  Check to see if the shirt is actually made in Italy, or if it's just the fabric. I have a Holt shirt with that situation.   I just grabbed a shirt and pants from the Holts Last Call outlet. The pants are made by Coppley, so I wouldn't be surprised if the made in Canada shirts and suits/SCs were as well.
My experience with re-weavers has been that if it the hole is in an inconspicuous area, it might be OK. But I wouldn't want a re-weave mole right in the place someone will look when shaking my hand. And $100 to re-weave a light blue suit I would never have occasion to wear didn't seem worthwhile.   Interesting note about the textile re-manufacturers. Just wish the thrift store employees took half as much care in looking for holes as they do in marking up 'desirable'...
OK. Number one thrifting pet peeve. It's not volume flippers, loud and crazy people, non-showerers, people who insist on testing stereos by playing them at max volume for way too long... none of that.   Number one pet peeve is rich assholes who donate their destroyed clothes to these stores, where they sit and clog up shelf space for weeks. Had to pass on a gorgeous Isaia suit in my size because of a dime-sized hole in the sleeve and a Paul Smith jacket because of...

  Considering they're a $500 reproduction of $20 bundeswehr sneakers, I don't think it's the shoes that are being abused.     Also, I don't want my dislike of those shoes to distract from how awesome that CdGS shirt is.
  Blast, I've been looking for something identical to that! Excellent find.     Beach buff bro, beach buff.
I respect the effort and the fact that he didn't pay the exorbitant MMM price for them, but I'm no fan of the originals as well.   If those pants didn't have the selvedge (or whatever that is), I'd say wear them rolled up with black bucks. But then he'd be showing his ankles and SW&D would chase him like Frankenstein's monster.
Noob - I like it right until the ankles. The selvedge(?) on those pants reminds me of those knock-off Adidas stripe track pants I wore in elementary school, and not a fan of the shoes.  
  Woah! PMed.
Two things:   1) Spoo is a good dude.   2) When you pick up some croc loafers you want to make a shit ton of money on, where do you go? Being this thread's go-to luxury expert is good for him too.   But having said that, Coach really isn't a good brand (anymore, at least), and those were double-pleated pants. It shouldn't have even gone as far as the authenticity check.
