    I believe this is the label you're looking for. Sorry for the crappy photo.

    <- 40R, although I have NO experience with DB jackets and I would even know what color/material tie to wear with that. I would probably save it for fall and wear a scarf instead. Love the old school blue-green plaid pattern though. Maybe grendel should grab it up.

    I'll post full measurements later this afternoon but pit to pit was 21" and shoulder to shoulder was 18.5". The super 120's fabric is super soft and light so this could be worn year round. It's in excellent condition with no rips, loose seams, or stains that I can see.

    I'd like to send this out at no cost to someone that's a regular contributor to the board here because I've learned a sheeeitload over the past year and a half from this thread alone, but there are several conditions...once you receive it you have to post a fit pic. Secondly, if it doesn't fit, you have to pass the favor on to someone else here that can use it. That be all.

    21" pit to pit is too small for me, so on to the next person...

    Not a thrift, but definitely a discount store. Made another run to BBCC in NC, brought back a few classics on the cheap:[​IMG]

    Anybody come across one of these "Bianco Brioni" suits ? It caught my eye b/c of what looked like hand stitching on the lapel. It read -Loro Piana super 150's on the inside but the cloth felt like sandpaper. The label just didn't look right, it didn't feel right, so I left it. Weak sauce...

    Never a good sign of a quality suit when you first few links on google are for sales at amazon for 90% off retail.


    Are you sure they aren't made in Tuscany? I hear it's beautiful there. But if you're thinking about getting a place there don't bother. There's really nothing available.
