    Openig...Yeah...There's no way they would misspell their brand. Also, the jeans look like shit. I vote fake.
    Speedo has done colabs with CDG but 4 ways colabs? Red flag, bro. Damn, the jeans look like shit, too. Pass.

    Yerrrr...Taiwanese website with 26888go.com? Yerrr...No, sorry...I would stay away from those.

    Also, that pair on eBay, look at that Levi's red tag...That's the wrong width. Wayyyyyyyyyy fake.

    Top one yours. Bottom one stock. See the difference in the fonts and spacing? Also, why would the back pocket have selvedge details while the rest of the pants not?

    I'm sorry bro, I vote fake...

    [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, on this tag which was from your Fenom says "Cow Leather." Are there any leather details on the pants? I don't think so. Fake.

    Surest sign ever of a fake... A few inches of selvedge denim is far cheaper than 2+ yards of fabric.

    Finally, my Cutrate tiger stripe camo hat came in. The best part is that it came with their catalog!!!

    Oh also, do any of you guys ever pick up coffee table books/picture books? I found these 4 yesterday for 10 cents each so I didn't even think twice. Not really to sell, more because I think they're pretty friggin cool.

    From this book, it's huge and I'm probably going to keep it forever. It's got just about every single vintage, luxury sports car ever made in it! The list price on the dust jacket was $110!!!!

    Super cool book! It's got every official Tartan pattern in it along with the clan it belongs to and a short paragraph or two about the clan. Surprising how many there are (and that are still active!)

    ^I came across a book of Frank Frazetta's art a while back and didn't think twice about buying it. His paintings were seriously cool.

    I buy picture books alla time - photo, rugs, antiques, cars, design, art deco / nouveau, architecture, etc. That clan tartan book would be cool.

    Awesome find. LP Lido w/ cashmere blend = $$
    Still looking for one in my size.

    Side Note: I recently came into hands with a Robert Talbott Shirt that I was surprised to find a Camp Collar on as well!

    I knew LP, LB, & Paul Stuart made them, but Talbott now?
