Found something interesting in two of my suits.
Both are RLPL suits from the handmade line.

Here it is:

Both suits have this piece of paper with handwriting. Any idea what it all means???
Looks like different quality control points in the factory / the numbers of the workers who have worked n specific steps. Note 542 comes up at two points - maybe the finishing (as he mentions filo).

CM emergency! Stupid new leather bag was rubbing dye on my pants. Noticed it after walking to gym luckily without the jacket. Tried some mild dish soap and hot water, dabbing gently but it didn’t totally work.

Any recs? Stains at 10, 2, and 4 o’clock on my stellar Canali summer suit!

Finally made it to The Armoury’s Madison Ave store. Very nice. Very tempted by the linen/cotton chinos. They also had some amazing cream linen dress pants but I’m maxed on clothing at the moment. I did finally get a pair of the Gregory Peck sunglasses at OP a few blocks away. I love bopping around this town.

Went to Brooklyn this morning for a walkabout. Checked out Crowley Vintage which turned out to be not my thing at all. Interesting, though.

Did lunch in Tribeca and got my wife a nice Drake’s silk/linen scarf at The Armoury and had a nice chat with the manager and the sales guys. Good folks. The linen/cotton jeans I noticed at the other location were sold out in my size.
