Waist 16.75"
    Leg Opening 8.5"
    Inseam 33"
    Thigh 10.5"

    The only issue I could find was a couple of missing rivets at the right pocket, as seen in the pictures. There is no ripping, tearing, stains, etc. The missing rivets won't hurt anything, either. If you read up on these jeans, you'll find that the rivet issue is well known. Seriously. The pocket is not going to fall off...

    I got a fair price on these, and I'm looking to pass them on. Shoot me a trade offer - anything! A nice tie! Shoe trees! Try me, I'm not looking for much. Use these to patch your super-fancy jeans, if you want. Use them for mowing the lawn. Make an ammo bag. For the price, you aren't going to find nicer denim.

    OK, dudes. Need a dark blue gingham shirt, notch or modest point collar, prefer upper end (pearly buttons, etc) and standard cuff, but will go as low as Tyrwhitt. 17 x 34/5. Gingham should be medium, not too micro not too large. Sort of like this one in CT's current catalog:
    http://www.ctshirts.com/Navy-block-gingham-check-slim-fit-shirt?q=2ksba2||FC220NBL|||||||||||||
    Have mucho stuff to trade.
    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Strongly prefer slim fit, but not a dealbreaker as I can slim it myself

    You can probably find a 15% off coupon somewhere, maybe better off just buying a new one direct from CT :)

    Yeah, that's how I got to the request. I have a $20 off coupon, but with shipping, that still brings it to $50. Too much to pay for a shirt, imho.

    They had a deal last week for shirts for $ 39.50. I bought three non- iron solid work white shirts for work. And for spending $100 you got to choose a free tie. With shipping my order was like $133.00 which I didn't think was bad. Plus love their collar stays.

    Looking for a wool/cashmere pea coat or duffle coat in gray or navy. I wear a 39s/40s, measurements are in the sig. I'm looking for a proxy plus a little extra on this one and don't want to spend a whole since winter here is a very short season and not particularly cold nor wet.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've been looking for a 38-40 S blackwatch sportcoat for a long time. Hopefully somebody has something they want to trade....


    Also on the hunt for some nice boots in an 8.5-9.

    Wes was selling a 3 button vintage blackwatch SC in that size. I was interested but the appears to be too small for me. Check it out.
