    Sorry for the crappy phone photos, I think one of the cats decided my camera cable was a new toy

    @SpooPoker or any one that is good with leather; is the leather on these anything special? I need to clean these guys up a little bit

    I admit I have too much footwear, but if I had to trim to just two it might be the gems acquired yesterday. Thrifted vintage Tigers and thrift funded Vibergs

    I've handled a fake one and, though not as clean sounding as the real deal, they have a distinct ping as well.

    Best way to tell is definitely via the serial numbers being too perfectly lined up/engraved.

    Unfortunately, I'd have to agree in thinking that one one is fake as well @freehand

    Sorry!

    I made it onto the put this on eBay roundup! I was wondering why the listing shot up to 10 watchers all of a sudden. Pretty cool!

    riri zips are nice enough but they're like european ykk. i've seen many a facconable windbreaker with riri's that are an instapass for me.

    i recently saw a quicksilver reversible jacket with a riri zip, made in china. who cares?

    what's funny is that leather vest has a liner that looks like it's supposed to be next-to-skin. if it's a thing, it's def niche. breakin the law indeed.

    This is 100% Fake. Laque de chine "Chinese Lacquer" looks completely different, yours is their "Diamond Head" pattern. The stamp on the bottom is the autentication mark for the Lacquer see below.

    That is a Ligne 1, but the stamp is the same.
