FOB was quicker, but yes, it's fake. Sorry!

No problem, I suspected as much. Worth it for a dollar to find out for sure though.

There are lots of sites that will tell you how to spot a fake Hermes but here's a page I like that that gives you a bit more about how they are actually produced and will give you an idea of some of the indicators of quality to look out for (which could apply to many other handmade silk flat things (i.e. scarfs from other companies, pocket squares).

Can anyone help me identify this belt? It was a bit pricier, but I could use it myself anyway so I picked it up.

And finally another question. I found some Levis Engineered Jeans today but they were super weird. Cuffed bottoms with a cinch on the back. But they were made in Japan selvedge denim. I wasn't sure if that was a good pick-up or not at 8-9 dollars, It was in great condition though.

Cinch Back and Selvedge for under $10 is an easy pickup in good condition. Just thrifted a pair of similar non-japan selvedge gap jeans

No pics, wondering if there's any meat left on the bone if I pay $300+tax for a pair of charcoal gray Berluti wingtip balmorals in excellent condition (sole shows very little wear, just some light scuffs that can be conditioned and buffed out), shoe trees included?  Common size.  They're currently being discounted, after tomorrow it goes back up to almost $500. Thanks guys!


Edit: I've never flipped something on Ebay before so I'm worried this is a risky bet after fees and shipping are included.  I've looked at recent sold listings on Ebay but the price range varies tremendously on these shoes depending on the particular model and condition.
