post #16366 of 51058

So guys, it has been dry for about a month and a half in my area. I came across this "Hermes" bag today that I want your opinion on. I question whether or not it is real. Any insight would be amazing!

@Fueco Thoughts? Looks sketch to me but I've never handled one of their soft shells before, so idk.

On that patagonia, do the zippers all work? Do you see any flaws? Cut tag = irregular ime.

@SCoNE, looks good from here. Can you snap a pic of the side of the tag with a style number on it?

"Fuck You" tie is ebay money all day long.

 

@Doomsticks , you might have just doubled my profit. I decided to try a quarter scoop of oxy instead of dish soap on the scarves since I'm only into them for $6 total. They looked great coming out of the wash. I'll post before and after pics when they are dry. Thanks a TON for the tip.

 

 

Also, a big shout out to @bpk1 for the badasss St. Alban's tweed. I need to take up the sleeves about an inch, but it's a great fit everywhere else, and I absolutely love it. I'm going to be looking out for you, dude.

 

I LOVE THIS THREAD!

It looks old. Greenish selvedge. Heavy with thinnish aluminum buttons. Odd upward facing hooks on either side.





EDIT: selvedge is brown and red

It's fucking sick, that's what it is.

I'd say just based on the stitching fuckups it's fake, but that would be the only way Id know how to authenticate it. Know nothing about Hermes leather.

Stitching looks terrible. I vote fake as fuck.

My wife thrifted 100% of this and did not even text to ask questions. Give the girl a thumb if she did good. One stop.

Excellent. I wanted to be sure I wasn't the only one that thought so.

The vicuna chronicles has come to a halt. I emailed Brioni for some info but I don't expect them to get back to me. I had the idea of calling ahead to the store in NYC and bringing the tie in but I feel weird doing that. I found some shots of a Brioni vicuna sportcoat and I compared them with the tie. Tie on bottom jacket on top. What do you guys think?

I don't know that much about Hermes Bags / Luggage, but have come across 1 fake purse before. Usually the hardware and stitching is what gives it away... and of course a shitty lining.

 

The leather has a nice grain, and the hardware has the right "Look"... Cant tell how heavy duty they are from photos though. But yeah some of the stitching looks a bit off. Also the main flap on that bag... The way it's cut seems slightly off. What's the inside lining like?

If you happen to live in a big city where they actually have an Hermes store, you should go in there and examine the quality levels of their bags. There's an Hermes store in Bellvue, WA that I've been meaning to visit for quite some time now.

Does this look legit?
