    Hey JC, those are some nice looking shoes.


    I am thinking of getting shell for my next pair of shoes. How much did those set you back? I was eyeing the strands in brown shell this past AE sale. But the month of January and by dalton purchase has sapped me dry.

      @mystix well I got them used from another thrifter on SF and I got a fantastic price... $150 + $10 shipping + $10 for the shoe trees


      They're these Cambridge in burgundy:

        Yea i saw the posting but he erased the price. That is a VERY nice price, its a good thing we are a different shoe size or I will be the most jealous person ever!

          Yeah, definitely a sweet deal... Fortunately I figured out my size in the AE 5 last and they fit just right

            Today was my first time going to a thrift store(2 Goodwill's). I found a Navy Wool Polo University Club jacket. My friend said they go for upwards of 100 so I nabbed it for $8. Now I don't wear this stuff but I thought it was fun to have because of the fit(waist is a bit suppressed and sleeves are perfect length). How do I wear these though?

            Mine is the same except the pockets are ginormous; I can fit my hands in them and the distance from the tip of my middle finger to my wrist is over 9".


            Question: how has been your guys' luck of finding full on suits that fit and you've bought for yourself?


            @Jason or others: I would like to post a bounty on a grey or lighter charcoal suit in 42L & 36x42 pants. I actually wear 34-35 but that's after my mom alters it. I have an athletic body so a suppressed waist is nice(as long as I have good base when I bring it to a tailor)

              @Fedodo: what size is the suit you posted on page 24(Pinstripe Armani)?I'm looking for suits; slim(er) lapels if you please.


              @JC: still have the "staple grey 42L Hickey Freeman"?

                @forbritisheyesonly, see the other thread... it's up on eBay


                What are you looking for? Just suits? Size 42L?

                  Now that you mention it...I do like this:


                  http://www.ratioclothing.com/p-38-bold-blue-stripe-end-on-end.aspx


                  but with white as the main color instead and some kind of darker color, such as blue or black for the stripes(stripes should be spaced far apart though). If you do find one, I would definitely a appreciate you letting me know. I wear a 16.5 34/35. Need very slim fit(just not too tight across chest).


                  If you spot ties like this:

                  I will love you, JC. The pattern is key cause the dots are perfectly spaced.


                  I measure 48" across the shoulders and 36 where I wear my pants(I thought I wear 42L 0.o).

                    In all my travels today, I only picked up one thing. This BB 39 R will fit me, but if anyone needs it more than I do, have at it.

                      @jonATL: How much are you asking for that BB suit? Also, what length are the pants?

                      Comment




                        Alan:


                        Length is probably 31 or 32 and has a little extra room from the cuff.


                        I just tried it on in the comfort of my own room, and it's too long (which I should have suspected), so it's destined for one of you or ebay.


                        Fun fact: I spent a while searching for the pants for these and eventually found them in with the ladies' goods.

                          When you say "too long", what part? And how much are you looking to get for it? I'm typically a 40R, but I'm expecting this jacket isn't particularly trim.

                          Comment




                            The jacket is too long for me because I'm a short. I was thinking about having someone cut it up a bit, but I don't know how much that would cost.


                            I'm usually a 40S and this fits me in the chest fine.


                            I really don't know on the price. There's nothing really comparable on ebay, but someone sold a black one of these in 45L on SF that was a bit beat up for $75. This one is pretty mint. Shall we haggle over email? jonhross at gmail dot com

                              Well, it was really just missing a button, so it wasn't in bad shape at all. Here's the link to that post: http://www.styleforum.net/t/124153/brooks-brothers-45l-worsted-wool-solid-black-suit-75


                              (I don't want that much, but I'll let you make an offer)
