Dior knock off? I'm really confused by this - it has the Dior homme silver "Paris" hang tag and some other details, but fabrique in Italy + made in china = WTF

Thanks! I thought it might be, too.

Nice find. There have been a handful of others, including some cashmere knits from Nataku (I think) and a navy paisley I found. Mine was manufactured by Gitman. There's a video on YouTube of a tie making demo in the Gitman factory, and they're making an Oxxford tie.

Interesting....how would I tell.

Only the made in Italy Oxxford shirts are Kiton. Most of the rest are US made.

Found at vintage shops/websites for my wedding:
Perfectly fitted 1930's morning coat, in amazing condition, for $126 including shipping from SavvyRow.com
Vintage silk plush top hat, some wear to the underbrim, made in Toronto, fits almost perfectly, $150 including shipping in original case, from eBay.

Beautiful, seems like never worn (pockets still stitched shut) dinner suit, made in Austria, virgin wool and 25% mohair.  Sleeves need to be shortened, and going to have the jacket waisted, but a perfect fit in the chest and shoulders.  Found at a vintage clothing store in Vancouver, BC for $140.

Hit a store at lunch. Couldn't leave this on the shelf. I have no idea if it has any value, but it was just too cool.

Crappy pic, but vintage morning coat:




78 years old and in immaculate shape.
About a 36-38 and available.

Hello gents this is ejay415. Firstly my apologies to everyone who messaged me regarding trades and sales. I haven't been ignoring anyone's messages but since my last post in this thread, I've lost access to messages and the ability to post. I guess I was put under a sort of ban that only allows me to log in without any posting or messaging capabilities.  All my posts have only been in this thread. This happened after my last one here of a 15 robert graham shirt haul (had I known they'd be such detestable nauseating eyesores to warrant a ban, I wouldn't have ever posted them confused.gif )

I emailed support regarding the matter multiple times to no avail.

Anyhow, fantastic finds everyone. I have a few to share from the past couple weeks

Hit the store this afternoon and ran across a busted old J Press blazer with some Ben Silver buttons:

 

Ben Silver Cornell University buttons (Click to show)

 

There's some wear to them, but they still look good.  Will probably be the first thing I try to sell on ebay.

 

Strangely, it looks like Ben Silver doesn't make these for Cornell anymore.

Thanks, these were pretty slim to begin with, but I still had them taken in a smidge more.

A few years ago I ethrifted 400 of these from an archivist who worked for Miramax. They are the actual chips used on the set of the movie Rounders. I think that in the last few years Miramax has released the rest of the chips but at the time they were the only 400 outside of the studio.
 
The original seller had listed 200 of them in the poker chips section of e bay and was getting little action. I contacted him to make sure he wasn't sitting on thousands of the damn things and when I found out he had only 400 we struck a deal off ebay.
 
I placed a 200 chip set with a movie type collector in Texas for 12K and sold off the remaining $100 chips in two chip sets for $150 a set.
 
Or so I thought. Apparently I have one set left!

John Dahl, who directed Rounders, is actually down the hall from me right now. I'll have to see if he knows anything about how much those chips are worth.
