Just a couple of years ago, I found some (not my size) in Italy for 700 euros, with a sterling buckle. If I recall, you could get a steel buckle version for 400 euros or so.
That said, I don't feel like I overpaid Jay. It's truly a unique item in the U.S.
That sucks. Do you have any idea how it could have gotten lost? Should SFers be scouring the NYC Goodwills?

Has anyone seen these at Marshalls? Does Fabio Ferretti make a Tubo?
