The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2794

post #41896 of 51492
Picked up the Aldens I posted about yesterday. Medallion Tip Bal Oxford in black calf. For $12 I'm not complaining.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


This is 100% NA cause this sucker fits like a glove. Canali brown label. Maybe the coolest Canali I've ever picked up. Patch pockets. Side vents. Wool/silk/linen blend. Lining needs a touch of work.

Pic of materials tag and back side of the tip will help. Looks good so far though.

That's awesome. I've picked up several Canalis in recent months and am often impressed. Some great patterns...

Yeah Canali's fabric selections really improved after the switch from Blue label to Brown... I believe that was around like 2004? Much more plaids and checks, more flannels and cashmere blends. Their styling seemed to take a boost as well.

Found 2 massimo bizzocchi ties with open rectangle ends, anyone recognize this style? Also, a nice pocket square with the tag cut out

Plus a PRL Field coat and flannel shirt, a Brooks OCBD, a couple of no name Italian ties and a Brooks Bros pink cotton stripe and some A&E Manchesters that might work with a sock liner or extra insole.

Beautiful sports coat.  Is it a light wool, so one can wear it in Florida?

I have a buddy who isn't a thrifter who found some Ray-Bans and has doubts as to their authenticity. I'm pretty sure they're good but I'm not a sunglasses expert... would somebody mind giving an expert opinion?

^ Let's see a close up shot of the "Ray Ban" on the front lens, and also is there little "RB" etchings on the sides of the lenses by the frames? Those should be there if they have the original RB lenses. If not the rest looks okay but I'm not an expert on that model just Wayfarers/Clubmasters/Aviators.

 

Also, bend the arm so the hinge is exposed and make sure its nice and solid, not some cheap hinge.

post #41908 of 51492

As requested: pictures of the hinge and logo:

 

 

 

I don't know what makes a hinge good but the action seems smooth. I couldn't get a photo of the etching on the lens, but it's there.

What @Letric said.

 

Aside from that, I often see fakes screw up the logo on the arm and just based on looking at RB's stock photos they match up well.

 

I also wouldn't be too concerned with this model being faked. Don't take this the wrong way, but that model is one of their cheaper ones, and given the price and popularity difference between those and the Wayfarers/Aviator, I don't think anyone would bother faking them.

Yeah those hinges are the good solid style, not the cheapo screw-on flimsy ones. Printing on the lens looks good.
