The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1528

post #22906 of 60479
THANK YOU SO MUCH to @highvoltorb for such an awesome Thriftmas gift! I will post pics later. But, I'm wearing one of the ties right now! I love everything. But, the most exciting and fantastic thing is the pair of 1968 Nixon inauguration Cufflinks that were for the Inaugural Ball on January 20, 1969! I am a serious political history buff and I am very humbled that you gave these to me! Seriously!

If this has been settled then sorry for beating a dead horse, these are fake. Depending on where you live some people snatch up fakes on craigslist, of course you want to sell them as such.

Bow Ties, who's got some? Kind of in a bow tie fad right now.

 welcome back!

Thanks Wes!

I take a look in every once in a while, but this thread moves at a crazy rate. A couple days away and I'm 300 posts behind and lost on the current topics.

...once in a while when I need some encouragement because I'm dealing with a slump at the thrifts or a lunatic on ebay, I come in to see how hard you or Matthew are working; it gives me motivation.



...and for those who were looking into the Balmains for me, here's some more pics...

Sorry I didn't see your post while I was creating mine. Thanks for the input; from the amount of fake LV bags I see walking around here, they'll probably sell fast.

Sorry man.

True is most cases. There are a couple exceptions. There is a repro company called Tiger Stripe Products that made well-made repros in the 80's that used tags. They're worth $50-$150, so not the home run that the original is but still well worth picking up if you find one. I think they have a small white collar label and will have this label sewn onto the back of the bottom placket. There is another variation of this label that has a small black printed "tiger stripe"stripe on the label that is used on jackets and pants. This label is probably different as it is from a hat. But yes, as far as I know, the original high $$$ stuff won't have any labels, just a black size stamp on the inside near the collar.

I've seen a few "men's or women's" posts lately... do people not know the buttoning convention? From the wearer's perspective, left over right buttoning = men's, right over left = women's.

@ Nataku @tweets

Thanks guess I'll go as Rambo for holoween next year. Actually Rambo doesn't wear a shirt so that's out. No big deal over $5. It is hard to tell if the pattern is it though when your holding it but now I now how the tagging works I won't screw up again.

Ps @capnwes thanks for the awnser on the suit label.

To be fair, this doesn't always hold true though. 95 percent of the time it does, but not always.
