Hey Everyone

I am very new to this forum but I am trying HARD to find out some information about two pieces of clothing I just purchased from a friend of mine (for very little money).

The other day I bought a number of clothing items from a friend including 2 Kiton shirts, a Zilli dress shirt, a Gucci dress shirt and two blazers for around 400.00. I thought I got a hell of a deal. All in great condition.

Anyway the two items in question are the jackets.

The first item is a brown suede blazer, beautiful and seems to be extremely high quality. The label says "Schimmel Homme." I am pretty knowledgeable about clothing but I had never heard of Schimmel before. Anyone know anything about Schimmel Homme?

The second is an Etro suede blazer. Now I know that Etro is known for their conservative outer and extravagant inside, but this was a very interesting piece. On the outside, conservative brown suede. But on the inside the entire lining is covered in musical notes with of course the large Etro Milano patch. It looks like sheet music for the piano. Very beautiful and very interesting. The tag says "Musical Stripe." Again I researched and found absolutely nothing. Anyone ever seen or heard of anything like this?

I would really like to know about the jackets so if anyone has any knowledge about these please let me know!

Thanks a lot!!

--Eric

Either these jackets are rare or one of a kind, or I am just not looking in the right place. Anyone have ANY insight on these pieces of clothing?

the etro one is just the lining they chose - i mean, they go with lots of different color and stripe combinations. yours just happens to be music notes.
