Sewn-on buttonholes, which leads me to believe it's crap.

That isn't crap, I am not sure about the rest of their stuff because I have limited experience handling it. I mentioned Missoni, it was a dress shirt also Made in Italy. Your right, Missoni created a line for Target, however it is considered high end fashion. Their stuff can be found in Neiman's, Nordstrom's, Saks, etc. and is known for the crazy color styles and patterns. They also make home products and I think they have a hotel?

I am not sure how the SC's sell though, sorry.

Thanks for the info.  Yeah, like I said, the material seemed fine but the sewn-on buttonholes threw me off.

Back in the 90s, Mossimo sold mid-high end denim, et al.  Now they are a Target brand. 

There is a Missoni for Target line, not very good.

My wife has since thrown out all her old Missoni :crackup[1].gif

From what I know, the only Missoni worth grabbing is their wild colored zig-zag design stuff (that isn't made for Target). Sold a zig-zag print velvet blazer several months back for $100+. Couldn't give a mint Missoni charcoal suit away.

Quick question...I picked up a blazer with the label Gieves & Hawkes Bespoke for Barneys.
However, inside the pocket was an American Garment Workers union tag.
For a Seville Row label, how is it made in America?

Thanks,
O

Check the size tag and see if it looks like this:

355

Hickey Freeman makes their domestic product (and I find a lot).

Hide it and wait for a yellow-tag clearance! I was trying to do that with a Kiton at a Marshall's by me, but someone snatched it up

Yellow tag just ended (still continuing at some stores). These MIGHT get dropped 1 or 2 times by $10 per pop but will not likley see yellow tag for a few months. This one is currently looking at the inside of my trunk through the semi-opaque-blur of a plastic bag.

My first find of any note - an Ermenegildo Zegna "soft" navy blazer. I say blazer, but given it's a three-button I think it may be more likely an orphaned suit jacket (no pants were found). Regardless, I'll wear it as a blazer. Unless I can flip it on the 'Bay.

 

Oh, and a lovely Bugatti (?) bookbag/briefcase in brown leather.

Zegna soft likely to be a sport coat. As for flippability, Zegna soft was canned around 6/7 years ago, it may be worth a few bucks but not much. Wear it and enjoy it.
