Usually, in my experience.

That's what I thought... I'll send pics BNT, but I think they're women's...

The local gentry would have been quite pleased to have genuine vicuna branded/from the local top-end menswear store.

Yeah, I hate the way things are today--all the vicuna I find has Merona labels...

Also true. The one recent trip I took down that way there wasn't a ton in my size, but I snagged what I could and for that purpose it was certainly a good deal.

Been holding off on posting this one for quite some time. Found this spring/summer sometime. Not currently available, long gone....but not far from home. 

 

Vintage 50's Agostino Caraceni Tweed, with shotgun shell buttons. I bought it for the buttons, didn't even realize what I had at first.
