My experience with RL's wool pants is that the Made In Italy stuff is cutter nicer and better made (construction and fabrics) than the other stuff made in Asia. I have two seemingly same pair of RL wool pants, one made in Italy and the other made in Korea from Italian fabric. The look exactly the same but when you wear them you can tell the difference in quality and cut.
Chorse, got the pocket squares, thanks. The BJ jacket is at Bhambi's having very light-brown horn buttons attached and the length raised about 1/4inch.
