    I saw it on the rack and saw fur and thought it was an Andrew Marc thing. Then a glimpse of the yellow pocket…and that shape of zipper - I grabbed the zipper and saw LP and said oh fuck. Ask questions later. It was the cashmere side out. I didnt even look at the price tag (I just wanted to make sure it didnt fall off in my cart so they wouldn't sell it to me) until I checked out. $19.99. I got in the car and didnt see the LP tag in the pocket, so I thought it was a zip out from outerwear, so I went back in to look for outerwear lol. Only when I got home did I realize it was reversible and there were pockets on the other side and found the tag in that pocket. Im still high so my A game was way off lol.

    Cashmere of whatever Armani sub-brand

    This coat in 'made for a giant' size, with LP fabric

    All in all, a bunch of notable small finds for a tenderfoot such as myself. Total for everything was a bit over $50

    If Spoo picked that up in a store I frequent I'll be all :( :( but I'm glad it went to someone who knows what they have!

    You probably already know it, but kanye west was photographed wearing those and the value suddenly skyrocketed. Cool find and easy money if you sell!

    Kanye's influence in the sneaker 'game' is huge. It's amazing.

    Yeah. I found it a bit annoying that his reach crossed into the realm of vans.

    Growing up skateboarding, those were the shoes I held a bit higher sentimentally. Ah, oh well, what can you do....
