With everything that shows up on this thread, I'm not really surprised that these were found. What amazes me is that someone put 14k gold buttons on an Alan Michaels blazer! Thanks a lot Spoo. Now I feel like I have to inspect every blazer for buttons.

Dude, since the day that I saw the Oxxford post, I started checking EVERYTHING. Every time I saw a gold. Finally paid off. I mean I had to have looked at over 3500 jacket buttons, easy.

edit - find of the year, 2012.

Solid gold buttons. On a DB no less! 4 fronts and 6 for the sleeves. All marked 14K. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hi, Mr. cashier, Ill take this, please. Oh, this is pretty heavy, is it a winter coat? Well, its a winter weight, sure. Great, winter coats are half off today!

Yes, thrift. Price was right... Sort of a light day otherwise, there seem to be a ton of people thrifting here.

Polo belt.

Tough call. Its not marked on the back? Can you bend the leather in the opposite direction that it would be worn (ie make it wrinkle) and post a pic?

Not marked if it's Alligator but there are numbers (google turned up nothing, really)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

Doesn't really wrinkle when bent, looks like. Tried bend it as much as possible.
