    just got a listing of one of my inventory sources and a few names for you guys to put some input:
    RAGE
    Scaglione (shirt)
    Orlando (shirt)
    BE (jersey style knit)
    Energie (jackets and jeans)
    Itsus Chopper (T's)
    Bill Board (Pants)

    i got others, but i'm familiar with them, but these I've never had before. any interest/knowledge?

    Energie is equivellent to Diesel. Made in Italy from what I've seen. The jeans don't seem to be as nice as Diesel (Energie has some crazy washes - American flag, anyone?) but the shirts and jackets seem to be a step above - made in Italy rather than 3rd world sites.

    Itsus is sort of like Diesel and that 'streetwear' style of clothing, but less expensive. I think it's sold at Urban Outfitters.

    I might be interested in Energie jeans or shirts, let me know what sort of things you have access to.

    RAGE: Are you sure this is not RA:RE? Increasing popular Italian brand with emphasis on recycled and military/punk looks

    Scaglione (shirt): no idea

    Orlando (shirt): Interesting Italian streetwear - on the conservative side. Priced (in LA between about $125-$225, depending on the degree of intricacy)

    BE (jersey style knit): No idea

    Energie (jackets and jeans): Like Diesel - a little more extreme in terms of cuts, detailing. I hate, hate, hate the stuff. There are about 2 out of the hundreds of pieces I've seen that don't look Eurotrash to me. Denim is inferior quality to Diesel and *any* of the premium U.S., English (One True Saxon, Seal Kay, etc...) or Japanese brands.

    Itsus Chopper (T's): Clubwear - not my thing at all. See Energie above.

    Bill Board (Pants): Trendy (Italian?) brand. Reasonable quality.

    I really like Two Flowers and Coast shirts, but the former is in general a little much for Boston - damn the East Coast.

    I can only concur with VersaceMan. I like the Energie stuff I've seen, generally. It seems to be good quality for what it is (younger-oriented casual) and the styling is usually alright. That said, I've never bought anything from them, so nothing has struck me as must-have.

    Itsus is not to my tastes - I'm not sure if Itsus-Chopper is the line I've seen, but the tshirts I've seen have always been kind of out there for me, and the quality has seemed lacking. Flimsy, clubby kind of stuff. The other brands are as new to me as to you. What type stuff are they, if you know?

    Looking forward to any new inventory anyhow.

    Edit: seems LA Guy knows what's up with Energie. My experience with it is limited, so I'll gladly bow to him on that one.

    If you have some Coast shirts in a small, 100% cotton or linen, I would be interested...

    thanks for the input guys. they are just new lines to this particular store so i don't know. the inventory sheet says "RAGE" and i once got 2 leather jackets with "RAGE" on the inside, but they were damaged so i sent them back.

    When is all this stuff going to be up for sale? Will we be able to see it on the virtualclotheshorse.com website? Any discounts for forum members?

    my stuff comes in different "waves" depending on the retailers whims of when they want to let it go. i'll see what i can do for forum people, maybe free shipping or something. a lot of specific items i price just barely above my cost b/c they're hard to sell and i make it up with other more popular items so on some of it, there isn't much room to discount. i'd say that this stuff will be up in 14 days as it ships from LA and won't arrive till next wednesday.
