    Whats up guys

    Picked up this John varvatos Sportscoat and foudn with came with tags!
    then I noticed that tthe tags which are converse X varvatos didnt match the inner label which is john varvatos.
    also the only label inside was the john varvatos label I didnt find any extra labels like fabric or care.
    I think its real but what you guys think?

    keeps loading upside down, even though Its correct when I view it alone

    Shoutouts to size 38R for being an awesome human being! This has nothing to do with a trade with me. It has everything to do with him helping another human being in need. [​IMG]

    Here are the vintage EG Dovers I found yesterday ... after a quick clean-up, polish, and a night in trees. I was able to determine that they are 8.5 / 9 but can't read the width. But they look narrow.

    Wow - you've got some insane stuff as usual! That note is hilarious! Please explain this photo to me, though. From what it appears, it's a Kiton suit jacket that was thrown away and buried under a pile of garbage bags. If so, :fu:

    Today this thrift store that donates to a well-known charity had a rack setup with a bunch of E Zegna (and a few versace) shirts in sizes 18.5 and 19, all priced at $40. There was a sign that listed the retail price at $395. This place has basically turned into a consignment store via their pricing, unbeknownst to the employees. I asked if they would come down on the price if I bought a bunch, but she wouldn't go below $25 a piece for the six I wanted so I passed. The lady got all bent outta shape and started ranting to another employee "it's a $400 shirt whatever." I guess she thinks the only way one can buy a new Zegna shirt is by walking into a shopping mall and going to Neiman Marcus.

    I did manage to get a pair of AE and 2 T&A shirts.
