Looking for advice regarding selling my Brioni Overcoat. Guide price and recommended auctioneer markets? Or style forum members? Not sure if viewing is recommended when details and quality are so widely known, and necessary details in label? Advice welcome and appreciated. Including some pictures here after...

Uh the english is right next to the italian. but anyway

Fabric: the code of the fabric used in the coat
Size: the size of the coat
style: the particular model within brioni's range of models for example suits i have seen are Nomentano, millenio, chiga, etc, and tuxedos: Spartaco, quinreilli (sp?)
line: no idea what this it
6R: the drop from the chest size to the waist of the coat, i would suggest putting up measurements though and not just going by this

If your selling what are you thinking price wise?

I venture to guess that this is a special Brioni line for rich Russian patrons.

It's certainly a sell-able size. Larger sizes are sometimes harder to sell. What color is it? What kind of condition is it in? Guanaco is almost as expensive as vicuna at retail.

Thanks Jeff,

 

Though English is my 1st language!

 

How might I get the style and fabric information confirmed? This is a beautiful piece that on touch has the ability to do all the talking, but it wouldn't be proper to sell without I don't think. It is actually an inherited item so may be hard to locate the original taylor but I shall get on to it. The fitting has been altered to fit me so I'm clear on that part. Any recommended auction options?

The value of it shall be the next venture of attainment! Smart black classic gentlemen's overgarment, perfect condition and well looked after. One button missing but will be amended for sale.

 

I have found none like it anywhere for sale or in discussion. Which is both a positive and negative for my interest in valuation. But the original retail price known by anyone serious about this type cloth artistry as back up should I not get any serious offers or valuations. So far style forum proving the most learned and sophisticated in the sales and knowledge! So here I am.

I think you can just drop Brioni an email if you wanna find out more about the fabric. Cant really give you any advice on pricing, but if the above poster is correct then i would price is slightly below used Brioni Vicuna coats.

Here i found this thread hopefully it helps out a bit

Ok thanks again Jeff. Shame that post is a few years old as this item would have suited the request. Im familiar with Vicuna and the quality of the two cloths side by side are indistinguishable other than personal preference of the wearer. Im interested myself on the fabric so shall get some info from Brioni.

btromano - the market for these pieces are respectively unique to the buyer so would like to hear serious offers and not quote one. As i said to Jeff regarding the cloth, I am aware that Brioni's style of cloth making is ultimate artistry with some items being extremely unique in either design or fabric, and ultimately very unique in the availability for a reduced/used sale at all. With that in mind without the fabric information confirming any particular excess in quality I would be looking for around the half price mark of the current retail value.
