How expensive, assuming it should be possible, would it be to have non-prescription sunglass (tinted) lenses made for these? Cost prohibitive? I wasn't sure if the clip-on lenses would be the exact size that I'd need.

bounce2.gifThose glasses are killer! I would rock the sh*t out of those, although I actually need glasses. Not sure how you feel about the whole fake glasses craze. If you can make them into sunglasses they would be stellar.

 

Nice find!

I've had co-workers who have had to do this. We're in Covington and the test scores that came out rated the district as the worst in the state of Kentucky. We had our son in private school in NKY, but we switched him to private in Cincinnati for this school year.

Saw a coupla flippers today at GW. Had a cart overflowing with shoes as they cut a wide swath through the store. No one, including me (and I tried), could get within 30 feet of them because they had body odor the likes of which I never dreamed possible. Next stop was a Salvation Army, where I found a Bean Norwegian sweater, but they had obviously been there, too: The smell was still thick in the air, although they were nowhere in sight. Then I went to another GW, and I knew they were there as soon as I opened the door. It was beyond rank. I like to think that I have a pretty strong stomach, but there was just no way to cope with these guys. Other shoppers were moving away from them as they went through the aisles--they had an entire side of the store to themselves. I don't know if this is a new technique, but if you want to keep the competition at bay, don't bathe. Ever. That's what this smelled like. The cashier should've gotten combat pay. It was bad enough that I cut short my shopping trip and left, and I never, ever do that, no matter what.

Yeah. This particular label says it right on there. Some don't, but this is def. GFT era. Don't get me wrong; I have a GFT-era Val (one of my last holdovers from my GFT days) and I enjoy wearing it.

I think it is indeed a tactic used. I've talked about doing it (jokingly). It works. Very well, I might add.

Today I passed Evisu (ugly but selvedge) and Edwin jeans (small, not selvedge, huh) . I passed a cashmere Aquascutum overcoat, perfect fit but 40 bucks and not needed. Southwick suit, motheaten, an Isaia way old orphan, green tag. It's slim pickings overall, not worth the time at all. Somebody in the know must have been working my area.

I've found a well timed fart can have the same effect for at least a minute or so.

Fake, right?

Is this anything worth picking up? How does somewhat dated Boss do on Ebay?

Pretty sure the Hermes is fake.

 

Pass the dated Boss.

Hit the Church thrift store around the corner from my house that is only open two days a week.

Found these:
New. $15 for both pair. 9.5 narrow.
Available if they'll work for your significant other. Or you. No judgment.


Needs a tune up, but couldn't let it sit on the rack.
Spoken for.

The stitching on the Hermes tag looks way off, the tag itself looks iffy, and I've never seen a possibly unlined Hermes, with what looks like a handrolled tip.  In fact, if the tie was the right width and size, I might have picked it up anyway (unless it was priced as an Hermes tie) because there might be a decent tie hiding underneath that fake label.
