    Got a Kiton suit and a cashmere brioni SC yesterday with some really small staining, copped anyway because they were insanely cheap and duh. I've seen lots of methods for getting stains out of shirts and such, but what about SCs and Suits?

    DANKA!

    PS I will post pics soon.

    Happy birthday spoo!!!

    Found some really cool PRL made in china linen/cotton blend DB jackets in a marshalls today. 40R too tight 42R too long. Thing was so cool though. DB, peak lapels, action back (?!?!?!), unvented, surgeons cuffs.

    I really wanted it to fit. It was 70 bucks! If anyone wants a proxy. There was a 40 and 42.

    It was this guy in cream: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=31222766
    (Except I thought it was made in china, whatever. I can check it out again tomorrow if anyone wants. Should have taken pictures.)

    Looks like it was vented after all.

    Isn't the HF on the trouser clasp the maker of the clasp and not Hickey Freeman?

    I have a pair I bought in Japan around 2002 or so that look like this. Same style labels and such. Not as light as those, though. I'd guess late 90's on yours.

    Vintage Levi's. The lapels were telling me no, but the velvety material and the pockets were telling me yes. The styling on that label was giving me a half chub, so I copped.

    I would just take them to a trusted Dry Cleaners. With high $$ stuff like Kiton and Brioni... The cleaners win, with their experience and technology. My pops once thrifted a Kiton SC for cheap, but it was stained. We were hesitant to take it to the cleaners, but luckily we have one we trust well. It came out beautiful. Ended up flipping for a huge profit.

    Interesting. I have never seen this "Silver" before either, and I'm a Zegna Fanatic. I've seen that sort of plastic/metal round crest on ties before, I believe they were released Spring 2013.

    Lately, Zegna has been sort of experimenting with new labels / logos / etc. Their most recent one is a plain diagonal "Ermenegildo Zegna" on the inside of the tip lining, but it's not the "selvedge strip" logo like they've been using for some time. They also bumped their price up to $205 in the past 6-9 months.
