    Both should do alright. At least $20+ each. The stuff you need to worry about is mostly ties. The older, ugly 80's-90's trendy patterns made from the finest 100-grit silk.

    No prob - good luck! Brioni stuff has the name going for it, a lot of people will jump on it just because it's Brioni and was sold for a very high retail price. Same with Kiton. I've seen hot pink Kiton blazers get $250+.

    Tried that. Results are all over the place. Literally Zegna tuxes have gone for $100 and $1300.



    Regular Ermenegildo Zegna, white letters on black label. Not Z Zegna or Napoli Coture or anything.

    You'll definitely be able to get more than what you paid for it. How much more depends on how long you're willing to let it sit on the 'bay, what type of picture setup you have, etc.

    BOC = ~30 inches
    Shoulders = ~19.5 inches
    Sleeve = ~23.25 inches

    Pants

    Outseam = ~41 inches
    Inseam = ~30.75 inches

    Cuffs = 1.25 inches

    Available for trade for similar level items. More pics from my iPhone if someone wants them.

    Nice finds, guys! Cotton Dockers & Klobber - Amazing hauls! [​IMG] Eazy - that Lebowski sweater! [​IMG]

    School's kicked into high gear, so thrifting has been limited to once a week. Only found this tonight.

    PRL - not crazy quality, but nice detailing (side vents, ticket pocket, throat latch). BTW, how many fall SCs in too many?

    Lookin' good, teach! Every time that I wear a knit tie to school, one of my students will always say, "It looks like you have a sock around your neck!".

    Who's the one here who's into Polaroid land cameras?
    I'm hitting a SA that I think is having one in its monthly auction. I can get you some details and I'm happy to proxy a bid.
    PM if you want to discuss.

    Either your PTP or your shoulder has to be off - the PTP indicates it is about a size 33? I think it would be in boy sizes at that point. The Shoulders are more like what you'd see on a 42 or larger.

    If they are right, I think this suit has been heavily altered, and you will have trouble finding someone for it - even though it looks really nice.

    Deja vu.

    Didn't we have almost exactly this phenomenon with an incredibly similar suit a few hundred pages ago?

    When I saw that pit size, I couldnt help think of Brianpore. Then I couldn't help think: Where the hell is that broseph?

    Could be, I zoned out for a month and when I came back decided not to catch up on the thousands of posts I'd missed. :satisfied:
    I sure would love to see the man that actually needed that combo!

    Recently, I've sold a Brioni Sport button front on ebay for around $26 plus made a few bucks off of shipping. I was a bit disappointed...

    Does The Method work on silk?

    Ewwww, the thoughts his shaft and balls rubbing on it...*BARF[​IMG]

    I'm glad I'm not the only one here picking up ugly Karl Lagerfeld ties. lol

    In my experience, yes. I have tried several methods of getting stains out of silk ties. Perhaps 1 in 10 worked out.
