can find without cards. rolleyes.gif

Look at the front legs on the horse. When I posted 2 hermes ties a couple weeks ago I was told that authentic ties will show 2 front legs. Is there any truth to that?

I wont claim to be an expert on this, I can only talk from what I've seen. I think spoo might be able to clarify this. I have personally seen most tie labels with two front legs on the horse and some with one. I think made in France is found on the heavy silk ties not the type steven is showing. The made in france would be on the back of the skinny blade.  Also on the tie itself on the thin blade the horse has one leg on all of mine.

I think we should start a beginners thrift thread box that contains a real item and a fake item of some oft questioned items. someone can request the box to be sent to them for shipping and personal inspection. Requesting party pays for shipping. We should take a donation of a damaged, unsellable, yet authentic item and tie it with the fake. Would be a hands on learning tool for noobs.

I call not it on being in charge of this.

some ties i thought might be okay. either got them because they felt nice or the pattern looked okay, assuming they were from the same person. two of the ones not pictured are BB

The two Isaia jackets above were both grabbed after Brianpore gave me my prize for the 3rd scavenger hunt. The Isaia Coral lapel Pin. It was in my pocket when I found these. They were found in a store that was not on the Thrift Buddy app, I just happened to be driving by, killing time and looked up to see the Goodwill in the shopping center. The pin led me to them.

I've often thought it might be worthwhile to have a box of sample materials as well - good cashmere, super 140s or greater fabric, alpaca, vicuna, a piece of shell cordovan.  Something to help develop the tactile ability to sort out the crap without even checking for a label.  

 

Of course, if one has accumulated these items for himself already, the reference box would be unnecessary.

Toasty old Woolrich 60/40 down filled. Toggles, wooden buckles, spotless. How old is this label? 70's? We need a Nataku signal...
