    LOL! You have good eyes. I didn't even notice that. Obviously, the seller didn't either.

    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.

    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.

    Sweet boots.

    You're in Atlanta? Go down to the ballpark and sell them to Chipper. He'll probably give you tons of money for them.
