Sheeps - $355 for a stained ratty old sweatshirt?  Who knew?!  Well, some of y'all did, but if I saw that for sale in a thrift I'd only glance at it and gripe about people who donate their garbage.

"Duxbak" has been added to my mental label catalog.

WOW.........

Wow, Loro Piana has a great customer service system. Contact them with the item's model number and they'll respond in a few hours with a full rundown including pictures.

Yes. That was the point.

Nice! I'm not an audiophile by any means but people have said good things about them, and they certainly are an upgrade from what I had. Fortunately I was just doing some research about them last week and came across them in a thrift store yesterday.
 

post #78536 of 138728

Is that really a fake?

 

I don't think the Borrelli we're looking for is trademarked--Luigi Borrelli and Borrelli Napoli are--so there are other companies that can use the Borrelli name.

Spoilers are your friend and mine

+1 to spoilers.

Also, PD, I am, and I'm sure I speak for all of us, very excited that you've discovered this hobby, this thread and these items. Each in their own way will prove incredibly worthy of your investment. The more you hang out here, though, I think you will find that the thread moves so fast and gets such a density of truly impressive items that only the real creme will garner you praise, and the rest should probably not be posted. For example, "no name" probably doesn't make the cut. Now, it may turn out that you've found G&GS. Some research on the label thread and the wider Internets should help. But until then, I'd advise discretion. Same goes for diffusion labels like "Hugo" for Boss ( what you have is mainline, BTW -- still not bragworthy, IMHO; we all pass daily), BEN Sherman, Pride of England and other labels that are pretty common at stores. (We all pick that stuff up for personal use but don't necessarily brag about it). Don't sweat -- this is a learning process, and many of our most illustrious members have done exactly the same thing first time out. DM7 is a great example. Early posts were Dior ties (an inside joke here). Now he hauls NWT Kiton.
So keep finding and keep post in. But most of all, keep reading and learning. fing02[1].gif
