    The Yohji Yamamoto jacket looks real. Totally his style, cut, and color! Good find!
    Deadstock usually means they don't make this particular model anymore.
    Bad ass!!!!!!!!! What's the western jacket? More pics?

    It's a Zero King. Not exactly high end, but I liked the look and it's in perfect shape.

    Where I'm at shirts are $3.75, sport coats $8, suits $12.

    And I agree about ebay. Shopping yourself you can examine items before buying. With ebay not all are as discerning about what they pick up at thrift shops and resell as the majority of people on here are. Too many buy and try to resell every big name brand item they come across. And I'm especially leery of the ebay items listed as NWOT, especially when it's on a mannequin. You know it's likely a thrifted item so if they aren't the original buyer then how do they know it's new if it doesn't have tags? I've come across items that I could swear are new and never worn, but if they don't have tags then I can't listed it as such.

    Anyway, buying on ebay you just need to look for reputable sellers. Obviously shopping in person you can look over the items yourself but of course, won't have the same selection available to you unless you live in or near a large city. Just have to be patient.

    No pick stitching but working cuffs and a ticket pocket. Sick blue velvet in a small. Deciding if the alterations needed are worth keeping it. Brand? 7FAMK.

    Vintage XL so fits like a slim L. Had a lot of interest on this one and has been sold.
    Nice find on the Jean Shop! A local discount store has a bunch of raw selvedge Jean Shop jeans for $20. Kicker: they're women's. :fu: Tried to get a pair for my wife but she said "If they're those stupid stiff-as-a-board jeans that you like, I don't want them". :plain:
    Cool, thanks! I really like it and it fits but I don't really need a plain gray blazer.
    Thanks man! It's definitely a keeper - one of my new favorites. Wish it would cool down so I could wear it, but the cool weather will find us here in Minnesota soon enough.
    :lol:
    Welcome aboard! Score on the SC jeans! Paid up retail (well, Japanese retail which is slightly cheaper than here) for mine in Tokyo last fall. Love em!
    :wow: That is insane! Wow!
    :lurk:
    This screams knock-off to me.

    Did a little bit of DIY in my room... Thrift related because all of the ties are either thrifted myself or from people on here
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Took two vintage wood wall hanging paper towel rolls used them as tie hangers and I don't think it looks too shabby...
    More to come on my thrifty redecorating later...

    +1 You should probably set fire to it to make sure it is authentic. :p

    Re: the Russound, the tag was dated 7/13...so it sat for a week, patiently waiting for me - crazy find at a GW.

    I thought the same re: the PRL microfiber coat - weird label with diagonal stitching I'd never seen on a blue label before. On the other hand, the pony was detailed and dimensional (fakes I have seen are very sloppy and flat), same colored thread to attach the label (fakes I've seen often have off-color thread or monofilament [like fishing line]). But secondary sizing label is odd. Either a very good fake, or real. Dunno.... no problem tossing if fake.

    Could definitely have been worse - fake Polo ain't gonna bring me down!

    That particular Russound ... anywhere from $400 to $600 +/- (the one I grabbed closer to the middle since it doesn't have the intermediary speaker connections). If it had all the keypad controllers and whatnot, upwards of $800 to $1k. Newer models, even more. And nobody is making fake Russound's...
