Hey all, I have recently found out those Louis Vuitton shoes in my listing are fake.
Ed gave me the heads up in a previous post and a quick comparison with a pair of authentic LV shoes I had revealed that the serial number was false (LV shoes should have serial number on side or under tongue and read FA xxxx with the xxxx a 4 digit number. My consigned shoes have a 4 digit number but no FA).

Pretend they do not exist in that listing.
150 fucking bucks down the drain. I aint driving to give them back to the store - besides the guy that owned it was a dick, there is a strong likelihood I may just punch him.

I thought I saw on here over the summer someone said to list them on Craigslist and note that they are replica's?????

I had a terrific day today. Recent Canali suit, St Andrews suit (tiny hole in pants, but still worth picking up), about 12 recent ties (Zegna, Paul Stuart, Armani), couple Robert Graham shirts, recent pair of Zegna wool slacks, 2 pair of AE shell cordovan shoes and the pièce de résistance... Polo Ralph Lauren hand knit 9/11 commemorative sweater. Looks like it should go for around $400 on Ebay. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Not too bad of a day.  Got my first ever Canali tie!!  And it's a pretty nice design, at that

Would love some help on this one..."Forga" with what appears to be a French address.  Nice design, skinny, and feels like decent fabric, but I can't find a damn thing about them online.  I'm guessing it's some small unknown boutique shop or something, so oh well...it's a nice tie and I'll definitely wear it.  Anyone have any idea?

Also got a BB Makers "All Supima" (also my first Supima find) that's in mint condition.  I'd normally pass over a BB Makers, but Supima seems to be relatively well desired.

A nice PRL sweater that I would normally pass over, but fits me like a glove and is in terrific condition:

Finally, another item I'd normally pass over but fit me like an absolute glove and fills a gap in my closet - A nice Southwick tweed jacket.  I actually like the consistency/feel of this one better than the Harris Tweed stuff I've seen.

Also, passed on an Irish made "Donegal handwoven 'Magee'" tweed jacket.  They seem to do pretty well on the bay (http://www.ebay.com/csc/i.html?_nkw=donegal+handwoven+tweed+jacket&_sacat=0&LH_Complete=1&_odkw=donegal+handwoven+tweed&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313) considering it was $7, but it had 2 small moth holes near the 2 vents in the back, so I passed.

This is great. Southwick has an excellent reputation among the trad people over at Ask Andy. The guy who runs An Affordable Wardrobe is big on them, too.

You wont find anything, its a damn nice tie though. Looks like great quality from what I can see.

I come across a ton of ties from Italy with all these strange maker names that you'll never see. Rarer to see French ties of this sort but I do see them. Dont let the lack of a known maker dissuade you, quality is quality.

V2 DB suit:

V2 shirt:

I love that fucking SpooSignal. lol8[1].gif

The suit is ancient, maybe 91 or so. You should be able to get $100 with a pinned mannequin shot and a nice tie... maybe $125. The pics need to rule though. The shirt, as Nat noted, is probably Fugazi.

Would not work. Tried. Nobody gives a shit and Paypal does not accept digital evidence.

Nope, gotta be craigslist or something. You will get crucified if you sell a known fake on eBay (and they catch it or someone reports you).

Precisely.

I found this a couple weeks ago I finally got around to taking pictures. It's the first "vintage" sport coat I've bothered picking up because it was in such good condition. Looks to be about a 40-42 Short based on the measurements.

Unfortunately it's Andover and not Andover Shop.

Anyone know if Quoddy shoes are labelled? Picked up a pair that I'm 98% sure they probably are, but they have no label or markings.

Used clothes are virtually worthless which is why they were thrown in the goodwill bin in the first place.
