Some guy asked me if Lanvin was a good brand... French President wear  bespoke Lanvin suits. Does it give you an idea of their quality and rang prices? A 7 fold ties costs 160 euros
Was he crazy, Lanvin is one of the most acclaimed French brands. Their store on Bond Street never fails to amaze me. By the way, Ernest I have two vintage Lanvin Ties, if you want them, I will post them to you, I will post pictures in just a second.

(ernest @ 21 July 2004, 8:52) I also bought the blue twill today so I have the same suit twice now.... The pinstripe suit you see is 1 300 euros, I paid it 390 euros. What costs 390 euros? - two 7 fold ties from Lanvin - 1 fashion trousers from Versace or some desiner's shit - a shirt from Kiton Well who is wasting his money?
Amazing price, and also that pinstripe is a very nice suit. Too bad you now have repeat suits, I have done that many times, it is very annoying.
I have a friend who worked at Lanvin till last mounth and so I was invited to their private sales (for employee and friends), everything on 3 grounds where at -70% It is very difficult to enter in such sales because all Paris would like to go in... Could I enter last time? ? Nothing is less sure, so...

I like the suits. I particularly enjoy the latest pinstripe. I have no opinion on yours or any other watches. I am purely into funtionality when it comes to watches. I do not treat them as jewelry.

Fabrics is very soft and construction is very nice although machine made. The only thing I do not really like is shoulders with pading like napolitan suit I guess. I like suits with very thin pading. Lanvin suits are not slim enough on waist but I could fix it by a tailor. Nevertheless this is only RTW and for the price this is a bargain.

Thanks but you can keep them because : - color is too fade - you see Lanvin written on the tie - I have 66 ties so I would never wear them "Was Chirac crasy..." = he is crasy BUT has good taste?

Okay, but they are not faded, that is the flash.

Why would Lanvin do something so "Countess Mara-like" as putting its name in big letters on its ties? I mean, for example, Michael Smith will be Secretary of Homeland Security before a company like Charvet would do such a thing. I wonder if this is something new for Lanvin?

New? Those ties are from the 80's

(ernest @ 21 July 2004, 1:42) Wool (fused) = 800 euros Super 120 = 1 200 euros Super 150 = 1 650 euros Wool = 1 200 euros I paid 30% of theses prices. WHO could say I should not have taken them?  Does this guy pay his garment with 70% discount?
I think ernest is a nutter, but I will agree with him, firstly he got very good prices and secondly I do not think that people on this board should comment on others financial situations, be they rich or poor. Hint toward people who have this obsessive nature of disproving I am Mittal.
I can add suits are very nice and very classic (never out of fashion) and I can not change my taste on such garments

What is the color? Grey and beige? This is 2 very fade color or at least terne for a tie. Check my last ties, they have got deep colors...
Ah you mean light, not fade, I see.

I think you misunderstood, I did not say Chirac is crazy, I said the person who asked you what Lanvin was is crazy.
