PM sent Deets Please
plain toe pebble grain bluchers 11.5-12
I've been offered a decent (by retail standards) deal on 3 NWOT Jack Spade messenger bags by someone who, I believe, works for the company. Not something I need, and a bit pricey at $100 each. If anyone wants a proxy, let me know.
Pics or links of the model being offered?
Few items for trade or purchase.
So, awhile back, the coolest of all cool dudes, GuitarPreacher (to whom ALL positive trade karma should be given) gave me an amazingly killer deal on some Alden shell longwings (like, AMAZINGLY killer: http://www.styleforum.net/t/9006/th...ount-store-bragging-thread/43575#post_5628915). I tried, oh so desperately, to make them work for a long time, but I just have to concede that they're too big for me. The problem is, they filled a very specific hole in my closet that will again go unfilled if I give them up, so my trade request is super specific. I'm only looking for:
1) Good (Alden, AE caliber)
2) Shells (a must...I only own one pair of shell and I love them/NEED another pair)
3) Brown or burgundy/color #8
4) Wingtips (I have some wiggle room here if someone has a killer pair of shell PTBs or oxfords, I *may* go for it)
5) in sizes 11.5-12.5D (obviously will depend on the maker)
I know it's a super specific request, but I really want to replace these shoes. I also won't sell them - I have a strict personal rule against selling anything for profit that I purchased discounted from someone else, so please no sale offers. I'll consider other awesome shoes for trade (and to a much lesser extent, tailored stuff), but would really REALLY like to replace these with another pair of shells. I know it's a shot in the dark, but figured I'd give it a try.
There's a little bit of damage to the top of the lining in the back of the shoe as you can see in the pics, but it should be hidden by pants most of the time when worn.
I am looking for a navy 44L suit with 36W 34L pants. I'm requiring my groomsmen to wear navy suits and one of them doesn't have one already.
Here's the measurements he took off his existing jacket:
Jacket Length: 32.5"
navy pinstripe count?
I'm looking for a light grey suit, size 40.
Consider this an interest check for a vintage 1950's Clicker coat in near-perfect condition. Rather than dealing with eBay, I wanted to see if a vintage enthusiast or Lakeland jacket fan would be interested in it for what I'd consider a fair price (ie less than the best/quick sale price people settle for on eBay). If so, please PM.
I bought this some time ago from TweedyDon, but unfortunately it's a little small for me. I hope he does not mind me using his description and pictures, as they are much better than anything I would do:
This is a lovely suit, that would be ideal for a chap starting out--or as an everyday go-to suit! Cut in a contemporary (but NOT fashion forward) style of subtle darting and two button closure, this suit is almost but not a dark grey glen plaid, being a crosshatch pattern with a lovely subtle overchck of dark red and dark blue. If this was a 40L, it wouldn't be here! This is half-canvassed, fully lined, and has a single center vent. It was made in the USA. The trousers are pleated and uncuffed. It is in absolutely excellent condition, and a steal at just $45, or offer.
Tagged 40R, this measures:
Chest: 20 1/2
Sleeve: 25 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/4
Length: 30 1/2
Waist (flat): 15
Inseam: 29 + 2
I am asking $35, shipped CONUS.
If anyone wants to trade for the 39 R S Saint Andrews suits/sportcoat in my signature, let me know.
I'm looking for things in a 39 S (the shoulders on the blazer are just a tad bit wide for me, and it could be a hair shorter).
Looking for 12e Alden's or Allen Edmonds in either browns or shades of burgundy - all set with black shoes as I have one very nice pair already. Mainly looking for blucher, longwing, or plain toe but I'll give a look at anything anyone is selling in this size.
Also expanding my sports coat collection and I am a 40R, sometimes 40L depending on the maker. Mostly looking to add some glen plaid and gun club patterns at this point but I also need a summer weight navy blazer.
