Lot of interesting things were posted in the past couple of days!
I had the day off yesterday, so I decided to go to Vienna. The Dalai Lama was here this week. Anyway, some of the stores had insane pricing - I honestly thought it had to be a joke. Most of the clothes were in fine condition and I had to pass on a lot of things due to the price. I don't know how they do it, but almost every single item of quality or name had an "appropriate" price. I found bespoke shirts from small Italian makers: €20-25/piece. Suits? They had a number of makers that went from €60-200. I even found pants from Gap and Banana Republic (we don't have either) for €25! I did find a number (well over 100 in total) tuxedos throughout the day. I am not sure if an orchestra/theater donated them or what. Some weren't great but many were quality and from local Viennese shops. Some were mohair. Anyway, I actually bought a tuxedo earlier in the week so I passed on them.
Things I passed: Etro tie (light damage), PRL double breasted blazer by Corneliani, Burberry trench and a number of shirts
One interesting item that I found was a VanHeusen shirt. I had never actually seen one, but I checked it online to see if it was the same. It was, but with something that I thought was weird: a royal warrant. Was VanHeusen a good brand at one time??
Things I found:
Ties (not available)
Hitl trousers with fabric by Vitale Barberis Canonico (not available). I know Hitl, but I don't know anything about Barberis? Well made and nice
Porta di Mare shirt (not available)
Zegna Sport short sleeved polo, size M (AVAILABLE) Colors look washed out in the photo, in person it looks great
Emenegildo Zegna short sleeved button down, mint Size 40, 15 3/4 (Available)
I probably should have left this, but it was kind of neat. Yves Saint Laurent long sleeved shirt. size M 39/40, linen/cotton 55/45
Josephe Homme cord jacket (not available)
Trend by Corneliani cotton jacket. I know it's Trend and not mainline, but I liked the patch pockets and it wasn't marked with a price. After I brought it up there, the woman said "Ahh, Corneliani, €30" I don't know why, but I just said "yeah, that's fine." So, now I own it and it's nowhere near my size. It's an EU size 50R and AVAILABLE. Obviously that works higher in USD, but I thought I'd throw a picture up in case someone was hunting for a nice summer jacket.
