Mental multi-tasking is a blessing or a curse depending on how success driven you tend to be. For most competent thrifters, it has long ceased being an option.

I looked closely at your images and even the smallest details counterfeit ones miss yours checks out. Every single detail is there as I can see. There is TONS of fake moncler out there. There getting good at making them. There even faking lampo zips now. Easy way to tell real ones is the plastic keeper at the bottom. It has a long plastic piece with holes in it. When it's closed it forms a hook at the end. Moncler made a mistake when they switched to there own system and dumped certilogo. They have no way to distinguish in there system if the sticker hasn't been copied a thousand times over. It only recognizes the number and model. The counterfeit ones still have never mastered the embroidered logo its so easy to tell instantly because it's been so consistent and has been for years till the recent change. Being just a small embroidered logo you would think they could copy it easy but moncler must have some way of doing it they keep secret.

Thanks for the input. I think its real as well plus it was cheap enough so i will just hold on to it if it turns out fake.

Dolcepunta tie


Trafalgar Ltd Ed braces


Collared Greens for a friend


Nicest Incotex I've ever picked up. 38.


BB slim fit MiUSA OCBD x 2. 16.5 x 34.


Nordstrom house label linen SC for Dad. Fully canvassed. Quarter lined. Dual vent.


Ferragamo and Zegna ties on a Hermes pocket square. Watched that damn square drop in price for over a month.


This thing rivals the Canali Kei and Eidos I have. Totally unstructured. Nothing in the shoulder.




Only the second time picking up JAB. Vintage MiUSA polo coat. Fully canvassed. Approximately 42R. Missing a button and the lining at the armpits needs attention, but otherwise in excellent shape.

Thanks for the heads up on the STP discount Mike. Had this beauty in my wishlist and the 30% made it a no brainer. I owe you an IPA!

No idea if these are worth anything, but they were all like three dollars so I figured I should just go for it.

Only one pick up today, some awesome Adidas Superstars/Shell Toes in redonculous white tumbled leather and gum soles/toe. UK8... Half a size bigger and they'd be a keeper. Barely worn it looks like.

And found a little Louis dust bag which the store assistant let me have.

The sick as fuck 90s jacket... I can't find any info on it anywhere! Is it Silvy or St Ives? It's grubby, but can be cleaned I'm sure of it. It's freaking awesome, I'll go back and get it tomorrow morning if it's something.

Is this anything special, Lo Lovers? There is a smaller size of the same blazer on that other site listed for over a couple bills, but it's the only other one I can find.


Also, is this a store prop or something? Pop for me, but not the item from them I'm wanting. my first watch thrifted of theirs was a replica. Seems strange to have taken the time to label it as not for sale, haha. Same story as above, similar item on other site listed as new for around $80 but no info or explanation of history behind the piece. This one fits me so most likely keeping it.

Nothing amazing but some finds from the last two weeks. 

 

Usually dont pick up COS, but this silk/cotton thing was nice, cheap and my size. SI polo and OL denimshirt, both my size. 

Awesome Acne studios wool scarf with "spectacular sensation" woven all over it. OL sweatshirt ethrift that sadly didnt fit. 

Got this OL cloud jacket very cheap as a ethrift, navy tech nylon. Sadly not the season to wear it. 

 

Ethrift, very cheap, very strange. zippers leg endings etc. 

Some Riedel glasses. Kinda bummed when I found out that JR equals Riedel, Ive left plenty.. 

Cp company knit, ladies but unisex model and my size soooo..

Perfect! I was hoping someone else was into the Filson/Shinola watches. I'd been looking at the Shinola ones at The Rack for a while, but they never went on sale.
