It's Isaia. Orphan though?

Sweet again!  Orphan yes - but solid charcoal gray 2-button; believe it can be worn with contrasting trousers.

There are a couple nice looking suits like this sitting at a thrift I go to, but I never checked the label. They're priced around $40-50 so I didn't bother looking too hard.

$40-50 for a suit at a thrift store?  Jeebus.  I've been to GW's in southern Tennessee and they price sport coats at $25 no matter what brand, which I thought was very steep for a thrift.

I'd go grab those suits if they're Isaia - I see that one sold on the 'bay for $158.  I had another Loro/Cremieux/Italy a couple months ago that I sold, never bothered to double-check the tag.  My bad, but now I have Corneliani and Isaia memorized - only 30 or 40 more to go!

That's something I've never been very clear on...what makes this unwearable as an orphan?  Color?  Cut/style?  Something else?

They just had a nice little throwdown over on AA about this......

http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?130534-Bargain-or-bust

which led to the creation of this thread.....

http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?131212-The-sport-coat-or-orphan-thread

Solid gray coats, that are not of the camel or cashmere variety just scream orphan to me. Save for possibly just the lightest shade of gray. I have seen men out and about wearing that color as a sportcoat, but to me it just looks like they lost the pants. Having said that if you list it right you will probably get a few bidders on the Isaia part alone. Just don't expect to make a killing.

Hah - good read over on AAAC!  Thanks for the links - folks get pretty serious over there.

I have learned that I have to list an orphan suit coat 4 or 5 times before it sells, but mine have eventually (maybe just lucky), and not for a whole lot, so not expecting much on this one either.

Thank you for your insight and reply.

Wow!  Even with the damage, it sold nicely.  I'll have to "borrow" your wording about mine being a 'staple color and easily matched.'  biggrin.gif

This is the Canada Day long weekend in Canada so have been taking it easy and enjoying myself with non-thrift pleasures.
