be careful on that boglioli stuff guys, it all looks stained to me, like some sort of water damage or something. probably isn't going to show up well in the photos but might be super plain in real life :/ incredible prices for k-jackets though

The Gerry puffed coat I found the other week has the same instructions. Maybe that's just how they did it in the 70's?

Found some fancy, woolen, plaid trousers.

What do I wear with them?

post #58838 of 117839
I wear my tartan trousers with solid colored turtle neck sweaters. Very 1968.

Has anyone ever been hitting the stores and come upon something you've donated?
I'd dropped some shirts off in a charity donation box at supermarket parking lot. This week as I was flipping through shirts at a GW I came upon a CT shirt that was vaguely familiar.
I was tempted to buy it to give it a good home. happy.gif
Happy New year!

I'm waffling on the blue one.  Also, I don't feel you should be sizing up. The Boglioli Coat I picked up on the bay in a size 50 is too large for me.  I would go for a 48 and I'm 5' 11" 155 lbs.

 

Secondly, how can you tell those are K-Jackets?  There isn't a strand of colored buttons attached at the collar and you don't know what the label on the inside says.  Even so, they're a great price for COAT level jackets. 

 

Edit:  Bought the light blue/chambray in a 48.  There's one mark on the back that looks like a small abrasion, but that's the style these K Jackets go for anywho.  Looks like it is in fact a K given that some neighboring sizes in the same color are clearly marked as such.  There are some COAT options up there for the same price.

400 Nice to know re Boglioli levels. 

 

Is there just "coat" and "K-jacket," or are there more?

I've since edited my post after looking at more sizes than just 48.  All three 48s that were available had no clear distinction of level. 

From what I've seen on high end sites, the K Jackets often have a finer material composition.  In FW, lots of cashmere while in SS, Silk/Linen dominate. That said, this "K Jacket" that I just ordered is Cotton/Poly.  That's fine since I'm going to be rough on it.

 


 

Here's a post from another thread that will lay it out far better than I could.

I know there have been a lot of questions on Boglioli jackets in the past too, I've had a lot of these jackets over the past 10 years so I think I can help.
Their trademark line, Coat, started in the 1990’s as neo-Italian take on Neapolitan tailoring; they made the jacket slimmer due to fabric and construction and used a special “tinto in capo” (garment dyeing) process to give the jacket a vintage look…basically responding to trends seen in jeans and shirts at this time. Worn in. Distressed. Coat is their mainstay, and in many ways the zenith of their production and obsession with materials, especially cotton, and recently more with linen and silk.
Due to the success of this, Boglioli started to experiment (pre-wash, dyeing, etc) with other fabrics like (combed) cashmere and wool…and the K Jacket was born (2003 I believe). For the most part, I think the construction of these two jackets are pretty similar, although almost always I like the touch of a K Jacket more…it drapes better, it possesses that tactile sensation that you can’t quite put into words but you understand…I love them. And I hear Boglioli doesn’t make a big distinction between the two but I think there is.
Boglioli also has a standard label for some of their partnerships (with Guabella, tailors, department stores other than Barneys’ who they make a Coat and K Jacket for) which is all over the place. Whereas most Coat and K Jacket lines have very little or no shoulder padding (“senza spallina”), spring/summer editions usually have no canvassing (but still wonderful structure I might add), these often have more padding in shoulder, often don’t have working buttons, and are often fully canvassed. I’ve even seen one that was fused, which I think was a bad move, to put their name on the jacket. I also saw a cardigan-blazer in textured cotton that was absolutely amazing. But in nonrefundable situation I would not take the risk.
There are a few other lines, Dover and Wight which came in late 2000’s I..the wight concept was for Japan and was based on a total unconstructed form. The Dover was a bit more constructed and formal or elegantly styled…but sometimes in Jersey. So still no real structure to the line. Both these lines are discontinued and but have become Dover 2G line (which I have not seen).
Basically, I think anything outside of Coat and K Jacket can be a little experimental- can be amazing but often a bit off. A lot of people dismiss Boglioli as a trend or casual jacket, but if you look at the construction, attention to detail…it’s really a kind of revolution in jacket making. I travel a lot and my Isaia, Zegna crossover, Luciano Barbera’s don’t hold up as well as this. There is a real beauty and practicality to a prewashed distressed material...
