    Yeah...right at the neckline tag says made in England. I will have post more photos of this Corneliani jacket when I get back home this evening. If anyone knows anything about Corneliani made in England inquiring minds would like to know.

    Sounds like Frankenstein to me. Do all the labels look original? Or does either the collar tag or the inner pocket tag look like they've been refastened.

    In a similar vein, I assume folks know that some disreputable ebay sellers (which necessarily excludes present company) take tags off roached out high end items and fasten them to low quality items, then resell them as the genuine article. Caveat emptor.

    That feel when you find a sick piece of Savile Row bespoke that is just slightly not your size. :fu: :fu: :fu:

    Also, richnet12, that is not the Ralph you are looking for.

    Dammit, i had a Lionel Ritchie song for this.... [​IMG] - Shit Ain't cheap. i know this because i can get it. but why? Vintage is more plain unless you pay $$$$$.

    That hand stitching... I think You could do better. The heritage is nice, but the cut and quality?????? looks rough as F#*k. with a boxy cut.

    I'm not sure what your response is supposed to mean.

    Corneliani navy pin stripe suit jacket which says "Made in England" on the inside collar. Let me know if any of you have some insight on this made in England item by the Italian designer?

    Well, the Corneliani label says Made in Italy.
    Have had PRL Corneliani made in Slovakia, but it only said Slovakia, not Slovakia and Italy.

    Remember it's bespoke. No template. It was cut to fit precisely the proportions of the person for whom it was bespoken. That may make it look boxy on a mani. Or maybe that person was himself boxy. But don't fault the master tailor that made it.
    Content tag is genuine Corneliani. And as Cap says, it says made in Italy.
    Yeah, I think someone sewed the collar thing later so they could hang it on a hook. Which might explain what happened to the original.

    Sure, but it takes more than a London Tailor's tag to impress me. and i see all the "Details".
    it's a nice Jacket. I still think it is rough. nice pics though. Don't start me on the buttons........
