    Awesome stuff. Do you mind if I ask what brand? If I'm not mistaken, you are NOVA/DC area as well... would like to keep an eye out for that brand!

    Haha, it's in the spoiler man....Eljo's. I know for sure they have several northern/central Virginia locations, but another poster pointed out that they have shops in DC, MD, and NC as well. Great quality gear, IMO.

    Well, now I feel like a dumbshit. Gotta keep an eye out for it, especially since I went to UVA.

    Real?

    Paul Smith
    Sportswear
    Made in Hong Kong
    55% Raime
    45% cotton

    size 3
    dry clean only

    has these weird patches sewn onto it (I'm going to be totally honest, if this said Yohji Yamamoto instead of paul smith i'd wear it everyday)

    also picked up a heavily worn Diesel graphic tee and a Uniqlo light weight poly-cotton shirt jacket thing that uniqlo has come to be known for

    I'm pretty sure the only Eljo's is in Charlottesville. Those other locations are where I've seen Eljo's in thrifts. FWIW, Beecroft & Bull is another store to keep an eye out for. Used to be trad, but now definitely more Italian.

    I'm pretty sure nobody will see the tag when you're wearing it

    How worn is the Diesel graphic tee? Would Ibe able to get a refund if condition is too poor? Also could I get measurements on the sleeve openings?
    Thanks, extremely interested in a quick sale before this gets into a bidding war on eBay.

    Comrades!,
    My first Brioni! I found this wonderful tobacco-coloured Brioni summer jacket in 40R, made for A. Ugolini & Sons, Florence, with three patch pockets, no vents, lined and fully canvassed, tonnes of handwork everywhere, the characteristic Brioni roped shoulders, interesting Brioni buttons, working cuffs, and wonderfully handsewn buttonholes. Ah, those delicious, raised, shiny sleek buttonholes! Such a delight to run your finger over them, not to be too creepy :embar:. The thing is wonderful and available for cheap for the denizens of this thread :spam: ;).

    Measurements
    ---------------------------
    Shoulders: 18"
    BOC: 30.5"
    Sleeves: 25"+1", out of 4 buttonholes, 3 are working
    Chest: 22"
    Vents: 0
