    Does anyone know any retailers / clothing lines / etc that have this look w/o a massive price tag?

    What do you mean specifically when you refer to the Cucinelli "look"?

    Besom ticket pockets perhaps :devil:

    Warrengardner seems to be the go-to guy on B&S for Cucinelli stuff; he often has some nice examples for sale.

    I wouldn't think someone with a name like AvariceBespoke would be playing the "cucinelli look on the cheap" angle.

    You can do it, but what you get with BC is a one-stop, coordinated look (and a brand name)

    Isaia has some jackets at a bit lower cost and much higher quality workmanship and fabrics.
    Boglioli and Belvest both have excellent jacket with similar details and better finishing (IMO) that BC. I saw some at Neimans this past weekend for $895 vs $2900 for a similar summer BC jacket.

    For pants incotex.

    Massimo Dutti does a pretty good high-street version of that Italian luxury casual look.
