The one on the left could be legit but the one on the right is most likely a stripper's tit. The box on the tail of the tie (shown in your pics) as well as the other box with the model number and two letter factory code, should be composed of the exact same colors (or a subset thereof) found on the rest of the tie. The box color on that tie on the right looks off, the proportions look off, and the missing model/factory box is a huge red flag. Have you looked inside the back of the blade for the thread loop?

nah both look real from here

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.

Today





Linen/cotton Corneliani SC - from GMMcL BEST TRADE EVER!!!
Eton shirt
No name silk PS
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.
