Scroll down to the bottom for those info.

Regarding your over sized pants, I soooooooooooo regret not picking up some recent MTM Sammy pants for bigger boys, size 50. facepalm.gif

I should say (and I need to put this over on the other thread) union tags are helpful, but they are only a general guide. Earlier tags were sometimes used after their replacements had been introduced if a particular tailor or factory had a bunch of the old ones laying around. The only thing a union tag will tell you for sure is that the garment wasn't made prior to when they started using that label.

In other words, you can use a union tag to establish a not-earlier-than date of manufacture, but not a precise date or a not-later-than date.

Found three Charvet recently...were you in Western CT?

Brag only. My single best find to date (I know it isn't crazy like some others but I'm new and in MN struggling against Nataku)

Mint Zegna suit. Single pleat and cuff, my size. Needs a little taking in in the body but otherwise perfect! Navy with brown stripe (much less obvious than in pic) in light flannel.

Sorry man. Where did you learn about the mix up? That would actually work out in my favor if all my 34x36s are actually 36x34.

Why didnt someone ask me to join and you could have gotten $20.

 

Just grabbed the last pair in 28x32!!!!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifhttps://us.venteprivee.com/main/#/product/10727/1053798

I like the really dark wash, trying to figure out why the 1947 and 1954 are more expensive?? Dont know much about jeans, can someone give me a quick 2 line overview?

I don't know anything about LVC, but I only ever see bloggers/forum posters talk about the 1947 and 1954 models, so they're probably more in demand.

They couldn't even find a shirt that closely matched his size. Either he's a dwarf or they just grabbed the closest things at hand.

But it's a Giorgio Cerruti! You just don't see those everyday. Especially one made of 65% polyester.
