    Thanks, man. I JUST read this http://reviews.ebay.com/Burberrys-BURBERRY-Prorsum-Labels?ugid=10000000004206383

    According to the guide, "[Prorsum label] shows the word BURBERRY, the equestrian, 'ESTABLISHED 1856', 'PRORSUM COLLECTION' or any combination of those. Some labels are red in color." I wished I had read this before bidding...Oh well, a not so expensive lesson learned...

    So, the word "Prorsum" was apart of the Burberrys label, inscribed on "the knight's banner", until the name change in 1999. That's when the word "Prorsum" is exclusively used on SOME of their Prorsum line...a bit confusing...Any other lines, excluded the word "Prorsum" from the label.

    Sounds about right?

    yup.

    given your recent posts/brags (dior homme flower child tie, vinnntage canali db, prorsum mis-snipe, bill blass, etc) i think you should take a few weeks to read and learn before making ANY purchases. your pocketbook will thank you. it happens to everyone.

    Quality is very poor IMHO, buttons are cool, and thats about it. I just sold one in navy and one in black, if either had gone for $56 I would've thrown a party. Sold em both for 30 and was happy to do so. Just look for the recent label, that stuff is much better, although you could get Oxxford for about the same which would be a much, much better buy for the money IMO.

    That was a good rec! I'm glad I didn't pass that by... (Now I have to read the first five on my laptop, lols).


    ALSO:

    It has come embarrassingly to my attention that my non-updated phone's been eating some of my posts and private messages again. A full investigation will be launched. In the meantime, please stay with a buddy after dark, avoid suspicious hypertext links, and let me know if I've dropped the ball on something. Thanks.

    correct. but some of the runway pieces on the burberry prorsum line do not actually say burberry prorsum

    in general: old burberry, burberry brit, burberry london etc are to be left unless fit is 100% perfect and you need that particular item

    quick and dirty:

    YSL - Rive Gauche ONLY
    Lanvin- stylized woman with daughter in what people have claimed as a "sail boat" sometimes black label black text
    Dior - Silver label, fabric tag will have Dior Homme then FOR JAPAN ONLY and care instructions on it
    versace - usually good. versus is the only stuff you should pass up.
    Calvin Klein Collection - only if it fits you. black label with COLLECTION nothing else. the jeans label is NOT a part of collection even if it has a black label

    ^not a prob, let me know if they're any other brands you need a little breif on:

    zegna ties- depends on the quality you want, Grey label ones are the best but older. the newer ones are thin and way too shiny to be wearable (XXX Ermengildo zegna ) going sideways on the blade.
    however the recent zegna ties that have couture XXX are built alot like the older grey label ones

    Vineyard vines ties- only if not made in china

    hermes- only if real, spread at wide end, look for loop of string, on non woven: lining should amtch base color of silk, skinny end of tie has hermes, made in france and the call number style number of tie.
    woven ties: thick HERMES ` Paris keeper, not just logo

    pass if its ugly, i've passed on a few of these, ebay has been flooded with hermes ties recently. so only buy it if it suits you/your needs or the needs of your forum members.


    if you find something thats ridiculously nice, its common courtesy to offer it here for cost/low price before you go to sell it on the B&S or fleabay or w/e medium you have. Good Karma goes along way in life :slayer:
