    I was alluding to the idea that there may or may not be links and websites where one could potentially procure said discounted merchandise.

    A few months ago I picked up an unstructured LB windowpane SC at Marshall's. Retail was ~$2300. As you can see, it was going to be marked down to $119, but I didn't think it would last until the markdown so I kopped at $350.

    I agree with Mr. Moo. LB is a lesser known brand than Brioni, Kiton, Zegna, etc so stores like Marshall's price it pretty low because customers are unfamiliar with the brand. A NWT but very shortened in the sleeves Zegna suit at the same Marshall's was $1700.

    I was hoping you were talking about something like ^, but I stalked your profile (thanks, SF Advanced Search!) and figured out you have more of a shirt-jacket. My jaw was going to hit the floor if you found something like the above at NMLC. Stitches, you mind PMing me what you paid? I'm really curious to check out NMLC next time I'm in NOVA/DC and I'd like an expectation of price. Thanks.

    dood. i go there at least monthly.


    yeah, mine is wool glen plaid on the outside and quilted inside, i freaking love it. it was high 300s iirc.

    as for pricing at LC, i find there is no way of knowing/expecting. the older something is the more markdowns, and when you can combine an in store sale with a coupon, thats when you are really hitting your stride.

    usually when stuff first arrives its way cheaper than full MSRP, usually at least 50% markdown iirc, but still not super cheap. gotta wait and hope no one buys it if you want max discounts, ime.

    Not to derail, but do you guys know who makes the newer Barbera mainline like in Matty Long Legs picture? Swee SC btw!
    I don't think it's the same as the Sartoriale Collezione maker(s) but I could certainly be wrong.

    no, I think their best stuff, in terms of suits/jackets, was made by Attolini. Don't think Attolini makes for them anymore.

    I have a recent jacket made by Sartoria Partenopea. Agree with Ed that Attolini was their pinnacle

    interesting, so LB only designs and chooses fabric, and then outsources all the production? i have no issue with that, i just thought they were a fully integrated company for some reason.

    Partenopea can be really good, if the people they are making for have a strong hand. Left to their own devices, they take everything Napoli/Pitti and multiply by 10. "you want a high gorge, how about behind your ears!" "You want spalla?? We'll stick a 40 inch diameter sleeve in a 19 inch sleevehead!!!, It'll be like niagara falls!"

    I disagree, this is a perfectly reasonable layout for these lapels

    The most recent Sartoriale Collezione is/was made by Partenopea. Some years back they were made by Attolini. Note: these are fantastic eBay finds because they're relatively cheap, well constructed and typically of a timeless cut.

    I have not seen the mainline (non-collezione) in person. Matty Long Legs or anyone who has a new LB piece, can you see if there is a maker's tag in one of the interior pockets?

    Here you go. Again, I'm not sure what season this is from, but it definitely looks recent.
