i read the quality is comparable to CP. Not sure whether thats a good or bad thing. Only seen pix of a couple of sweaters. Looks a little like SI to me.

Nah, quality no where near CP.

Saw some MO in Brum few weeks back, looked ok at best. Personally I think MO are trying to resurect a lost cause. 10yrs ago yes, but not now MO has snuffed it.

Totally agree. Better off looking on ebay for some of the "vintage" osti imo

The stuff i saw was vile, but they fooled enough stupid retailers to order it.
So fair play to them, and shame on clueless the retailers.

one retailer told me anything from the last collection will become a collectors piece since he was the father of CP, SI, Boneville and others. apparently Massimo Osti's sons will be introducing a new collection in s/s2007. Should be interesting.

Massimo Ostis son has done just that - teamed up with the brand MA.Strum and is releasing a Archive collection - will hit stores in July / Aug.

Seen pics and the jackets are awesome - old fabrics, styling and more importantly hold a MASSIMO OSTI ARCHIVE label. A/W is the first season and the distribution / number of jackets in the UK is limited. Already put my name down for a couple.
