Half price sale on the 23rd. Will hold out for haul to flip.
Ended up with a beautiful custom jacket made in Saudi Arabia and this Zegna wool/rayon navy blue herringbone jacket with metal Zegna buttons. 52R. Made in Mexico.
Looking to get a date/decade for it - vintage or not? Thanks, Vlassis

I usually pass on Z Zegnas because Zegnas mainlines are pretty common around here.
Ahhh dude, that suck, man!

from this interview:
Not sure if the offer still stands, or how you would even go about contacting them, but...
Bookmarked and gonna print this out when I go visit him with a buttload of vintage Kiton suits.

When i'm looking at suits i go by a few things, feel...if it feels like sandpaper i don't even bother. then i look at label and where it was made. Made in Italy, England , USA or Canada and I perk up.
I think Z Zegna suits do well, just like Hugo Boss suits does way better than HB SCs.

Nice first catch - Pretty rare find. Welcome to the coven.
Nice kicks! Thanks for the non-pic, you can see a lot of that type of stuff at "peopleofwalmart.com"
I believe that Dino Baldini is a mens store in New York (Madison Avenue maybe). Could be a house brand - check of manufacturer labels. Welcome - nice first post.
Hey man, we are not witches!!!
