    Interesting. Well my knowledge on Versace is limited, as in next to none. Any suggestions on how I should sell this on ebay? How much should I expect to get?

    I have seen at least 5-6 of these pieces like this, with local store tags on them in the inside. No way there were fake, they were dated as hell too. Mystery? Some sort of diffusion? That's weird.

    yeah, strange. Never a single thing produced in the USA. I haven't a clue about this one. Could be some sort of licensing thing, but this is stuff that .000001% of the population will pay attention to. List it at $9.99 and let it roll from there as if this conversation never happened.

    Yeah, it's one of those things that--barring its owner's death--defies explanation. It's the second one, too. I've been really lucky to find a few stores that have put out wardrobes of suits, sportcoats, shirts, pants, and shoes--and even a bespoke overcoat--in my size. The ties are a bonus. Maybe I'll post a pic. in the next WAYWN thrifters' edition.

    @ Woolnotmutton: Thanks a lot. The only problem is getting up early enough to figure out which one to wear.

    Wait, what? No one's obligated to sell anything they post in this thread...

    Now you've got me super-curious.

    ahh, I'm actually more of a 40L, but the jacket looked kinda long in the pic so I thought it might work for me. Unfortunately it's a tad too big in the shoulders and just slightly on the short side for me. But thanks for posting!

    An OK quality jacket but I think it fits nicely, and we all know fit is #1.

    Brooksease Blue Pinstripe jacket.
    $6.50

    Ended a long drought today with a Zegna silk SC and a Gieves and Hawkes silk SC as well. Both were $4.

    Want to triple your money real quick? I'll even pay shipping. In all seriousness, is that tie for sale? If so PM me with a price. I may be interested.

    Got a pair of Bruno Magli Made in Italy (Bologna) pebble grain brown oxfords in what has to be considered mint condition. Model is Edgar. The internets tell me they retail for $495. They don't appear to have ever been worn or even tried on. Small scuff mark on the outside heel is the only drawback.

    They fit me (9.5C) but I'm not entirely wed to them if anyone is interested in a trade of some sort. I can put up pics if anyone is.

    Finally got round to taking very poor quality PICS (bad lighting main problem, but also bad 5MPixel camera on Iphone)

    Kiton 54 - 42US (color is chestnut brown, photos make it look british tan, faint green windowpane)
    Cashmere
    Double vented
    2 button
    This is reserved for another member

    Oxxford 44 - 42US (color is darker brown with windowpane that is peach / red and dark blue)
    Full canvas
    Escorial Wool
    Double vented
    2 button

    Faconnable XL, fits like 46 - 48R (color is guncheck with tan and browns)
    Half canvass
    Wool
    Double vented
    2 button

    No pictures due to pictures taken looking nothing like the color. Here is the rest:

    Emporio Armani 56L Dark Blue Sport Coat, unvented, 3 button

    Canali 56L Dark Navy Blazer, Steel gray metal crest button, double vent flap, 2 button, full canvass construction

    Gianluca 56L Prince of Wales Brown Plaid Sport Coat, Unfinished sleeves, double vent flap, 2 button, half canvas construction (sublabel of ISAIA), NWOT

    Isaia 56 Dark Brown / lighter brown windowpane, full canvas construction, double vent flap, 2 button, small hole on chest needs reweave

    Corneliani 58L brown / green windowpane, full canvas, double vent flap, 2 button, small hole on back needs reweave

    Everything is yours, none is mine. Sensible offers, sensible trades, we can work it out.

    Other thrift listings to come, I will give away for free Luciano Barbera pants and Zenya pants. It takes too long to do pics, but I will slowly and surely get round to it. I will also give away some ties for the princely sum of null pwa, zero, ziltch.
