    Androfan beat me to it. Supreme Court upheld the Stolen Valor Act earlier this year. It's been controversial because it can limit legitimate collectors as opposed to poseurs. Even some veteran groups have weighed in, questioning whether a vet in need of cash, or his heirs, should be barred from selling medals to someone who will take care of them. Real world, I don't think anyone has been prosecuted who wasn't using medals to lie about themselves.

    That's incorrect. The Supreme Court has not ruled on the case yet (US v. Alvarez, docket: http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.aspx?FileName=/docketfiles/11-210.htm), and the provision under review doesn't have anything to do with selling medals - only with lying about them. The provision against selling medals has already been upheld as constitutional, long ago.

    I stand corrected. Still, I suspect it is rarely enforced. Just a hunch.

    Had a pretty good night even though my usual favorite spot yielded nothing and I only had half an hour... Someone dropped off a lot of Italian stuff, some good, some just okay that I'd never heard of. I first noticed when I ran into a couple of Boggi Milano ties (firsts for me) that I left because they were ugly and don't flip well.

    First, does anyone have any info on these two tags? Had some nice pick stitching but otherwise didn't seem overly special, but made in Italy

    Does anyone know this tag? The cloth is by Ermengildo Zegna but there's no maker's tag other than the content tag

    That one and this one both fit like very slim 40R's... Which is to say, a bit too slim for me. I like both so I'm gonna see what my tailor can do. If not they'll be available.

    This one's a very nice Pal Zileri Lab, very dark navy with a striped texture

    Weird that I found this after I just found this other Pal Zileri on Monday (just got around to taking pictures)... 44-46L and available. Also, anyone know about this fabric tag?

    Found some Italian ties to go with these... Need a Spoo Signal for this one. Real?

    Also a Valentino

    And an Altea... Darker than it looks here. thought these sold better when I picked it up, so I might return it

    Here's the tartan tie I found the other day. Very good condition Forbes tartan

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another first for me, a Ben Silver shirt... REALLY nice with MOP buttons. 17.5 x 35 and available

    [​IMG]

    and since I took pictures, here's the HF Tux jacket I found the other day
