Which Arny brand are you looking for? I've seen "Arny's" ties in the past (always ugly so never kopped) but today I saw a huge # of "Arnies" ties (also nice quality, most had blade damage but I snagged one). Is either desirable? Both? Neither? Purely academic, I'm happy with the one I grabbed.post #79372 of 1387289/9/13 at 3:48pmHere's what I did end up getting after passing on the 2 gucci, Hermes, and that weird E. Zegna tie.
RT, PRL, Perry Ellis (I know, I liked the pattern), PRL, PRL.
Plus a pair of no name braces, a Burberry sport coat and a Hickey Freeman orphaned suitcoat that are both at my tailor getting the arms maxed out.post #79373 of 1387289/9/13 at 3:49pmQuote:arnysOriginally Posted by staxringold

Not sure why this thread has so much trouble ID'ing Hermes ties. The fakes are usually very obvious (no accent mark, price embroidered on the tie). Also, I've handled real Hermes ties where the thread loop isn't showing—I wouldn't let that detail be the deciding factor.
I think its real too. On the subject of IDing Hermes, I once bought an Hermes H belt on ebay with a guarantee that its authentic, which of course I didn't trust, so I brought it to the
Hermes store in Manhattan and the manager there told me that they never have id cards with their items so its fake. Now take a look on ebay and see how many you
can find without cards.post #79378 of 1387289/9/13 at 4:16pmQuote:Originally Posted by stevenkmason
Ended up passing on all 3. Gucci's weren't super wearable for $11 and I'm not real into flipping. I would have worn the Hermes, but everyone was saying fake. Shrug. Thanks everyone for their opinions.
Well everyone, I'm done lurking. Here to post and stay.
I'm Steven. I'm in Michigan. I thrift mostly for myself and a couple friends. Just don't have time and energy to flip. Plus, Michigan isn't exactly a hotbed of flippable designer goods.
I'm a giant, so finding clothes is always tough. When you see huge stuff and wonder, "Who the hell wears this?", it's me. I'm a 44/46 XL in suits. 38x36 in pants. 17x40/41 slim in shirts. I'm 6'8" and 265 pounds. Shoes are 15, 16 or 17.
If anyone ever comes across giant stuff, I'll take it! Almost always!
Welcome, its good to know there's someone here who can handle the really big stuff.post #79379 of 1387289/9/13 at 4:22pmpost #79380 of 1387289/9/13 at 4:30pm
