    This reminds me of the Corneliani jacket I found with a Made in England neck tag. The neck tag was a replacement as per thread consensus, and it would seem your Corneliani keeper is as well.
    But still a nice tie!

    Stumbled across some Filson cords and dress shirts "made in China". I passed on them but was curious if they flip well/at all. The only Filson I have sold has been made in USA outerwear.

    [​IMG]

    And if you're me you make this kind of strangled grunt when you realize the neck thing on the rack is a matching vest. Both womens L, I believe. N/A

    [​IMG]

    NOS Florsheim Imperials, black pebble grain. Another pop- believe it or not, this is the first pair of florsheims I've ever picked up. The guy ahead of me in the shoe aisle picked these up and put them back again. I was on them with a quickness. I honestly want to like put these behind glass, they're just magnificent. Not so much as a crease.

    [​IMG]

    Dunhill gray wool suit with lavender windowpane (and lining. Pants not pictured). Made in spain. Pockets all basted and fabric in the pocket, so it seems as though it might be NWOT despite the wrinkliness.

    Here's a tie I scored. Unfortunately the only tag is the one pictured. Any insights? Drakes? Grenadine? Fingers crossed...
