Good for you. Depends on where they are made. I go for the ones made in France or HK and has MOPs and my size. I pretty much leave all other behind.

In fact, here's what the underarm of my thrifted Attolini jacket looks like. I have no idea what the damage was or what they were trying to do when they "fixed" it, but you can see for yourself how well that turned out. It's not very visible when worn, given the location, so I still wear it sometimes.

I'm not sure if anyone would go to that detail level to fake MMM. I know the hm collaboration (atleast certain pieces) were made in china. The label won't have pick stitching on the front but four stitches in the back of the label that end in four small knots on the back of the garment. My guess is its real. Amazing find
