Holy shitballs. I take four days of the thrift thread, and this happens! (Together with 500 new posts ffffuuuu.gif )

Can someone just tell me the story of Spoo and The Big Cloak Leather Jacket? That would be awesome!

My first thrift shop pickup.  Can anyone tell me if these look genuine?  Also, does anyone know what the shiny pattern on the Brioni is?

Blue looks real, brown looks fake. Maybe that's one of those Brionis with real gold in it? Those spots aren't just stains? Need better pictures of the labels to know for sure. 

 

Edit: Nevermind. Forgot that label was real, just old.

The brown could be real, just harder to authenticate, since it's not made like the majority of Hermes ties.

I have seen Hermes ties with similar tags like the brown one too. Both look real to me.

That brown is just a "heavy silk" Shermés right?

All real, nice finds.

here's a weird one. Bizarre laced mid back vents, ticket pocket, throat latch, working cuffs. I don't know if it's real or not but for $12 it was worth it just for the oddity.

^ quite real, very nice.

Here are some closer ups of the ties I posted above.  I don't think the Brioni has stains, it seems to be a different fabric that produces a glossier finish..if that makes sense.  Thanks for the help so far!

thanks. I was going to pass at first because of the weird laces and I'm unfamiliar with Hermes other than ties. Upon doing some research the label looks right, just older.
