I saw a woman trying on pants outside the dressing room today. Had several pair just lined up on the floor.

 

Then I found a pair of Loro Piana shoes, first time seeing that. Interesting stuff.

 

Cop! A few of my Zegnas are made in Switzerland. They are nice stuff IMO. I mean, nothing Kiton/Isaia/Neapolitan grade. I've seen Gucci and TF that are made in Switzerland as well. That's actually expected since Zegna make for both brands.

 

Pics for it didn't happen...shog[1].gif

 

What?! We demand pics!

Ray - Label was black lettering on white background if I recall correctly.  Lanvin is the one faked/diffused brand I still struggle with sometimes (unlike Christian Dior/Dior).  Quality seemed okay, nothing crazy.  It was near a handful of older Alain Figaret shirts so I thought it might be decent, but possibly old.

 

Nat - definitely picked up the Loro Piana shoes.  They are the "Open Walk" suede chukka, still on sale on the website for $850 which is slightly higher than my purchase price of $10.  Not in mint condition, so I'll get pics once I get these cleaned up.

 

Klobber - I don't use "made in" as a be all, end all, but I do think of it as a nice shortcut, like the brand name itself.  For me it is much easier to tell quality on a jacket or tie than it is on a shirt. Still learning every day.

Was there a method to potentially remove or reduce shine from fabric? Picked up an otherwise great looking Prada shirt that I'm guessing was improperly ironed.

Also grabbed a NWT Fred Perry XL button down shirt and some probably NWOT PRL cotton pants for myself. Pics later.

Can someone remind me of the maker? No other tags...

Nah. I don't have time to go through all the pants when I have my 2 1/2 year old with me.

I'm horrible at this, but it looks like Kiton to me

Anyone have any more thoughts on this? I looked up the RN number and it just comes up as Jack Victor. It's well made... Dunno. That almost looks like Caruso, but wrong continent.

Saw that last week and didn't have a clue what it was, I tried to ebay look it up but didn't see much sold.  One with a broken turntable sold for $365 so there's probably money to be made but I thought it was risky.

Jack Victor and Sameulsohn are two different companies.

I've heard this trick works for wool stuff such as suits and sportcoats. Might be worth a shot on a shirt.

Cool, that's what I was trying. Making some difference on a small spot, we'll see how it works.

I thought Jack Victor was a store... Maybe I've got that wrong.
