Borrelli, Partenopea, Isaia, Brioni, Belvest and more

I’ve got to clear out the overflow in my closet to make space for some new gear! But I have some terrific clothes that just doesn’t get worn often enough.

In general I’m a 40r us on the slim side with shoulders within 0.5” of 18.5, coat waist around 19”, sleeves around 25-26” pant waist around 17.5” across and inseam of 33”. Everything ranges from very good to NWOT condition

I’ll happily provide pics or specific measurements if we are serious about a deal. I’ll sell or trade. I’d rather trade 2 of mine for 1 of yours, if I really like yours, than 1 for 2 as I’m cleaning out my closet not stocking up! I gun for Attolini or barberaxAttolini whenever possible. I like barberaxcarencini, borrelli, Partenopea and true, high end bespoke. I’m searching for the following:

1) cool unique sport coats and suits. I’ve got the staples and the next wave. I’m not looking to be loud, per se, I just want unique stuff you don’t find every day.

2) a navy flannel suit at the high end. Solid or check. Not stripes.

3) navy suit generally at the high end; again, solid or checks (I know I said I have all the staples, but cool navy suits are worth having!)

4) lighter blue or an olive-y green cotton suit

5) a cool tweed suit.

6) I’ll always take money- but if you find a coat or suit that works for me, you’ll prob get a better deal!

Here’s an abridged list:

-sartoria partenopea 90% cashmere 10% goat hair small check (looks like a fall/winter gingham with a sort of tweedy vibe due to the goat hair). light brown and blue. suede piping on pockets and suede elbow patches (for show-- only worn 10x or fewer). Nearly perfect condition. functional cuffs. Jetted pockets. bought new

-sartoria partenopea very soft, heavier wool flannel. Midnight / dark navy background with large grey checks and subtle burgundy overcheck,. functional cuffs, Bought from a friend. Patch pockets. Excellent condition. Looks new.

- Brioni lightweight wool, very crisp, spring/summer light brown suit with pale blue pinstripes. faux cuff buttons- bought from dirnelli. Slightly larger for me. Very good condition. Some wear. Nothing that would be noticeable to someone else when you wear it beyond normal wear of a well cared for garment. Flapped pockets.

- pal zileri sartoriale totally unstructured lightweight, light grey flannel sport coat with grey, shiny MOP buttons. Worn probably 20x since I bought it new from cravatte matto. One chipped button (will send replacement). Excellent condition. Patch pockets

- isaia s180's dark navy, pale silver pinstripe suit w functional cuffs. Good condition. Normal wear. A repaired hip pocket seam that’s not easy to find.

- lardini for barneys charcoal herringbone all linen functional cuffs NWT

- Borrelli 50eu (fits more like a 48us), large grey / charcoal check on a white background (looks more grey as a coat) on a fall winter-weight silk/wool blend fabric (i believe, missing fabric tag, I bought new with flaw... missing fabric tag). Totally dope coat, just too small to get fixed up for me. Patch pockets NWOT

- Belvest all navy seersucker (no stripes just navy seersucker) jacket in a box (no box ). 50eu. A bit small on me. Functional cuffs. Excellent shape

- Pal Zileri sartoriale Linen wool silk (I think- no fabric tag) with brown and tan large checks and a pale blue overcheck. Loose weave. Bought from dirnelli. functional cuffs. Slightly larger for me with slightly shorter sleeves

- d’avenza camel colored alpaca coat. Cool wood buttons. Non functional cuffs. Small repair bottom middle on back- not noticeable to other people unless they’re really into checking you out from behind. Vintage (80’s?). Patch pockets. No piling- a cool longer nap. Dope coat. totally doesn’t look out of place today. I just have too many brown coats

- Tom Ford Windsor / A, 3p, base grey wool fabric (very soft) NWOT. Purchased from a TF tailor who left them- it was an employee suit unworn- he showed it to me next to the base suit that was not employee and claimed construction and fabric were the same. I have a fairly good eye and all looked and felt same. I assume there was more machine work on internal canvas etc, which, candidly, should not change the quality, fit, or durability. Lots of hand work all over the rest of it (signature button holes, evident in the shoulders, arm holes, etc... thoroughly investigated). It’s been tailored to me- started as a 38L. Pants have been let out a bit. Jacket is pretty much standard, as is waistcoat. It’s dope. I just don’t have a lot of opportunity to wear it!

I have a number more, but I think these are a good start. Make me a good offer, and I’m game. If you make crazy offers, I may just delete (so don’t get bummed out if you don’t hear from me), but I won’t take it personally.
