    Oh yeah, some APC's, Acne and Incotex.

    [​IMG]

    And for the other stuff, the Oxxford, Isaia, Belvest, Poole are in my size 38/40, but I'm not 100% sure if I want to keep them.
    The Canali is 52EU, the Zegna 15milmil15 is 56EU, the shirts are mostly my size, but the Zegna shirts are 16.5, grey Gucci is 17. Shoes are:

    Alden = 10.5
    Florsheim = 9
    AE = 8
    RLPL = 9
    Brooks Brothers shells = 10
    Gucci = 8
    AE = 11
    Harris dal 1913 = 9.5
    Bally = 13


    Patek looks legit, but I'll have to get it checked. Vuitton is pretty fake I think.

    So, back at the ranch -

    (For some reason my quote button isn't working)

    But to those that asked, yeah I thought so too creeping up on the rack. I see that pic I posted earlier and there looks to be 15 Versace silks hanging there. Long story short, I roll up to them and theres a whole flock of them - all brand new with tags! Looks like a store went out of business and donated their inventory. These are all the highest grade polyester you can imagine, all entirely made in Korea. So, meet my 32 new friends!

    *You may ask why I picked these up.... well, there is actually a market for "fake" Versace shirts, believe it or not. But as you can see below, I don't think Ill have a hard time quintupling my money at the least. Today was also half price day :fonz:

    I also have to say, it was a total rush to get back in the trenches :)

    ^^^ I knew there had to be more to the story when I saw the original picture. One or two Versace shirts I could wrap my head around, but I counted at least 9 on hangers and a few loose shirts in the cart (which was also clearly in a thrift store and NOT in some boutique consignment store in Palm Beach). It was a good "edge-of-your-seat" thrift moment, though. [​IMG]

    Also, if anyone knows a pimp, or someone flamboyant in any size between XL - XXXXXXL (srs), please let me know!

    ^^^ RE: those size XXXXXXL shirts:
    1. Someone who is big enough to wear a size XXXXXXL really should not attempt to dress flamboyantly (he lost that right about 4 X's ago);
    2. I can imagine the S. Korean factory workers who made those size XXXXXXL shirts shaking their heads as their stereotypes of Americans were confirmed; and
    3. You could always cut the back panels out of those size XXXXXXL shirts and make car covers or picnic blankets.

    Edit, I almost always hate tucked in t shirts, but this one is so slim that I think it's passable.
