    Picked up this older Brioni today. Couldn't find much info about it other than what was on the small tag in the breast pocket. Even that didn't tell me much. Any ideas on how old this one might be? Not my size so I figured it'd at least be worth an attempt on flipping it on ebay. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nice score! That's not older, that's pretty recent. Older Brionis will have a size label like this:

    It's also MTM. What size does it measure?


    I love this!

    I dont know why, but that shirt is really cool. I wish it was 17.5, bah humbug :( I am growing fond of the British shirts Turnbull and Asser and Thomas Pink - I sold a few of them recently and they were very nice shirts.
    :cheers:

    Nataku is bang on the money - this is quite recent, probably sometime last 5/6 years. Post measurements here and see who will want dibs - if you find someone, you get a great trade or a reasonable money offer. Only downfall is it is a triple button where most of us prefer double. But what the heck, it is a staple color, and on eBay $250+.

    Dude... that brooks brothers jacket is killer. You are going to clean up on ebay with that thing! B2 stuff with that kind of age has been selling for crazy money lately, please list that thing so we can see what happens :slayer:

    Ohhh, that one is a 38 - 40R approx. You will find many here that would want that, expect a few PM's.



    :eh:, do old BB really sell? I saw a whole bunch of jackets like that in a thrift near Vallejo, left them there figuring too old to flip.

    Yes. The old trad stuff is desirable, especially with the old label. 3 roll 2, patch pockets, tweed = anywhere from $40-75, maybe higher if you get somebody who's really after it. This is good in my book considering I'm rarely paying over 10 bucks for a sportcoat.

    +1. Even the Trad contingent on AAAC would go berserk for this.

    @JKidd: Sounds like the line isn't cut for your build is all. There are plenty of suits 'my size' that fit me like a parachute. XD

    Unpopular, but I'm an Armani whore. A/X and Armani Jeans I don't like, but I tolerate Emporio and like/love everything else! It's not the quality or anything (which I understand isn't profound), but more like the nostalgia of a first love (when I initially decided to care about my wardrobe, the first 'expensive' thing I bought for it was an Armani item ...and I was well pleased).
