    Approximately 30% of my business is international. The only place I don't ship to is Italy because of their retarded customs policies about prohibiting shoes, leather and everything which is sewn. Pretty much everything I sell is prohibited. I ship everything via USPS Priority with delivery confirmation unless otherwise requested. I have had fewer problems with my international buyers than with US buyers, many of them are regular shoppers in my store.

    Ok fellas, I need to use your infinitely vast label knowledge to help me identify a suit. So, I went back to the same boutique thrift store I found that LB jacket yesterday to look for the pants. Alas no pants, however, I did pick this up. Arguably the nicest piece of clothing I've ever handled. Made in Italy, super 130's extra fine merinos, double vented, 3 button, smokey MOP's, 4 button working surgeon cuffs. No maker label, just the content tag. PLEASE HELP! as this thing is seriously bad ass. Thank you in advance. :embar:

    Just checked to see if I had posted about it.
    I did mention it in a list, but never got around to posting pics, apparently. I found it the same day I found that 3 piece tweed with the reversible vest and the saxophone.

    Looks to me like it's Corneliani. I don't know whether they do bespoke or how often they would, but it's possible that it was custom made and therefore no label.

    Also, what's the story on the hat? I like it!

    The Made in Italy tag, cloth tag, and manufacturer's tag all look like Corneliani.

    I would have to say that the quality blows away the two nicest jackets I've ever found (Brioni cashmere, Sulka tuxedo)

    Got it for a song too, because this place prices items according to labels, no label= cheeeeeeep! :bigstar:

    I would be but unfortunately (or fortunately, however you're looking at it) received a bunch of stuff in the mail today so i should probably hold off. Thanks for the offer though...you do bring home some great stuff. It's a great looking jacket and I love the quality of Corneliani.



    Thanks! They fit really well and hold a shine. They weigh a ton so whoever made them did a great job. You're right though, I made a mistake in typing the label, it does say Sentiero.

    I grabbed these today, italian made mocs:

    I have a couple of things to upload later, though they aren't thrift finds.

    I'm not the best at this, but I'd add this is not dissimilar to some Zegna stuff I've bought. Now everyone can tell me how wrong I am. :hide:

    Picked up some nice stuff this morning. Passed on a Crombie overcoat for $35. Mistake? Hopefully I will do an omnibus new stuff post sometime in the next couple of days .

    US 40 I believe, as it's slightly too big for me. :fu: :fu: :fu: I have yet to measure it. The pants are slim too! :brick:
