i left this behind, because of the damage. where do you guys draw the line on damage? would someone be interested in a jacket like this? it looked dated, but i'm still learning. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Welcome. You've already taken the initiative to begin reading, so thanks very much for that.

Answering your first question, for shirts, most of us use this method, referred to here simply as "The Method." http://putthison.com/post/441812762/cleaningshirts
I am in the process of experimenting to find a similar method for cleaning the lining on wool trou without damaging the wool. I have several permutations, and simply not enough time at the moment to run the actual experiment. Stay tuned.

As to the Brioni, most holes can be rewoven. But that's not cheap, and you need a specialized service. (Fabric Reweavers USA is one such service. There's one in LA, too). A hole in that area, right next to the faux button hole, will be particularly troublesome. Also, if that's a solid gray or pinstripe jacket with no pants (aka, an orphan), it's almost certainly not worth it.

Thanks again for doing your homework.

Awesome! Wish I would find something like this! fing02%5B1%5D.gif

Just wondering, but is cashmere really a raise from 14 micron super 180s? Plus its a two button front, more recent than 3? boxing%5B1%5D.gif

Guess I'll have to do better next time, that cashmere jacket is sexy!

My super 180's chocolate brown suit will have to do for now, poor me.

Hope you noticed the pictures with the circles in them. Maybe some minor runs or something.

I did but it was only on one that I bought. The other Kiton and Borrelli had no pics with circles. I'll take a chance for $35 anyway. If nothing else I can resell them for what I paid.

Our Legacy linen shirt that I'm pretty sure is new. XL Available.
Left behind so much stuff though... So many crazy SWD brands, too bad they knew what they had...

Pics later

Kind of a cool blast from the past, and they seem to actually be a somewhat desirable collector's item.

I don't know anything about them but these are a very cool find!

I honestly think they're about the same level of awesome-ness. Both Kiton. One is a recent, solid color 14 Micron suit. The other is a pure cashmere sportcoat which is done in a killer windowpane pattern. I'd love to have both in my closet if they fit me.

post #78478 of 112360


I've been working CRAZY hours for the last few months (256 hours in the last 4 weeks) so my thrifting has been limited.

I did snag this a couple of weeks ago. It's an Eterna Matic 3000.

It needed a little cleaning and a new band but I'd say it was worth the $6.99 I paid.
