Found a Brioni at a thrift.

    I found a beautiful Brioni sport coat from a charity/thrift shop the other day; but the only concern I have is the label.

    It says 'Brioni International Tailor', and then the email address 'brionifashion@hotmail.com'

    Is this authentic? As I've never seen this before and nothing online. It's a beautiful coat none the less, but would make my day if it was real.
    It feels very high quality, and has the spare buttons sewed next the arm holes with silk lining.

    Many thanks!

    I expect it was made in South-East Asia, most likely Thailand or Vietnam, by a local tailor. I've seen quite a few similar 'bespoke' suits in charity shops, with names like Canali Tailor.

    Then it becomes not a matter of wearing well, but one of premature disintergration.

    What do you mean by premature disintegration, man?

    Like wear it, but not saying it's Brioni?
