Love that Frank's RedHot sauce ad next to the Copeg ad. Had no clue it was that old.

Here is the tag from the LB Sartoriale

It looks very close to the Attolini in the labels thread, but slightly different, does this connote age? Also, the content is clearly hand written, any significance to this? IT says 55% Wo 10% Se 20% B.Wk 15% Kwm. Im assuming this is 55% wool, 10% silk, 15% cashmere? and wtf would 20% B.wk be? Given feel im thinking linen, but I have no idea.

Navy. Horn toggles. Decent shape. No holes but some wear to the wool. I'll PM you when I pick it up.

Haven't found the answers yet but searching did help me find this interesting, if not incomplete, resource.

Thanks! It's one of two that I own and I get more use out of them than I would have expected. I don't mind the buttons that I have on them now, but I considered putting the same buttons that I have on my navy cashmere odd jacket...smoked MOP. I like the look for fall/winter jackets.

cheers.gif That's most definitely Attolini icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif however I don't know how to tell the age and the hand written stuff is pretty cool. I think that is probably mid-2000s based on this specific Attolini tag. I have also seen Attolini for Sartorio tags (the small, wide rectangular tag) on LB Sartoriale jackets too but I am not sure on the timeline for these tags.

I have had a couple of the Attolini made LB Sartoriales and the nice thing is they don't show their age. They're always pretty traditional in cut and button stance, etc. I have no idea what that fabric composition is, but I think you're pretty close. Nice score.

Arent student loans suppose to have low interest rates...I think all mine were under 3% which at the time was cheap money.

I just picked one up spam[1].gif  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130784296547 and I know Typhoid Jones sold one recently for good money in his Etsy store.

The Bush Administration, in its infinite (infantile?) wisdom, determined that the interest rates on Government loans needed to be increased from the low 2s to 6.5%. Private lenders - which used to lend at 2.5-4% - followed suit and increased their interest rates to 6.5% or higher.

It looks spot-on for the Zegna soft tag; however, not sure they ever made anything in Mexico? Even Soft is made in Europe.

Yes, Z Zegna and Bolgheri, this jacket is from the same time period as the Zegna Soft

That just seems unreal to me.. When a blazer at the thrift store costs around 10-15, and on ebay I had to re-list the same harris tweed blazer 3 times just to get 29 for it.. Not worth the time or effort at all. I found a nice brooks brothers wool blazer today, looked up ebay completed auctions, the most one went for was 39.. Still, not worth it at all.
