Thank you both, I'm still educating myself on LV so I appreciate the tips, I have gone into the store and played with some products, that definitely helps determine authenticity. I also tried listing a fake item once .. they will suspend your account...

Im already sending the homie @jompso something for sure.
Forgot to mention, The real version of that LV with the kiss lock (Cigarette pack holder) has no patch on the outside, and the interior is purple and has silver writing embossed (SAKSFIFTHAVE) If you find any small leather goods with this ripped up purple silky/satin looking lining your good. The inside is pretty worn on the sometimes, but if you know like i know, you good.

Spent most of the weekend catching up on house stuff, putting together a new lighting setup.  Did kop two Luxire dress shirts at $2.50 a pop - good pickup?

Dear Thriftmas Claus: (Click to show)

I'm not super picky, anything will be appreciated.  I don't wear a lot of suits, fairly casual workplace.  As far as clothing goes, cashmere ties/scarves, wool ties, leather gloves, flat front pants, belts, blazers, anything Barbour.  Nonclothing - automatic watches, anything with an art deco of midcentury modern influence.  Also a fan of interesting local coffees.  Really, anything is cool.

Sofa King good.  Did some thrifting, 2 hours, $50, and ~10 decent items: Apolis Activism swim trunks, Stefano Ricci dress shirt, lululemon L/S metal vent tech shirt, Southern Tide shorts, RLBL moto denim, burberry l/s button down, paradise found xl, hartford linen, and patagonia zip off tech pants.

Re: Luxire - it's just online MTM so not great resale value. They stock some great cloths/ fabrics though so if it fits you you may have done ok. They're an affiliate vendor here and can pretty much make anything you can think of. I love em.

Great meet up and great dinner and convo. First person I've met from here, nice to put a personality and face to a screen name.

First part is a quilted jacket / liner(?). I am not sure if this is a stand-alone piece or a liner.

It's labeled GE SPEKON and has some amazing RIES zippers.

 

 

They don't zip or fasten together. However, when the Spekon is placed within the Gerardi, you get something that could easily brave the Arctic tundra. Any thoughts? Probably available.

Bad. Ass.

I think it's the same as I found, but mine had been dyed black. Mine had german flags on the shoulders which I removed (someone has prolly done it on yours too)

You think it's him? I wouldn't have taken advantage of another members mistake if I had known ... this guys user name is divec without the 's'. Hope it's not his, I would have expected him to know it's sartorio with an 'r'.
