    ^^ +1. The fabric content tag looks like the mainline Zegna ties I've seen as well. Didn't Zegna Couture was well-known enough to be faked.

    Picked up this Hickey Freeman yesterday with matching pants. I'm a short but this is a regular, so trying to decide if it is worth it to have the jacket shortened an inch.

    Here are the shell cordovan AE Bradleys in size 12D

    I literally took these pics seconds after putting the shoe trees in.

    They are for sale.

    Thanks! I've only seen a few Attolini pieces since I started thrifting seriously a year ago. You got the first one. This is the second one I've purchased.


    Lobbs still win. By a mile.


    The problem, my friend, is that you and I are pretty much the same size. As a result, these will be staying in my closet. Maybe next time.


    Ha! Hardly. There are plenty of other full-time masters of the thrifting game out there, including Nataku and csoukoulis, among others. I'm just glad to find some nice things every now and again.

     Good to see the "care in the community" programme works as well across your side of the pond as it does here

    I managed to dig out some ties that I've had in my closet for a number of years now. I have presumed them to be real (since I purchased them from a member of the forum and they look consistent with the other Zegna Couture ties I own).

    I would suggest that your tie is real and it is from the later "Couture" range than the older "Napoli Couture" (which the ties below are from).

    I hope this helps.

    Hello guys this is my first post, I have been lurking a while but decided to jump in when I saw this thread.

    In am in the Chicago area and we have a Premium Outlet mall. Has anyone had experience with these stores and their clothing? What is good and what is bad about them? Are they actually worth it or are the clothing defective / made with cheap materials? Are they far out of season/ style?

    Here is a listing of the stores I am interested in at this outlet mall: http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/store_listing.asp?id=63

    7 For All Mankind
    Giorgio Armani
    Hugo Boss Factory Store
    Lacoste
    Lucky Brand
    Salvatore Ferragamo
    Theory
    True Religion Brand Jeans

    Would it be worth my time to pick up a few suits from Hugo Boss factory store, Giorgio Armani, and Theory? I am looking for a few fashion forward and traditional suits to wear on a daily basis just for fashion.

    Thanks

    Found my first seven fold tie this weekend. I am fairly excited about that, even though in my opinion its probably one of the ugliest ties I've bought.

    Nice - I haven't found one of these in a coon's age! It is really ugly, but they're really cool ties regardless and these's tons of demand for them.
