    I've passed a pair of super old/super short nike shorts at least 3 times at a store near my office. My initial guess was tennis.

    Might need to go back.

    Naw, I'm pretty sure @drlivingston was the last recipient of the thriftening, if he gets the chance to photo all 70-80 NWT items from **REDACTED**

    Its probably easier to identify a NON-Orphan than the other way around. A non-orphan (i.e. a Blazer of Sport Coat) will be Navy with Metal Buttons Or Black with metal buttons (blazers) or if its a Sport Coat, it will often be a pattern (although this gets tricky with a patterned suit). There are really lots of exceptions, but once you figure it out, you'll know instantly.

    ...and Zegna is pretty easy - all of their blazers/SC's from the past several years say "Jacket" near the bottom of the inside tag.

    Found a fuckin fake Cartier Tank yesterday, probably the biggest letdown I've had since Alfani changed their tags to look like Isaia
