Currently For Sale:


NWT Suitsupply Velvet Smoking Jacket, 38R – $165 (MSRP $400)

A great piece from Suitsupply that is unworn, just hanging in my closet. Shawl lapels, half lined, single vent, made with a 63% cotton/37% linen blend that feels like velvet (I can’t really tell there’s linen in it). Fits like a true-to-size 38R. Wish I had more opportunity to wear it, but I’m sure someone else will rock this hard.

  • Chest: 41.5″
  • Shoulder: 17.7″
  • Length from BOC: 29.5″
  • Sleeve: 34″

Alden Unlined Loafer 6244F, Sand Suede, 7.5E US – $270 (MSRP $549)

These are great shoes, they just don’t fit me quite right. They’ve been worn less than 12 times. I’m sure you’ve seen this style all over the internet on bloggers’ feet, but in case you don’t know the details, here they are: unlined, CF Stead suede uppers, flex leather sole, Van last. These are first-quality Aldens, bought new.

The Van last is similar to the Barrie in terms of fit. Most size down 1/2 from their Brannock size.

Epaulet GAT Sneakers, 9D US – $100 (MSRP $225)

Great sneakers, just another sizing mistake. These fit like a TTS 9D. Made in Portugal, classic German Army trainer style and color. Epaulet has discontinued this style, so this is the only way to get this classic style at this price. White leather with gray suede. I wore them less than ten times total.

NIB Carmina x Massdrop semi-brogue oxford, size 9.5D US / 8.5 UK – $350 (MSRP $525)

These are the result of one of my final projects at Massdrop – being sold here brand new, only coming out of the box for these photos. They are on the rain last, which I find to fit true to size (so these would be good for a 9.5D US foot). Perfect shade of medium brown, hard-wearing JR oak-bark soles, and even lasted cedar shoe trees. These shoes will never be made again, so the only way to get them would be to go through Carmina’s custom program, which would be around $700. You can read more and see more photos here. They are marked ‘EE’ but fit normal width (although the Rain last is more accommodating to slightly wide feet).

J. Fitzpatrick Magnolia, size 9D US / 8 UK – $100 (MSRP $400)

These are J. Fitzpatrick’s top-selling shoe, and for good reason. It’s a classic oxford style made with wonderful dark brown leather. These fit very true to size, in my opinion, so great for a 9D US foot. There are signs of wear but they have tons of life in them and will look great after a shine. Priced to move.

Unworn Founders Footwear Sand Suede Bowtie Loafer, size 8.5 US – $70 (MSRP $298)

A nice pair of shoes that I never got around to wearing. Made in Italy, blake-rapid stitch welted. Shoe trees not included, sorry. Priced to move.

3Sixteen SL-100x Jeans, size 30 – $90 (MSRP $220)

One of the most celebrated pairs of raw denim on the market. Made in SF (a block from my apartment) out of Japanese denim woven expressly for 3Sixteen. Medium rise, slim-straight leg. These have been soaked right after they were purchased and worn maybe a dozen times. Very faint fades around waistband and top block. Ready to be broken in for good. I’d say these fit true to size – best for a someone who wears a 30 most of the time, or maybe someone who’s between a 30 and 31.

  • Waist: 33″
  • Inseam: 31″
  • Front Rise: 11″
  • Leg opening @ hem: 7.75″



Satchel & Page Leather Cafe Racer, size Small – $200 (MSRP $525)

This is an early production sample of their current cafe racer (exact same product). Made with hearty calf leather in a perfect mid-brown. Made in Turkey. Hardly worn – I love this piece, but my monkey arms are just a bit too long for it. I’d say this is a pretty true-to-size small – best for a size 36-38 chest, 5’8″ to 5’10” ish. This is a very good deal on a great leather jacket – priced to move.

  • Chest: 20″ across
  • Shoulder: 17.5″ across back
  • Length from BOC: 23.75″
  • Sleeve from shoulder seam: 24″
