    Thought so too. The keeper loop is all kinds of wrong... and the content tag says "style Italy"... why fake a Zegna tie? Seems weird to me.

    I wonder the same with a lot of fakes, but there's money to be made by putting a label on a cheap article.

    @winny94

    I'm pretty sure your reffering to my jacket as I saw that you asked on here awhile back so we can go over this again.Here is the "HANDMADE IN NEW YORK".

    [​IMG]

    The jacket is unlined in the back as seen here. The sides and back are not as seen here.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see here they made the sides, front and lapels in a half canvas build. There are three layers. The pen is showing were the canvassing stops just below the iner pocket. These are free floating layers and "NOT" fused. You can separate all layers by hand by sticking your hand inside iner pocket. There is no fusing to finish it the bottom as traditionally done.

    I passed on a pair of these a little while back too. Resale seems all over the place.

    Man, for your good, I'm just gonna pre-emptively state now that none of the shoes ever found in this thread, now or in the future, are size 11.5. None of them. :sly:

    Is this Levi Strauss & Co. cotton jacket a thing? It's roughly a 36 - S (I wear a 38 and it's snug and short-sleeved on me.) Fabric care label is in Japanese...

    Lots going on lately and havent been able to get out. Was only about a week without thrifting but for the addict that feels like an eternity, amirite?

    The good stuff didnt wait for me to return as I'm sure @MJMcRibb and @COtoKS were happy able to pick up my slack. Did score a plaid Bonobos shirt for me and some funk for the rest.
