For the long and narrow footed. V-Cleat brown/burgundy pebble Florsheim Imperial longwing.

Not mine, though they would be if I had a thinner foot. Cheap!

Not available to the United Kingdom.  I'm seeing this more and more on Ebay USA.  They're unwilling to send movies, too, it seems.  Do they dislike us so much or is it just that they can't be bothered to get the item weighed?

I think it's due to a pretty significant increase in USPS shipping fees...

Possibly, but their fees are all over the place.  No logic at all.

I find that if you ask them to ship outside of the US they usually agree. Maybe I have just been fortunate.

Ditto, few people will pass up the chance of a sale, particular as ebay is quite slow these days.

What I have noticed lately is that I have been stung for Customs duty every time on parcels from the US. I am talking about second hand clothing that is just over the 18 value threshold that would slipped through a few months ago.

I suspect that HMRC staff are facing cutbacks like the rest of the public sector. The response I am seeing within central government is that people suddenly start getting very busy and conscientious to show just how valuable they are. In the case of Customs this probably means not spending so much time trying to detect small consignments of drugs but instead targetting every parcel that is liable for duty. Drug seizures don't show up in the revenue figures.

I snagged this. I was also wary of the 8" drop.  It could be an "athletic fit" size 40 or a size 39, or even a mis-measured size 38.

I'm still convinced that some American Ebayers are simply trying to take the piss.  Even they are not as bad as some of the chancers on Amazon.

I snagged this. I was also wary of the 8" drop.  It could be an "athletic fit" size 40 or a size 39, or even a mis-measured size 38.

See now, that's the fit I need. If the jackets fit me, the trousers are often too big in the waist. Say the jacket's a 40, the trousers are often a 34 and I need a 30-32 waist. I've seen some great suits on your site Zach, but the trousers are usually a 34-36. I suppose I could get them taken in at the waist - never had that done though. I've got a good seamstress - is it easy to do?

Taking in the trousers waist is a very easy and basic alteration. A good tailor will even slim down the leg accordingly if needed.  Sometimes I even do a full taper down the bottom for a narrower leg opening. Basically all trousers alterations are easy for a skilled tailor/seamless.

It is impressive that you have massed such a collection without having to get the waists altered.

Bit light on for information, but looks promising.

Someone 'small' should take a gamble and grab this before a reseller does.

Comes complete with 'slit' and 'thread material'.

Just got this.  Your wariness was warranted.  It is about 38-39 SHORT, and is more blue than gray.  Very nice herringbone fabric though.  Expect to see it the shop soon.

45 dollars for shipping.  Mad.

I have found seller to be very accommodating - many of them don't seem to know that there's a USPS flat-rate envelope for around 15 duckets
