Are any of those labels any good?

Some pulls can be fixed. Paisley's not usually my gig, but I do like Bizzocchi. PM coming. And dibs, dudes.

I did as well last year, however, it was before I really knew what was what, so I'll refrain from sharing the link. shog[1].gif

On another note, the wife is out of town, I'm having some beers and listening to Coltrain while I take some photos of my Etro jacket I just picked up from the tailors. devil.gif

I've never seen that label before, so I'd say either uber recent or fake.  This is the most recent iteration I've seen:

1) Start picking up those Z Zegnas to flip

2) Mine isn't 100% on thrifting, men's clothing in general. I'd love to see the link to yours!

3) Different continent, same activity at the same time...cheers.gif

4) I've been waiting to see that Etro.

Nice first catch - Pretty rare find. Welcome to the coven.

No pics of the lady trying on pants outside of the dressing room, sorry.

Nice kicks! Thanks for the non-pic, you can see a lot of that type of stuff at "peopleofwalmart.com"

I believe that Dino Baldini is a mens store in New York (Madison Avenue maybe). Could be a house brand - check of manufacturer labels. Welcome - nice first post.

Pretty sure they are both store samples. Look & feel NWTO (you can just tell after seeing 1000's of jackets new and used), front pockets basted, basting thread on rear vents evident (not shut though), evidence of glued on tag that prob read "sample" which was removed but glue is evident. To list or not to list NWOT....that is the question stirpot.gif

Hand warmer pockets. Do they measure about a size 40? Most samples are made in that size. If the basting thread is still there I wouls assume that they were unworn - NWOT.

I'll be honest with you, for as much time as I've spent on the internet (since 1996!), I don't get a lot of today's things and am intimidated by them...tumblr being one of them. First question is, can you write as much as you want on tumblr?

I just posted a lengthy entry yesterday that admittedly lacked real information (what blog doesn't), so is something like that allowed?

It's real and not a vintage label.  Not sure if it came before the one posted by androfan or after, so I can't help you on the age.
