    Who's a 38S?

    Didn't grab it yet because I haven't memorized (or documented on my ipod) people's sizes and general preferences, but I can go back for this Hickey Freeman. Pardon the ipod pics, but it is a bluish-gray nailhead pattern, 38S, with the pants listed as 33 (but I think they were let out). Single vent, and dated to 1990 if I recall correctly. In spite of the age, the suit seemed in very good shape, and didn't have the dry cleaning shine that so many things have. Would love to trade for a 40R suit, or for anything else of comparable value.

    Also up for trades are the Church's loafers I mentioned earlier on the bragging thread.

    i also found something cool in 38S over the weekend (NWT BB 1818 Fitzgerald SC in off-white) and would have proxied it but i don't know of anyone who's a 38S.

    Updating the 38S Hickey Freeman above (http://www.styleforum.net/t/287214/the-un-official-thrift-buy-sell-trade-want-thread/60#post_5258289). I went ahead and picked it up, so I can provide measurements. I'll return it in a few days if there's no interest. C'mon, there must be more than one 38S checking this thread!
    PTP 20.75
    Shoulders 17.5
    Sleeves 24
    29 from bottom of collar

    Pants are 38 total length (including the waistband)
    17 across the waistband.

    Single vent, pants pleated and cuffed.
    There are a couple of pictures above, here are two more:
    [​IMG]

    One of the jacket cuff. I think there was a mistake (but easily correctable) made in stitching the cuff, but it caused me to notice that the cuffs are open, and could easily be made to have working buttonholes if you're inclined. They are there, just sewn together.

    Would love to trade for another suit, but I'm a sucker for shoes, and frankly, would trade for anything nice.

    By the way, I've nearly finished the process of convincing myself that those suede loafers are going to work for me. :slayer:

    hey dudes,
    i have a pair of 10.5 D AE park avenues in dark brown that are too big for me. if you happen to have a brown or black pair in 10D (or even a 9.5D) and need a 10.5 D, let's talk.

    yeah these shoes are sweet. i have a half-dozen pairs of AE's, but the leather on the PA's is way nicer and more supple than any of the others. i'm guessing AE knows that the PA is their "CEO" shoe, so they save the best leather for them. i NEED to find a pair in my size!!! :fu:

    Is that the standard brown PA (5845)? The color looks so much richer than the ones on AE's web site.

    the inside reads:

    10 1/2 D 5655
    03906

    that number doesn't match up with any of the PA's on the AE website. i know that nordstrom sometimes gets exclusive color makeups that aren't available elsewhere (like the player's shoe in walnut calf, i think the AE website had them only in suede and not in any calfskin colors) but who knows where these originated from.

    these things appear quite new. the only weird thing is that the right shoe has an imprint on the inside of the heel that reads "PROFOOT" in reverse, i'm guessing the original owner had some sort of foot problems (maybe one leg was shorter than the other) and bought these, used some sort of insert, didnt' like the way it felt, then got rid of them after only a few wearings. there's basically no creasing in the upper, and the "Allen Edmonds" written on the inside is still 100% intact. such weird things one can find.
