    I'm always having trouble matching ties to my shirts. Do you guys think this might be a good idea?

    Wear that with a patchwork madras shirt, patchwork pants, and patchwork madras jacket and enter it into the kent wang pattern contest.

    I'm sure it'll go well with a black suit. [​IMG]

    However, the $29 shipping costs to Canada have killed my enthusiasm somewhat.

    Yikes. What's up with that? Shipping to Canada isn't that much, especially for something like a tie.

    Corneliani Navy Sport Coat 42R (52 EU) @ $39.99 with 5 hours left (seller put wrong size on title & description)

    Looks more like an orphaned suit coat than a sort coat, no?

    $3000 BELTRAMI By BRIONI Tan 100% Linen Suit 46R ITALY

    Is anyone familiar with Beltrami? What is the connection to Brioni?

    The tags look like Brioni. If it was a L we'd be fighting [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The tag on the left? Shit. I knew that looked familiar. I passed up a couple nice jackets that had that style inner tag, but no other tags on the piece. Really nice looking jackets. Well-made. When I first picked them off the rack, I thought "Saint Andrews" Maybe they'll still be there this week.

    I'm hardly an expert on Brioni but that tag looks like it.

    Beltrami is a mid level men's clothing store on Long Island that carries items "from t-shirts to tuxedos". They sell their own brand but this is not made by Brioni.

    May I ask how it is that one can be sure either way about Brioni made in this case. There seems to be a view from some members that it looks like Brioni, and an emphatic nay from another. It seems rather silly of the seller to make a claim that can be easily disproved. Or is the point that it is difficult to establish either way?

    That said, how can the inexperienced avoid a fake Brioni.

    It can be easily proved, but not disproved. Among other things the size tag, detailing around the inside pockets and the anti-slip lining inside the pant waistband are all distinctly Brioni. No one else uses those exact details.

    That being said the suit looks fairly vintage.

    Beltrami is a store in Florence which manufactures and sells their own rather high end shoes and leather apparel. They also carry a limited selection of clothing that they do not manufacture but relabel so it's definitely possible that the suit was made for them by Brioni.

    Seems it can be both.

    Damn, I coulda had a Brion!

    But instead, you didn't pay $200+ for a used linen suit. I think you won this round.

    Something I happened to see that caught my eye was this 60s-looking Abercrombie & Fitch dinner jacket: http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Abercrom...QQcmdZViewItem

    My size except for the stumpy legs, but I don't need one.

    Interesting. So somewhere between being an outfitter and being the brand of choice for mall douchebags, Abercrombie was a full-fledged clothier?
