    I would rather pay full retail for a genuine Luigi Borrelli than $50 for a fake.

    I would rather pay $50 for a shirt with 90% of the handwork at the same quality than full retail for a name. Understood, though.

    Just to let you know that these shirts are the same sold at the Borrelli outlet in Serravalle (Mc Arthur Glen). They run for about 75 euro, while the "classic" shirts are about 90 euro.
    They are not fake.

    This tells me Borrelli also had lesser line.

    The only problem with buying these shirts and they do turn out to be fake i'm most likely keeping them due to shipping. I doubt the seller will refund shipping and i've already invest $15 per shirt then another $15 or so to send them back and thats 1/2 the money i put into the shirt.

    Do the 75 euro ones come with the seamstress's name and the borrelli sign on the placket? Do they have any other differences? Also do you know why the difference? Why not do al 90 euro ones or are these special to the outlet only?

    I saw those shirts when I visited the outlet last summer, and I've never see them again. Thay didn't come with the usual booklet with the signature of the seamstress. As far as I know, no shop in Italy carries this "second" line of shirts.

    I think some of his stuff is real.

    Look at this shirt:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-2006-BORRELL...QQcmdZViewItem

    I think Borrelli uses several labels, a different label doesn't mean a fake. Here the buttons, main label, the booklet and its attachment all look legit.

    The starting price is way too low, though. Employee pilferage?

    Can the higher-priced BIN items be real and the others not?

    What if all details are present, i.e. hand stitching, seamstress' name, placket logo, but the buttons are super thin and seem plasticky?

    Probably post-2010 production. Fabric quality is probably meh IRL.

    Gotcha. I'm handling it right now, and the fabric is pretty fine and in a charming pattern.
    There are some slight annoyances in the fit, though. Dunno, may keep.

    I did that about 35x before I realized I needed solids. Just reloaded on those. Check recent purchases in a few days [​IMG]

    I always forget to read that thread. Solids are essential, obviously, but I like things in inscrutable checked or striped patterns of lavender and blue for wearing with odd trousers, sans coat or with a sweater. It's part of my aesthetic. Outside of solid blues, I don't think I'd wear solids in a (by SF standards) casual ensemble.

    Of course - Im not pushing solids - just my personal mistakes in shirt purchases were to go with "interesting" patterns in everything, rather than rewind and start in solids in everything. Hence some of my earlier *ahem* missteps in OTT pattern matching. Spoo 2.0 brought it back in from the outfield. Or is trying, anyhow. [​IMG]

    Haha, some of your latest fits are entering CDB territory... 99% of my wardrobe is insanely boring and consists of navy/gray/white, so much so that opening the closet is feeling a little dreary lately [​IMG] If we follow the Mark Cho logic, we should have quite subtle suitings and then fun purple or yellow ties. I like this, it works and creates presence. OTOH, sometimes I need to live a little. Here, I'll let you weigh in on it. The third color is light gray, not olive. It looks and wears a little less crazy in person. I agree about pattern matching w/ this one. I was intending just wear it plain or with a suede bomber or something. My default mode is "going to the patisserie steez." [​IMG]

    Its a nice collar for sure. I can see it working with a light/mid grey suit and an indigo tie. And call me CBDish one more time and Im getting out of my parents basement to smack you up. You heretic blasphemer times eleventy [​IMG]
