but are those buttons original ferragamo or did somebody aftermarket those? and where can i get a set - i've looked and i've been frankly stumped

They aren't branded in any way, so it's hard to say, but they fit the coat well, so I assume they came with it.

X-post from fake or real thread, only x-posting as it's time sensitive.. appreciate the help as always!

Hi all, could really use your help with these... I think they're legit, and have all the right details, but want to make sure - have RB etching on left lens, B&L RayBan Italy on the upper bridge section, Rayban nose bridge pieces, legit model number/arm stampings, etc.

The main thing holding me up on being certain is the arms - as shown in last photos:

Polo Ralph Lauren silk herringbone jacket

Saldarini silk wool scarf

Panta cashmere knit tie

Drakes X LuxeSwap pocket square

You are very welcome! You wear it well. As I said before, you do a lot to help many of us here (including me) and it was a (semi-random) act of kindness. My stepmother was a wonderful southern lady who could be the kindest mostly gentle lady, but she also had quite a bit of toughness in her. She died 3 days years and she was always telling me how important random acts of kindness are.

A couple weeks ago, Dr. L sent me a Zegna Couture shirt just because it was my size and he thought I might like it. It was an act of kindness and I'm just doing the same. Someone paid for my coffee at aStarbucks drive-thru the other day. The $6 they spent made me smile. So, I thought I would pay it forward and hoped this small gesture would do the same for you. Plus, I'm sure my stepmother Betty would be happy.

Had a lot of time to thrift this January due to slow start of the school semester. 





 

 

 

 

Gant wax jacket, bummer that it´s too large for me.


 

A bright polo corduroy cap so you don´t get capped during hunting season.

 


Lacoste vintage (?) corduroy jacket.

 

Henry Lloyd quilted vest, not sure if I can pull this one off. 
 




Polo jacket for ages 10-12. Designer clothes for children make feel a bit weird.

 

 

Mabro jacket. Perhaps a dumb question...is this an odd suit jacket or a sportcoat?

 

 





 


A couple of Canali suits
 




 

 

No idea if the Zegna or Talbott are fakes, opinions of those better informed are much appreciated!

Nice haul! Zegna is real, just an older label. Nobody fakes Robert Talbott. It's a beautiful tie.

What da fuck? A noob @Bon Vivant Life posts those great finds (including Hermes ties that I still have never thrifted!)! I hope most of that was consignment instead of actual thrift. Otherwise, I'm doing this all wrong.

I own a painting company, got called out to bid a house where elderly woman had passed away. Met her daughter who wanted interior repainted so they could put it on market. House was empty except for one room, which had everything left over after family had gone through and taken what they wanted. Daughter told me not to worry, she would have room empty before I started, was going to put it on Craigslist and first person who offered her $200 could have it all. I said, "Let me save you the trouble, I'll give you $200 right now". She refused, would only take $100 from me. Lucky me

Straight up thrift.....what got me into thrifting clothes was I used to stop in at local GW to grab some books. Was walking out one day and girl passes me with bin full of ties. So I peek in and first thing I see is an Hermes. Then another, and another.....9 total. Also grabbed a few Zegnas, a few Brioni, a Canali, and a Kiton. Must have come from same donor. Went in just an average citizen looking for a book to read, came out a raging thriftaholic.

They look ok, but that RB etching is sticking out too much from where I am. Can you feel it on the outside of the glass?
