Is that silk? Your item specifics say 100% silk but I would have guessed linen.

I've been mostly lurking for a couple months or so and wanted to start off with a thank you all for the info you share and encouragement (generally) found in this thread in particular. I have learned a ton from simply reading your past posts and have even picked up a couple nice items from members here (thanks Versace Guy and White Collar for the items). I finally stumbled on a fairly nice haul, for me, and had a couple questions I was hoping someone could help with.
First of all, I found all of this marked for large men, XXL, which probably was why it stayed on the rack for me to find on a Sunday afternoon. I'm thinking the 54 on the tags made employees at the shop think the suits were quite large, rather than a different system. In any event, I found about a dozen Canali jackets that appear to have been purchased at some point from a men's clothing shop in St. Louis. I was also able to reunite a few of them with their pants that I found sized properly a few aisles over. The great news is that most of them fit me with little to no need for alteration and I also found what looks to be 8 pretty nice ties to go with them.
Problem is, other than reading the tags to understand size/material, I have no idea how to glean more info. Despite that, I figured it was worth the ~ $7 per jacket to take a shot so I bought them all.
With that, how does one tell how old a suit is, the particular style, etc...? Is that something one can understand by simply tag scanning? I have included a few pics of tags that are a pretty good representation of the cross-section of jackets/suits I bought today. There are two pictures per jacket (front and back of tag). Any direction folks can give me would be much appreciated, particularly if they can guide me on how to interpret the tag.
Also, what do you gents suggest to do with the half dozen or so orphaned jackets I have? Do you normally pair with a solid color pant? Sell online to make room for more suits? Other suggestions?
Thanks so much in advance for your help. Hopefully I find nice enough items to post to this thread with more regularity in the future.post #39561 of 514926/27/16 at 2:14am
^^ For Canali, those blue labels you have are older, probably more than 13 years old. The more recent brown labels are about 4 to 13 years old, and the current label(< 3 year old) is the one with an insignia. Another member might be able to tell you the exact timeline based on the label. The "Modello" on the inner tag tells you the fit, more specifically, the second digit of that number. The lower the number, the more generous the fit, the 11320 you have there means it is very generous in fit. 11xxx to 13xxx are classic fitting, and 15xxx to 18xxx are more slim-fitting. Someone with a more detailed knowledge might be able to tell you more.
Orphaned jacket that is not striped and be worn as a blazer. I wear them with t shirt, jeans and sneakers GQ style for the young look, which other people here might grill me onpost #39562 of 514926/27/16 at 4:34ampost #39563 of 514926/27/16 at 4:52am
I'm far from an expert but when I found one awhile ago and when I was looking it up, most if not all belts from 90s on were made in Spain and had a heat stamp for the info? Spoo could probably tell you more
Edit: That Polo bear bed set is dope as hell Spoo haha. I wonder what the age limit is for having bears on your bed sheets lolpost #39564 of 514926/27/16 at 7:47ampost #39565 of 514926/27/16 at 8:04ampost #39566 of 514926/27/16 at 8:07am
Pendleton Robe Carrying Case
@Fueco Any idea on the age on these? The care tag is faded so I can't pull any style/product codes and haven't found anything comparable online.
The Nordstrom Rack nearby has gotten some slightly more interesting shoes than normal. If anyone is interested in any of these let me know and I'm happy to proxy
I was primarily looking in the 11/11.5 section, but many of these could be had in other Sizes
