1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Up for reluctant sale is my Gianfranco Ferre made in Italy charcoal wool top coat in like-new condition. I purchased it new from an authorized retailer and have gently worn it in rotation with many other coats. It is a 40R and measures 20.5” shoulder seam to seam and 41.5” top of back collar to bottom of coat. Peaked lapels, three button closure, single center vent. It has no stains, tears or damage and has not be altered or dry cleaned. My crude photography skills do not do justice to the beautiful coat.

    Retail $1,500 new, will sell for $400 OBO (CONUS shipping included), payment by USPS money order. I do not check PMs that often, so email me at:

    Thanks for looking!

    How long have you had the coat/where did you get it?

    The tough thing about Ferre is that dating a piece is made difficult by tons of diffusion lines, changing suit labels/production, etc. This one is tagged "Studio," which hasn't been in production for quite a while. It was one of the better diffusion lines, but still marks the jacket as being fairly vintage (1990's?)

    There has been a lot of unsold vintage deadstock from these lines distributed out there... most surprising was seeing some 15+ year old Versace and Ferre stuff sold on yoox in the past year or two alongside current season stuff (ftr I don't think Yoox knowingly does this; they get stuff from liquidation all over the world and so probably just stuck it in the batch with the regular Ferre).

    Virtually ALL of the Ferre on ebay is old deadstock. Finding a 2006-present mainline item is very, very tough (but worth it!)
