Some of the Pal Zileri ones as well, I'm sometimes on the fence about.

Well that keeper has never existed ever on a real Canali tie and neither has that print on the lining on the reverse of the large blade. Your Zileri is good to go, but that Canali is definitely not kosher.

Thanks @Spruce Moose, @Jompso.

 

I do remember seeing the thicker thread/stitch, on some past Canali ties which are at home.  I can see what you mean by this one now.  I'll double-check when I get home, and take a look at the keepers as well.

Heads up to those that live near a major metropolitan/GOOD Bloomingdales.....They've had this seasons line of Canali 1934 and Kei as well as Eidos Napoli on Clearance but today only it's an extra 60% off all clearance items...if you want some Isaia made.... in the factory owned by the company that manufacturers Isaia but doesn't manufacturer mainline Isaia blah blah blah .... better yet, if you are someone who has never given a fuck about the different Isaia manufacturing facilities and just generally accept that all they're tailored Goods (not including Gianluca Napoli line) are fucking gorgeous pieces of work, even though construction quality does differ a little....then go buy some motherfucking Eidos for pennies on the dollar cuz that shit is straight fire...your welcome..

Berle seersucker shorts for me


Anonymous hand rolled pocket square for me


Giannetto Portofino for me. Never heard of the brand before but the fabric, collar and construction are all decent. MOP buttons and single need stitching.


NWT Belted Cow belt


Current BB ties. One NWT.


POP on Cifonelli!. 100% linen. 36. On the fence about keeping these, since they do fit but I'd need to taper them.


Ledbury x 3. All size 18.


My favorite find of the day, Smathers & Branson "Republican" needlepoint belt. Size 36. My first S&B belt. I don't think this was ever worn.

I actually prefer Eidos over Isaia. Love the few pieces I have. If anyone goes and is willing to proxy anything 40 L I'll make it worth your while.

If I had a little more money in the bank I'd be all over the Canali Kei.

At true thrift price, IDGAF because I'll use it in the home office if not really flipable. Has some nice things, like dovetail construction on the drawer. Thanks for the heads up tho!

Link? I can't seem to find it and don't have cable.

 

Edit - Never mind, found it.

https://www.ispot.tv/ad/AjFi/jos-a-bank-suit-challenge

 

Didn't have to go one second beyond this shot to tell you which one was Jos A Bank

 

 

 

Hint, its the one with the outdated boxy cut and football pad shoulders

40 L. You should buy this: https://*****************/listings/412945-Eidos-Eidos-Plaid-Sport-Coat-50L-40L

 

If it fit me, I would. 

 

Edit: Why no Grailed links?

RLBL Daniel Linen SC 40 R NWOT for well under the 10% rule. My photography set-up is poor, but its a great cobalt blue.



Good God that's stunning.
And my size too. mwink[1].gif

Edit: Why no Grailed links?
I think they had some scrap during the early days of Grailed --- I think Grailed was spamming people here.
Eidos is fine. More unstructured cut than most Isaia. But some cuts are not very flattering. And I have yet to see one with the level of handwork I've seen on (some) Isaia.
EDIT: BTW, if the one you tried to link to is the green Lorenzo, that's the one from No Man Walks Alone and is specifically the one that DOESN'T fit me well.
