Lots of Sartoria Partenopea on ebay these days

    We all know the fascination many here have with SP ever since Ed introduced the line to many of us several years back. Since then, especially over the last couple years, there has been one principal ebay seller that carries the brand (morigimilano). Well I just went on ebay and noticed that the ebay seller sartoriale has jumped into the fray and has a LOT of SP pieces (nice ones!).

    Are these older models that haven't sold in retail stores or are they new models, discontinued, etc.? I own a SP suit that I bought from Ed a few years back and to this day it's my favorite suit. I'd like to buy another similar one from the same line but have come to understand that the difference b/w the one I bought and what is being produced now is quite different.

    Can anyone offer any insight?

    TIA

    That's a good question. I also noticed that some of the SP suits have a small amount of elastine (2-3%). What would be the reason for it? Are they meant to be travel suits?

    Really solid stuff - I have an unstructured Partenopea for T&A SC that's really stellar! (In addition to a charcoal suit)

    A lot of it comes from Morgimilano...so I would assume its mostly current from him.

    This is what it seems. I'm just curious about the construction/quality of the current SP offerings vs what they were several years ago when Ed first introduced the line.

    I see more of the line at better men's specialty stores around the country so I assume it is simply greater availability as a result of sales and excess inventory.

    PSG - where are you seeing SP in the bay area?

    In the Bay Area at Wilkes Bashford. They had quite a nice trunk show for them last fall. They brought in a ton of beautiful bolts of fabric that were stacked up for MTM as well as having a lot of RTW. It was quite impressive. I don't recall seeing much on my last visit recently, but that may be because of the final sale and their remodeling.

    What's the story with the final sale?

    The selection of SP in RTW last fall was quite limited.
    Or maybe not to my taste.

    The items sold by Morigi Milano are relatively old stuff. This is obvious when one looks at the label in the inside of the jackets and coats he is selling. The old label was replaced by a purple coloured label a few years ago. According to SP the quality has not changed.

    Gotcha. I have a suit with the "old lapel" - the suit is about 3-4 years old now, and it's dynamite. Favorite suit in my closet.

    New here but have been lurking on the forum for a while. The forum has been a great educational tool for me as a result I have had a regime change in my wardrobe and I am posting here because this morning I bought a Sartoria Partenopea navy blazer from Morigi Milano. After reading the comments here and quality of the Satoria line I did a search at eBay. He was very patient answered all my questions about fit and can not wait to receive it.

    I bought a suit from him and it's great; I didn't care which season it came from because the suit I bought was timeless. The construction is fantastic and the fabric amazing. I now have 5 SP suits - the soft shoulder and particular cut fit me perfectly. I don't even have to alter the jacket.
