    Had to pass on both a Canali and Oxxford jacket this weekend (my first find of each), both because of damage (moth holes on the Oxxfod, torn lining in the pocket of the Canali) :-(. I did pick up a pretty interesting - though quite vintage - double breasted Valentino. It's a smidge too tight for me though so it's probably going to end up on the bay. Also got a really cool colored Zegna sportcoat, which may or may not end up on the bay, a beautiful Gieves & Hawkes Saville Row sportcoat, and a Burberry jacket separate. Will post pics later.

    Also two pretty perfect Thomas Pink shirts and a perfect RL Polo shirt.

    It's so not hard to determine a fake Hermes. It's very easy in fact. To pick that first one up thinking it was possibly legit is, I'm sorry, ridiculous, and a waste of $2. Now, I picked up a fake Hermes that had all those same obviously fake tags, and posted a picture here. This was last year sometime. I spent the $2 to buy the fake Hermes to show here so people would know that these tags are on fakes. I'm super stoked to see my benevolent investment has paid off. Read the thread folks. It'll save you a lot more than $2 over time.

    What's the deal with Hermes ties anyway? They're so flimsy. I don't like them personally. Their "whimsical" designs are pretty lame generally (though I do fancy some of the geometrical patterns) and they are so unsubstantial. Of the dozen or so I've thrifted over the years i've kept one because i really liked the pattern. I wear it once or twice a year - and never when it's windy.

    I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but I found a Hartmann Luggage ballistic nylon/leather duffle a couple of weeks back and copped it for the most excellent price. It has a bit of wear with some loose wisps of threads along the seams (I snipped them), the original HL lock is present but w/o key and the leather shoulder strap has a rubber? insert at the shoulder point that was so hardened by heat or age that it cracked when I first picked it up. I called Hartmann as I was told by a luggage store that the maker would take care of it. Sure will. Just $40 US.

    I think I'll just let the rubber crack and fall off. Otherwise, I like it.

    HEARTBREAKING pass today. Facconable, hand made in Italy SUPER 180's DB Suit (solid grey with faint blue stripes). Double vents, pleated, size 52L (Eu). Perfect condition. $100!!!!!! :angry: This place, while more expensive than most, NEVER prices suits more that $30 or $40......

    Any thoughts, suggestions? This is made by Cantarelli, correct? Probably not my size, so I would be buying to flip, but $100? FOK

    If it were S/B, you could have probably made $50-$75 on the old B/S forum. With it being D/B and with B/S how it is now, I wouldn't bother. You'd be lucky to break even. Super 180s though.....wow!

    ^^^^^^^Thanks for the sound advice, I think I needed that before I made a rash decision on that one. I must say I had never seen/felt S 180's in the flesh before.....unreal, like a cloud really.

    I have no idea how I'd find out; the thing is I don't think the sole is leather, which leads me to believe it isn't from a super high-end shoemaker.

    I really like the pattern on that burberry jacket.
    I disagree, some of the whimsicals are a little vinyard vine looking, but I really like the small knot the thin silk gives and the feel of the silk.
