Vintage needlepoint belt - geometric pattern with yellows, greens, blues, purples - black leather and silver trim. Measures 42" long from end of leather buckle tab, 37 1/4" from middle hole to end of leather buckle tab. 1 1/4" wide. Probably good for w waist size 34-38? A cobbler could shorten it and add new fittings if you want a cleaner look. Leather and buckle shows wear but needlepoint is nice and clean with no stains. $25 shipped to US, A LITTLE MORE FOR OVERSEAS. PP FF or other pay is fine.

The temperature has almost moved up to 30 degrees (finally), which makes me think that spring may actually arrive one day.

I've been seeking a must-iron, blue/white, Bengal/Butcher stripe shirt with a good button-down collar for some time. Some examples of what I'm seeking are below.

Would anyone happen to have one they'd like to liquidate? If so, please PM me. I wear 16.5-33/34, slim fit, in must-iron shirts. Thanks.

^Forgive me, Noble, for glomming on to your post, but I have a Corbin VERY similar to the above in a different size (~38s). I've been trying to convince myself for a while now that it's not too short for me, but it is. I'll take the above post as a sign and put it up for sale now.

I'll post measurements and pics later tonight. Asking price will be the same as Noble's.

Okay, so "VERY" similar wasn't exactly right--mine is flannel, 2-button, and the shoulders are lightly padded--but it's still an excellent navy Corbin! The top of the vent liner "needs" (strong word) to be resewn, but that's about as minor as it gets.

$65 CONUS or offer

O'Connell's Lucas Chelf camel hair sack jacket

Alternating light and dark brown herringbone with windowpane overlay
Undarted 3/2 sack
Tailored in USA, fully lined, 3 buttons on the sleeves
Great condition - only flaw I see is a single pulled stitch on the lower part of the left sleeve (see closeup pic with pencil pointing to it)
Very soft and luxurious, I would never sell this if it even remotely fit me
No tagged size

Brooks Brothers navy camel hair sack blazer

This is an ebay purchase that was grossly mismeasured, but a navy camel hair sack is a bit of a trad rarity so I would rather pass it along here at my cost instead of returning it
3/2 sack, made in the USA, fully lined, classic Brooks 2 dark blue buttons on the sleeves
Heavy and very soft, this would be a great winter blazer
Great condition - while it has clearly been worn I can't find any holes or wear spots, which (in my experience) is uncommon in old camel hair jackets
Only issue I see is the stitching at the top inside of the vent is starting to let loose - this is not detectable when worn and could easily be repaired or left alone

shoulder: 19
chest: 23
sleeves: 24 + 2 (but I would never recommend lengthening any used camel jacket's sleeves!)
length BOC: 30.5

Barbour cords

Golden khaki color
Yes, they are pleated but they are British so that's just the way it is
tagged size 36 - unfinished
these appear unworn and have a dry cleaning tag attached
No issues except that there is matting on the waist where the hanger was clamped on, but I assume this would come out when washed

waist: 38
length: 36 unfinished

I never know the right place to put things like this so I will try here as I hate putting in a new thread.

Two shopgoodwill auctions ending today, C&J and Kiton:
This has been said before, but I would be extremely cautious bidding on clothing from For one thing, it is rarely a bargain--stuff like that blazer almost always sells for what it would cost on eBay. Secondly, there are no returns. If it has a moth nibble or doesn't fit, tough luck, which is not the case on eBay if an item has undisclosed issues. Thirdly, measurements are often suspect.

You are relying on people who work in thrift stores to measure and make sure that there are zero flaws. I would never trust the people who work in thrift stores around here to do that. Shoes are different, presuming the photos are good. Same thing with some hats (I got a great deal on a Filson shearling hat from and a few other things. But it really is caveat emptor when that great Hermes tie you paid just $40 for shows up and it turns out that someone ironed it.

The jackets in this post are from my own personal collection. After years of accumulation, I have reached the point where it's time for me to pass along those things that don't fit me as well as they should. Many were acquired here, and everything listed was dry cleaned before going into my closet so they are all in great condition and ready to go.

Brooks Brothers hopsack 3/2 blazer
The gold standard in the trad universe: a Brooks 3/2 hopsack blazer with 3 patch pockets
Classic "gates" Brooks 2 buttons on each sleeve
half lined and made in the USA
I used this as my "travel blazer" for years because wrinkles just fall out of it. I have worn it on planes, packed it in suitcases, tossed it in the back seat of the car - it just looks great no matter what. But the shoulders are just a touch too big so it's time to pass it along to someone else to enjoy.
Despite the mileage I have put on it, it is in great condition. The only potential issue is the tape on one of the inside seams is a little loose. I'm not even sure this is an issue, but that is all I can find.
