Right, my point exactly - that's Rubi - Liverano - Camps - Cifo - Huntsman - Logsdail, with the vast majority being 20-30% cheaper (Corvato, Nicolosi, Despos, etc. are all closer to $4.5-$5K). Both the Milanese and Roman Caraceni are about 4,000 euros.Unless your argument is that A&S, Caraceni, Knize, Formosa, Despos, Dege, R. Anderson etc. etc. are 'less comparable shops.'

A friend visited the Lovat mill and sent me pics of several of their stock cloths. Lo and behold, the much vaunted LL Agnelli tweed, first issued in...
As always, ignore GBR for the sake of your own sanity.Mr. Guy is a well known streetwear brand w/ limited distribution. Typically hard to find stateside. If you like the item, and it's from a well-rated seller allowing returns, go for it. You prob won't run into it again.
