post #22591 of 112343


All true, but worth nothing that Italian-made Dior Monsieur is (often? always?) by  Corneliani, so usually worth picking up.



The only Dior that is worth picking up is Dior Homme. If it's Christian Dior Monsieur (usually made in the USA), it is best left avoided. RLPL is top notch. Gant, as a recent brand, has reinvented itself quite nicely. However the older stuff is all over the place and not really worth picking up, imo. RL polos are a staple type item for a lot of folks and you'll see them at almost every thrift store in the US. I don't pick up Le Tigre, but the stuff seems to be of ok quality. Levis is Levis, dependable enough clothing. The only thing that you have that is flippable is most likely the RLPL shirt. However, if the stuff you picked up fits you well and you are happy with it, I think you did ok.

What are the measurements on that BB suede jacket or are you keeping it? Might be interested if its a true small.

I suppose you're right, if you just put Saint Andres in the auction title you should have no problem selling it. devil.gifdevil.gifdevil.gif

That jacket is p2p 23", shoulders 21, sleeves 23 - but note that the shoulders often "overhang" on leather jackets by design. It's a pretty thick jacket, and it's outerwear, so I'd say the measurements are about where I'd expect a small to be taking that into account.

Looking at that jacket more, it's clearly worn, and I'd say needs leather cleaning, but structurally and all everything looks fine. @#%@#* why are things like this never my size... Also, I'm not 100% sure if it's suede or just leather in need of moisturizing and care. I might actually lean towards that, actually, looking at the close-up photo of it.

That's good to know because I see Monsieur stuff all the time. Is Dior Grand Luxe a step above or not worth picking up?

That Brooks old man jacket looks awesome. What is it, leather?  Suede?  It's hard to tell.

Well, I don't know if this is always the case and I don't want to lead you astray, so this is the tag you should be looking for for Corneliani-made Dior:

Great job paypal... I feel bad for the seller. Sounds like the buyer might have smashed a fake or something else to get her money, and kept the violin.

Content tag just says it's 100% Genuine Leather... which is no help. I really do think it might be a *leather* jacket that just feels soft due to age and needing conditioning. I'd have no problem rocking it myself if it were bigger. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

That buyer is a total scumbag.  Ugh, how can people be so nonchalantly morally reprehensible?

Sorry to be a pain, but what you're looking at is a Canali label, not a Corneliani.

Interesting.  Not a pain at all, and thanks a lot for the correction!

 

Edit:  Actually, I'm not so sure about that...Check under Corneliani here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/hof-labels-heels-and-nail-patterns-secrets-to-id-the-maker

 

and I'm sure that's right because I have an Italian-made PRL that I know for sure was made by Corneliani that has the same bottom label.

Any suggestions on what price I should expect? I have very few ratings because I only recently started buying stuff there (thanks to SF!)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
From what I could see w/google, the price online ranges from 495.00 to 850.00

Had my first hassle on eBay today! Yay?

 

I sold the Versace jeans I found... They were marked a 32 x 30 but the guy got them and complained that they were smaller than 32 and too tight... I guess I should offer to let him ship them back and refund his money? I dunno... Seems obvious to me that high-end brands don't vanity size like Gap or Old Navy, but whatever. 

 

Suggestions?

Did you include measurements?  If not, it's a tough call :-/.

I often get confused between them myself.

 

I've just done a search on eBay.

 

1. Canali label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Canali-46R-56EU-Pure-Wool-Black-2-button-Tailored-sportcoat-/180793582146?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item2a18232242

2. Corneliani label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Corneliani-Couture-1-Button-Tuxedo-Jacket-44R-NEW-1595-/360424642486?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item53eafb97b6

3. PRL label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Polo-Ralph-Lauren-2-Button-Bradford-Charcoal-Pinstripe-Suit-44R-NEW-1595-/260931383642?pt=US_CSA_MC_Suits&hash=item3cc0b8f15a

 

I hope that this helps.
