post #27091 of 33197
Can anyone tell me if $550 is a believable price for a legimate Caruso Sartoria Parma suit? It seems like that number is a bit too low, but I really don't know if that is the case. It is brand new, and is also from a source located in Italy (which may or may not be of any importance).

Is this an unheard of (suspicious) price point? Assuming that it is legitimate, would you rate the price as: great, very good, good, decent, average or less?

On the subject of legitimacy, here is a collage containing photos of the jacket's various labels/tags:




Do these seem like the real deal?

Yes, it's real. I think I know which seller you're referring to, and their prices are very decent.

Anyone know what the hell this label says? - its on a shearling coat, if that helps.

Here in Japan, my observation is that, younger people wear single vest jackets. 40+ years old group wears double vest. My most conservative suits have double vest jackets. But, as someone mentioned, it is about the body type. No belly body for me looks better in single vest.

Maybe it's only in my mind, but to me, single vent looks very American and double vent looks very European. As I think European men are better dressers and I live in Europe, I always go double vent.

Hi,
I was wondering if any one could tell me if and where I could buy a waist-coat/vest that is all the same material and not have the lining on the back from in Sydney or online within Australia, any help would be much appreciated.

Will the scuffs go away even if I use neutral cream polish, or would it have to be a (walnut) colored polish? Thank you for helping!

Coloured polish will hide the scuffs. Then you can put a coat of neutral on top if you wish.

Hey folks,

 

I have this suit that is proven to be a bit difficult to match (shirts and ties) with. It also doesn't photo very well, it's a grey-blue base with a very light rose pin check. 

 

Given these two shoe options which would you go with? Merlot Strand or the Walnut? I don't think I have another shoe option that will pair well.

 

 

 

Thanks!

I'd definitely go with the merlot, bring out the rose stripe a bit. Light pink shirt + dark burgundy tie should work nicely (avoid true red). All of that will complement the grey-blue as well. Also, are you using shoe trees?

Thanks for the advice! I really want to try and make the walnut work but I think it's too much contrast in this instance.

 

I know I probably should be using trees, but I haven't :(

People's tastes widely vary on tan/walnut shoes, but I personally think they only go well with light earth-tone trousers/suits. YMMV. In this case though, the merlot pairs nicely with the rose accent, as mentioned.

 

Definitely invest in some shoe trees. This is really a non-negotiable thing. You can pick them up fairly cheaply, though make sure they're sized right - I use AE split-toe/combination trees in all of my shoes, AE and all other makes, and they are sized in ranges from S-M-L. Not only do they keep the shoe in proper shape (literally and figuratively), they absorb moisture and, just - seriously, get some ASAP! Not to be on your ass or anything, but from the photos the shoes do look like they need some TLC. Shoes are an investment, treat them as such.
