From what I could see w/google, the price online ranges from 495.00 to 850.00

Any pointers to an eBay guide for newbies and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

I almost replied the first time but didnt want to be called a jerk patch[1].gif, but come on .... this is the "thrift bragging thread" not the "I'm a newbie, how do I flip stuff on ebay thread". I'm really not looking to give you a hard time, but this is the WRONG thread to be posting this question, hence why no one responded the first time. Use the search function on the forum or make a new post asking for help or suggestions, and I am sure you will get help/suggestions but this is the wrong thread.

Suggestions?


Thats not a real problem, but is a pain. Just tell him to ship them back and give him a refund. Make sure to take good measurements and put in big bold words right above the measurements LOOK AT MEASUREMENTS - NO RETURNS (even then I still take returns so I dont get negative feedback).

WOW!


If you just let the stuff sit on ebay someone will come by and buy it or make you a nice offer :) I find like with selling pretty much anything in life, it's not usually the price but just finding the right buyer (if you have the time).

That's great info, thanks!

Hmmm.  I still can't see a difference between the two.  Is it just that the Canali is always entirely in Italian, or is there some actual physical difference between the two tags that I'm just not seeing?  Thanks!

Canali looks to have the "capi" on the right hand side...

Look at the order and placement of the fields on the tag. The top right field on the Corneliani is "Ordine", on the Canali it's "Cliente" and "Ordine" is to the left of it. The PRL is obviously the same as the Corneliani, but the Dior Monsieur you posted is Canali.

I saw the exact same jacket in my local thrift this past weekend. You didn't happen to be in the northern part of our fair state when you picked it up, did you?

Yeah, it looks like a combination of the headings being all in Italian on the Canali, and the canali having the "Capi" in a different section.  Thanks.

Compare the two pictures that I've just "borrowed" from the eBay links and then compare to the label that you have.  You should see that Grendel is correct.

 

1. Canali

2. Corneliani

In addition, Corneliani tends to have the model written in English (at least of the one's I've seen) and both the Canali and Corneliani have different typefaces (fonts).

 

Still, Canali's not a maker to laughed at.

 

I really hope that this helps?

I was speaking to a friend of mine who sells suits, he said he gets so many Canali suits in because the American businessmen buy them. If you offered them Kiton or Canali, they would take the Canali, just because it more likely they have heard of that over Kiton.

Tell your friend to pick up those Kiton's at super great prices for use SF members mwink[1].gif or I'd take a Canali in 36S Slim (do they even make that size lol)?

I agree, the newer Canali seems to be very nice stuff. Softer shoulders, nice SC patterns. I'm impressed with it. What's the new model called again?

Tagged Medium but seems to run small - pit to pit is ballpark of 19-20 inches(!) - it's a VERY stretchy cotton, but I really think it's probably more like a Small.

Dang! Amazing find, though!
