    Not to pile on, but aren't the Burberry listings incorrect also? I once posted a jacket I found with the same label, calling it Burberry Prorsum, and was told that I was mistaken and that it was not really Prorsum.

    Man, I'm glad you noticed that. I started the listing with a template I had from another burberry suit from a while back. I totally overlooked that. What would I do without you guys. Updating them now. Thanks

    Check out this Harris Tweed raglan top coat I picked up today. This is the first time I found one with the original fabric stamp inside (see 3rd photo). Has anyone ever run across this? I suppose it means it was the first piece made from that particular roll of tweed.

    I had no idea about the label until I found a gorgeous down parka with real fur lining from them a couple years ago, ironically at the same store but in my size.

    It's pretty high-end stuff. Sold at Barneys, Davide Cenci and Beretta in NYC and Syd Jerome in Chicago.

    Any idea on MSRP? Would be interested to know if you could get a pretty penny for it.

    Found these today, nice bal wingtips. Trying to ID them, but for $6, in a size that fits, I couldn't go wrong.
    "Made in England Expressively for J.L. Brandeis & Songs." - printing on the inside.
    Made in England on the sole, C Fit, Last 114 - Style JUS 256. Goodyear heel.

    Are they crap or decent?

    Passed up some things today:

    Pal Zileri 3/2 orphaned SC, unvented and had big ass gold buttons. It was a nice navy coat, but even at $3.50, I wasn't sure I could sell it. (54L)

    Pal Zileri suit (complete) with damage. The middle button pulled out of the suit material and there was some lining wear. (54L)

    A couple decade old Zegna shirts in tasteful patterns.

    A pair of Zegna black, pleated dress slacks. The material was almost like thin denim. (34/32)

    Giorgio Armani collezione dress slacks in a 34, unknown length.

    I probably messed up not buying these, but I'm quickly getting to the point that I only buy things I am in love with or know someone here will want.

    Did pick up:

    My first J Press item, after stupidly passing up a badass lined overcoat, a tie with little embroidered pigs (?)

    Charles Tyrwhitt grey ghingham Sea Island cotton barrel cuff shirt. (17 1/2/36)

    Armani Collezioni modest birdseye black/grey suit in very good condition. No marked size, but measurements indicate it's close to a 42.

    Paul Smith mainline light purple striped barrel cuff shirt (16 1/2)

    Older Zegna white barrel cuff point collar shirt (15)

    It's weird, but I've been seeing tons of animal prints lately. Lots of stuff from BB and Vineyard Vines. Not sure why, but it's interesting. Your post makes me jealous, too, b/c I saw my first JPress tie in the wild. Very trad green w/ gold medallions. Would have been perfect, except for the extreme fading on the face of the tie. I have no idea where my JPress obsession stems from, other than its consistent trad offerings, but needless to say this really bummed me out.

    News to me on it not being part of a suit. I believe it was very slick wool (worsted?), thus putting it into full suit territory in my mind. I guess I'll adjust my thrifting technique. I can't even recall the store where I saw it, but should I really bust my ass to go find it again? Also, it was not from the Sartoriale line.

    I'd like to know. I'd figure north of $800 on this one at least. I found a way more basic one here that retailed for $675.
