    Yeah, the box twills are sick to me. These are still crispy, too ^_^

    I don't see a made in tag on the BAPE. The only inside tag I see says "by A BATHING APE NOWHERE CO LTD" with "100% cotton" on the back

    Jimmy Choo is a good find any day! Awww That a yellow lab? My mechanic just adopted a 3 year old female pitbull. She's such an angel! I want one! Been wanting one that's chill for awhile now.

    Good times. Check out the vid Pat did with AVGN on the cartridge. That's good shit, too.

    Sorry, nope!

    After some online research I'm leaning towards fake since there's no Made In tag inside. Oh well, it's thrifting for a reason! I couldn't just leave it sitting there :p

    well, if it is a fake. ( you should be able to tell by the stitching and embroidery,fakes are common but not any visible quality). you got a chance to try the cleaning method........

    Unfortunately they're not the Jimmy Choo ones, which I noticed on eBay when researching them. Should still do just fine though. And yeah, she's a 13 wk yellow lab. Pissed on my rug right after that picture but she is cute so I forgive her...

    Edit: Wk. not mo.
