My 5.0 is falling apart, so it's time for a 6.0, I guess.

But it seems they're only being sold on "pistonported .com", which I think is connected Scooterville, MN...

Anyone got any insight on this?


And does anyone wear a 6.0?

I think the North American distributor stopped selling them last year. Still made in Italy but harder to get in the states now.

No US distributor. I got the email awhile back about them leaving the North American market.

I don't believe Corazzo ever had an Italian base. The company used the name and symbol due to their Italian heritage. The company was based in Portland, OR before it closed. I believe there was a manufacturing facility in Mankato, MN. Unless it is reborn through its Australian subsidiary, I think we have seen the end of Corazzo.

Yup. Merely "Itallian-esque"

Just to wrap this up, I bought an Oxford waxed cotton jacket. Understated and retro cool - well, actually, it's really warm.

Vintage, second hand? Or new London Fog? Very Happy
