Looks real to me. I mean Versace Jeans Couture isn't really that quality. I can see why folks think it's poorly made and maybe fake. V2 is even worse. Their Signature line is better made. I sold a few pairs of jeans from the former and latter lines. They did OK at best on Ebay.

First two that I found a while ago and never got around to posting.

Everyone loves LB! I'd love it more if it fit me though :/ 



Casual shirt, but fits about 15.5 33-34


A really quirky shirt, but in a good way. EXTREMELY well made. One of the buttons on the cuff is missing, but there are extra buttons still there- I'm just not confident in my ability to sew without butchering it :P Two buttons up top.

''


Now the two from today...

First the pretty cool. JV USA. Had a pair of brass Thrywitt collar stays in it too smile.gif




16.5 long (US 37)


And the big one... I popped my Cucinelli cherry!




Size IT 52 (US 42)


All are available. I would really like to trade for cool shirts that actually fit me, as it gets kind of discouraging to find all this awesome stuff and have it all be a complete tent if I try to wear it ::/ 



Trying to get stuff that I can wear ties with. Steering clear of solid colors for now.

First Hermes sighting... and they weren't ties. Both fit, but will probably flip to fill some bigger needs in my closet/ Pay for all those boxes that keep showing up.

These cuff buttons are sweet.


Awesome light jackets. Bad lighting... It's fairly powder blue.



Found the Banana Republic I was looking for... Keeping. You know it's old when it says "Made in the British Colony of Hong Kong"



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Safari jacket. Pretty stoked as it fits me perfectly. 



Last store I went to today had a lot of very tempting stuff. But they knew their brands for the most part and marked the prices up. 

Jacket fits me well and was pretty much immaculate, but I'll need to have the pants lengthened. Cost me $40. 



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hanger I used for the pictures make it look bad.



Either pretty recent or just in great shape HF suit. All around a little too big for me and not worth getting tailored. Available. Really like the windowpane on this one.



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Ties. Passed on a bunch at the last store with the marked up prices. 




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Prada pants. Available.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Found this cool 1950's Sherlock Holmes book.





Picked up a few other pieces for myself that aren't too exciting as well as a Ralph Lauren black label black dress shirt, which I just saw had the top MOP button break in half after purchase. The buttons were all pretty beat up however. Probably should have left.

Whatever your views may be on the recent tragedy from the prank call to the hospital where Kate was staying, this might be amusing. The language has been bleeped out. This link is for amusement purposes only.

This is the first time I've seen the "heritage line" at a thrift and it was super cheap so I thought I'd give it a shot. I know there was some discussion about people selling their BR stuff easier than Oxxford, so we'll see how this goes. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




I also wanted to give a huge shout out to Cotton Dockers, he must really be feeling the Christmas spirit this year. We were working out a trade this summer for some baller John Varvatos Italian made linen trousers that fizzled out for whatever reason. Well, I get home from work yesterday to find a package I wasn't expecting. I open it up, and inside is a letter form Mr. Dockers saying that he's not my secret Santa but that the trousers were just sitting around his house and he thought he would just send them my way so someone could get some use out of them.
Blew my mind! Your sir are a gentleman and a scholar! Things like this really give me faith in the human race and confirms my suspicions that there are still some really, really good people out there. And furthermore, there seems to be an inordinate amount populating this thread. You guys are awesome!!!!! Happy holidays!!!! cheers.gif And one more shout out to Wes for another solid trade. My wife has taken to calling you my "tweed guy". Like, you need some tweed? Yea, I gotta guy. biggrin.gif[

Eazy, I believe nailhead is a square pattern, whereas bird's eye is round. To my eye, that is a round pattern.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong on this. I think this was just mentioned in the WAYWRN thread.

Three weeks of no thrifting and counting. Exam time is driving me nuts with withdrawal. Glad you guys are pulling in awesome stuff. A week from now... release the Kraken kraken-smilies-0001.gif:pirate:

The Levis store in the Mall Of America has actually have a bunch of LVC and Made & Crafted stuff in the clearance section for the last year or so. I don't think they've gotten anything new because it's finally shrunk down pretty small now.

If the price is good I can use an LVC 501 36/32, 36/30, 38/32, 38/30. Pls proxy.

I would like to thank a wave of recent new members that are doing their homework and doing diligent thrifting. Welcome to the community. p.s. I will be watching your transformation to flippers biggrin.gif
