    I've thrifted 3 Isaia shirts. Upon inspection, 2 had frayed cuffs and the collar points were threadbare. One had worn holes around the collar fold.

    I've seen 3 since then. Same story. Left them. What's the deal? Are they that delicate?

    I've only found 1 Isaia shirt this year. On each end of its collar, the tip was worn raw.
    Left it also.

    This is the first I've seen. The quality is very good. I am impressed mostly with the stitching. It is so fine and tight it is hard to pick up in some places. I can see how it would wear easily.

    Maybe just bad luck? I've found a number of them, and from what I remember they were all in good shape. I've still got one or two in the stable as a matter of fact. Thomas Pink on the other hand.....

    I haven't listed anything for a while, but I though that this was worth sharing. 24 Ferragamo ties in mint condition proxied for me by @vexco. All available

    Yep... Thomas Pink shirts and Charvet ties are both notorious for mega-flaws.

    Haven’t been able to get out much with new baby + job being fucking insane but I did have 2 hours to kill on Saturday. Only one stop gave up the goods but it was a good one.

    I would guess Hemp/Kenaf from the look of the fabric. But can't seem to find KA in any abbreviations lists.
