    Is Canali worth picking up flip-wise?

    I've been contemplating this suit at the thrift for a while now, I like it but it seems short.
    I'd like to know I could get something back if it didn't work out.

    Obviously age/patten is a factor, but I've had bad luck selling other italian brands.

    I wash everything machine-washable right away. Trousers I always have cleaned right away. I don't really bother with suits/jackets.

    Ditto thrift god Nataku. If the jackets (or pants) look dirty is usually a sign they weren't taken care of and I'll pass on them. If you're lucky, you'll still find the dry cleaning tags on them.

    Suits shouldn't come in contact with bare skin when worn. If they do, it's just a little bit in a small area (maybe the edge of the cuff or the collar area). I've never ran into a suit/jacket where I felt the need to have it cleaned. Most people who buy Brioni/Kiton/Isaia/Zegna usually take good care of their stuff and most of the time have it cleaned before they donate anyway.
