post #28711 of 138728
Wondering if I ran into one of you guys yesterday, or if it was a flipper. Dude had a cart full of shirts and on top was an Eton. Asked him if it was his cart (hoping it was a cart that an employee was using to put out shirts), but it was his. So we had a talk about high end menswear for a minute or so. This would have been a good time to have a SF tie clip or something. Anyway, picked up the orange Brioni tie yesterday as well, the other Brionis were picked up recently as well:

I considered polishing shoes pantsless, but figured I would be questioned by my wife about the brown stains on my legs. Lol

Recent Zegna 80 cashmere/20 linen in EU52. I think I just need to have the sleeves shortened and waist redueced. I want to keep it for myself, unless there is an offer that I cannot resist icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I hit one of my secret stores one hour before it closes today and scored the following, all in my size and fits perfectly!
Two Correll & Co linen/silk/wool sportcoats in different color. They are made in US, and I remember there is some discussion about the maker for this tag of Correll & Co jackets in somewhere in StyleForum, but I cannot remember. Does anyone has some information about the maker?

Correll & Co pure cashmere sportcoat, made in Italy. Anyone recognize the maker?

Paul Stuart pure camelhair sportcoat. I found two holes on the sleeves. I think I am going to return it to the store for store credit. But I can sell it for $30 shipped in case anyone want to have it rewoven.

Two more Paul Stuart sportcoats. Do you guys think the lapels are way too wide?

Finally nice ties! I forgot to take the photo of a Ferragamo tie. The Santoni (wow.gif) tie is a 7 fold.

I won't usually buy the Correll & Co and the Paul Stuart sportcoats, as they are not really special enough. But it is quite rare they they fit so nicely...
I left quite a few Correll & Co made by Hickey Freeman sportcoats in 44 to 48 and a few more RT Best Class ties. If anyone is interested I can proxy for near cost. Since I only had one hour, I just checked the ties and the jackets/suits. I will go there to check the rest of the store tomorrow./SPOILER]

Wait, you pass up Paul Stuart and Carroll & Co stuff?!? If I find any recent Paul Stuart items it's a great day for me. Carroll & Co's Made in England stuff is made by Chester Barrie. Really well made.
