    I probably shouldn't have just sent the guy a message saying I would :embar:

    Lol, while typing that emoticon my phone autocorrected embar to embargo... seems surprisingly appropriate

    Picked this up today; probably shouldn't have. It's been really dry around here, or I just haven't been picking up stuff that I would have before. If anyone wants this, let me know, or it will likely go back. There's a repair that needs to be done to the pants.

    Now where did I leave that Spoo signal? Picked it up, 48 drop 8 - bad call?

    Thanks. It definitely didn't feel like a black label piece, which I have yet to see, so glad I passed.

    black label just says "RALPH LAUREN" in all caps, sans-serif font. purple label says "Ralph Lauren" in cursive. if you're not sure, just check to see whether i have an erection or not.

    These reminded me alot of the Duckie Brown for Florsheim line so I picked them up. The left tip a little peeling, is this repairable? Oh...and did I do well with these? $11.

    Ralph is (only?) found at Dillards I believe. Some of the sunglasses come from Italy, but not worthwhile on the rest.

    Was I wrong to pass on some bad-ass/absurd blue leather loafers made by Milord? I think it's a shop in Florence, but I couldn't even find these shoes selling on eBay....

    While I'll wait for Spoo to give a definitive answer, my novice one would be that, while Versace's highest quality at the time, that thing appears massively dated, in an odd color, and :uhoh: 4 buttons? :uhoh: Depending on what you paid, it may have been a pass.

    Badass wasn't the first thing that came to mind. Google seems to indicate it's a NY based company? And a pair of their (?) trousers used to be on yoox. This is all speculative at best, further analysis still pending.


    And can you provide measurement?

    Yeah, it's 4 button so ... I'm never going to wear the damn thing, that's for sure.
