Hello Boys, I was going through some old books and came across Steve Brnikman's book from 2003. It was like a blast in the past and made me think of this forum and the time I spent here. While I am not sure if many of the same posters/lurkers from 2002-4 are still around - nor do I think that I made a substantive enough contribution to be remembered, I wanted to say hello to anyone who is around from back in the day. Of course, hello to those of you who have joined...
I think we are all speaking of the same items. John, can you point me to the article that states they are made by someone other than the Isaia company. I remember reading a trade article that stated differently. Also at the same time there were some other Style Forum old timers who were a bit disappointed by the development of fused lines by both Isaia and Barbera.
I believe that the Gianluca line is a company line of Isaia. I am sure there are more, but here are the Isaia lines that I am aware of: Enrico Isaia - Blue Tag not pictured. Gianluca Isaia - Black Tag Above Gianluca Napoli - Blue Tag Above
In terms of quality, I think that the Gianluca items are pretty well made. They are clearly a step down from the Isaia line, and are fused which is a problem for most of us here. But of all of the fused pieces our there, the Gianluca stuff are some of the best.
"Wow, Andrew... Talk about a blast from the past. I can't remember seeing you post since around the time I was lurking and finally signed on here several years. You must have felt a disturbance in the force, eh?" I am surprised that anyone remembered me, it has been awhile. I did sense a disturbance... Something about Sartorio being a lower level line. I have suits by Kiton, Attolini and Sartorio. Construction wise I can't see any differences. But I am a bit...
I have a couple of Sartorio pieces, and find them to be of excellent quality. You would have to be very skilled to tell the differences between Kiton and Sartorio. If you ever see a piece that catches your eye, I would recommend buying it.
Well, I know that I have been gone for quite a while but this morning my wife told me about a dream she had last night. I knew that you guys could appreciate this, so I had to return for this posting. (though none of my bookmarks work anymore) Here is the dream: My wife was shopping a local men's store that was going out of business in her dream. He happened upon a table of ties. Upon inspection she realized that they were all seven-folds selling for $9.99. She bought...
Quote: Johnny, does the Sartorial line suit jacket have handstitched button holes? I checked out few sartorial line suits, as I remember, nothing really stood out that would top Canali and Zegna. I am not Johnny, but have several PZ sartorial items. They are without question a cut above Canali, Corneliani, Zegna, etc. On par with Brioni, Zegna Napoli, Isaia, etc. A bit below Attolini, Oxxford and Kiton in terms of construction. I believe it has made...
Quote: Not sure about the 3rd, I definitely agree all on of the others, in my opinion, Bush tied last night, he seemed ready to take a stance and not get so upset, but came with more arsenal to stay on the attack...however Kerry did have some great rebuttals....i think "I have a Plan" could have evened the match though. nice to see W sound a bit more informed and intelligent. Should be a good battle....how many think this will end in the courts again? ...
I will add my opinion and scorecard on all the debates. And of course since my opinion is like gospel to all my dividians, I am sure that you will all agree with me 1st Presidential Debate - Absolute Kerry ass-kicking. My Score 10-3 Vice Presidential Debate - Clear Cheney win. My Score 10-6 2nd Presidential Debate - Slight Kerry win. My Score 8-7 3rd Presidential Debate - Slight Bush win. My Score 7-5 (Bush's message was much more effective in swing states) Final Score...
