    Thanks for the info. Yeah, like I said, the material seemed fine but the sewn-on buttonholes threw me off.

    There is a Missoni for Target line, not very good.

    My wife has since thrown out all her old Missoni ::crackup:

    From what I know, the only Missoni worth grabbing is their wild colored zig-zag design stuff (that isn't made for Target). Sold a zig-zag print velvet blazer several months back for $100+. Couldn't give a mint Missoni charcoal suit away.

    Quick question...I picked up a blazer with the label Gieves & Hawkes Bespoke for Barneys.
    However, inside the pocket was an American Garment Workers union tag.
    For a Seville Row label, how is it made in America?

    Thanks,
    O

    Check the size tag and see if it looks like this:

    Hickey Freeman makes their domestic product (and I find a lot).

    Hide it and wait for a yellow-tag clearance! I was trying to do that with a Kiton at a Marshall's by me, but someone snatched it up

    Yellow tag just ended (still continuing at some stores). These MIGHT get dropped 1 or 2 times by $10 per pop but will not likley see yellow tag for a few months. This one is currently looking at the inside of my trunk through the semi-opaque-blur of a plastic bag.

    That's it indeed. Many thanks.
    Any difference in quality from HF line?

    My first find of any note - an Ermenegildo Zegna "soft" navy blazer. I say blazer, but given it's a three-button I think it may be more likely an orphaned suit jacket (no pants were found). Regardless, I'll wear it as a blazer. Unless I can flip it on the 'Bay.

    Oh, and a lovely Bugatti (?) bookbag/briefcase in brown leather.

    Zegna soft likely to be a sport coat. As for flippability, Zegna soft was canned around 6/7 years ago, it may be worth a few bucks but not much. Wear it and enjoy it.
