A little late but odds are its Attolini or Partenopea. It looks fairly modern. Any chance there is a small tag hiding in the cell phone pocket? Also what do the sleeve button holes look like? Are they faux stitched but stitched all the way through to the inside of the sleeve (like you could cut them and make them functional?)

Oh yeah, I hit like 7 Stores in Little Rock, AR the past 2 days cause I was seeing my little brother, and all I go was this shitty t-shirt. BADASS sportcoat. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








There are NO makers tags frown.gif is there any possible way I could figure out who made this? Since no content, Im guessing that its a predominantly linen/silk blend. It may just be super baller linen. 42R

Ugh, I went back to my local GW this weekend, and ties are now $6 each.  I looked through them, and they were all unwearable ties.

Where I'm from, ties are usually priced at $1.99 unless they recognize the brand and charge it $14.99 or higher for some fake Channel tie. In the more expensive area the ties are $3.48 a piece.


Measurements, please!!! Dibs if fits!

 

At my local SA, each suit is $40 and up--nothing like 75 Euros, but most if not all of the suits are really dated and often of poor quality.

It's nice, I know, but I would rather dig through the racks looking for Gucci and other labels. The employees are generally very nice and polite and one woman even holds stuff for me. She figured out awhile ago that I only go for the well-made stuff and she knows her brands as well as anyone and prices things accordingly. It's nice though, she finds house brands that were made in Italy by some of our favorite Italian houses and holds them back for me to check.
In fact, there is a brown wool/cotton jacket from an expensive clothing store in a brownish color that is sitting at a store that is in great condition and well made. I couldn't place the tag, but it's made in Italy. Marked at €20 or €25, but I'll get pictures if anyone is interested. About an EU 40 iirc.
They range widely here. It's up to the employees in most of our shops and if they recognize something, it will be more. Hugo Boss is plentiful and generally 2x the normal price. In Vienna, one chain of stores is awful with pricing. Every suit is €75 no matter how old or cheap it originally was. Other stores mark everything the same price. One store even recognized Brioni, which surprised me. It's really hit or miss.

 

It turns out that they have raised the prices at my local GW since I last went--ties are now, as stated above, $6 each, suits are now $20 each, and shirts, while nominally $6 each had many tagged at $12 (PRL, LRL, J.Crew, and the like).  The only prices that seemed really good were those for outerwear--$10-$14 per coat.

Meanwhile, the boutique GW has Nautica et al. Didn't bother looking at the prices there for ties, but they are advertising $9.99 and up for all goods.

I know! 

I've tried it on half a dozen times hoping that it would actually fit. cry.gif

Any single pair of these pants would be awesome, but all of them at once?  Boy.

You've heard it plenty of times, but wow, that's an insane score.

This is one of the those places that caters to the H&M crowd, so nothing worth mentioning, although, this is the place I found a pair of RLPL trousers for Brianpore about a month ago. Anyhoo, I didn't find anything in the mens section, so I decide to check out the woman's section. I nearly shat myself when I saw this. RLPL double breasted greatcoat made out of 100% cashmere, sick hounds-tooth with purple window-pane over-check. Ticket pocket, vented, huge peak lapels and large horn buttons. Pretty much one of the nicest pieces of clothing I've ever handled. This is a few years old to be sure, but my shitty google-fu indicates that these retailed for 3-4K when new. Unavailable at the moment. Anybody know who made this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Found this on the inside breast pocket, suede pouch with extra horn buttons. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Then I found this, two garments down from the jacket. PRL by Corneliani hacking jacket. Amazing pattern, real leather buttons, neck latch, ticket pocket, suede elbow patches and double vented. Also a 46R. This gent had some good taste. Also N/A for the moment.





 

Ant the best part is, after the discounts from the stuff I traded in, I payed less then $10!!!!!! They had the RLPL posted as Polo Ralph Lauren. biggrin.gif

Is everyone here thats scooping up 10 blazers at a time actually wearing them? Because they don't sell for crap on e bay. Im trying to unload the ones I have for dirt cheap so I don't have to deal with them anymore.

Depends if they are Kiton or Pierre Cardin... what are you trying to sell and at what price makes all the difference.

I believe it's an old Zegna label.  My understanding is that Bolgheri is a cheaper Zegna-affiliated brand.

First, damn we're going to hit 50,000 in a day or two.

Two, was at a conference all weekend so my boss let me come in late today. Naturally, I hit a thrift on my way in. For the first time ever, I picked up some pocket squares: PRL, Vitaliano Pincaldi (totally unfamiliar with this brand), and an unbranded made in Italy paisley. Left a vintage BB made in England duffle coat (XL) that was a little too pricey ($35), but I'll probably pick that up on my way home.

Thesehave been sitting at my local goodwill, in an 11 D . Haven't picked up because I know venetians aren't too popular. Pm me if you want to proxy.

Picked up the vacca's from yesterday, details to come tonight.
