Here's the actual item link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/131481103470

Thanks

That's one of the older labels, but nothing jumps out at me to question its authenticity. Personally I think the price might be a bit much for that coat but ymmv.

Thanks, lads. I went wuthering burgundy. And I hadn't given that suit a proper public debut (in this country) yet, so I had to!

Check out Banana Republic. You might need to size down a bit, but their sale section in store has some fantastic deals sometimes.

Out of the two who do you think makes the slimmer shirt? Hugo Boss (slim fit) or TM Lewin (slim fit)?

i have a hugo boss slim fit shirt that is almost skin tight slim. so, i can't imagine TM Lewin (or anything else) being slimmer.

How much should I pay for this suit realistically? I think it's one of the Isaia made suits for Saks. It's for sale OBO from a co-worker/friend but I'm not sure what to offer. Sorry for the poor pics I grabbed a few quick shots so that I can try to identify it.

Hey guys. First time poster.

can anybody tell me something about: Lanificio F.lli Cerruti?
I'm looking at buying a suit that uses this brand of wool.

 

thank a lot in advance.

Cerruti makes some good cloth my friend, but it's not any better than Reda, VBC, or Loro Piana. I personally like VBC (vitale barberis canonico) wool the best; they make some seriously durable yet ridiculously luxurious cloths. Just like any mill though, they will have their "bread and butter" wools, and then their "tres-luxe" wools, so it's not really one mill vs another, it's better to compare specific swatches/garments

Am I crazy if I'm contemplating selling my unworn Carminas:

 

 

And buying these Aldens instead?

 


I wanted some burgundy shell jumper boots to wear casually and I got the Carminas, but I'm not used to dress shoes and I find the Carminas too dressy, especially the toebox which is quite pointy.

post #30464 of 33197
If you're always going to feel uncomfortable in them then yes do sell them.

If the dye has faded there is nothing you can do unless you can figure out how to redye it.
If it is the crease a few washings and it might disappear. Get it quite wet and put the iron on it.
