    Can't be sure. Not sure where the jacket was made. If it was made in England - chances are that it is semi canvassed.

    This looks like a good price for a Brioni suit:

    And a reasonable BIN for a Borrelli:

    Bit off topic, but this copperplate writing set turned up in one of my searches and it's very iGent

    Nice heavy engraved silver cufflinks:

    With all of the remarks lately about the stupidity of buying used or, worse, damaged items, I wasn't sure if I should admit to this, but I am going to. I bought the Brioni shoes for my dad as a "pain management" project. Oh, and they were much worse in person! When I gave them to him he said it was going to be a real challenge to fix these, but well worth it. Given the progress I have seen thus far I have to agree. I would wear them right now, as is, if he stopped working on them! When he is done I will take photos and post them, for anyone interested. I think you will find the results quite amazing.

    It would be nice if you can compile a photo essay on his restoration process (on any pair of shoes, not just this).

    I can show the progress thus far, but will ask him to let me do that on the next pair since he has already put a good 30 hours into these, although he is not close to being done, according to him. Take away the weird flash angles, lighting, etc., and I am fine with them already, but that is me, not him.

    Holy shit! Are you kidding me? Those look amazing. Has he done anything with the insoles? Or can he do anything with the insoles?

    Very impressive.

    That is a respectable job in healing the back. I am impressed.
