I remember this parka well, because at the time I was working in a place that had dark ceramic floors, the heating was on the blink and so was wearing it all the time. Could follow this trail of white chicken feathers from everywhere I'd been. Threw it away in the end. FWIW I know other people who have Chinese made down filled garments, and usually don't have the same problems AFAIK. Don't generally buy them myself.
Designed by Boggi in Milan. Assembled in China. "Please do not pull these feathers out." Reminds me of a down parka I bought in Dalian for 400 yuan, The thing was constantly leaking feathers through the fabric, and was rather embarrassing with the mess it made, like Sesame Street's Big Bird during moulting season.
The dot matrix printer printed tag looks about right for high-end Italian tailored garment. Sure that's the sort of detail they don't usually counterfeit. I'd say it's OK.
I'm pretty sure that's real. "VIP Sample" along with a return address and phone number on a sewn-in tag, and anyway "BURBERRY PRORSUM" is spelled correctly here. Presumably this was something they kept for showing to their baller VIP by appointment customers.
Yeh, one pocket is higher than the other. If that had been Ralph Lauren or something, likely would have been reject. And the chipped popper buttons as well on a new item, the QC must be rather poor.
Once this clusterfuck ends, one way or the other. That will be the end of "ToJ" very likely.
I don't usually dine in expensive restaurants that have Peking duck on the menu. The fish was awesome, but didn't think to take a photo. Most of the other meat dishes I've posted are Mongolian, like cleaved sheep skull and vertebrae.
Supposedly discounted new LV belts on Ebay, I'd just assume they're knock-off. Same with Herm├Ęs "H" belts, etc.
Looks like some sort of black pudding or blood sausage or "blutwurst".
