    These are bad-ass, but are they fakes? Fake whats? Maybe the branding wore off; let's say that's what happened, and you should buy them for $700.

    Fair enough, it will likely end up in the box in my closet to be re-donated to Goodwill at some point. That's my Knowledge Box - all the dumb shit I've bought through bad guesses at value, passing fancies, or missed damage. Happily thrifts around here are cheap, so even a pretty sizable box is a cheap lesson.

    The Chanel's should have laser etched logos on the lenses, along with a laser etched serial number.

    Also that Gieves Hussar blew my mind.

    Well it looks like the longer I do this I will end up breaking every rule I set for myself.
    This one was no clothing with polyester.

    But it is real nice and I love the color and styling and I did have a hole in my wardrobe that this fit perfectly...
    I am ashamed!

    Why would you make a rule stating no clothing with polyester? Practically every good thing I find outdoors related has polyester in it. If go broke and wouldn't find much good stuff if I had that rule in place.

    Marks & Spencer sport coat, but very nice.
    Sadly it's a 48L.

    And just now a Crombie, wool & cashmere navy blazer which is a perfect fit.
    Someone has removed all it's cuff buttons but I guess I can replace all buttons with pewter now.

    Because I was stupid. I am now rethinking having any rule other than just use good common sense.

    I'm not sure I'd call it stupid. Depends what you want. Most performance fabrics and outdoor gear thrive on poly and other synthetic fabrics whereas traditional menswear doesn't. If you want a down jacket you need to have Poly, if you want a sport coat you want to avoid it, just depends on context (I don't buy poly in anything for #menswear)
