    Does anyone here have experience with Enrico Mandelli?

    Dieworkwear wrote about it a while back:
    http://dieworkwear.com/post/8650814631/the-italian-menswear-series-part-xii-enrico-mandelli

    I have my eye on this piece:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/MANDELLI-Ne...97?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item337edb3d55

    Does the $4250 sound correct for this quality? Is this quality comparable to Kiton Shearling, or Loro Piana shearling?
    Also, what does Exposed at Pitti Uomo Firenze mean?

    Or is that ebay listing a ripoff, and is the initial (max) retail price not more than $2000?

    The reason I ask is this listing:

    http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/enrico-mandelli-fur-lined-evening-coat-item-10236015.aspx

    But I am not sure if that is the same coat.

    Any insights gratefully appreciated!

    Maybe I'm a bit late in replying to your post, but I do work with luxury brands in Italy and New York, Mandelli is among the top quality in leather outwear for sure. They sell mainly to Eastern Asia and Russia and lately starting to open their exports to the US market.

    I would compare it to Brunello Cucinelli and Kiton for sure.
