    It never ceases to amaze me the insane amount of shit that people like you know about things I know nothing about.

    Man, that is a smoking nice tie. If I didn't have 200,000 of my own to sell I'd make an offer.




    That could be anything. That tag is from one of the large scale manufacturers that makes ties for many brands. Not a Boss, Ferre or Burberry, they all use that label but imprint their brand on the inside of the blade. Might be something like an Altea, Tino Cosma. More than likely its something middle of the road and pretty average.

    Finally broke a long streak of nothing and found a few things...

    Filson work shirt/jacket, size L. Missing a front button and a little big but I'll probably actually use this for doing work in...

    Hickey Freeman shawl collar tux jacket (size 42 roughly)

    Left behind a bunch of stuff since I was kind of broke at the moment, the biggest one being a Brooks Brothers made in England soft wool winter coat that needed a cleaning pretty bad (size XL) and a J Crew Duffel coat size L.

    Any idea on value for those? Second one is more gray than pictures and first is much more navy... need to keep playing with my white balance.

    Also found these bad boys

    :eek:

    What is this symbol? Saw it inside a woman's fur coat. Lining looked nice, but no tag to identify.

    Light wash is 32x32 and dark is 30x32. Both are straight cut I believe. I was even wearing RRL jeans when I found them :slayer:

    Nice score on RRL jeans. I rate these highly, shame no fit on me.

    ================================================================
    Talking of jeans, seller on eBay flipping Zilli jeans as if they were candy. Trouble is I could not get round to bidding because .....

    I have issues when a seller with low FB plonks 10's of pairs of extremely high end jeans and has a seemingly endless stock. Anyone have any opions on sellers like that - i.e. likelihood of authentic vs non authentic?

    Help a fellow out who is semi obsessed with high end jeans :nodding:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Tags-ZI...316677?pt=US_CSA_MC_Jeans&hash=item41648511c5

    I am pretty sure those are not authentic, but I am no "Zilli" expert. My hunch says if it is too good to be true ...

    Judging by completed listings, this guy has a steady supply of Zilli. Did not know Zilli were on the counterfeit radar, so I will reserve judgement until I receive better info. Until I do, I keep my mouse away from the bid button.
