The closet cleaning continues. So far, seven large garbage bags for salvation army. Pulled a few things out that might be of interest to the forum. I generally wear a 40S in men's sportcoats/suits, and that's the size on ths items below.

SOLD: First up, a fun Prada sportcoat I purchased in Milan (lake como) three years ago. Fabric is a nylon-spandex-wool blend. Can't find the tag with actual breakdown, but it's pretty nice stuff. Got some stretch to it. Very fitted coat, two button, side vents. Pit to pit is 20 inches. Shoulder seam to shoulder seam is 17 inches. Jacket is 28 inches long, bottom of collar to hem, sleeves are 24 inches top of shoulder to cuff. I can't remember how much I paid for it, but I'm asking $100 shipped in the US.

Next up is a Donna Karan signature jacket I picked up at Saks probably 4 years ago. Nice fall/winter jacket, sort of a tween. One button, no vents. Pit to pit is 22 inches, shoulder to shoulder is 18.5. Collar to hem is 30.5 inches and the sleeves are 23.5 from shoulder seam to cuff. I'm asking $65 shipped in the US.

Third in line is a nice pair of Zegna trousers I picked up a few years back. Single pleat, nice taupe/grey/green color. Definitely winter weight. They are more on the full side, as the measurements will show. They are size EU50 on the tag, but the waist measures 16.75 laid flat. Inseam is 29 inches, outseam is 40.5. The knee is 12 inches, bottom opening is 10 inches. They are cuffed with a 1.25in cuff, so they could be lengthened. I'm asking $30 shipped.

Pants:


Up close:



Last, but not least ... a shirt I bought in Malibu (Cross Creek, for those of you from the area) about 2 years back. The brand is Energie, size Large. That said, it is a close fitting shirt. I usually go with Mediums, but actually had to size up on this. Measurements are 32 inches top of collar to bottom hem, 23 inches pit to pit, 27 inches from shoulder seam to bottom cuff. I'm asking $25 shipped.

Any questions, PM me or post here.

I have a weakspot for the Belvest-made Techno-fabric jackets from Prada...

But, what are the actual tag sizes on the Prada and the Donna Karan (50, 52, 48, etc.?)

Thanks!
John

Tag size in the Donna Karan is 40 short. I can't find any tags in the Prada jacket that show a size. Strange, I know, but they're not there. All I can tell you is I bought the jacket from a little boutique in Bellagio in 2003. The boutique was right across the street from the Villa Serbelloni, where we were staying.

Have you checked everywhere? It's not uncommon for mainline Prada jackets to have no branding except for a care instruction tag with a size marking well hidden inside one of the inner pockets for instance..

I assume you bought it used? My stretchy techno-fabric jackets and such were from around s/s 2000 or 2001 or thereabouts.

Usually, the tag will be a paper tag from Belvest with the standard suit markings. Anyway, it sounds about a Prada size 50 or 52... but I wish it was marked somewhere so I could be sure.

Not sure about the used part ... it had tags on it at the time, IIRC. But I don't speak/read italian, so now that you mention it, it is possible. I assumed it was from a prior season, because it was on the sale rack.

I just looked in all the pockets for a tag and there's nothing to be seen. Not even remnants of a tag that was torn/cut out. If it helps, I can wear just about anything off the rack in a 50.

Also, willing to entertain offers for any of the remaining items ... if no interest, will put 'em up on eBay later this week.

Cheers
