Wasn't the French Company license with Macy's?
You and I can trade gifts, for fucking sure we can.
(except maybe the due date for signing up for the gift exchange)
I think I see some back-stitching on that patch (where they stitched back over previous stitching) - if so, dead give-away for being a replica. LV stitching should be meticulous with no overlap. But for 49 cents, why not, right? I bought a fake purse on purpose for $8 just to bring it home and use the "how to spot a fake LV" guide to see what really made it a fake, and feel way more confident now that I'd be able to spot one vs. taking a gamble. Plus, my sister wanted the one I bought even though I told her it was fake, and other folks do as well (I would not list it on ebay tho).
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...
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.
speaking of meetups, I am in LA for work and met up with the one and only @Jompso for dinner. Sushi @ Sugarfish. 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.Warning: Spoiler!

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.
@Nataku or anyone else learned in the ways of foreign military garb. What do I have here?
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.
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)
