    Yeah, I didn't count any of the solid gold ones. Like the 8498. Solid 18k with platinum details and 24k gold tinted lenses.

    Just one thing today

    Z Zegna white linen jacket - 40L

    There are a few spots on it but it looks like they never even bothered taking it to the dry cleaners

    I imagine you would either have to be a super hot blonde or the guy on the left to pull those off..

    I've given up on one of my local places a bunch of times. Something always keeps me coming back!

    That's cuz your above your early to mid 20s tops (older and involvment and that's just crazy guys). It essentially means that getting shoes these days are fucking impossible because of how insane the shoe game is. The releases your waiting on are already almost entirely sold to dudes who have deals with the boutiques and they turn around and sell them for like x10 the retail. Otherwise, the "bots" are like middle eastern computer farm workers that you pay, and their job is to hacked into the networks of Nike or whomever your poison may be, to cut you to the front of the line, giving you the best shot and probably still not getting what you want.

    Oh 100% agreed and just for the record, due to me being not sure of the tone of your response. I never thought to or began to question the fact that silk was not a viable source fiber/Primary composition fiber/Sole composition, in regards to producing Silk. I just merely had never heard of this and was immediately super interested and wantted a Pm because once, aware, ownership became necessary.
    Or rich, doctor, mid '80s, red drop top 911 Targa, and half of Columbia sharing the Seat belt with a female friend less than half your age....

    Or you can always just opt to make sure that latter issue is never confronted in the first place..... fake books,made up courses, and zero enrollment isn't gonna pay for itself.... not exactly in line with the original point, but always a good life lesson to pass a long nonetheless...

    1. It's Velvet regardless. If your curious as to it's true composition, well that would be a little more complicated, probably not be easily found out. Earlier RLBL, with the Caruso tag still attach, obviously states composition of 100% Cotton, so mystery solved. These suits also are more or less just mediocre Caruso work, they are nothing special at all, thus the fabric being basic falls in line and makes perfect sense. Now after Ralph was somehow able to get those manufacturers to contractually agree to no longer place their manucfacturering tags inside the garments, the RLBL production also happened to get much much better, far greater quality. I dunno if your tags are cut or you know which you have, but if newer it could more likely be a cotton cash mix....maybe? I couldn't tell you for sure, probably never will. But that's what I can tell you.

    Judging by the angle of the twill, I'd say real.

    He's referencing the thread loop that's usually under the blade folds but it could be on the other end as well. Either way, real in my opinion.

    Bah. I left it. Someone here told me all real Hermes ties have a thread loop on the inside and top that you pull to tighten the stitching or something.

    Or I'm completely mistaken?

    Twill angle and color on the inside of the tie just point to real for me. I've only found like 5-6 personally but I can usually spot a fake Hermes pretty easily.
