Wrong about the Lanvin.
Pretty sure both of the Gucci's are real, Paul Smith feels kinda cheesy so maybe.

As far as Lanvin, I thought this was the label I was looking for?

You bet. Expect to hear from me soon, I'm very happy with your services and have more things to send your way.

At what point does this thread get closed and a new one started?

I ask only in the hopes that when that does happen, the new thread will have a less obvious thread title and we can get back to brag worthy finds and the occasional digression about Ebay and the flippability of items and away from people posting the ugliest fucking shit that can be dredged up from any moth filled thrift store in the world.

Vlassis, I know you are new but fuckin' A man...those ties are objectively hideous and you should feel bad about having even considered posting them here. Even if they were made by angels spinning silk out of the hair of the purest virgin, they would be shit. Possessing those ties should be at least a misdemeanor and seeking to spread them into society should be a felony with a mandatory minimum sentence of five years.

Gucci just looks.. off. Recent Lanvin has blue lettering. Like this:

They're not very into normal ties right now, doing the bow tie instead.

Not especially bragworthy but hey, I was happy to find a pair of dark brown Florsheim longwings in my size at the little thrift store down the block from my office:

Not shell, not imperials, no V-cleat, but they're cleaning up nicely and fit well. (That's the "before" picture above.) And if all else fails, I can use 'em as weapons since they're as heavy as bricks.

My local GW is apparently raining Zanella pants: I picked three for myself. Others woulda worked if shortened, but that would defeat the point of getting pants at 1/69th of retail.

We had the same thing when I was a kid. I thought they were cute and we would play house together. uhoh.gif
