The liner should almost always be the same color as the ties dominant color. The typeface on the keeper and the layout is wrong as well as other things. Glad it can be returned!

Thanks. I think I will trust my instinct on real vs. fake more in the future.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe these are the only keepers used on Hermes ties.

 

The one like you bought has that kind of green-ish color on the keeper, which I've also seen fake Zegna and Armani ties with a very similar tag. Most likely all made in the same place.

^ive also seen the middle one in white. I believe those are mainly on the scarf ties.

Never pass up a good rice cooker. Tiger and Zojirushi are some of the best.





 

THRIFT PRICING?

 

Cool lining  

Had a good lunch.

I'd research that Casio GShock.  I believe it looks fake too.  What does the back of watch say?  The thing that throws me off, is the colour of the 3 "eyes" on the watch.  From the pic you posted, they look like different colours, and I would expect them to match the main LCD background colour.

Decidedly not thrift, but found a good seller of new vinyl - went on a mini-spending spree for some Blue Note titles.

Also a shout out to @ATLjon for a nice hook-up on some stacks of wax from the backs of the racks. !!

Those don't look like color # 8. Could they be the ultra rare #4 or # 2?

Yeah they're cigar. And they're erotic.

Great day with eazy and Silverwarebandit. So good that I missed my flight and very nearly relegated myself to the clutches of the Midwest. But I escaped with my life and thousands in loot.

Although I think they laugh at how much I'm willing to shell out on stuff.

Still, good times.
