Alright guys, these are a little outside of my comfort zone, but thats how you grow right? 

If anyone can give me some more information about the model names or anything, especially the Louboutin's I would appreciate it.

Paid up for each, so hopefully they're legit, they looked good to my relatively untrained eye, nice stitching etc.

501Z is 1954 or 1955. First one looks like 47 tho.

This doesn't fit but seems like a shame to leave it. Can't find a content tag but I'd wager 100% cashmere and it's a mid waist coat. Size 52 Do I buy?

Can't tell if serious? I'd buy if it's in good shape/not moth ridden... And if it's a 38/39, you could send it my way, haha.

2 quick questions on Brioni suits. Is there a difference between a Brioni suit and a Brioni made for (Neiman Marcus, Harry Rosen, whomever)

Saw few that say Tailored in Italy by Brioni for.... but not sure if they are as good as straight Brioni ones.

Also, what is a fair price for a used Brioni suit. I know it depends on variety of things. Looked on ebay at sold listings and noticed that prices are from $100-$600 for used suit. Is that a fair range?

Thanks for the help

1. No difference.

2. A lot depends on condition, fabric (cashmere, for instance would sell for more), color, pattern, how new the tag is, styling (dual vented jacket is more desirable than an unvented jacket, for example). So, yeah, the prices are all over the place. Stick around in this thread and you'll soon get an idea of what's what. Or, search on ebay for sold listings, sort by price, and you'll soon be able to figure out why one Brioni suit sold for $100 while another sold for $600.

Couple of shoe finds, apologies for the crappier than usual phone pics.

 

Stone mint BB brown suede, handmade in Italy, vibram soles, 8.5.

Need some help here. Built like a tank. Made in Italy. Faded lettering and all I can make out is 'Fatte a mano', which doesn't quite help. Lettering on the side says 'Original manufacturing'. Anyone recognize the nail pattern? 7.5. Dark Brown.
