    Yeah, also interested about what's too vintage about it. I just loved the color/pattern and waist suppression on it.

    To the guy looking for mannequins, I happened to go to United Colors of Benetton today and they were selling over a dozen of their store models. Dunno of all Benetton stores are doing this, but there they were!

    Also, has anyone heard of Dona/Dona (designer brand)?

    XD I doubt it. I was thinking 'Donna Karen', then I remembered 'Donna' has two N's.

    Price on the chinos? Those would fit me perfectly and I've been in the market for a good pair.

    LOL. Thanks, gents -- well, there's two things I wouldn't have thought of. Conflicting answers might only deepen the mystery. (Or, as these are likely headed to B&S, I should say, LEGEND).



    Do peeps hate on TB? What, is he like the Robert Graham of London? I usually leave them behind, as they don't jive well with even a close-cropped beard, tending to make me look sleazy. Coats, though; those sound nice! I've seen a lot of fairly conservative Etro and Paul Smith numbers make greatly more appealing by their wacky iridescent linings. :nodding:

    Well, I finally met Mr. Borrelli today. Our conversation went something like this:

    "You, sir, are an amazing man: fat of buttons, slim of waist. You MESMERIZE me with your shiny herringbone! You will fit me!"
    "I will not fit you. I'm a 16L."
    "..."
    "..."
    "YOU WILL FIT ME!"
    "..."

    Ahhh, I will rephrase. It is vintage Hermes, probably a 1990's piece. I should have said "Looks nice but is a vintage piece and thus too highly priced for a vintage piece". I wrote my response quickly without inspecting grammar or context, my bad.

    Hello. I ended up going to one store and picked up blue and white striped Corneliani dress shirt in a 15 1/2 and a pair of vintage L.L. Bean green canvas and brown leather workwear-type braces with brass hardware. Not my style, but should find a good home with someone on eBay. Thanks! -M-

    Ha! Pat Morse is the guy who repaired and restored the LV / Goyard trunks from my estate sale. Great guy, and amazing work.


    How much were they? And what kind?
