Obviously any fakes will have to go up on ebay as a "Hermes inspired" tie.

Went out today and got a Zegna shirt, 4 YSL ties, Gucci tie, a Charvet tie, and a knit tie that says Westchester Classics on it. Spent less than $20 total, pretty good day.

Nice. I'm curious how the Zegna fits. I've yet to buy or find one bearing any relation to what's printed on the tag.

Also, I copped a 'Lacoste-inspired' shirt this week. Had to. It's still pretty cool...

The Zegna fits me pretty well, a tad baggy, could be a little more slim-fit, but its definitely wearable. If it winds up not working out, I'm sure I'll have no problem getting rid of it.

Interesting day today... not much find-wise but it was entertaining.

Saw a Sherwin Williams shirt, black long-sleeves - it had been dipped in red paint. Guessing it was some sort of an internal employee inspiration thing - literally the bottom half of the shirt was coated in paint. Should have taken a picture, but I just laughed and moved on. I like seeing crazy stuff like that - I think I posted awhile back where someone had tie-died a Brooks Brothers shirt I otherwise might have picked up.

Almost picked this up just for the sheer novelty - but the only Ebay listing I saw didn't sell, and it was about 3.5-3.75 wide so I didn't see myself wearing it, and at the $5 asking price... eh. If anyone particularly likes AE, I'll proxy it, but I really didn't think it was worth the risk to pick up.


The two pickups for the day: Bill's Khakis seersucker pants, tagged 38. Confident these are NWOT - inspection paper is still in the pocket and has never been washed, and the basting from the tag is still there. Finally, a T&A shirt in a really interesting pattern. It's about a 15.75/34. Only downside is a monogram, which actually blends with the shirt pretty well so it's not a big deal. Add two inches to each dimension, please, thrifting karma!

Don't think they want to copy the names exactly...this way, it's not really a knock-off, just deception...which isn't too good, either.

Same, today I found about 7-8 Waffle House themed ties, hilarious but god awful at the same time.


I did snag a Brooks Brothers navy camel hair sc that fits perfectly, shame I won't be able to wear it for 6 months.

Yep, left 2 are fake.

This will get you zapped. You cannot use the designer name in the auction TITLE with anything alluding towards "inspired", etc. Dont do it.

Do you have a secret attachment to greasy-spoon diners that explains your recent filling out?

guilty as charged... in the box and everything.... 14.99 - but it was only some small small thing, not a whole box so I wasn't sure it was worth anything since it was just an addon or something. was still going to pick it up but I got rushed for time and forgot to pick it up. figured out later it would've flipped for 50+ bucks... doh!
