I claim to have no fashion expertise, but, I kind of like where this guy is coming from. Thoughts? 

I hate this guy, as someone who regularly buys Brioni retail he f*cked the brand up for me. All the new stuff looks like a knock off of the brand. I can't wait till he gets kicked to the curb. I'm sure the original Brioni tailors are rolling in their graves.

I know this isn't the right place to ask but I gots no where else to go and since I thrifted my jacket, it kind of fits.

 

I accidentally rolled over my jacket at work with the chair. It left like a black glue stain and like tire marks over the back of the jacket

 

It's a faded red cotton jacket. I tried to scrub like a mad man with just hand soap, water and a brush but I couldn't get it out. The dry cleaner says he doesn't want to touch it because the color will fade. Any suggestions or am I pooched?

This is what I thought. As someone who doesn't buy or own Brioni (except for ties) I couldn't make an educated statement. But, those thoughts were running through my head. 

 

As I was watching I thought about the guys on here like what would they think of this approach? 

 

Thanks!

If the hand wash didnt fade it i doubt drycleaning would. If its cooked anyway id ask him to proceed unless somebody else has a method. Id imagine it would help with the glue (!) Good luck.

Wait, this isn't what Brioni should be?



His first collection with Brioni and while there is a cool piece here and there, most of it blows. I'm not sure I'd like a lot of it no matter who made it. Certainly not from them though.

Thanks. So when I got there the owner had literally just got back from vacation so this was the first he saw it. He said he can remove the stain no problem but where I scrubbed it faded a little. It was his nephew that called and misstated the situation to me. It's faded red to begin with so we'll see how it looks once the stain is gone.

Highlight of the day. My very first ever.

 

 

And it had to be a seven fold.

Asked this in the want thread too:

Anyone looking to get rid of a pair of slim-ish denim in 29-30? I've been trying to find a pair for a while and have come up empty-handed.

Preferably made in USA/Japan and with a non-low rise.
