Found a D&G suit today (EU48). Looks legit - has the holograms. Is it a suit, or is it a tuxedo? It has velvet trim on the collar, lapel, and front pocket, plus inside the trouser pockets, but no stripe down the side of the pants. Buttons are normal, not velveted.
Snagged a couple of nice coats today (both my size):
Sartoria Correale by Isaia (apparently new.. buttons hadn't been put on the sleeves?)
And found my first pair of Church's shoes. Shame they are too small at 8 1/2. Very little wear on them, but they are made in Italy.. Trying to decide if they are pre-Prada or post. Thoughts?
My wife and I went out tonight to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Lots of fun getting gussied up and hitting the town. What was even more fun was that each of our outfits (minus jewelry) was under $40.
