    I asked a while back but don't think I heard anything. Anyone know the market on 1990s Patagonia gear? This thing is in phenomenal condition. Size M. Only thing I'd even bother to mention is the elastic string in the bottom seam is stretched, but I imagine that's an easy fix for someone who cares.

    Is this true vintage? The tag is on the body of the garment, rather than the top. It seems legitimately old. (sz L)

    Thanks Thrifter Thread for bringing me to the reality that I had shelled out some serious bucks to Linda for
    a fake Prada suit. Hate to hear the news but now it can be returned for a refund.
    The materials tag has 100% wool in one language and then 80% wool in another language...

    [​IMG] WAT??! I see funky tags daily. and i'm sorry, but i must disagree with the general consensus.


    I have a Legit Runway level item. which has one COUNTRY on the english tag, and ANOTHER on the Japanese tag.



    - they really need somebody to help them with their tags......[​IMG]


    Pull a thread, burn it, see what it smells like.

    I'd probably try tiecrafters.com for that particular tie...wouldn't want to risk home-brew methods.

    I know what you guys are saying. Yes, Everything looks off. but to my eyes? It Looks like the cheap licensed BS worn by the kind of locals who would import a H2 Hummer to impress the ladies. too cheap to pay up for the real thing, and too cheap to buy a G-class. but all about the Bling. The Japanese "Ness" looks spot on. so my vote is real. but not at the regular Prada Level.

    @TheNeedMachine love your new Avatar. [​IMG]

    The right polo country is worth more than any RRL, the only reason resale on regular pieces is low is because the brand is defunct and people don't recognize its crazy expensive like RRL.
    Does anyone remember that native pancho homie found on here? that shits on RRL
