    The Prada shirt looks authentic. Any chance the Borrelli shirt is in my size?

    Great find!
    Insane........ :slayer:
    Killer haul! Wow, seriously - what is up with all this Loro Piana stuff popping out of the woodwork lately? Trench coats, NWT sweaters, etc. Wish I'd find some! Haha. Total bust today. Found a mint pair of Oxxford heather green pinstripe flannel trousers. Super recent, had the inspection tag in the rear pocket. Likely within 5 years old. No jacket. :fu:

    Had a pretty good day today. As usual, I'll have measurements and better pics up tomorrow.

    Oxxford bespoke. About a 46-48.

    English made Harris Tweed. About a 44-46:

    Bought this because I usually don't find Versace. Probably not worth much, couldn't find the pants (if they even existed), but it was 50% off! Swiss made.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Austrian made khaki suit, about a 38S. Pants fit me perfectly on this, coat needs a bit of tweeking. Can't decide if I want to keep. Never heard of the maker, but the fabric feels quite nice.

    Cool Boss sport coat

    CT shirt. 16.5"

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully Robert Graham polos sell as well as those hideous button downs. Ever since I cursed myself 100 pages back saying I always find them, I haven't found a single one.

    Some great ties. The Brioni I'm definitely keeping. The Faconnable are hand made in France, the BB English woven silk.

    LL Bean american made loafers, I think. Around a size 10.5-11. Seem to be very well made.

    Cole Haan from when they were American made and owned.

    And some Columbia pants on clearance at TJ Maxx, for camping and such:

    Oxxford bespoke could run up to $30K if memory serves me right. Does not mean that suit was $30K though. Pretty cool find.

    x2. IIRC the A after the model is for suit. If it was a jacket it would have a G.

    If it could be annotated with links to the posts referenced, that would be awesome.

    Capn: nice suit, but you might want to think about getting a nicer shirt and tie to go with it. The wrinkly shirt, no collar stays and wonky tie detract from the look. Just my $.02.
