    See, kids, this is why you pick up for quality, not just label... that tie is a Kiton, I'm about 99.5% sure. Matches several tags in my closet and the "styling" is spot on too. :nodding:

    :drool: at that Zegna... I need more SC's for work, PM'd hoping it's big enough!

    A great haul, by the way!

    I have to admit that I have been lucky over the last little while finding shell. I think over the last 4-5 years I have probably found 10-15 pair. Only 1 pair has ever been my size though.

    I've found Burberry Prorsum, Betsey Johnson, Fendi, Dolce and Gabbana and Christian Loubiton for my girlfriend.

    But apparently I picked up her favorite thing of all time today.


    A badminton racquet.

    The really thick wool/cashmere ones? Got one of those earlier in the year for same price. Love it but only got to wear it once. I've been making a killing on my fall winter wardrobe... right as summer begins. :fu:

    Agree with Nataku, that definitely looks like a Kiton that has lost its Kiton label. I have a few to compare against as well, they're in my sig if anyones curious. :D :spam:

    I have a spare "KITON" label that I removed from a thrashed shirt when I gutted it for buttons that you can have for free.

    (Aside: I sometimes collect photographs (on my computer) / or actual old clothing labels (in an Altoids tin) of pieces of clothing that I have personally seen that I think are interesting. It's a cheap hobby that I enjoy - don't judge.) [​IMG]

    what deal do you mean? I'm not so sure Etro is the kind of label that would compel a lot of counterfeiting.
