    ARE THOSE FUCKING GUCCI MATCHES? PM SENT


    This is insanely cool.


    Even though the last line in the authenticity tag is missing the first "A"?

    FAKE FAKE FAKE
    everything about that is wrong one of the worst fakes ive ever seen from dior (what spoo is to versace, I am to dior homme, actually on 2nd thought no chance :satisfied: but I do know the brand pretty well and I'm friendly with hedi slimane the former designer)

    Damn this was the day of "looks like pretty excellent quality but I've never heard of this brand before" which kinda validates PutThisOn's thing about "recognizing quality." My lunch time thrift break...picked up some decent stuff (Aquascutum tie) but also this Bowring Arundel bespoke shirt. Looked really close to my size & awesome...and the dude for whom it was made had arms 2" longer than mine (I'm a 15-32). I could have it altered...

    ...and there was a 2nd Bowring Arundel shirt there, too, but dude had it monogrammed JCR so I had to pass. Also saw a Lanvin blazer (metal buttons), probably about a 46, all hand stitched around pockets, lapel, all around! But it was this heinous beige camel-silk that screamed "late '50s space age polyester rec room curtains," and I just can't picture any of youse wanting it. If there's interest, I can go back and measure. Damn thing would cost you less than postage would. Plus postage.

    Oops, that will teach me to read properly :hide:



    But the actual Dior tag looks real man! How can you tell? That is downright scary I thought it was real.



    Eddievedr is one of my favourite user names here. Think I will play '10' while I browse through the threads here.

    thanx, but like youngamerican said its very rare to find dior homme in thrift stores, the label is silver but the stitching is the giveaway, real shirts are stiched neatly from 4 corners
    plus the inside tag is always silver with a refrence number,also they never produced a shirt with all bees, i see they really tried to capitalize on that logo aspect, i remember the golden days when i got dior denim for 65 a pop i made a killing on those!
    anyway all dior homme post hedi slimane is pure shite, kva really wet the bed on dior homme

    I have had the chance, and I couldn't agree more. Really good stuff, but still doesn't make the dirty bird crap.
