@SpooPoker or any one that is good with leather; is the leather on these anything special? I need to clean these guys up a little bit
Small guys Zegnatex 30
Big guys PRL corn linen 48L
Big guys Oxxford Crest 46L
I've handled a fake one and, though not as clean sounding as the real deal, they have a distinct ping as well.
Best way to tell is definitely via the serial numbers being too perfectly lined up/engraved.
Unfortunately, I'd have to agree in thinking that one one is fake as well @freehand
riri zips are nice enough but they're like european ykk. i've seen many a facconable windbreaker with riri's that are an instapass for me.
i recently saw a quicksilver reversible jacket with a riri zip, made in china. who cares?
what's funny is that leather vest has a liner that looks like it's supposed to be next-to-skin. if it's a thing, it's def niche. breakin the law indeed.
Anyone know anything about Dupont lighters? Picked this up today - I've tried googling the product number (4FK12A8) which brings up a few results but none that look exactly like this particular model.
I'm not sure whether I have something really desirable or just a bog standard model. Does the little hallmark on the bottom indicate that it's a precious metal (I really am clueless)? The instruction book suggests this is late 80s.
EDIT: A bit more research suggests this is a fake. Here's a useful link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/gds/ST-Dupont-Fake-Lighter-Guide-Line-2-/10000000177716840/g.html
I wish I could say that this was a cheap mistake, but it fucking wasn't. Fuck it. I think I'll know a real one when I see it now though.
This is 100% Fake. Laque de chine "Chinese Lacquer" looks completely different, yours is their "Diamond Head" pattern. The stamp on the bottom is the autentication mark for the Lacquer see below.
That is a Ligne 1, but the stamp is the same.
