    Mine is a Zegna 3 button dual vent BLACK sports coat of an even silk/cashmere blend. It has a beautiful sheen and interesting pattern to the fabric. I know lot's of people don't like black but I have plenty of occasion to wear it on days where I plan to go out in the evening with a solid grenadine tie, and odd trousers.

    What is your best clothing item?

    Loro Piana "Downtown" coat. Great coat, and oh so warm during the coldest weather.

    Aero Long Half Belt leather jacket. Made in Scotland and will be a great jacket as long as I'm able to fit in it.

    Brunello Cuncinelli Zip Cashmere Cardigan I thrifted. I had decent clothes before, now I have one actually finely made article of clothing.

    interesting that three of us (those that chose to respond with something about clothes they own and not their bodies or clothes stolen from women) have thrifted items that we condsider the best we own....

    ...better women than men, IMO...not that I'm making any implications about you.

    The finest pieces of clothing that I own AND wear are bespoke suits from a tailor in my hometown.
