Yeah, my other Charvet's have pilling but supposedly these have only been worn once or twice and one of them is new.

What are the details on this?

Seemingly unworn Chester Barrie solid light blue shirt today. Interesting that i've caught a few pieces from Savile Row houses this week (at different stores in close promixity), when I normally see none.

Been striking out in ties lately, so this was a nice change of pace. One stop, 3x Brioni, 3x Zegna (one Couture) and two Versace. Can I get an authenticity check on the later @SpooPoker? Made in Spain tag has me a little skeptical...

Here's the quick & dirty explanation. There 3 basic "models" of 1911s.

Government- 5" barrel
Commander- 4.25" barrel
Officer- 3.5" barrel (also uses a smaller frame vs the others).

There are obviously other niche models (double stacks of varying lengths, long slides, etc.), but those 3 are what most people reference, and typically only used to reference barrel lengths.

I've never picked one of these suits up before. Not bad for a beater suit. Hopefully I'll get a couple bucks on ebay.

Weird 1911s have always seemed to have a much more elongated barrel and slide extention to me... I thought they were for sure bigger then mine, nothin close to the quality of a 1911, Ruger .345 .45 Stainless slide, polymer grip, 6 inch w/ 10+1 capacity (CA law)
