Sadly no - tag reads all silk, and the fleurs de lis are definitely sewed on.

So thrift fit question - is there anything about a boys blazer that would make it not suitable for a man? I recently thrifted a really nice cashmere blend Hickey Freeman "His First" model jacket that fits me even though it's a boys 18. Is there some sort of difference in how men's vs. boy's jackets are cut that is going to make it look awful that I'm not thinking of?

Not sure how rare it is, but this is referred to as rain camo.  Currently in vogue.

Hmm,good pass I think. Have no clue what that is. I'm leaning towards German and likely dates from the late 70's to 80's. Not valuable as far as I know.

I think you know tiger stripe but if not, this is what you want. There are repros too, you want either a white label or a black size stamp. If it has a green label with black text at the collar, it's a repro.

Not too excited about the Truzzi, but this Loro Piana is gorgeous. Since you and I seem to be body doubles when you get bored with it send it my way :D

I've got a cashmere and wool, boys size 18, navy, BB triple patch pocket sport coat that fits great! The buttoning stance is a little high, but nothing I give two fucks about. Scooped that one from the Capt' icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Dan - that LP is grail status. a navy blue (I assume) 100% cashmere - or a 70/30 vneck is top 5 essential items to have. Ive got one that will likely never leave my side, they are the best.

Is that a 50? smile.gif
