    Today was Isaia day in MN.
    Visiting for business meetings, Nataku, we missed you bud!
    We found your brands in abundance.
    We scored several Isaia shirts $17.00 (NWOT)
    1 RLPL shirt-$20.00
    1 NWOT Isaia suit-$134.00 (Seriously amazing suit, the new red label 42R). There were a bunch of Isaia, some NWT for around $250.00
    Some Breuer ribbon belts and ties $7.00 NWT
    Martian Dingman belts $24.00 NWT

    NOICE.

    I picked up a Giorgio Armani blue suit jacket today. It's fairly obviously an orphaned suit coat given its lack of flaps on the pockets, but I'll change the buttons to brown horn and wear it out sometime to a bar/club. It has a fairly sleek silhouette (though more structured than what is often preferred here). It was $5, so it was worth picking up as it's very nicely constructed (nice material, full canvassing, etc).

    I saw an orphaned Corneliani charcoal flannel double breasted coat in 44R, but couldn't find the pants so I didn't think anyone would be interested in the trading thread. There was also a nice BB suit (also canvassed I believe) in about the same size for $20, but it was a bit too big for me.

    Here are some laptop pics of the suit.
    Its pretty amazing, everything is still sewn shut.
    There was a 42R Paul Smith blazer that was sweet for $40.00, but I am on a "spending freeze".

    This is the first Hermes I found that wasn't a tie. It's really cool. Mother of pearl buttons, the Hermes brass cuff buttons, really nice fabric. Unfortunately the PO removed the fabric content/size tag.

    Nice find! He probably had his name on the tag and removed it prior to donating.

    Yeah - it was one of those dinky 1"x1/2" tags.....probably couldn't fit too much on there! It was on the neck area and I know those tags bother some people so they remove them due to discomfort. I think that was the case. It's still a nice shirt, though!

    ^Great find! I've got a Hermes shirt that I thrifted a year or so ago (it's posted somewhere in this thread, probably). The fabric on it is super soft. There was another Hermes shirt there when I bought it, but it had been worn to death, and wasn't worth picking up. Besides those, I've never seen anything other than ties from Hermes, either.
