  • Cotoks, I assume you're considering my request about letting me know if you pick up a size 42R Baracuta?

    • ^^^ just replied to your PM.

        • [MENTION=2422]jonATL[/MENTION] yes definitely! Although I'm looking for cash at the moment since I'm trying to start paying off my college loans. Would you be down for sales? I can also trade with you depending on what you can offer. Probably going to try and get rid of the sugar canes, the ROYs and the APC x Carhartt pair. I might try to fit myself into the IHs since they apparently stretch about an inch after the first wash.

          • I'm looking for a skinny fit in either 32/33, so if those fit the bill at all, let me know.

              90% off retail and will definitely be my go-to formal and casual shoes.

              • I found a 42L Hickey Freeman Boardroom (L-something, I'm annoyed that I have forgotten already) suit in Navy windowpane for $7.00.

                The one downside is that I'm a 42R.

                • So it doesn't fit?

                  • I don't think so. Unless the tailor can do something.

                    I suppose it's not the one downside. It's got some yellowing in the pants from stains, and it's got pleated pants. But a clean and I could otherwise deal with the pleats if I could fix the length.

                    • Domino, you've violated at least one very good rule of thrifting: Size matters (don't buy it if it doesn't fit).

                      And maybe another: If it makes you only go, "It's okay," and not, "Heck, yeah!", leave it there.

                      And yellow stains in the pants. Seriously?

                      • I didn't actually buy it. Mostly I was mentioning it in case someone else wanted me to pick it up for them. The stains I think are just general wear, not like someone piddled in it.

                        • Oh. Well, that's very different. Never mind.

                          See any Baracutas in medium or size 42, by any chance?

                          • Aside from being the jacket I've seen photos of Steve McQueen wearing, I honestly don't know that I'd be able to recognize one even if I saw it. I haven't stumbled across one as far as I know though.

                                This is Rule #1.

                                Unless you plan on flipping it, don't waste your time/money on something that doesn't fit or can't be persuaded to fit for a few dollars more.
