    I am also from NYC, and the thrifting is rough. However, we have tons of stores, but who has the time to get to them all. I average one good item every 5 visits and a great item every ten. I am a medical student currently studying for step 2, after thats done I plan to hit about 25 stores in one day, over all five boroughs.

    I thrifted this today, I haven't seen a charvet tag like this before. Fake or real old?


    Possibly a Made in USA Charvet? Or is it stated on the main label if that is the case?

    We'd need to see the whole tie, lining, fabric tag, etc.

    Doesn't look right to me, though. But I dont have much experience with old charvet.

    The retards stapled the price tag to the collar so there's a small hole, as can be seen in the photo, but other than that it's fine. Will let it go cheap due to that. French cuffs.

    Unless the staple cut threads, which is usually not the case with a shirt, you can massage the material a little bit and make those holes disappear.

    Doesn't seem right to me either. There is no sign of a fabric tag,or country. Anyway here is a photo of the tie, and the inside. If its fake, oh well It was 50 cents. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Girogio Armani black label has been the mainline for some odd years now

    collezioni has never been mainline, always the first diffusion line, and it looks about 20 years old

    I remembered seeing your post of these in this thread and spotted a pair on the shelf at the local GW.

    Did you find out which model these were?

    Some lady picked them up before I could grab them but she quickly sat them back down so I grabbed them. Not sure what size they are but they fit my size 11 feet great and they look brand new.

    What should I wear these with?

    Here is the Charvet tie I found earlier

    Those are Trickers

    Based on the Last ID, they appear to be Alfred Sargents. Someone near my original post pointed it out and they do appear to match exactly, right down to the medallion design on the toe.
