    Bingo, that's what I'd do. It's cool but there's not a lot I'd pay $75 for at a thrift store.
    Wow, nice internet find!

    I have found that same Charvet tie before, in another color. Still baffled by the graphic...

    Hey, PAL. He asked a question about the piece--specifically, the name of the artwork--not about value. You're the one who immediately jumped to what's-it-worth. Now, that might or might not be worthwhile information to the prospective purchaser, but that is not the question he posed. You can look it up. And I agree with Concealed. I'd buy that piece because I like it, and $75 ain't that much scratch and if it's gone when you go back, well, it's gone.

    As for obsessions with flip-value, I'm not sure that I agree, after reading this thread daily since January. There are some folks here, I think, who would spit-roast their poodle if they thought there was a viable market for barbecue Fido.

    I was thinking more along these lines.

    I don't know why that comment pissed me off so much. Maybe I hate my job, and I'm taking it out on Internet duders who are probably perfectly pleasant people.

    In my experience, unless you get Louis Vuitton from a proper LV store, the chances of an item being a fake is quite high. Not saying there is no authentic stuff out there in the wild, but for every one authentic piece, I seem to find 3 clear fakes.

    No product codes on a recent piece means almost certainly a fake (and the better counterfeiters have smartened up by actually sticking codes in their products to give the illusion of authenticity. Even quality checking does not work, some of these counterfeits are very well made, not far off a legit LV piece).

    Older pieces I have little experience with, I believe LV only started using these date codes from the 1970's to present, but dont quote me on that.

    Thanks Mr Klobber. I didn't get these at a thrift. They were part of my mother's estate and I believe they are from the 80's and 90's. All the other signs are there. I.E stitching is correct, leather is correct, hardware is correct, heat stamp present. Just don't see date codes on 3 of the 6 bags.
