    So who makes the Made In Italy suits for Brooks Brothers? Any idea if the tag is indicating its from 2012?

    This will be the first suit I have thrifted that will become part of my wardrobe at least until I can't fit in a 38 waist anymore. It fits me like it was made for me.

    Bluish Gray Nailhead.

    It has pleated pants [​IMG], but I am just so stoked it fits all around.

    The best part is...[​IMG] ..... I no longer wear 46R jacket size. I am now a 44R.

    Pretty sure this is Lardini. The older silver-labeled suits were sometimes made by st.andrews.

    Had a really good day thrifting. Found 4 recent Oxxford hand made suits, 13 Ferragamo ties, and a D'Avenza Pure Cashmere SC.

    On another note I found 2 Henri Lloyd, anyone have any knowledge with this brand?

    Henri Lloyd is a high-end yachting label if I remember right. Expensive wind-breakers, waterproof pants & jackets, etc. Nice stuff.

    What size are those Oxxfords? :D

    Saw this today. Double-breasted suit, light and dark nailhead cloth pattern producing a medium gray color at a distance. Pass or grab?
