No problem. Your pics weren't too bad, though, just try to have them right side up lol. Good finds! Check your PM's.
never heard of gaviota apparel but there's a gaviota beach north of santa barbara, ca. next time show the buttons, etc. i see a logo but can't make it out. sorry to say from here the embroidered nike logo looks fake as fuck to me.
early ralph lauren used that all caps logo as shown on your tie. and ralphie didn't sell direct back then, he went through mens' shops and dept stores. i suspect if you research the additional tag you'll find an old men's shop, probably now defunct, that stocked rl. i'm absolutely in love with that print btw.
The buttons say Nike
Thanks on the RL info I'll see what I can come up with.
i really do love the tie. might be i'll send a pm...
yes thanks for showing the snaps. also look at the zipper. what is that? look back at the embroidered "E", see how the middle "tine" is off-center? and the tines look sort of long? and the upper point of the swoosh isn't crisp? google the nike logo and compare - i would bet money that the vest is bootleg. is there an interior tag? just some grist to consider...
fwiw i kopped a fake-ass "vintage" nike windbreaker just this weekend. spent a stupid amount of time trying to figure it out too. it happens.
I was able to haggle them down to about $80 each if I bought at least 10. Couldn't figure out why they wouldn't go down more when one of them remarked that stuff would be donated after the sale. The sale ended today so I hope I might find them soon in a thrift.
