I might have made a mistake in buying this thing. If it's a flop though, I'm not out much. It's a nice piece but needs work. One button is loose (button and backing button are intact) and the seam sealer is showing through, as I've seen a lot with outdoor/backpacking garments of this age as well. Not sure if there's a fix or to call it "patina".

Yeah, I don't get it. Ties for some reason are not now. Last year I couldn't get over $20 for a recent Zegna or Talbott BOC. Just sold a BOC for $60+ and recent Zegnas for $30-$50. Crazy!
