    I picked up a PRL a couple hundred pages back that turned out to be made by Lorenzini, easily on par with any other high end shirt I've come across.

    Tell me gents, is this the Lanvin I'm looking for?
    [​IMG]
    I swear I remember someone saying that if it has "paris" on the tag it's worth picking up. It was made in the usa and details seem to suggest it's high end. Did I do a good job?


    Also picked up two pairs of these in 34. Details to follow, later...

    Damn Cotton, loving those borrellis. Nicely done. Those shoes are [​IMG]

    Kids, don't drink and post (re: my post last night). Also, when did the 99cent only store start carrying used ties?

    The "good" ties I've found have said Paris. I think current good label may just say "Lanvin". Their newer logo is that lady or whatever. Pretty sure Made in US is a bad sign for Lanvin as well. Their good stuff should be more fashion forward, and unlikely to be like that herringbone jacket you found. Someone correct me if this is wrong.

    Here's a few tips for Lanvin-seekers:

    - Rather than examining the Lanvin tag, look at the maker tag. Newer good Lanvin is made by Caruso, older by Canali. Photos of both of those tags can be found in the Labels thread. If the tag matches, you've got a winner.
    - Do the canvas pinch test like you would with any piece you're not familiar with. If it's fused, toss it back.
    - If you're in a rush, just look at the country of origin. If it's the U.S., don't waste your time.

    I am interested those pants though, if they have a 33 or 34 inseam.

    Thanks for the advice. As I said I'll be returning it. As for the pants, I've yet to measure them. I'll let you know.

    however, between getting them, school, and their massive quantity, it's been hard to post [​IMG]

    I've heard of those but never come across any. I wonder what the deal was, they were selling RLPL quality at slightly higher PRL prices.

    I don't think any PRL shirts are made in Italy any more, even their nice cursive label dress shirts are made in China now. The cursive label PRL dress shirts I own are quite nice, and clearly nicer than regular PRL or Brooks Brothers, but also clearly not RLPL level.

    I actually loved the PRL shirts that were made in Italy. I am fairly sure they stopped that line, but I do have a couple of PRL shirts that I bought recently that were made in China or some other country and have MOP buttons. Seem to be well made and lack the pony. Not sure what their story is.
