Some finds as of late:

Brooks Bros Makers, Skinny Vintage Brioni (N/A), Gucci (N/A)

 

 

 

 

 

Talbott 7 fold and 2x RLPL (N/A) 

 

 

Testoni in my size!! Unfortunately the previous owner cut out the leather under the tongue (who takes a knife to $400 shoes?), but they fit and were cheap. 

 

AE Polo SZ 9.5E Available

Man, the last few pages are arguably the best since this thread started. Unreal finds guys.

I picked up a PRL a couple hundred pages back that turned out to be made by Lorenzini, easily on par with any other high end shirt I've come across.

Tell me gents, is this the Lanvin I'm looking for?

I swear I remember someone saying that if it has "paris" on the tag it's worth picking up. It was made in the usa and details seem to suggest it's high end. Did I do a good job?


Also picked up two pairs of these in 34. Details to follow, later...

Dammit, I thought that was the good label. Good thing goodwill takes returns

2x Etro (Blue - 16.5, Yellow - 15)

 

2x Borrelli (Gray - 16.5, Black - 16, both super soft flannel)

 

2x Luciano Barbera Cable Knit Button Sweaters (No size, I would estimate 24 p2p or there abouts)

Older Cashmere Cucinelli (mock?) Turtleneck (No size, but big)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Oh, and I won these on Ebay. Been wanting a pair for awhile:

 

 

Everything other than the jeans, the shoes and the tie is available.

Damn Cotton, loving those borrellis. Nicely done. Those shoes are icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Kids, don't drink and post (re: my post last night). Also, when did the 99cent only store start carrying used ties?

The "good" ties I've found have said Paris. I think current good label may just say "Lanvin". Their newer logo is that lady or whatever. Pretty sure Made in US is a bad sign for Lanvin as well. Their good stuff should be more fashion forward, and unlikely to be like that herringbone jacket you found. Someone correct me if this is wrong.

Here's a few tips for Lanvin-seekers:

 

- Rather than examining the Lanvin tag, look at the maker tag. Newer good Lanvin is made by Caruso, older by Canali. Photos of both of those tags can be found in the Labels thread.  If the tag matches, you've got a winner.

- Do the canvas pinch test like you would with any piece you're not familiar with. If it's fused, toss it back.

- If you're in a rush, just look at the country of origin. If it's the U.S., don't waste your time.

 

I am interested those pants though, if they have a 33 or 34 inseam.

Thanks for the advice. As I said I'll be returning it. As for the pants, I've yet to measure them. I'll let you know.
