Heads up gents:

 

Robinson's Shoes in Ireland are having a significant sale of their Irish brogues.

 

I bought a pair earlier in the year and they are superb. Highly recommended, and an absolute bargain.

Yes, $400 BIN, but most of this dude's stuff sells with just 1 bid, so...$300 - but I'll edit to make you happy. smile.gif

Can anyone comment on how the Macons fit? The last looks pretty narrow in those pics.

i would say they are a "c" width. leather is soft though and stretches to a "d" width. thats been my experience at least

One Borrelli and two Fray Shirts. Size 16. $40 BIN or best offer. (Note the short sleeve length -- probably about 32", given the shoulder measurement.)

This is an amazing deal and very rare find.

42R NWT Navy double breasted suit by Corneliani's Linea Sartoria line. This is Corneliani's handmade line (i.e. RLPL, Brioni level of quality).

...

That seller has very nice items regularly.

However, that suit isn't anywhere near Brioni/Isaia level of quality. Hard to tell exactly from the pictures, but there's no evidence of handwork and all the buttonholes are done by machine. From the tags and cut I would say it's slightly older, fully canvassed, padded shoulders. Still a very nice suit in a classic navy DB - but don't want someone to buy it expecting something it isn't.

Thanks for the clarification. I know Linea Sartoria starts at the 3-4k range, so maybe Isaia level of quality?

Speaking about this suit specifically, the quality looks to be ~ Corneliani / Caruso mainline. I know LS suits were forum favorites some years back (Doc IIRC), but I think that was more because they were fully canvassed and sold new on the forum ~$250-$300.

I don't believe the construction level ever approached Isaia.
