    I play vintage Ping Eye1 from that same era. Bad ass irons from the late 70s and early 80s.
    They are non-conforming to today's anti square groove rule, but they can be used in tournament play since they are grandfathered in.

    Font looks super fake.

    Synergy. Found this earlier this week and really wished it was my size.

    Also picked up a NWOT AE calfskin belt in walnut for $3. I see AE shoes all the time but rarely see the belts, this one in my size too. Now I just need matching Strands...

    Ok, story time.

    I hit the store and start my usual rounds, head straight to the shoes. Not a damn thing. Old florshiem corrected grains worn into the ground etc. I'm kinda bummed but used to it, only one stop out of five yields anything. The pants rack catches my eye. A couple Incotex supers, cool. They're pleated, but next to them is a wild plaid linen Brioni. Another Brioni. Then a linen Ricci. At this point I figure I'm picking up leftovers, but I'm too deep into this rack to stop. I figure all the jackets are long gone. So I scour the pants trying to pick up leftovers and find some others. It's still a good haul, you know? So I hit the jackets, and three in it's Brioni. More Brioni. Zilli. More Brioni. More Zilli. Ricci. What the shit is going on??? My blood pressure spikes it just keeps going. 1 out of 3 is a damn grail. I fill up a cart. I go get another cart. They're full.

    I had to walk my damn bike home. I only brought a backpack with me because that's about the most I find on a day out. I tried riding home but the bags were so heavy tied on I was almost crashing every block.

    Dudes, I'm still so happy. I think I got high off thrifting.

    Without better pics, I would say fake based on that general design / color selection, and the font. The first "Hermes Scarf" I found was a fake, and it has that same font and letter placement. Does the material feel kinda scratchy when you rub it together? It shouldn't. Is there a Black care tag with "Reine Siede" or w/e on the back? If so then prolly fake. Give us some better pics mate.
