Two more things:

 

Maker-Unknown canvas-and-leather bag. The trim is all high-quality calf--possibly glove leather--without any cardboard. Calf on the straps and ID case. But no maker. This was a retirement gift that the previous owner, according to a Google search, no longer needs.

And one for the UFO tags thread if someone wants to cross-post. Thrifts are so scared of underpricing Levi's that even these were $15.

STAX, IM LOOKING AT YOU AND YOUR J.A.B. (SOLID NAVY, SOLID GREY BIRDSEYE, GRAY PINSTRIPE, AND SOME OTHER SOLID, OLIVEISH I THINK) 3x Recent Oxxford, 1x Recent HF Bespoke. If someone tells me to post this in the buy/sell/trade thread, ill slap your face off. I paid a decent amount for them at a thrift, but im not looking to make much if someone can actually wear them, i mean how often can one procure a business wardrobe in one fell swoop?
PS Props to GMMCL, great guy. (I love finding shit from the homies on Ebay).

PMing.

It was a few bucks so I picked up just from pure intrigue.

It looks like a "herme spo". Obviously a fake....

I can't tell if that was sarcasm but it's Hermes Sport. If it was sarcasm it actually says Hermes Spoo.

It says

this
Hermes
should go to
Spoo

Is that a 48?

Nah it;s quite small. I wear a 38 and it doesn;t fit me. I think it's a 36 at largest. I also think it might be a womans. It's extremely tight on my shoulders.

http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?131212-The-sport-coat-or-orphan-thread

Solid gray coats, that are not of the camel or cashmere variety just scream orphan to me. Save for possibly just the lightest shade of gray. I have seen men out and about wearing that color as a sportcoat, but to me it just looks like they lost the pants. Having said that if you list it right you will probably get a few bidders on the Isaia part alone. Just don't expect to make a killing.

Here's a kinder, gentler answer to the question:

I agree that one can probably flip based on name alone, as The Captain has amply demonstrated, but that only proves that buyers can be naive.
