    Ahh, pagoda, that's it! Yeah, I'll try to grab a fit pic soon, but I believe you're right. The fabric tag is in German, which is relatively typical...even today they'll occasionally be swapped out to a German tag even when it's made elsewhere. It was sold (and possibly made) at a local place, though this a silhouette I haven't seen in other older stuff from them. One other tag simply says a'mano


    Certainly possible, strange to find the same jacket in an odd color in different places in the world 3 separate times! Good luck on it, maybe an Australian needs it!

    Fatto a'mano means handmade in Italian

    Ridiculous Cucinelli cashmere/wool suit. Peak lapels. Charvet tie, ISAIA 7 fold and a Canali tie. Grand total? $453 :slayer: Thank you Orlando. The outlet actually sucked for the most part, minus that fucking gem of a suit. Will post some better pics of the suit later.

    Yeah, I saw that in the store and was looking for a specific maker. It's entirely possible it was made locally, but I wouldn't understand why they'd slap an Italian tag on it :happy:. I assume someone else did it, wish I had a clue!

    I looked for those pants on three occasions and no dice. I don't think they are coming.
    GA shoes were great quality, glad you Kopped for personal.

    Oddly enough, it reminds me more of some hippo skin boots that I sold a long time ago.

    Should be fine. I would wash it on most delicate setting you have and then drip dry.

    Ah well, guess it'll be getting donated back! Didn't really want to pay that much for the shoes to be honest, but in my size and in really good shape, so it would've been hard to pass.

    Had some good inspiration to hit another store after that one, after seeing two Ghibli's , an FF, and a new Porsche turbo.
