    Haha, that bad? I always tell myself shouldn't buy things I have no knowledge of but never seem to listen.

    Glad I've got a great community of fellow thrifters! (and a 10 day return policy)

    Take heart in the fact that the fake I picked up a few weeks ago was even worse than your fake. There's a basic, but helpful, guide on ebay on "how to authenticate a Louis Vuitton bag". I think I spent $7, maybe $9, on mine, and brought it home to have in front of me, to read the guide and look at the bag and gain some knowledge on them first-hand.

    looks like a corduroy shacket from here!

    you know, levi's stopped the red tab big E in 1971, but the white tab and orange tab (and also that black-and-gold tab) were used longer. i'd expect this to be a student jacket. they usually have the product code on the inner tag, might be easiest to look it up using that.

    EDIT: i'd pass but there's some levi's leisurewear, student wear etc that is interesting and flippable
