    I have a question on this find: Dolce & Gabbana mainline suit. Took a small gamble on this. Definitely not a Brioni/Kiton quality-wise. No handwork at all that I can spot. Half-canvass construction. Not sure if it's the real deal. Trousers waistband lining says "Dolce & Gabbana" in black lettering on a white background. Both trousers and jacket have the label in the photo. Lining says "Dolce & Gabbana". Perhaps one of our resident experts can chime in and help me out.


    Nat, thats real, dates to about 2002 ish.

    Thanks (to Mainy as well) for the help! I'm kinda lost when it comes to big-label fashion stuff that is often counterfeited.

    That's insane! That there is probably a once-in-a-lifetime score right there! I could use one of those right about now and pay my car off..... [​IMG]

    Since a decent one runs about $800-$1000, you could easily make those a reality!

    Lurked on and off for a bit now, decided to post after this. Found a Sy Devore Blazer in good condition today that fit's me almost perfectly (normally wear a 42r, not sure of this one's measurements), any idea what this would be worth?

    Best day of thrifting ever. Picked up an excellent condition brooks brothers makers grey pinstripe suit. 39r and 32waist. I am normally a 40l, but this was just to good to pass up. May be willing to consider offers. I will post pictures tomorrow!

    The second time I hit up a Talize in my city (Mississauga, Ontario), I found a very nice Mexx brown pinstripe suit (44R, 36x30 pants). Normally $30, but since it was everything half-price that day, it was only $15. I've also found some pretty good dress shirts (Boss, Sean John, Hilfiger), but nothing truly mind-blowing.

    ps if anyone is a 40 short and you are in the toronto area PM me and i will tell you where i saw a brand new Kiton 2 button single breasted orphan suit jacket today.
    its a 42 but runs small to a 40,short stuff is a hard sell so i didnt bother picking it up (yes thrifting is that good here that i leave kiton stuff behind)...dont ask me to proxy its out of my way,waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of my way.
