Jeremy Scott makes some whacky ass stuff, but he has a following

@LaundryRoom It's definitely been mentioned by a few people (i learned about it from SF once upon a time, too, so i'm definitely not the original).
Came out clean!

Having recently taken the dive down the rabbit hole of trying to authenticate that brand, I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re all fakes. Even the ones from the company themselves. As in, they’re all junk and just hyped up. Haha.
On my recent find I’m almost to the point of saying it is a super fake...

15 min run-through at the GW on my way to pick up my kid:

NWT Atlanta Braves Freddie Freeman Jersey, plus NWT Braves National League Champs hats from ‘91, ‘92 and ‘93.

Didn’t realize at the time that the ‘91 hat is signed by hall of famer John Smoltz.

NWT 1996 Atlanta Olympics hats. My 14 year-old son is gonna love these.

Crazy cool find. Havent played baseball in awhile but thats a weird place to autograph a cap. Thats usually a place where the owner of the hat puts his name.

Agreed, strange place for an autograph. I checked online and it seems to be a pretty close match to the other Smoltz signatures I found. It’s a mystery.

here's an interesting one. all those high end fashion brands we all covet finding... hermes, LV, gucci, saint laurent, dior (the current stuff, not the out of date ones) . what level of actual quality are we talking? my gut says better than prada, but nothing like loro piana.

as far as bags and wallets, i'm a total noob. will a ghurka bag or wallet blow the doors off a hermes equivalent? or is ghurka shit too compared to something even more baller?

to be clear, i'm talking materials and quality of construction. you know, with that in mind, Alden makes a better shoe than Gucci. so, like Ghurka makes a better bag than Hermes.

Aren't all the "it bags" corrected grain leather? Isn't that still cheap leather compared to Horween or similar?

Okay, might be talking out my ass. Seems Hermès does use non corrected grain... But looking at my wife's 10 year old Gucci bag, that thing has gotta be corrected grain. Texture is way too perfect.
