    Tagged Medium but seems to run small - pit to pit is ballpark of 19-20 inches(!) - it's a VERY stretchy cotton, but I really think it's probably more like a Small.


    I suppose you're right, if you just put Saint Andres in the auction title you should have no problem selling it. :devil::devil::devil:

    That jacket is p2p 23", shoulders 21, sleeves 23 - but note that the shoulders often "overhang" on leather jackets by design. It's a pretty thick jacket, and it's outerwear, so I'd say the measurements are about where I'd expect a small to be taking that into account.

    Looking at that jacket more, it's clearly worn, and I'd say needs leather cleaning, but structurally and all everything looks fine. @#%@#* why are things like this never my size... Also, I'm not 100% sure if it's suede or just leather in need of moisturizing and care. I might actually lean towards that, actually, looking at the close-up photo of it.

    That's good to know because I see Monsieur stuff all the time. Is Dior Grand Luxe a step above or not worth picking up?

    That Brooks old man jacket looks awesome. What is it, leather? Suede? It's hard to tell.

    Well, I don't know if this is always the case and I don't want to lead you astray, so this is the tag you should be looking for for Corneliani-made Dior:

    Content tag just says it's 100% Genuine Leather... which is no help. I really do think it might be a *leather* jacket that just feels soft due to age and needing conditioning. I'd have no problem rocking it myself if it were bigger. :slayer:

    Interesting. Not a pain at all, and thanks a lot for the correction!

    Edit: Actually, I'm not so sure about that...Check under Corneliani here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/hof-labels-heels-and-nail-patterns-secrets-to-id-the-maker

    and I'm sure that's right because I have an Italian-made PRL that I know for sure was made by Corneliani that has the same bottom label.

    Had my first hassle on eBay today! Yay?

    I sold the Versace jeans I found... They were marked a 32 x 30 but the guy got them and complained that they were smaller than 32 and too tight... I guess I should offer to let him ship them back and refund his money? I dunno... Seems obvious to me that high-end brands don't vanity size like Gap or Old Navy, but whatever.

    Suggestions?

    Did you include measurements? If not, it's a tough call :-/.

    I often get confused between them myself.

    I've just done a search on eBay.

    1. Canali label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Canali-...SA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item2a18232242
    2. Corneliani label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Corneliani-...SA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item53eafb97b6
    3. PRL label - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Polo-Ralph-...383642?pt=US_CSA_MC_Suits&hash=item3cc0b8f15a

    I hope that this helps.

    Clint

    No, I didn't... Will next time. I offered to refund his purchase price when they arrive back.
