I discovered therealreal.com a few months back. With Century 21 closed, I’m still able to dress far above my station in life.

My first purchase from TRR way s a pure cashmere jacket from Dominoco Vacca, made by Cesare Attolini. Easy conclusions to reach because they both have tags sewn all over the jacket. I paid about $150 for a jacket that must have cost—what?—$5,000? $6,000? More?

With the warmer weather here, I just picked up a lighter jacket. Some sort of silk blend from Luciano Barbera. About $75. There’s a small Barbera tag and that’s it. But I swear that this jackets is identical to the Vacca. Same fit, same shoulder, same pockets. (Good for me since I’m not as thin as the average Neopolitan and these jackets are a bit more generous than Kiton, et. al.)

Could Attolini have made the Barbera jacket? Anyone? I’d have a hard time believing that these jackets weren’t made by the same hand.

Attolini did make some things for Luciano Barbera a long time ago yes.

They did have a good run with DV, before he started taking off the «CA per DV» factory labels and replacing them with his own «DV» Labels..🤷🏻‍♂️

Gorgeous jacket. Just gorgeous. I thought about joining the club but decided that I couldn't wear that one jacket night after night. And what if I needed a suit?
