Monogram added. Shirtmaven and Mack, thanks for your input.
I came into a batch of these Truzzi/Gianni Campagna light blue dress shirts, all new without tags. Wondering what those of you who have some experience with this brand can make of my shirts. There is no size label, no material content label, no made in italy label, no cleaning instruction label either. There is also the sewed in collar stay. The initial ROP on the front of the shirt. The seller didn't have much information except to say the initials were a clothing shop,...
Perhaps next time you may want to look into using RAVE Fabricare in Scotsdale, Arizona. They take shipping orders now. After a local cleaner ruined my wool/cotton Brioni suit, I have been using RAVE, which is also recommended by the gentleman who runs the blog asuitablewardrobe. I've already have used them on my bespoke suits. They also do reweaving. In anycase RAVE offers some very informative information on dry cleaning process too on their website, which you might also...
P. M. sent.
Clifford Model in Last 337 U.K. size 10. Been looking for one for a while and finally snagged one preowned.
Art and Gary Thompson at Optimo are two of our country's few remaining hatmakers and not only artists at what they make but gentleman professionals to boot. I am lucky to own two preowned lids from each and have had them downsize them with good luck. Some here should pick these fedoras up. The prices for new ones keep going up. Some say the vintage rtw felt fedoras from before 1960's are great but Art's and Gary's handcrafted lids use nice materials too. Just ask another...
I have a peacoat in olive color though a bit more greener shade to it than your sport coat and I paired it with burgundy corduroy and also one in dark blue. I've also tried wearing it with a medium shade gray trousers as well and it works for me. Wore light blue shirt with all three trousers too.
P.M. sent for Finamore knitted hat.
If an eBay item is on my wish list, I pull out my reserves and join in the bidding war. Happened to me last year when preowned not in the best condition John Lobb Jermyn II's (a forum member called it one of most sublime rtw shoe) in brown in popular UK 10 size with starting bid of 99 cents was on my watch list. It's a shoe I don't see often in this size and starting bid and after I factor in what it would cost to recraft it with new soles and cleaning the uppers I go in...
Perhaps some forum member can still make use of these two cardigan sweaters; someone in colder and longer lasting colder climate. The top sweater is Ferragamo Salvatore made in Italy in 100% camel hair and size label says Small but fits more like a Medium. The other is a Donegal Bay made in Ireland in 100% wool and size label says 40. Both fit like a Medium or U.S. size 40 and in good condition. No holes, stains. The Donegal Bay has one mismatched button at the very bottom...
