The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 1886

I didn't hit any thrifts today, but I found a Mountain Hardwear Windstopper tech vest in my size while we were out walking the dog this evening. I'll call that a win for the 1.25 hours we were out for.

I don't like to bet I'm not a gambler. I will say as I said before that it should be gold. There are good counterfeits out there and some it takes the slightest mistake in detail to catch. You should attest to this fact with your experience.That "All" chanel no matter what it is should have stamping that corresponds in color to the hardware no matter what. If it's got gold hardware the stamp is gold if it's got silver hardware the stamp is silver. There is no variation in this ever. You will never find them backwards or reversed unless it's solid leather and it will be sometimes be embossed into the leather. This is the main reason I believe it to be a counterfeit or copy. This practice hasn't changed in the last 25 years.

I saw, and passed on, two fake PRL items today. Does that count? #chanel

The stamp IS silver, roughly the same as the buckle.

OK it looked gold. The other thing is the registered trademark circle looks as though it sits to high and the circle should be level with the bottom of the l. Have you had luck finding it? I went through all of chanel 2002 and couldn't find it on any model. I only saw 5 belts that year.

I browsed through one of the spring/summer galleries but that was about all I've had time for. I Haven't dealt with accessories all the often so I don't know all the ins and outs, but I've seen a few different placements for the circle.

I've seen other belts with similar buckle styles though (I mean the way in which the buckle actually works, not necessarily that specific buckle).

Anyone else addicted to the WSOP app? I got high selling a $40 suit for $1100 once, but nothing beats bankrupting people on that app, even though it's play money.

Haha, no, but it does remind me of blowing through my living money in college on PokerStars and FullTilt. I could have eaten less velveeta if those never existed.
