I'm curious how much everyone pays on average for specific items.

 

TLDR: How much do you guys usually pay for sport coats?

 

As somebody who recently moved from Oregon, Portland has some crazy high prices at some locations. Not uncommon to see suits marked $50 and up, and at a certain location downtown $100+ ain't nothin' but a thing. Of course there is a still a lot to be had a "regular" thrift prices. Cucinelli and Isaia will fly under the radar while Zegna will be sky high. It all depends.

Do it! You have 11 more days to decided but once they are gone they might not make a come back until at a later time. I was waiting for the Super Heavy Slubs to make a return but decided to jump on these for now...I think these will be my last pair of Gustin. These will be my 3rd pair. I'm super stoked on the Rainbow Nep, too! I'm gonna step up my game and get a pair of Iron Heart, 21 oz or get that 28 oz. Studio D!!! Oh man, it's gonna suck to break those in!

Not for me. My epic dry spell continues. I've clearly offended some god or other. Human sacrifice is now possibly virgin sacrifice.

Heres what I have actually found. Massively overpaid at a "thrift" in the richest town on the area. Only the tux shirt is available for now:

RLPL tux shirt. 15.5, available.

Spoo what are the black spots in the shoe u have first? Why does that happen? I have a pair like that too.

^My first guess would be iron stains from moisture.  It looks like most of them line up with nail heads.

Another installment of "Real of Not Real"

 

Ok guys. It would be hard to find someone with less background on authenticating brands, so I'm coming to you with this Burberry purse my daughter picked up. 

 

I looked at it and saw it was made in China, and I assumed fake. Then I see online that since early 2007, most of their mainline hand bags were outsourced to china for production. 

 

Thought I'd try to get a read from you on it. 

 

 

What say ye?

post #83144 of 102566
These things often need close examination. One general rule is that if it doesn't feel like luxury, its not luxury. Hardware should be heavy, no discoloration etc. Does it have burberry tags inside?
