Heads up to NOVA peeps - Marshalls in Manassas is negatory on anything other than the usual Nautica and Donald Trump ties.  confused.gif

not the best pic but I got a pair of these Mercanti Fiorentini dress/sport shoes yesterday at DSW while looking for a pair of sneaks for my brother.

84

the manager gave me an extra 80% off of 70% off... total was $8.31! I laughed that the receipt said at the bottom "you saved $242.20"... haha.. for a pair of beaters I think they'll be great as they are actually very comfortable.

Quick authentication Q for anyone in the know: Is authentic Lacoste stuff ever made in Indonesia?  I can't seem to get an exact straight answer from the web.  The serial numbers match, but I know those are even faked with decent fakes.  I know it's an annoyingly common item, but Lacoste stuff is faked so much I'm always second guessing with it.  Pics below:

Came across a "Briani" tie today. I had a moment of excitement, then realized something was not right.

All of the stuff that I own says Designed in France Made in Peru and the older stuff I have is Made in the Dominican Republic. However, I know that a lot of the button downs are Made in Hong Kong so I do not think it would be completely out of the realm to have something Made in Indonesia. I am not expert but I am pretty sure this is real.

Thanks for your thoughts!  Yeah, for Polos I know they're almost always made in Peru, but I can't find anything for sweaters/zip-ups.  The build quality and tags all seem to match up, but you can never be too sure.  I'll wait a bit on listing it to see if anyone else can confirm, since it's not really my style.  Thanks again :-D

Three recent Samuelsohn MTM suits in excellent condition at the thrift today: navy flannel with blue windowpane, navy birdseye and a green flannel that was a lot nicer color than it sounds like it would be. All about two sizes too small for me. ffffuuuu.gif Probably in the 42 range but not labeled. Any market for these out there? I sold a couple on B&S last year this time for $300 for the two, but wondering if I could get those kind of prices these days.

Was having an off day today, I think the rain had something to do with it. On my final stop I was flipping through $12 Lewin shirts, $125 PRL SC's, and $335 dollar Burberrys jackets when I came across this...

It feels like tweed, it has split vents, and is in pretty good condition. The only problem is the lining on one of the vents is coming up a little. Looks like an easy thread job.

Unstructured 3/2 cotton sack, tattersall, from a defunct haberdasher that was once the nicest men's shop in the town where I'm vacationing. A sartorial souvenir.

What do you guys know about Astor & Black? I picked up 3 shirt from them that seemed very nice and a couple of their ties that seemed nice as well.

 

Also picked up 3 Luciano Barbera casual shirts, 2 linen and one cotton all XL or XLT. Got another Etro shirt, a Faconnable shirt, and a NWT Pendleton cotton plaid shirt.

I'd be interested in pics and measurements at least... the navy sounds nice
