    Not sure the second Versace is authentic, never seen one before, I usually don't buy CD but it's not an awful 90's pattern, my goodness the Woolrich is awesome.

    Some very good fodder but I didn't want to spam the thread ....

    Thanks! @aging in rhythm let me know this and it turns out it says it on the receipt too, lol.
    Interesting, why is it called an "OJ"?

    Suit jacket or SC? I was leaning towards the former with the 4-button sleeves and pockets but looks at BB site, they have windowpane SCs with 4-button sleeves and V cut bottoms at the buttons...

    @RStreit27 Hermes looks real.

    On a related note: A buddy I introduced to thrifting sent me an "Is this real?" text tonight. I got it just as I was walking into a store. Before I could respond, I saw him at the tie rack with an amazing Hermes tie. Beat me by two minutes. Couldn't help but think, "If only I had kept my mouth shut."

    I know the feeling all too well. I have a friend that I wish I never turned on to thrifting. Doubt he ever set foot in a thrift store before he met me. Created my own competition. :facepalm:
