    Photographic evidence is requested, lest the veracity of your claims be in question.

    A bit off topic. If I was a thrifting noob, I would probably pass on Kiton upon seeing its logo. For a grail brand, it sure has a juvenile looking logo. What's that red dot supposed to be? A basketball?

    Thank you!
    I always have my cart in front of me when in the racks. I never leave it unattended if even it's empty. It's a good habit to have.
    Yeah, i would leave those unless they are super cheap and would only Kopp for the novelty. I've been leaving all sorts of cheap selvedge on the racks lately.
    I've always thought it was pronounced as "hermez."
    Does your outfit make lots of noise when you walk?
    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Speaking of gyming, i over worked on benching and pulled my right shoulder. My bench press went down 50 lbs. Because of that. I also avoid those high racks full of shirts. But when it comes to shirts, i have to let my left arm do all the over head shuffling. Be careful out there, Bros. #thriftinjuries

    I think it's pronounced "air-mez" or "air-maize"

    You covered the yankee / redneck variations quite nicely.

    Ohhhhhhhhh yeah, you are right because of the "r" just like how you would pronounce comme des Garçons. I feel weird trying to pronounce how the French would. Like if i talk about Lanvin and pronounce it like "lon vangh" (errrrrrr, not sure about spelling...) people won't know what I'm talking about or i feel like a wannabe Frenchman. So, i just say "Lan ven" and call it a day.
