    Stopped in to a couple stores for a quick search today. Not bad, picked up my first-ever Samuelsohn SC (despite living in Canada), possibly available, not sure yet. Also grabbed a purple Duchamp London tie, available. Pics coming soon!

    I'm back to reward the regular posters in this thread again. I picked up some more RLPL sunglasses for myself and family today. Along with those, I picked up/proxy'd a pair of the PL 9752. These are small, though, so please make sure they'll fit your face before PM'ing me. Size is: 61 12 130. They were $60. Then add on tax and real shipping - figure just under $70.

    Again, regular posters only, lurkers keep on lurkin'.


    Edit: The yellow Polo knit tie is also still available for proxy. All the other ones have gone.

    Same way I feel about tie swap boxes.

    Either way you're digging through other people's garbage.

    Bad ass deal for someone as those are nice looking glasses. Not 100% my style, but quick someone get them before my g/f sees and buys them for me [​IMG]

    Awesome as usual! That is an Hermes scarf print? I think that is identical to the first Hermes I ever found.

    Can I dibs the Fendi for the g/f!!? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Edit...I'm no bag expert, just googled....no weave to the top, but does have square corners...ok I'll stop play inspector gadget and let someone who knows what they are looking at give a real answer.

    AUTHENTICITY TIP: not woven all the way to top and botton - fake!

    AUTHENTICITY TIP: leather corners are rounded - fake!

    I'm almost certain that the shoes are legit.

    I was really excited to get the Isaia. I've been camped out at the spot where I found the first, and have found nothing [​IMG]

    The Fendi, I'm not sure about. I've seen a ton of Gucci/Prada/LV fakes in thrifts, and only real Coach/Dooney&Bourke level. This one seems like a great fake if not real. If anyone on the forum is good at IDing handbags, please let me know and I'll get you more pics!

    Terrible at handbags, but those shoes are real. I say this about every 25 or so pages. Who donates this stuff?!

    I passed on four RLPL, two EZ, and one Lorenzini for NM shirt today. They were awesome flavors and would have probably been my best shirt haul ever, except it looked like a teething baby chewed up all the collars! [​IMG]
