    Thanks. Still have the Hermes but I'm finally working on putting them on eBay after all this time.

    A Canali suit for $1,100? From goodwill?

    Mannequins, definitely.

    Actually, not a mannequin, get a shirt form, mannequins take too much time to dress. A new one will run you less than $100 off eBay. I'd have bought mine off CL, but they never have male forms and they're always too expensive.

    Shit son! They are really trying to step up their hood game!

    I think this is a Canali made Polo Blue Label. Anyone thinks differently?

    Then again, maybe modelling would work better than a mannequin.

    Corneliani makes for PRL, not Canali

    My mistake. I read that both Canali and Corneliani made suits and SCs for Polo. Since I have a Blue Polo and a few Canali, I compared the tags. They were almost identical. Since I don't currently have a Corneliani and don't remember what their tags look like, I just assumed it was made by Canali.

    Thanks for the clarification. [​IMG]

    Luckily whoever ripped out the HF label of the shit I picked up yesterday forgot about the loro piana one :D though I don't know how to date it without the other tag...

    Bought a mannequin from capnwes. First off he's a good guy to deal with. Second the price is very reasonable and the mannequin I got looked like new. It actually makes taking pictures easier in my opinion.

    If any of you are considering getting one, I'd contact Wes before his are gone.
