    I'd buy it at thrift prices, worth taking a shot at fixing/listing as is @Van Veen

    Channeling my inner @PLaydice with this NOS 1985 NCAA hockey championship shirt. So cherry I thought it had to be a repro at first.

    And Penfield is a thing, right? No tag but seems to be in the M - L range.

    Not thrift prices though. Discount store clearance.

    Edit: I passed. The more I looked at it the more snags I found.

    No, I think it's actually the other way around.

    Lubiam is mainline. LBM 1911 is the more youthful diffusion line, and Luigi Bianchi Mantova is the upper end -- sort of like Purple Label.

    At least I think that's how it was originally conceived. Now I think it's less a diffusion/mainline thing and more a niche marketing thing. Because the cut of Mantova is much more square shouldered and mature/executive, while 1911 is much more deconstructed. They both seem to use the same level of quality construction, overstitch, same degree of non/synthetics (which is to say some among both lines).

    I own/have owned a handful of recent pieces of each (from Yoox) and like them both. By the same token, I have returned just as many that I didn't like.

    What g said, lbm1911 is the diffusion they created to market to the trendier group.

    Quite ironic because im pretty sure lbm1911 ended up doing much better than expected, as I dont think the mainline or the higher end line sells as well (resale too)

    By the way: LUigi BIAnchi Mantova = LUBIAM
    That's how you get LUBIAM from Luigi Bianchi (the person) from Mantova. L.B.M. Presumably there's some connection to the year 1911 and I could look it up if I didn't have a deadline I was working toward.

    Thanks for the explanation. Do you happen to know much about the construction of both LBM1911 and the Luigi Bianchi Mantova lines? Canvassing? Looking at a few pieces recently.

    Luigi Bianchi Mantova is typically half canvassed, but sometimes fused. If it says satoriale on the tag, then it's like half canvassed.

    I thought the sartoriale line was full canvas, there was so much hand work id be surprised if they only went with half

    THANKS VADER! I was pretty excited when I saw the old snoopy patch. But, then when I saw the Blood chit, I had one of those moments!
