Finally got some downtime so here's the photos I took yesterday of the Isaia Aquaspider and Zanella Platinum trousers. Please excuse the sideways photos - always does this when I post from my phone.









And a couple e-thrifts

Awww Yisssss. After not finding anything for ages I found some good stuff today. A separate post to follow once I get some photos done. For now can I get some verification help so I can return if need be? I was under the impression that this was the correct Balmain label, yes? (sorry for sideways pic, but you get the idea)



It seems a bit fishy to me. It's on a sport coat that's made in the USA. I thought that the vast majority was made in France/Italy and things like the jeans were made in Japan. If I recall correctly it was the diffusion line, Pierre Balmain, jackets that were made in USA. So is this just a label switch job or does this seem legit? FWIW it doesn't really seem all that well made. It feels like it's fused, although I can never really tell for sure. I haven't handled any Balmain before, but with the price I assume it would be fully canvassed no?
nope you need the black label, thats crap

I'm just worried about the physical science section. I'm fascinated by physics and chemistry but remembering hundreds of equations is overwhelming.
