    Thanks! I initially took my first clothing photos in there because it had the best natural light, but quickly realized that I liked the feel the room gave the photos.

    That's a really cool jacket. If I didn't already have a closet full of way too many overcoats for someone living in LA, I would definitely be interested.

    Yeah, before moving to California, I had a bunch of long coats. Now I have precisely zero, it does not even get close to cold enough to wear one. Maybe at midnight when it gets chilly :laugh:

    I was right to pass on this, right? Old as dirt and a small hole (looks like an actual hole, not moth hole) between the shoulders. Never seen anything by Gucci before so I have no idea how to spot a fake Gucci label. The content tag looks at the very least how I'd imagine an old Gucci content tag would look (forgot to take a picture of it). The quality was "meh", definitely not anything to write home about. So a) fake or real, b) how old if real, c) correct to pass (I'm guessing a) is irrelevant since b) and c) will counsel against getting it anyhow).

    That looks like Paolo Gucci, but I barely see any old Gucci items so I have no idea, just wanted to throw in my 2cents because I haven't posted in a while.
