Pop! Still hunting for an all aluminum model, but this will do well in the meantime.

I've given up on one of my local places a bunch of times. Something always keeps me coming back!

That's cuz your above your early to mid 20s tops (older and involvment and that's just crazy guys).

The releases your waiting on are already almost entirely sold to dudes who have deals with the boutiques and they turn around and sell them for like x10 the retail. Otherwise, the "bots" are like middle eastern computer farm workers that you pay, and their job is to hacked into the networks of Nike or whomever your poison may be, to cut you to the front of the line, giving you the best shot and probably still not getting what you want.

You are correct, Jompso. My single statement was just shedding light on the fact that velvet is not always 100% cotton. They DO make silk velvet, but it is dreadfully expensive. As a matter of fact, some of the fabric out there marketed as silk velvet has a small percentage of rayon in it. Velvet can also be made from linen, mohair, or wool. Yes, I am sure that you already know that. There again, I am just pointing these things out. Inorganic fibers like polyester, viscose, and acetate are sometimes used in conjunction with natural fibers in the creation of the velvet cloth. Again, I do not claim to be any kind of authority on cloth. For that matter, I am fairly certain that my knowledge on the subject is rather below average. I have just read way too many fabric content tags and make notes about such anomalies.

Oh 100% agreed and just for the record, due to me being not sure of the tone of your response. I never thought to or began to question the fact that silk was not a viable source fiber/Primary composition fiber/Sole composition, in regards to producing Silk. I just merely had never heard of this and was immediately super interested and wantted a Pm because once, aware, ownership became necessary.

Canali (brown label) that was very underpriced at consignment. My size, though I'm on the fence about keeping it. If so it will only be the third thrifted sport coat to make it into my closet.

For the longest time, I've admittedly never ever been Canali guy personally. Never desired to own, never saw one I needed to possesses, purchased piece a ton of pieces I coudl recnogize of definitely have a demand and market, purely for flip etc... except this one is fucking ridiculous, perfect jacket, and solidified the fact that my views have totally changed with their 1934 line. I saw these guys last night at 80% off and don't know how I showed the self control not to purchase....

 

(First pic is actually one of the various Eidos racks....which were also insanely nice)

Or you can always just opt to make sure that latter issue is never confronted in the first place..... fake books,made up courses, and zero enrollment isn't gonna pay for itself.... not exactly in line with the original point, but always a good life lesson to pass a long nonetheless...

Or were you trying to say that since it's just a finish, if it seems like it is velvet, has the correct composition then it is?

1. It's Velvet regardless. If your curious as to it's true composition, well that would be a little more complicated, probably not be easily found out. Earlier RLBL, with the Caruso tag still attach, obviously states composition of 100% Cotton, so mystery solved. These suits also are more or less just mediocre Caruso work, they are nothing special at all, thus the fabric being basic falls in line and makes perfect sense. Now after Ralph was somehow able to get those manufacturers to contractually agree to no longer place their manucfacturering tags inside the garments, the RLBL production also happened to get much much better, far greater quality. I dunno if your tags are cut or you know which you have, but if newer it could more likely be a cotton cash mix....maybe? I couldn't tell you for sure, probably never will. But that's what I can tell you.

No Loop? What loop are you referencing? The keeper? Cuz it's very much there. That shit's real, dunno what has you doubting.........and sorry zero comment on the other.

Judging by the angle of the twill, I'd say real.

He's referencing the thread loop that's usually under the blade folds but it could be on the other end as well. Either way, real in my opinion.

post #41578 of 51139
Bah. I left it. Someone here told me all real Hermes ties have a thread loop on the inside and top that you pull to tighten the stitching or something.

Or I'm completely mistaken?

Twill angle and color on the inside of the tie just point to real for me. I've only found like 5-6 personally but I can usually spot a fake Hermes pretty easily.
