    I found this blazer with Brioni buttons the other day. There are no other telltale Brioni signs and since it doesn't fit (p2p is about 20, sleeves are probably 23/24) I would be happy to make it available for cost ($25 shipped). It's still a nice coat, and I hope for your sake that it is Briioni, but I make no promises that it is.

    Also, the below shirts are available for $15 shipped each (or less if I can combine shipping):

    Carroll & Co Check (15.5):

    Hammer: what's "the big guys" mean? And be sure to picture the label. The older Flussers are better.

    I've decided I'm in need of cowl neck sweaters, preferably in a button up cardigan and in navy or light brown/beige, wool or cashmere. Could go for a straight button up cardi, but less preferred. Size lg or 22ish pit.

    Seems to be a lot of love for ZZegna at the main thrift thread. So, I'm posting this orphan that I've had a while. Definitely a 40R. Charcoal and solid so you can pull it off as a SC. Not as shiny (no pun) as the flash makes it out to be. Made in Mexico, I think.

    Measurements can be found on my profile. I'm relatively open to trade offers, I am much more interested in Mens clothing than SW&D. Hit me with whatever you think is a fair trade! worst I can say is no thanks.

    Can someone trade me a ~39 S navy blazer. Traditional is fine, but I think I'm really looking for something with MOP buttons.

    Oh yeah, I got this from yossi, but it's not going to work without more tailoring than I want to give it. Anyone? Cash or awesome trade.

    If anyone is interested in any of the pictured below before the majority of it hits eBay tonight, let me know. Not interested in trades so much unless you have some wonderful items in my size, but the items will be available for less than I will be trying to receive for them on eBay.

    Still on the hunt for a navy sports coat: 40R, Chest: 20", BOC: 30", Shoulders: 18" and Sleeves: 25".

    Must have:
    • notch lapels
    • 2 buttons
    • traditional button stance and gorge
    • patch pockets
    • horn or MOP buttons (no metallic ones)
    • fabric not linen or polyester

    The nearest I found was Ermenegildo Zegna, full-canvas for almost $600 on eBay. Lovely jacket but I don't require full-canvass, and girlfriend thought a little too formal /sigh.

    Retail in London has been a complete bust. Online not much better - save for Malford of London. Alas, sizing on 40R has stopped me pulling the trigger several times.

    If I could compromise on patch pockets, I'd have a ton of options. As it is, pockets must be patch.

    The search continues ...

    No, 6 ft. However, not keen on relatively high button position on a lot of suits / sports coats. So, traditional button position and gorge, as opposed to what appears to be in vogue.

    Now I've switched to my Macbook, I can embed images to demonstrate what I am looking for:
    Gieves & Hawkes - Malford of London - with patch pockets as opposed to flap.

    This is a classic example of remember your audience. When you talk to this crowd, who sift through stuff older than we are on a daily basis, "low gorge" means this:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/LOVELY-vint...SA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item4ac1559fb1

    The gorge here points to the armpit, not the shoulder. You want it pointing to the shoulder. And you want the gorge position at the clavicle, not above it, as in some Attolini and other more continental pieces, nor below it as in this Oxxford piece. I'd call what you want "classic", not low..

    Your criteria are quite specific, which is good in the sense we'll know what you want when we find it. But bad in the sense that it's fairly unlikely any of us will find all elements on the checklist in one single item (since we're buying secondhand, and not at stores that stock multiple variants of similar items). I, for one, will look, as I'm sure we all will. But in the interim, I would recommend continuing with your ebay searches. You can save searches once you design them. I'd do search "blazer patch (horn or mop) 40" in men's clothing. If the parenthetical doesn't register in Ebay's crappy search function, then break it into two searches, save both and have them emailed to you daily. I'd also recommend adding searches for "oxxford blazer" and " J Press blazer", each in men's clothing, blazers and sport coats. Each makes excellent clothes (though Oxxford is generally more handmade, and therefore technically better quality) and are trad enough that you might begin to hit your wish list. J Press commands some ebay value, while Oxxford are significantly undervalued on Ebay. Then be prepared to pay when your item comes up, because it will be months if not years before you see it again.

    You should also try AskAndy's trad forum. Don't recall the link, but there is a similar thread to this one over there. And several others at other websites.

    Be sure to update us if you find something, because I don't want to find that one perfect item only to have you say "thanks, but I'm all set" and I'm stuck holding something I can't use, trade or sell.
