I was not claiming that the coat is made 100% out of Vicuna but that the fabric used is. Furthermore, the fact that there are many Armani, Roos Bro's and other fine suits from this collection, I am under the impression that this too is a fine suite, in fact upon bringing it to a men's fine Taylor store here in the city I was given a quick brief estamit of 3k without any further information, the main goal is to find out who George Taylor is circa 1950's. Clearly a baller

Why on earth do you think it's from the 1950s? The 3 + seven digit phone # for Hong Kong started in 2000:

Judging by the lapel and the jetted pockets I'd guess early 2000s.

@Crazycarl87, since you think almost everything you've been told is unfounded crap with no "R&D," why don't you send an e-mail to Chinese Custom Tailor and ask them about what you bought?

Certainly think Fred G. Unn is correct about the telephone number being post 2000 which is the best piece of info I've got so far and I even threw him a bone wink.gif

I have a rich cousin that I may be looking to purchase to re-establish value... I am a musician/performer and am looking to increase my value and appeal. Fine clothing will soon be a hobby of mine as I'm fairly certain I'll be getting paid to look good. Which one is of interest?

You're going to buy your cousin?

 

I was talking about the jacket man.

 

 

 

Real talks though, that thing isn't the "Fine clothing" you're looking for. It will not increase your value or appeal. ( in my honest opinion)

 

@Jompso , drop some knowledge

Unfortunately, both man. They're both dated and don't look that great, construction is probably shotty too .You might get 20 dollars for the vicuna, but most people are not looking for vicuna from old chinese tailors with no recognition.

 

They're looking for that 100% Vicuna ONLY, no blends, from names they respect like Loro piana and Brioni.

I find this whole statement completely personal in perspective... And hold your word more valid than those with only 30-50 comments but still am lacking any true substance other than once again calling it "cheap Chinese goods" which there is no label for and doesn't do me any good. The world appreciates things that appreciate it, and I do my best to appreciate all things I come into contact with. I collect and find fine art, there is no reward in a Raoul Dufy if you automatically assume it's a fake. Can you read Chinese and tell me what the Libxlaid label says??
