Your Brionis have me befuddled.  The styling and quality look good, but you're right that something about the labels looks so off...especially on the "B".  Here are my own Brioni labels from a big recent haul for comparison, none of which look similar to yours.

 

EDIT:  Also, I'd be very wary of the stitching on the label patch of your first Brioni - every "Roma" line Brioni I've seen has the "xxxx" stitching around the label, which yours in the first picture lacks.  Just IMO, don't know it to be gospel.  Like you suggested, it might be a dating thing, and the more recent Brioni might not do that stitching anymore for all I know. 

 

Also, that Kiton is pure tits.

How old are these Brioni's?  They seem authentic, but the labels are different from what I've seen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are really old but authentic.

Word.

That Kiton is FUCKING AWESOME, though. I wish it were about 8 sizes smaller.
post #49161 of 121326

Had my first real "score" today when thrifting. Found an old Corneliani SC for 8.99 in my size which I picked up for a bar hoping jacket that I don't need to worry about. I saw a few newer Paul Stuart SCs in 44S but passed on them. Found 4 pairs of Nordstrom Cedar shoe trees in size xl and L.

 

But the real find was a pair of very lightly worn (maybe 5 times total) Alden 686 in brown. Size 10D for $7.99.

 

Sadly, I wear a 10C so they are a tad roomy. I'm not sure if I should keep them or pass them along. Anyone know if a cobbler could do anything to help make them tighter?

I am digging almost all of those patterns no matter how old. I am particularly fond of the first two SCs.

You could put an insole in them to make them fit tighter

Try an Insole as well as a slightly thicker sock, see how that does first.

post #49166 of 121326
first time in a thrift store in months (been really busy with work with the refinance boom happening) and i snaked a mint pair of Alden for brooks brothers shell cordovan tassel loafers. Unfortunately they're a bit small @ 9.5D lol also passed on a near new pair of burgundy AE McAllisters in 13ee. can go back if there's any interest.

I LOL'd at that one, don't worry. wink.gif I do think that replacing a cloth cord would be a must. My dad replaced the PLUG on the one he has, but left the cord - it never moves so he's okay with that. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for something that looks good and is in good shape... I really like the idea of conversation-piece at the office.

LOL those Brioni tux shirts always give me a hoot. I've only ever seen one IRL but it sold well, that tail is awesome too.

Re the Hermes tie: Okay, um, I've had one of these (the red Faconee H) in my closet for 2 years... what the hell makes it so awesome or rare? Seeing a completed like that makes me think maybe I should just liquidate my Hermes ties... I'm much more into Kitons and Borrellis and other often-found-in-multi-folds nowadays.

Speaking of multi-folds, nobody commented on the patterns of the two I thrifted: what say ye, keep or try to move 'em on? Photos spoilered below. Hint hint, nudge, nudge. wink.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Holy cow, that's an old label. goneawol, you find those here? Never seen a stitch of Kiton in the wild though I've heard of it popping up in Cleveland and even Delaware. Then again, RLPL isn't sold here either and I've found several bits of it now and again.

I take it you've been pretty active lately... I'm just the opposite! Maybe you're the one I'm going in behind. devil.gif

Thanks for the response andro. I'm with you on the B looking weird and the weird stitching on the one. My original thought was they might be pre 80s or something before "roman style" was added or something, but I know very little about brioni labels. These are fully canvassed and have the brioni lining so I assumed they were real. They also have the correct size tag.

awesome stuff gents. i'm jelly.

My wife had to travel to Chicago late last week and stopped at a thrift. my phone rings...

"Is Croft and Barrow any good?"
"NO". silence....
"how about Turnbury?" silence...
"NO". more silence.
"here's a nice shirt. rufus. any good?"
"NO.... I think you should go look in the womens stuff".

(at least she tried). shog[1].gif
