Why can't these stores have the same products you are finding. I live in Dallas, TX and can even find one of the labels you listed above.

Unfortunately I didn't take too close a look - I just registered "too small", and moved on. I didn't recognize the name (which seems to garner mixed SF reviews, now that I look) so I assumed they wouldn't be of interest to anyone here. . If anyone reading this is near the Value Village in Bellingham, WA - go take a look. I won't be back there for a few months.post #70448 of 1387285/12/13 at 11:16amQuote:Originally Posted by col1
New here and was looking for a bit of advice. I have always wanted a canali suit and managed to pick one up in like new condition for £40/$60
It is not my size but figured I could get altered. I am taking it tomorrow to a shop to check out how much it will cost but basically I need the trousers taken up by an inch and 2 inches at waist, and need sleeves, jacket length and sides taken in.
I know it won't be cheap but wondered at what point would you guys say the cost of alterations would out weigh just selling it on and trying to get something needing less alterations?
What you have there is a suit that's all around too big for you (except, it sounds like, at the shoulders). For the cost of all those alterations on top of what the suit already cost you, you'd be better off selling it and buying one on eBay or the Marketplace that's more in line with your measurements, or offering it up for a trade here.
Pre-owned Canali suits on eBay cost anywhere from $70-200 on average. The cost of your suit + alterations would very likely be more than that.post #70449 of 1387285/12/13 at 11:25amQuote:

What DM7 said. I've seen people pull amazing stuff out of DFW. It's a big city with lots of money and a good number of shops selling high-end stuff. You just need to work harder.post #70453 of 1387285/12/13 at 12:47pm
Cross-posting from the Vintage Thread
Found a tuxedo jacket the other night. It was custom made by Leopald Morse in Boston Massachusetts. It is dated 1/14/1941 and was made for Mayor Maurice Tobin, mayor of Boston from 1938-1945. I found a photo online of Tobin along side of Massachusetts Attorney General Paul Denver at the Democratic Inaugural Dinner. Paul Denver was in office from 1935-1941. By cross referencing the data with the years of the Democratic Inaugural Dinners for FDR, (1933, 1937, 1941, 1945), there is only one Inaugural Dinner where these two men would have been seen together while holding those offices. Just so happens, the Inaugural dinner is held January 19th (my birthday) the night before the actual Inauguration. While I can't say definitively, it would appear that the tuxedo I found was made for this event and delivered to Mayor Tobin just 5 days earlier. Wouldn't you wear your new suit to the big event? I would.
I have tracked down the owner of a 1941 Inaugural Dinner Menu and Seating Chart and am awaiting a response to see if I can place these two at the table.
Tobin is on the left.
