    I got these Lanvin high-tops on consignment, and just before listing I'm having doubts. The only branding is on the insole. Can I get a legit check?

    ^ Sold a pair of Lanvin sneakers awhile back that had the same look and construction. The soles are the giveaway - Those are the same soles as Common Projects and Greats and others. Made by the same factory in Italy. I'd say legit.

    Actually here I'll just show everyone what I mean about the soles with my pair of Greats:

    20190210_144348.jpg
    Same sole design with the squiggles, etc.

    20190210_144352.jpg
    Same little mold mark, which can be seen on Common Projects and I think SLP and a few others.

    20190210_144401.jpg
    And yours should have the same welt stitching like this all around. Again, this same stitching and even the knurled toe/heel strips are the same on CP and others.

    It's one way to authenticate those designer shoes if there's not much labels/markings to go off of. They all use this same factory/maker to produce their shoes, or at least the soles.

    In the store, orphan Davies & Son jacket. Ridiculously well made. Is it a grab at $5? 15498389068799157240188510816637.jpg 15498389930307327818828284424411.jpg

    Looks legit, but (from memory) no ‘Lanvin’ on the soles?

    The serial # should turn something up on the inter webs.

    Possible selling point: No longer made in that one factory in Italy. (Think they’re made in Portugal now).

    076621F2-99D8-485E-84FE-C5E7B10CDE48.png The sole type/brand is Margom, in case anyone cares. I actually just picked up a pair of the H1 DS110 sneakers that use the same sole and are essentially CP look alikes.

    The polo is absolutely huge. Marked a medium but at least a xxxlarge.
    Monks are Alden and keepers.
    Imperial shell decent and available.

    What is the H1 DS110? Sounds like a flu virus.

    Is this yours, @Fueco??

    I think this could be the man. Found in an LA thrift, 33" long... perfect for a 6'4" dude like Magnum P.I.

    Obligatory pic of the jacket...
