I'm pretty sure they're Generic Man (same company as Generic Surplus, but made in Portugal). Price point is in the high 200-low 300 range. Has made shoes for Public School also.

Probably the same or similar factory to STA and VE.

This one broke my heart this weekend. It's a suit, found in a thrift but it was littered with small stains and little holes. I would have purchased if it was regular thrift prices but they wanted a bit more and I probably wouldn't have gotten a return on my investment.

Also, how is the quality of Dolce's Suiting? I dont actually own anything except a couple undershirts from them. 

I have a suit from the "luxury" line. The fit and style are nice but the prices are stupid for the quality of it. Not worth the msrp. I feel its maybe at lower teir HF level in quality for double the price. I thrifted mine though, so I didn't care.

A first for me- I hadn't even found mainline before.

What is that velvet?
post #102938 of 121237

Yeah, lol

 

As far as I can tell these were actually worn in The Claiborne Identity and The Claiborne Supremacy, but were retired before The Claiborne Ultimatum was filmed.

My Tellason Crapshoot came to my post office box at work today and had a chance to try them on. Very pleased with them. They are straight leg black jeans.

And I bet you could sell those with that story Peterman style.

That Claiborne pant dry cleaning customer is hilarious. He did seem to change his tone with the police.
