I only know because I thrifted Phil knight's biography last year. These are a shoe they released with the book and dimension six was a potential name for the company before he went with Nike. Cool find but I don't know about resell potential.
Oh, cool! Thanks. I guess that’s why the Nike logo is ghosted out.

Just three ties today, the Bizzocchis are available, the Reed is not. Apparently my local Goodwill boutique sends shit that doesn’t sell to the location I found these at about 20 minutes away. The Boutique wanted $20 for the three, the regular Goodwill repriced at the much more reasonable rate of $3.99 -20%. Amazing how that works.

Then again it isn’t always more reasonably priced.

perhaps if you gave the fabric a good brushing before and after a wash with fabric softener.and made an effort to tease the fabric into settling back as was.

The Embroidery has changed the weave. so if you just unpicked it, the changes to the weave would remain.
you would do well to try to let the weave resettle.

Has anyone successfully removed embroidery without noticing? I've left tons of patagucci and Carhartt because of that

I believe the key is to cut the stitching from the inside. and pull the threads out from the outside. then massage the fabric. wash it. massage it. then dry. maybe brushing the inside. and using hands to work the fleece.

either way. i guess the fluffier the better. to hide the weave.

Carhartt might give you some problems. but nothing your own patch couldn't solve.
