It's a sleeveless blouse with a matching buttonless cardigan-type thing

This is fine when dealing with high-end men's clothing stuff (tailored, dress shirts, trousers, etc). but the high fashion world is a whole different ball-game. Most MC rules are thrown out the window.

That thing is insane find though! Wow!

Anybody recognize this label? I've cross checked it with all the ones I've got in the stable and the small database I've compiled with no luck. I know I've seen it before though.

Here are a variety of older Brionis, some thrifted, some not. As you can hopefully see, they're all pretty different.

EDIT -- Actually, all of those were thrifted. BUT I did compare them to some of my family's older ties (who knew!) and found a genuine counterpart to each.

Thanks noob! I'm still iffy for the reason mentioned below.

Yip, those are the ones I had. I think KP is in doubt because it had the double Brioni printed under the fold. I've never seen it like that either. puzzled.gif

Yeah, that's my main cause of concern.

We will see, if no one can definitely chime in by the end of the day, I'll probably sacrifice one of the three for a burn test. Thanks for all your help so far guys!

A good idea nowadays with smartphones, is to keep a folder with the good maker labels in them. I have about 20 or so photos of the labels and when looks familiar I just bust out my phone to scan the pictures quick. This way you also see them more often and will recognize them without even looking in the future.

I can't get a good look at that North Face, but it may be fake. Anyone else suspicious?

For the uninitiated, If I'm low on space is there a good way to elevate the TT and keep it above the receiver while reducing heat buildup?

You could always slap some rubberplasticy legs inbetween. Think http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-4-Inch-Self-Adhesive-Rubber-RUBBERFEET/dp/B00032Q30Q but taller so as to clear more space to breathe.

Nice! How you have a summer sweater SET! Very desirable! Good for you, great find!

Monitor stands would be a creative solution.
