From two different Domenico Vacca suits, any ideas?
I know DV has mostly been made by Attolini and Belvest, but I've never seen these. First I thought they were Borrelli, but nope. Haven't found these in this thread either.
My go-to method of classifying a suit would be to look at the button-holes and fabric. More than often, only bespoke/mtm and $4k++ RTW suits will have completely hand-sewn ones (Especially the lapel buttonhole is easy to spot). If it's some expensive fabric like 100% cashmere, it has a very nice sheen to it. Same with those ultra fine fabrics (Super 180's and up). Fit alone won't tell you much, as there are (unfortunately) lots of men walking around in mediocre fitting $8k...
Absolutely mint condition Zegna Couture suit. It's tagged 54R EU, but runs a bit slimmer and longer, so it could work as a 52 R or L too. It's in a medium/medium heavy weight "Heritage" wool, which reminds me a bit of flannel. Nice brushed wool. Roped shoulders for those that are fans of that look.
Really nice suit if you're looking for a classic looking suit for the fall.
$30 for World wide shipping from Norway w/tracking.
-Navy zegna "Heritage"...
Really nice suit from Zegna, either 2015 or 2016 model.
It's more blue than navy in color, very hard to get on camera. Think dark air force blue. Super soft trofeo fabric, and very soft shoulders...very much like my Oxxford and Kiton suits. It's been tried on once, so it's basically NWOT.
$30 World wide shipping from Norway.
-52R EU, slim cut. Could work as a 40/50 R
-Dark air force blue Trofeo fabric, looks like pindot pattern.
Two days ago, on the 10th, I made a one-time payment for last periods (May 15th - Jun 15th) invoice ($75.90), but it also included this periods (Jun 15th - Jul 15th) invoice ($60), so that my total one-time payment came to $135.
Today, I get a notification that this periods ($60) invoice is due in two days, Will I be double billed? (Through the automatic billing system)

Hi, yes, working sleeve buttons.
Also, for anyone interested, as you can see from the measurements, it's probably actually more of a Long model than Regular, even though the label states that it's a Regular drop 7 (could be that it's long since it's a 53)
Actually marked 53R, but could work as a 52R/L (the size I use). It's in a dark navy/blue tick weave Super 150's fabric. 3-roll-2 single breasted, dual vents. Medium padded shoulders (Not too different from Zegna milano). Single pleat trousers which I've had slimmed down, and removed lining from.
Shipping would be $30 bucks from Norway (with tracking), or $20 if you're located in EU.
