It's all good, bro. We rarely see any legit YSL posted on here. But I did sold a pair of YSL licensed crap to a French man. He didn't mind them...

The pants / jeans pile - 7 For All Mankind, Citizens Of Humanity, Lucky, Robert Graham, Orvis, and JD Workwear (with leather back pockets, hammer loop, and leather + padded knees):

 

Odd bird - Loro Piana Brooks Brothers "Brooksease".  I always thought the "Brooksease" was lower level stuff akin to 346, but Loro Piana...?  This is the coat for which I need sleeve buttons:

 

 

 

I don't know...I think that pile of jeans are pretty awesome...just saying...

 

Damn, that H&M jacket is the shits! I would rock that on Halloween or something.

 

Yeah, that Bookease is pretty lower tier but hey, it's Loro Piana. I would of picked it up. I think Wes has a few positive experiences selling Bookease on the bay. Hey, you never know.

Yeah this one GW store really gave it up on jeans - I put back 3 pairs of Lucky as I already had $70 of stuff in my cart and Lucky can be iffy (for flipping).

 

I totally wish that H&M jacket fit me - I think eazye is a 38?..and likes "loud" sport coats.  Knock knock - trade for some Waterbury BB buttons eazy?

 

Brooksease + Loro Piana really didn't make sense to me, but stranger things have happened.  Coat needs spot treatment + dry cleaning + buttons sewn on = little meat on that bone but it'll keep me out of trouble. 

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

I agree that they don't fit well enough to go strutting in public but they do close around my waist and will provide yard work jeans that I can wear longjohns beneath this fall, thereby saving my better fitting levis for nights out and such.

That was my point in getting them, I think. Raking leaves in $300 retail Eye-tal-yun jeans? Srsly? I might even wear the Ferragamo loafers as well! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Did you do good? You hit it out of the park! That thing is insane! What size is it? biggrin.gif

Awesome! Seems like just 20 years ago there were 10x as many smaller companies making this stuff, so it was hard to know.

Not sure on the size, the tag is unreadable (despite the great condition of the rest of the vest). I'm a fairly tall dude who usually wears 42L and it fits me snug. I don't know if they did standard sizing on their stuff or more specifics, but it's probably a Large (40-42 or so).

why did you just change your highly critical post to "nice finds" you are in no way obligated to go on this thread and you can't control what people post, everyone here is here to improve and learn, everyone has "shit posts" myself very much included, and if you had more than 11 posts you probably would do, can we only have positive criticisms here?

this is not meant to be racist but does anyone who is not mexican, ny italian, or middle eastern actually wear RG shirts? Even etro shirts are borderline.

The RG shirt club has been mentioned in passing before but here's a link to some hardcore members:
