Yeah, it's not the drop.  I'm not sure what it is.  I just checked some Ebay listings and can't figure it out what it refers to exactly but suits all have numbers after the / and the sport coats are /00.

The last one has a twill weave, usually means blazer forget that, it's subtle so it can be a suit, as is the blue wimdowpane, orphan. The middle has an open twill weave, always a SC. The first absolutely looks like an orphan, if that's the Zegna there is a chance the suit was bought as separates, thus the jacket saying jacket on the tag.

First is Canali. Twill weave too though, no?
post #29494 of 51459

The last is an orphan. Pencil windowpane, and that super subtle blue pencil windowpane. Very fine twill. Suit Jacket....The first and third have pants, the middle's pattern says it should as well, but it's a SC.

Yes but a very fine one, not a prominent twill, something noticeable only when looking over the fabric.

I'll go back tomorrow but I'm not hopeful. Top to bottom those are the Canali, EZ, and 20% cash Corn.

Came out to just under $10 a pop.

Shit...maybe Cornenliani did put out a 20% cash suit... Dunno on this without seeing in person...has a high contrast windowpane which leans towards SC, but the extremely faint blue one leans towards orphan, both being pencil winowpane lean orphan, fabric content leans SC...sell it as whatever, but by the age of the tag, the fact that its 20% cash, and the store being good about keeping suits together, if there were ever pants, you're not finding them cuz there gone.

Shit, @Jompso I passed a jacket with that Balmain tag...Bad pass? I mean, it wasn't all that great. It didn't have all the bells and whistles.

No your fine. I grabbed it cuz it was recent mainline Balmain, wool/silk, and cheap so I said fuck it. The original retail for the thing was probably ridiculous but resale isn't gonna be anything special.
