Is that a Koch brother's brioni?! David and Charles Koch. Weird.

It is, picked up 2 Brioni and 4 Oxxford suits that day at the thrift all from him. Best day ever!

Nah, we've had trolls before (and lastdonb isn't one, I don't think, just abusive to the eyes). I know I've reported several trolling posts that the good mods have removed. nod[1].gif

"He has a penchant for expensive clothes (especially custom-made outfits by Italian designer

So it's very possible it is a Brioni. 


The Kerkorian label has the Roman Chariot mark of Ceasers Palace.

Oooh, interesting stuff... so that's where the Kerkorian brand came from. I see a couple of Kerkorian ties on the bay with labels reminiscent of old Brionis.
The plot thickens, though - apparently "abla fashion for men" is the brand - and jefferyd thought it was a RTW project of Angelo Blasi... who's a Neapolitan tailor mentioned quite a bit in the same breath as Attolini. I doubt one of his projects would have used a substandard maker.

Finally made it to my honey hole that's hardly ever open... A large man must have made an end-of-year donation of a LOT of stuff. I found 3 Hickey Freeman suits, I think they're all 50L. One is solid navy, NWT, and unhemmed with a grey HF tag. The other two are for Saks I think and both had Loro Piana fabric tags, one navy pinstripe and the other charcoal grey. Also picked up a Giorgio Armani le Collezioni suit, made in Italy, black, 3 button. Also found a HF shirt, size 17.5/36, yellow herringbone, new in the bag. 

 

Only thing I picked up that's my size is a Grant Thomas merino wool, made in Italy grey v-neck sweater vest. Probably would have left it but....

 

The best thing about the haul was that they've moved to a bag sale... $5 per shopping bag. All of that fit in 2 shopping bags, including the original HF suit hanger with the NWT suit. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifThere was even more stuff there including a HF 100% cashmere sportcoat, but they all had a bit of damage and I didn't want to get crazy with the size 48-50 stuff. 

 

So the question... How horrible are piss stains? The worn suits had a bit of staining there, but it was the only damage on them. I would have left them if it cost me $10-15 / per but as it was...

Picked up this nice Lorenzini purplish stripe shirt to toss on the bay, but was taking the pictures and noticed the buttons above the cuff (wrist buttons?) holes were still stitched. Has anyone else experienced this before? Should I carefully cut the button holes open? Thanks

 

Maybe NSFW... lol (Click to show)

I've replaced yellowed (possibly pee-stained) linings in pants before. It was like $40 or something.

Worth flipping without doing so? I don't want to invest a lot into them... Although the fabric on the pinstripe is amazing.

Actually "the rest" lol... tough love! smile.gif


Edit: Ah, and it looks like someone on the HOF thread responded about the maker label on that Abla / Kerkorian suit... apparently it's a very old Caruso. That makes it the second nicest tailored thing I've found locally, after the RLPL cashmere SC (which is 44L and still available)spam[1].gif

Italian 52 = USA 42... shame this thing wasn't a bit smaller. I'll probably throw it up on B&S one of these days along with the Caruso 150's SC and Isaia navy suit that folks keep backing out on. baldy[1].gif

All of them were in perfect like new shape (mostly because the oldest were from the mid 90's) and I really have no idea if there was a goldmine there or not but there sure was a shit ton of them.
They also got in a nice sized donation suits all from the same guy, purchased from the same shop, and every single one of them had some kind of funky crap on the pants whether its food stains, bleach, and what I'm really choosing to hope is some sort of sticky white condiment. Samuelsohn, Boss, and Brooks all wrecked.
Sigh.

You can always check popsike.com (logs ended ebay auctions of records of value) if you think you think there is something worth while without purchasing it.

You've got me on that one! I'm not really sure, but am leaning towards the rest to say it's possibly made by Brioni.
