    Do you have a picure of the tag, as I've still got 5 Zaffagni items, so I could compare it with what i've got?

    Cheers

    Bose...you need some better speakers. I've got a pair of B&W's I'm selling unless Nataku is finally ready to pull the trigger on them. :slayer:

    This is not getting enough public attention! That's a lot of awesome in the pile.

    I'm not sure, as mine is different. However, based upon the Saint Andrews Fabric label, I would be inclined to treat them the same. If understand correctly, Zaffagni did run (own) Saint Andrews, before they were taken over. If I were pressed, I would suggest that you've got an early Saint Andrews (Andrea) forerunner. The quality should be just as good (possibly better) than current ones.

    All of my items (4 suits and 1 SC) have labels similar to the one below with the fabric label similar to your one:

    I hope this helps?

    Thanks for your help Clint, you are correct about the quality, it was superbly made.

    I have a suit with the same logo, always wondered where it came from.

    If the suit had a vent (or two) in the jacket and I wasn't so completely broke, I would really be making enquires about it.

    I have several Saint Andrew items aside from the ones I've already mentioned. A few Saint Andrews branded SC's, as well as a couple of RLPL items and I must admit to liking most of them a lot. Excellent find.

    I was going to keep this as secret as possible. However, since you've asked for it [​IMG]

    http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?62512-Dario-Zaffagni (I wonder how APortnoy is?)

    http://robbreport.com/Wardrobe-A-Classic-Remake.aspx

    They do come up rarely at good prices. I was fortunate enough to pick up the 5 Zaffagni items I mentioned above (pre-owned, but in decent condition 8/10) for less than £300 (That is two, 3-piece suits; two, 2-piece suits and one 100% cashmere jacket).

    Bose to speakers is what Hugo Boss is to suits. They aren't bad, but you pay a premium for the "perception of quality/name". For $1,300 retail there are a lot of other options speaker wise I would have considered.
