    TM Lewin L/S shirt. Tagged 15.5” x 33. However, I think it’s more of a 16” at the neck cause that’s what I used to wear. French cuffs. Also, very slim fit as it is 19.5” in the waist area.
    [​IMG]

    Hugo Boss SC. Tagged 44R. Split vented and pretty recent. I think it may be NWOT since it still has those stickers in the content tag.

    DM,
    I've coveted some of your finds, however, I will need some help with your abbreviations. I don't make it to the SW & D section much :uhoh: I know RRL and C&J, but what about MM, CP?

    this darkmatter7 guy has pure junk, avoid trading with him at all costs!!!

    on the real though, you are going to have a tough time finding someone on the thrift B/S thread with that kinda stuff to trade, since you are the only one capabale of thrifting things like that. Just sell all your stuff on Ebay and use the profit to cop jawnz with the cash.

    edit: MMM - Marigiela, CP - Common Projects

    My first shell find(!). They are 9.5 D. I only brushed them with my horse brush and buffed them with my shine rag. I remember a post that you have to use some special polish/treatment on these.

    I'm not keeping them because 1) a little big for me and 2) not a fan of tassel loafers. However, if they fit, I could make an exception for shell :nodding: . The bad: There is the beginning of a separation from outsole one one shoes (see pix). You could shoo goo them or take them to a cobbler and have it done right. The soles have 100 or so miles left and the heels look like they were just replaced. Heels also say Made in Italy.

    Still on the lookout for a solid navy blue 40s suit. BB, HF, JPress, older JAB, Southwick, or similar. Would be especially interested if it is a sack suit.

    BB SC. Unlined in the back. Single vented. Minimal padding in the shoulders. Pick stitching. I think it has MOP buttons. Tagged 43L, but I think it's more like a 42L. 32" bottom of collar to end of coat. I used to think this was some kind of cotton blend, but it may be linen. Looks a lot like this one:

    http://www.thriftin.com/product/new-398-brooks-brothers-linen-blue-sport-coat-42r

    The size tag looks a lot like the one in the listing above. However, the lining on mine is different. This is a great spring/summer SC.

    I would jump on this $h1t like a sack of randy monkeys --- except that I recently acquired a very similar sc. Dangit! I think this one would fit me better, too! Must... resist....

    So, I'm pretty much forced to sell shit. I'll be having a keep-my-dumb-ass-out-of-jail sale starting right now! No prices on the product? Offer up...the worst I can say is no and chances are I won't say no. If you want more pictures just ask...my camera kinda sucks, tho. These are for SALE OR TRADE. My want-list and sizes are in my signature, thank you.


    SC's/Suits

    Canali SC. Tagged EU56R, double-vented. Small hole on the upper right hand side(can be seen in picture) but it's extreeeeeeemely small. Beautiful blue check pattern.


    [​IMG]

    Oxxford blazer/SC. Single-vented, metal buttons. Tagged 44L.


    [​IMG]

    Isaia mainline pinstripe/cord type pattern but it's very cool; would definitely work as a SC. Tagged EU54L. Double-vented.


    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    H. Freeman and Sons 100% cashmere houndstooth SC. No tagged size but it's around a 40-42R. Single-vented and fully-lined.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Untagged SC. Made in Canada. Working surgeons cuffs, double-vented, fully canvassed and really nice pick-stitching on the lapel. Super 150's. Probably the nicest SC I've bought outside of a few Kiton's when I first started thrifting. Untagged size but it fits around a 38-40R/S.


    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Couple others not pictured: Armani olive-colored, double-breasted, peak lapel SC. Unvented, tho. 44R. Southwick navy nailhead SC. Single-vented. Tagged 44L. Couple blue-ish Harris Tweeds. Both single-vented and roughly the same size. 42-44R. Will get pictures of these up immediately.
