    ^^^ Never mind, just answered my own question. Apparently this is Issia's diffusion line, a lot less handwork but still using quality cloth. Oh well, still a sweet jacket.

    That's who first came to mind when I saw it. :D
    Nope, a US 44 I believe, it's big on me and I usually wear a 38. The drop says "R".

    Some stuff I found today at lunch. I love this tie, even though I don't normally go for this type of print. Anyone ever heard of this maker?

    Southwick olive suit. Tagged a 40R. Shoulders are too big for me though, most likely 19". Pants are pleated with a 1" cuff and a fuller cut. I'd say around a 34/30. Let me know if anyone wants me to proxy, $20 is the cost of the suit, plus the shipping. The fabric is very nice, and I found no blemishes on either the pants or the jacket.

    New dudes: We welcome you here and enjoy seeing your brags. But when asking for label IDs, please note: There's a thread for this sort of thing. Brag here, cross-post your questions here:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/h...secrets-to-id-the-maker/1000_100#post_6019522

    And for the last time, please USE SPOILERS. (Not directed at anyone in particular; it's just been building up since I was trying to keep/catch up on the thread on the chair lift with, like, 1 bar of 3G, only to have to scroll past pages and pages of quoted pictures.)
