    I want to pick this up. Waste is too big, but it'll be worth the tailoring costs if real. What do you think? Thanks.

    Looks genuine, but old. Gucci ties (even very recent) don't command a lot of money used, so don't spend too much.
    Looks genuine, but Oxxford is a brand that isn't too expensive used. If tailoring is going to cost a lot, wait around for one that's a better fit.

    The tailoring would only be taking in the waist by 2".

    Real or Fake Thom Browne Shirt
    So I just purchased a TB shirt off ebay.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/151190115074?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    I am curious if it is real or fake because this is my first Thom shirt I own. All of my other thom stuff I have ordered from retailers that I trust.

    Here is an imgur album with the shirt

    http://imgur.com/a/Tgk6D

    As far as I can tell the buttons are real MOP.

    The problem is the TB tag near the bottom looks too close to the placket and feels kind of plasticy. Also the inside tag says "Made in USA". Isn't all TB made in Japan now except for their MTM stuff? (I mean that could make this shirt from 2009 or something)

    For a size 0 the shoulders measure 16.75 or so if that helps.

    Thanks for the help.

    Real or Fake
    I have a couple items I am looking at on ebay. The sellers have great feedback/rating and they have emailed me back saying they are authentic and full refund available if not satisfied. So that's good! but wanted someone else to take a look at a couple of the items. please check them out and let me know.

    thanks

    I found this Polo Bear sweater at a local thrift shop. Didn't buy, but had them reserve it for me. I find that most of the ones that seem to be vintage have the bear facing the other direction, wheras this motif seems to be abundant on ones being sold with tags (which leads me to believe they might be fake). Still, quality doesn't seem bad, and the tags don't look off to me. Made in China tag is folded under main tag (by the store). A few similar ones have been sold for $200+ on Ebay (while some haven't sold at like $179 BIN). Your thoughts?
