    Seems as though you don't need Spoo to help with your Versace anymore... the jedis have usurped. :) Listen to Nat and Klobber.

    Krizia has shit for resale value, good move leaving it.

    I did notice a small nick (tiny holes forming a vertical line about 1 inch long on the back of the blazer on the far right side. But that shouldn't be a problem if I needed to take in the sides.

    It was far too much work for me to make it work, and the lapels were too big for my taste.

    Someone will surely PM you, that suit looks nice and at the price, a steal. If it was a 46L, I would be all over it.



    You still the resident Versace expert, we are still your apprentices / padawan learners (I dont know why I feel nerdy saying that :laugh:). I joined the Versace gravy train in mid 90's and left it in the 00's, but now getting interested in their collections again. You, on the other hand, have years over us in this brand, and not forgetting you seem to make a reasonable killing over selling the vintage stuff.

    Hickey Freeman Loro Piano zelander suit - 43r. single vented.

    Kiton 100% linen SC(maybe?) - 54(so 44?) working cuffs. single vented.

    Kiton 100% linen dinner jacket. assumption based on the metal buttons. double vented

    Kiton 100% cashmere SC. double vented, working cuffs.


    $8 spent.


    sorry for really bad pictures. i'll try to get better ones up by tomorrow. everything's available, by the way...doesn't fit me. if the sc's are orphans then feel free to correct me as i'm still learning how to figure all of this out.

    :wow: I think I need to purchase two stuffed lions below my stairways before I get those!

    Speaking of Versace, I still want one of the silk shirts to have fun with in the summer. Just can justify resell prices of vintage pieces on eBay. Hopefully the next Versace x H&M collection will have some classic silk shirts for men.

    That zegna PS is awesome. Let me know if you don't want it. It'll go with my BB robe. :hide:

    Also, is the tartan tie unlined? Looks like it is.


    Despite RT's ubiquity, that looks nice enough to pick up! I've never seen a linen version. Pretty neat.

    Whoa, whats the sleeve length on that puppy?


    Im pretty sure this past one was the last hurrah, I can't see a third one happening. Prices from the first one have fallen from the stratosphere on eBay, so maybe you can get it for pretty close to what they cost now.
