post #19531 of 114990
Checked out the local GW today:

RLPL DB in a 44L. Pants were nowhere to be found unfortunately.
467
467

Brooks Brothers 346 Camel Hair in a 46R.
467
467

Zegna Jacket with no pants either. Approximately the same size as the RLPL.
467
467

Brooks Brothers Jacket, Made in Italy 46R
467
279
and a Haspel seersucker suit in about a 42-44R that I didn't snap a picture of.

Although I'm still fairly new to flipping stuff, I'm assuming most of this is would sit due to no pants? Didn't actually buy any of the stuff, wanted to get some opinions first. If someone's interested in the BB jacket, I could check and see about it tomorrow.

Passed on a couple of RLPL shirts because they were $24 a piece and corduroy. Also passed on a Missoni SC and a couple of Golden Fleece suits due to price. Do you sometimes just buy things because of the label, regardless of the look?



Gold Fleece might be good pickup if recent.  For personal use I'd say $50-$80  or below, for flipping purposes I'd say 30 or below.

Sorry for the gratuitous bump. But can anyone help? Bueller?

This thing is pretty big. I measured it at 33"x33".

Contact Spoo, he knows Versace better than anyone here.

I would vouch it is at least based on something real by Versace, I have seen that pattern before in the 90's. The only thing is that label is not consistent with that period.

Chances are it is real, although something about the quality of the seams makes me think it is fakeroo. Im 60/40 in a real vote. If you thrifted it though, I dont see the big deal unless you are hoping for some $$$

Has signs of being real to my untrained eye. That Versace tag is pretty recent and it has hand rolled edges. I'm no expert, though. As Klobber said, Spoo would know best.

$75 a piece for what I believe was a couple of 42L s. They were to large for me and I wear a 38. They were extremely nice though, but they would not be for personal use.

Will do. Thanks!

Dude, tell me that unusually subdued and size 50-ish Etro isn't excessively long.

You tell me now!

Its real. Circa 2006-2008. Should be closer to 35 or 36 inches though. You should be able to get about $75 or so on eBay. Check out my current Versace silk scarves in my link in my sig and try and duplicate the text and photos, list it around Thursday 6:45pm EST to piggyback my Versace followers. smile.gif Try "Versace Atelier Couture Yellow Gold Greek Key Silk Shawl Scarf" or something. Best of luck.

You're a good man, Spoo. Thanks a ton!

I found a baby blue "Net Jets" Loro Piana tie. Nicely structured and of course the fabric itself is very nice. I've done some searching. Unless I'm looking in the wrong place, I can't seem to find too many Loro Piana ties. What are the chances that -- Warren Buffet endorsement aside -- I found something of actual value? Appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Those are 100% cashmere, and usually sell on eBay for about a hundred bucks, sometimes more with the box.

Sorry, buddy, but I think there is a North Carolina General Statute which requires that.
