funny how things work out
I urge everyone to stay. I've defended DM7 before. I like our little ecosystem; a pungent blend of macho smack talk and high-falutin' aesthetisism. We all add to that aroma. No one should leave (but everyone should F'ING CHILL). Now for some fun...

Answered my own question, the chinos were Couture...
^^^ LOL! MIS-CHIEF!
LOL! You have good eyes. I didn't even notice that. Obviously, the seller didn't either.
Cleaning out the close in the guest bedroom [the thrift closet]...some pretty nice staple stuff that never made it to B&S or eBay. All available.
Brooks Brothers 100% cotton v-neck sweater. Tagged L.
Recent, unstructured BR cotton jacket. Double vented. Tagged 42, fits reasonably slim. Picked up for myself, but too large. Good for summer.
Awesome Fitzpatrick [Made in Ireland, Aran Sweater Market] sweater. Has elbow patches. 100% shetland wool. Tagged 44, fits more like a 42.
Recent Hickey Freeman blue hounds-tooth shirt. Tagged M. Has hidden under the collar buttons.
Orvis nylon windbreaker. Tagged M.
Orvis flannel. MOP buttons. Tagged XL. Fairly heavy in terms of weight.
Woolrich quilted shirtjacket. Nice piece. Tagged as M, probably best for L. Very small imperfection on elbow. This thing is HEAVY.
Zegna soft 100% linen jacket. Patch pockets. Unvented, unstructured. Tagged as EU52.
Orvis lightweight flannel. Tagged L. Cool colors, cranberry and green.
Dig, Closest thing I have on my "available" rack, but I am having trouble telling what color the ties you posted are. The checks are playing tricks with my eyes.
I've never seen a Burberry denim jacket before. I thought it might be fake at first. Still not sure. About 4 sizes to large for me at an XXL
Wasn't sure what this was. I only know one "GV" assuming that's what those letters are. It was a wrinkled leathery feeling jacket. Probably a women's jacket sitting but it was hanging up in the men's section.
dude that burberry jacket looks mega fake to me.
Cowboy boots are either loved or hated on the styleforum, personally I love them. Today I found a pair of Polo Western by Ralph Lauren lizard skin boots.
Google tells me these were made in the early 80's by Dan Post for RL. The Polo Western line was later replaced by the RRL line.
Any Burberry at a size 2XL or larger would have me leaning towards the fake end of the scale. The fact that it's a denim jacket puts it over the edge. Screams Fake.
The Burberry jacket definitely looks fake. That said, I've found a number of real polo shirts in size XXL.
Cobbled! Not perfect, but what is? The Strands are another story altogether. I'll have to get a second opinion on those.
You're in Atlanta? Go down to the ballpark and sell them to Chipper. He'll probably give you tons of money for them.
