Who makes Loro Piana blazers? Can you tell me anything about them, the construction, the tick stitching, anything? I'm looking at a Zelander (made of wool from New Zealand) and it seems to have very obvious, machine made tick stitching. Maybe it's just old. But I'm grateful for any for any information I can get.

As a newcomer here, I'm thrilled to be near such a great body of knowledge on the subject of clothes.

This was just discussed in a thread a few weeks back. Recommend you use the search function. Most are made by Gabo Napoli. Half canvas construction. They're nice, but definitely not good value for money. It seems that some are made by Santandrea, and they are much better.

is it a Loro Piana blazer or a blazer made with LP fabric. Do you have a pic?

It was made by Loro Piana out of Loro Piana New Zealand wool. It’s on eBay and it’s a gorgeous plaid. Bold. Strong. But they pull it off, in my opinion, anyway. Too big for me.

The seller is flexible on the price.

That jacket isn't Loro Piana...just made from Loro Piana fabric.

That’s why I pursued my line of questioning. Most of the LP jackets sold under their own label are cashmere or some cashmere blended. The Zeelander wool, while nice, is mostly used as suiting by various suit makers.
