    You'll definitely have PMs, but on the off chance you don't, pick it up anyway.
    I will if someone wants it, I am not in this for the cheese and it is too big for me.

    Four new-old-stock Paul Stuart shirts in my size. One club collar, one button down, two point collars.

    Anyone care to guess the vintage? They were each originally priced $32.

    Definitely a legit tag. The lining on my Beaufort is a soft tweed woven wool, so not exactly soft, but warm. There's a couple different kinds of zip-out liners, one that's just a shearling-looking liner and one that's a polarquilt quilted vest like I got from someone here. Best outerwear out there for the money, IMO.

    This is ironic, but in my short time in a store yesterday, I left a shearling-looking Barbour liner vest. When I saw it, I dashed through the store looking for the coat, but it was nowhere to be found. If you end up picking this coat up, let me know if you want me to go back and check the size for you. I'd be happy to proxy it if you wanted. It was roughly €7.


    Good to know. I have only ever found a tie from the Sartoriale line. It is really nice and definitely better than the grupo forall stuff, like you said.


    I'll definitely grab some pics, no matter what it is as now I'm curious. I'm 99% sure it will turn out to be nothing but a huge disappointment, but there's always a hope. You reminded me that i have a couple of phone numbers of guys here in order to message pictures of stuff I find for them. I have an iPhone, so as long as it's on iMessage, they're free :D

    Catside I would get the Zegna Couture jacket repaired if possible. Zegna Couture from relatively recent label is pretty much fairy dust man. German Sheppard bite - do not like the sound of it. At least the jacket is dark, maybe a reweaver could mend and leave virtually no trace?
