Ahh I didn't notice the red until I saw you and the other poster mention it.
Haha if nothing else it could be one of the rare fake g shocks that is isn't a frogman.

Mine has Casio on the back but not on the front I don't think. When I get home tonight/tomorrow I'll grab some pics if I remember.

My squad's ready to get kitted out.

Holy shit

So, I'm new (obviously). Also, forewarning: I like words, sorry.

 

I've read through a lot of this thread, but not all of it, and I've learned a decent amount already. So, I decided to try my hand at seeing what I can find in my town. I've gone out a few times over the past few weeks, but haven't really found anything. I'm in Tallahassee, and I just don't see much good quality clothing going to thrift stores (lots of Haggar, Faded Glory, Mossimo, etc). Of course, it could also be that I'm not great at knowing what to look for yet (more likely). However, I think (hope) I found a couple "good" finds:

 

 

I actually found this jacket before the discussion about BURBERRY vs 'Burberrys' in this thread from the other day. So, I knew it was pre-1999, but I wasn't aware that it was possibly made outside the UK until that discussion. Prompted by the discussion I dug through the jacket some more, and found a "Made in USA" tag.

 

Checking online, the only reference to this jacket I could find was on eBay. A beige one marked "rare" sold for $61 a few months ago. And, when I checked a few days ago, a red version was selling for around $110. Don't know if this jacket is actually "rare" or not. But, I now see a few more have popped up on eBay, and are being sold as "vintage". Any help on whether this is a good find or not would be appreciated. In all honesty, I'll likely keep it for myself as it fits (and my gf insists I wear it).

At the same store I also found an Eddie Bauer goose down stuffed jacket. As with the Burberry, I didn't find much online about this jacket. The numbers on the tag kept returning results relating to "long sleeved shirts".

 

I believe I found a listing or two for what looks like the same jacket on eBay a few days ago. It didn't seem to be selling for any crazy amount. But, I liked it, and it fits somewhat alright (sleeves are a bit short when arms are by my side or extended out).

I did find a pair of Air Jordan II Retro in Red and Black at one store. But, while I was hemming and hawing on whether I should get them to flip them (not my size) someone snagged them. They were in great shape, too. Well, guess it's a learning experience.

 

I'd appreciate any feedback you could give me on the two jackets I got. Hopefully I'll eventually come across something a bit better than these offerings in the near future. Thanks.

Not an expert but have sold my fair share of high $$ Polo items. Leather, Commemorative, dated 1990 and has the "suicide" skier on the patch? I think it's safe to assume the latter.

 Does anyone know if Isaia sends replacement buttons?  Grabbed a SC online on SO5 for  not quite the 10% rule (it was 12%) but there was no packet of buttons.  I contacted SO5 but I doubt they will be able to help.

They got some cool stuff tho. Fun to look at and hard to leave.
