Hello everybody I apologize for my cryptic messages and absence lately but the crisis is finally resolved, I think...
I will be back in the field this weekend when I proxy something for gmh and go to the tailor for a final fitting for the tux.
Here is a little breakdown of what was going on for those who care... My sister is adopted and has a history of acting out. Recently she has been acting out more and more severely and we learned her birth mother was bipolar. Despite doing all we can as a family to support her, she has proved to need more exert care than we can give. Two weeks ago she made another suicide attempt this one ending with a trip to the hospital. After that she was transferred to a psychiatric crisis center for about a week in an attempt to better analyze her condition. In this place we were allowed to visit her daily for about an hour and she seemed to be doing better. Despite this the experts dedicded she needed ever more care than they could give and she was transferred a few days ago to a special boarding school (out of state:/ ) without being able to coming home. This has been a huge stress for her and our family which has only been compounded by school and ap tests and our financial situation and the funding for my mothers job being cut. Anyway I want you all to know our family has a lot of hope that this will help her and stalking this thread has really helped my cope throughout the past weeks and months so thank you all for that.

Thanks! I thought it might be, too.

On this note, I did find some info recently about the makers history for Oxxford shirts, but damned if I can't find it now. Like Spoo says, Kiton for a bit, then some other Euro maker I thought. MTM are in the states. In any case here's a quick dirty pic of mine. Sorry, it's been in a bag for 3 months (found it just before my incident.) Construction and fit seem stellar, though my experience with that level is very limited. Only tag anywhere is "Oxxford Clothes."

 

Ian: Prayers for your sis and family, bud.

Picked this up. Remind me again what the cursive writing on the blue label means? I think it was discussed at one point.

RL Signature. I believe that was pre-purple label and was between Polo Italy quality and Purple Label. Good to own/trade here, not so good for flipping

Thanks, and I was thinking the same thing as far as it being too esoteric to flip on eBay, although it is a nice houndstooth with patch pockets, so it might do okay. It's un-vented, and fits me everywhere except the sleeves. From my first look it appears as though the sleeves are maxed out in terms of length. Maybe I was wrong, going to check again after work :/

Dior knock off? I'm really confused by this - it has the Dior homme silver "Paris" hang tag and some other details, but fabrique in Italy + made in china = WTF

Nice find. There have been a handful of others, including some cashmere knits from Nataku (I think) and a navy paisley I found. Mine was manufactured by Gitman. There's a video on YouTube of a tie making demo in the Gitman factory, and they're making an Oxxford tie.

Interesting....how would I tell.

Only the made in Italy Oxxford shirts are Kiton. Most of the rest are US made.
