    Nice grab @Sartoriamo ! Those were one of my favorite sunglasses back in high school. They are awesome looking by themselves! Paired with most faces, not so much, haha. Still love them! They were good enough for Cyclops and Ichiro, after all.
    I’d just throw them up with a decent buy it now somewhere in the range of eBay comps and mention they’re a little loose in the description. It’s to be expected of glasses that age.

    EDIT: I just looked up comps for those and Romeos. Looks like I need to ask my mom to go through my old boxes in storage at home. Holy crud. I had the Penny, Romeo, Splice, and a couple other ones of that general era. Looks like they’re becoming quite the collectibles.

    Mine now :D but after looking at it closer im going to have to go with 1950s European custom knee length house coat.

    I think the maker is actually called 'handmade". someone sent in a pair of boots from them and I feel like I got gypped on keywords. And its nearly impossible to google.

    :/

    Also e-thrifted a Belstaff nylon jacket. Feeling good but not 100% on this. Can I get a legit check? Paid less than I normally would at true thrift so no biggie if it's no bueno.

    I know there was a discussion in the second thread about the brand name needing to be in all caps but I can't remember how that ended up. Any help is much appreciated!

    Haha, thanks! Here's one that needs a legit check which is definitely within your realm of expertise. No tags anywhere. There's a hole on the seam in the pocket where one may have been.

    thats tough. That medusa / logo is one of the most heavily faked pieces of all time. its been on shirts, jackets, sweaters etc. Some from that era (late 90s) were very good actually. I can say ive never seen that zipper on a versace piece, or that particular jacket. That piece would have been made by Ittierre, and would have had the older Ittierre tag on it which was white and probably would have been on the side seam. The size tag would have more than likely been under the versace tag. Im leaning towards excellent copy but without any other tags its pretty hard to say.

    That said, even if it is, its certainly very, very salable!

    Awesome, thanks! Now it can find its way to the appropriate sales channel instead of sitting in my backlog. :cheers:

    I can’t offer much other than to say that I’ve had that zipper pull at least once or twice. I can’t remember what jacket it was on, but I’ll check. My thought at the time was that it was a replacement from a tailor for a missing zipper pull...a generic replacement. I’ll try to look at what I have.

    For almost 8 years I've been posting in this thread and flipping for fun. It wasn't until we moved into our house that I've had the space for proper storage and a photo set up. Step 1 was purchasing a Z-rack that arrived today. Steps 2 and beyond all involve the photography part of the equation. My photography knowledge is zero but thankfully the public library is within walking distance. What you see below are quick and dirty MacGyvered pics.

    Almost all fodder.

    For me: Ledbury french cuff, BB seersucker, Bills Khakis fleece, Barbour vest

    This is better than thrifting. My parents are preparing to downsize and move into their new house in July. This past weekend my dad cleaned out his closet and we loaded my car up with tons of stuff, mostly things I thrifted for him over the years and the rest is from my deceased uncle's closet. All the SCs and sweaters have been posted here but the ties are all new to me. Keeping the Ricci and Kiton.

    Congrats on the new space @matty long legs!

    Love that you utilize the local library. I wondered if anyone else still went there lol
