    You're telling me. Only one in the bins that fit that genre too. It's in very nice shape and still has the shrink. Original press from the mid 90's. New sticker price on it was $7.99 so definitely mid 90's. Wife is out of town this week so I cranked it up last night! :slayer:



    Check the inside label at the very bottom left corner. Recent Zegna stuff specifies what it is. It will either say suit or jacket. I know this store very well. This is their eBay outlet, but they also have a brick and mortar store that I often frequent. Most of their stuff comes from the east coast (Bloomies in NYC, Richards & Mitchells, etc) but most of it is all brand new. Some is store-worn/damaged. I've had a very hard time finding a complete suit in that store but I only know of a few makers that do full cashmere suits and have yet to see one from Zegna so you may have a legit blazer.

    When you get the jacket, take some really good photos of the buttons on the chest (if you want to match them), also take a picture of the labels and send an email over to Zegna USA. You might (probably) can talk them into a free set of replacement buttons without much of a problem. I dont condone fibbing, but your tailor could have always lost them... Looks like a great deal!

    I posted this recently, but I think it needed to be shown again, so that future generations will not make the same mistakes we did.

    Anyone have any experience with pants that say "pantalone" around the waistband? I only ask because I found them surrounding this...

    Earlier there were some vintage French Shriners, picked these up, 10C, but a narrow 10C, pristine condition, dark brown, these could be Mad Men shoes:

    While out of town I strolled into a consignment store on a pretty little street and found a pair of Bontonis with lasted shoe trees. Probably not usual thrift prices but they were a nice surprise since I walked in to check out a chair I liked in the window.

    ^^^ I've got two PRL ties in similar paisley patterns. One in mostly blues and the other in mostly greens. Surprisingly, both get regular wear.
