Good tips, I looked into it a bit more and I think the "Hermes Paris" being on the keeper confirms it as fake. They are from the same thrift along with a couple recent Zegna, Talbott BOC, Holland & Sherry and Canali ties :/

Looks real to me.

Yeah, they both look real. The tie on the right is a woven silk, so it has an Hermes-Paris keeper.

 

If you can post a picture of the backing, that should confirm it.

So it is normal for the woven ties to not have a model number and two letter code? What about the "tell-tale" thread loop? I defer to y'all's expertise worship.gif but I'd like to know in case hell freezes over and I run across one in a thrift.

Considering the nature of this piece, I'd call it an e-thrift

I read that they use to make their stuff in Canada in the same factory as W+H. Now they make their stuff  somewheres in China.

Linen/cotton Corneliani SC - from GMMcL BEST TRADE EVER!!!
Eton shirt

Ike Behar silk/linen tie
HB Baldessarini pants - from Nataku
Church's Custom Grade shoes


Yesterday



Linen Southwick SC - from GMMcL
Nautica Vintage BD shirt
No name cotton PS
Cashmere silk, some low-level label that but Made in Italy
Canali linen pants - dolfan, I think
FLorsheim v-cleats - GMMcL

I like the first look better than the 2nd one. The 2nd SC is too boxy. You kinda look like a JCPenney male fashion model. It could be that the shoulders are too padded. I also think it may be too short. And, I realize that shorter coats are in vogue now.

This may be just me, but I like to pair a rough looking fabric (linen) with something smoother on the 2nd half. Here, you have linen (rough) with linen (rough) in contrasting colors. Unless, of course, you have an all-linen suit. I guess that's why I like the 1st look: rough SC with smooth fabric pants. Carry on.

NATAKUUUUU


so I guess it's my turn to find some Daiki era WWM? Ok smile.gif

I won't be on here for a while (probably). Just started grad school and moving... So yeah, I think I'm going back to lurker status.

I found a button down about two years ago that was made in the US (I think by Gitman from the tag). Sold for something north of $130.
