Same as most other items; kiton, hermes, oxxford, etc.
Anyone know vintage Red Wings and can give me an ID? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Don't forget Barba
PS - This is a good question, but wrong place to be asking it and expect a back and forth discussion within the thread

Wasnt going to.... but couldn't help myself and went out to the only store within a half hour drive which was a Savers. 50% off the old color and 25% off everything else in the store.... Wasnt that busy really. Didnt get there till around noon though.
SORRY IN ADVANCE SPOO
Not too bad a start. Usually dont flip through the short sleeve stuff but after the below stuff was found (and this was the only store I was going to) figured I should spend the 2 minutes and do it. Came away with these two. Not 100% convinced the 1st one is real
Couple pair of pants.The first pair is very well made, lots of the same details as Incotex and tag looks similar, but made in Italy???
A few long sleeve shirts
And at two prob orphan jackets but wasnt leaving them.
Can't complain today - 3 oxxfords and the Brioni, although the oxxford suit is a bit dated. The last HF is a tweed, and the pants are Canali. I haven't sized anything yet except the Brioni which I will probably end up keeping, and I might keep a couple ties, and a couple of the SCs in addition to the Brioni.
Brian and suited, great hauls! I'm glad you guys were able to pick up such great finds during what appears to be a crazy time period!
Re that Prada, I don't have the best eye, but it looks like most of the Prada I've picked up that has the red rubber tag on the front. I don't know whether it helps, but if I suspect a fake, I check the stitching pattern on small tags, such as the size tag. It's fairly easy to do those pretty crooked and most of the legit items I've had in my possession do a pretty good job of lining up a stack of tags, even the smallest top tags. Not a very scientific approach, but it helps me make a quick decision if I'm at a store.
Secret Santa Announcement Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Also, and this is important, please let me know via PM when you receive your secret santa gift. Some have messaged me and I really appreciate is as I'm keeping a list of who has received something. If, in the end, you haven't gotten anything, I can get in contact with your secret santa.
On the same note, if you can't get your gift out in time or you won't be able to find something, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! If it's due to a lack of time, I'm sure I can help out by contacting others that might have things lying around that they're willing to proxy. Worst case scenario, you can email a gift card to your secret santa for $20. If you are having trouble paying for gifts/shipping, again, let me know and I'm definitely willing to help you out! I know holidays can be stressful in both time and money management, so if there are any issues, I'm willing to help out in any way that I can!
I haven't been able to get out in awhile, so I'm living vicariously through you guys! I can only offer up a few pictures of the Christmas markets/decorations that have gone up in the city center. Spoiler contains nothing about thrifting, so feel free to ignore it!
