There's only one bush that's relevant...
Authentic? Looks good to me but LV isn't my area.
I'm voting fake, Patch looks terrible, fonts jacked up and usually when LV puts a leather patch on the front of something it is blank so it can be monogrammed by the owner of the piece
Thanks! Figured it was worth a shot at 0.49
No problemo, I actually have a legit one from the line that they sold in Nordstrom back in the early 80's
Thanks for the info jebarne, and thank you for including some bigger city context!
@Nataku or anyone else learned in the ways of foreign military garb. What do I have here?
First part is a quilted jacket / liner(?). I am not sure if this is a stand-alone piece or a liner.
It's labeled GE SPEKON and has some amazing RIES zippers.
The second part of the equation is this jacket. It is marked GE GIRARDI and has OPTI zippers.
They don't zip or fasten together. However, when the Spekon is placed within the Gerardi, you get something that could easily brave the Arctic tundra. Any thoughts? Probably available.
NWT USAF flame resistant jacket - Picked this a month ago
Those Dior deminz
Looks like the first is a Liner, and all three are German from '96 by the looks of it. Wish I were more familiar with other NATO country's militaria, but it's been a while.
I think I see some back-stitching on that patch (where they stitched back over previous stitching) - if so, dead give-away for being a replica. LV stitching should be meticulous with no overlap. But for 49 cents, why not, right? I bought a fake purse on purpose for $8 just to bring it home and use the "how to spot a fake LV" guide to see what really made it a fake, and feel way more confident now that I'd be able to spot one vs. taking a gamble. Plus, my sister wanted the one I bought even though I told her it was fake, and other folks do as well (I would not list it on ebay tho).
Ayo, I just realized I been Busy and I have yet to have a chance to sign up for the gift exchange is it too late too sign up? Im down to exchange with more than one person too. lol.
I slacked on signing up, but I will give good gifts. believe me.
He said it was too late when the last person asked, sorry man! There's a site-wide gift exchange going on, I believe.
Heres a tip, go into the store and make the SA show you every small leather good. I do this every so often to re-familiarize myself with their products. That way if you come across something more recent or exclusive your not ass out completely. At this point though, my eyes scan a item like a Terminator with the red vision and everything lol. nothing gets past me.
