Standard cuffs, but lists a french cuff length?

Rich buttons on this one.

first, that shirt is PURE SEX.

second, i don't think the 44 is a sleeve length. from what i've read, italian shirts all come in one standard sleeve length, and it's up to the shirtmaker or whoever to adjust it to your correct length. the "44" is just "17.5" in centimetros.

Hey all, I join Mainy and AlanC as proud KC thrifters. I've never made a true brag post but just had a fantastic haul and thought I would share!

First:

Thresher & Glenny bespoke (MtM?) exactly in my size. Both are double vented, slim fit, flat front pants. First is medium grey herringbone with powder-blue windowpane, second is dark grey 3-piece with medium blue pinstripes.

Next, two Brioni double breasted unvented in my size although the waist needs to be let out a bit. First is grey pinstripe, second is navy pinstripe

GreyBrioniJacket.jpg

NavyBrioniJacket.jpg

Finally, two more suits from the same guy which I can't identify. The quality is extremely high, easily on par with the Brionis but I don't recognize the tag. First is a cashmere/wool blend flannel double breasted grey with red pinstripes. Second is single breasted grey pinstripes.

SingleBreastGreyPinstripeJacket.jpg

Any help with identification would be greatly appreciated!

All of them are suits and as far as I can tell there is no moth damage. There is a little damage to the dark grey Thresher but it should cost less than $50 to repair

Definitely correct. 44 sleeve length would be crazy long. Going to need to measure those sleeves. My guess is your looking at 36 - 37 inches unless they were altered.

What you think of my Brioni?


CAN YOU FIND A MORE LUX-LUX-LUXURIOUS TIE?

(No. No, you can't...)




BREAKING NEWS: SAVE THIS TIE FROM DESTRUCTION!

AVAILABLE FOR A REASONABLE NUMBER OF DOLLARS. OTHERWISE, IT GOES TO THE CHOPPING BLOCK!

(...where it will emerge a bloody pocket square).
