Doesn't Corneliani make Polo's stuff?

post #89837 of 113286
-12 below air temp (-30 wind chill) and snow wasn't enough to keep me inside today. Apparently it wasn't enough for the rest of Minnesota either. Stores were full of families with crying babies, guys trying on suits who haven't discovered that deodorant exists and other usual thrift store folk. Still managed to find a few things.

AE Park Ave. 9 1/2 D




More ties





Collector's Edition of The Lord of the Rings. Mint condition and these seem to do well on the bay. Sadly mine is missing the shell/sleeve thing.




Some gas $$




And then there is this....

Size Eu 50 R. Side vented. Surgeon's cuffs. Trousers are flat front and cuffed.

@Snoogz, check the pockets. Is there a label in any of them? The corneliani for PRL pants and jacket I've found had similar labels, but yours just look like they're NWT. I think my pants had a tag in the back pocket or at the back of the waist under the waist hem (can't think of what else to call it!).

Well done man! I found a pair of their pants and I love them. Just had to have them lengthened slightly, but they're amazing!

The Italian stuff, yes...Caruso and Cantarelli (which would include St. Andrews) as well IIRC.

Yes But found no Corneliani maker tag anywhere.  All tags were shown in photograph.  They're so badass, and would love to find out more about em.

Start with a suede eraser if you have any bad stains (e.g., dirt); you can find these anywhere. Then I use the Saphir suede cleaner, which is basically a shampoo. Let dry and the brush with a suede brush. Then treat with Saphir Renovateur suede spray, Saphir Super Invulner waterproofing spray, or just plain Terrago suede protector. 

 

Bottom line you need a suede eraser, which you can pick up anywhere. I'm not familiar with the range of suede shampoos, but I've had good luck with Saphir. Then all you really need is Terrago, which you can find all over, to waterproof and protect against stains. 

 

I have a pair of Peal suede chukka boots (crazy sale on them at the moment; warning, run narrow) with a Dainite sole and it's been my go to wet weather shoe. Combination of the rubber sole and the Terrago makes it perfect when there is rain out. (No, I'm not standing or running through puddles.)

I have a pair of gray flannels with the same tags. I figure if it's Corneliani, it's got to have the tag. Instead, like yours, it has the blue fabric/care tag on the pocket. Great question; would love to know the answer as well.
