Is this Prorsum? It doesn't say Prorsum anywhere on the tags but it looks similar

Decent stuff.


Zelli croc, full strap. Some small issues, but they're lovely.


And then my low ball ethrift came in today.
Gorgeous long sleeve v neck Irish tweed button down blazer

+1 on what Fueco said. 70's vintage. In a couple months, that will do pretty well. Condition is everything though. Make sure there are no repairs, holes or heavy wear. Size is a factor too with vintage outdoor stuff. Sizes M-XL do better than XS and S.

They changed to this label in the early 80's.


LOL, yeah... It was 49 degrees this morning.

Hit a few stores today:

 

Pop on Luciano Barbera:

 

 

 

Pop on Brunello Cucinelli:

 

 

 

There's no stains on the Cucinelli, the camera just makes it look weird because I still suck at taking pictures. I also picked up a few pairs of AE, currently unavailable because I have a few friends in those sizes who need wardrobe upgrades. If they pass I might post pictures. My most interesting find, however, was this:

 

 

 

 

This was found on the ground in a high-traffic area. Anyone know how to verify authenticity? The flash doesn't capture how it sparkles, but it's definitely not costume jewelry. I don't know enough to figure out that it's not cubic zirconia or moissanite, and I don't know any jewelers so I don't want to risk having it swapped for a CZ if I take it into one to get authenticated.

A little history been wanting a cuci piece for a while. Did some research and decided to go with a cashmere sweater. Then had a great few months selling with SPOO so I decided to go for the signature piece.
Well, I can tell you This thing is fucking amazing.

I had to pay up for this and it hurt but this is billionaire type clothing. I highly recommend picking one up if you have the means.

You don't have to leave it at a jeweller to get it authenticated; they can tell you right off what is is. I found a ring once and brought it to a jeweller; found out it was white sapphire not diamond. It took him 3 seconds.

1 and 3 yes... However, cubic zirconia can scratch glass.

Here is the Louis Vuitton trunk from my previous post about the craigslist ad. Pretty rough but the majority of the canvas is still intact. LV signature rivets around the hardware. Killer monogram on the side and in the bottom it has the address of the Louis Vuitton boutique it wS purchased at which wS 454 Strand in London England. Bunch of awesome history in this.
