    Got my package from ChetBakerSings today and my mind is blown.
    Can't recommend trading with him enough.

    Guess that makes sense - better to counterfeit a $20 bill than $100's - less suspicion cast upon them. I think RL / Polo has to be the #1 listed apparel brand on eBay - no way they can check all those listings so they probably flag and check randomly. All of my Burberry listings to date have been flagged for approval for some reason, but no others. I sent the guy an extra $20 for his wasted time / gas / energy etc in returning it to me, and he was cool about it, thankfully.

    That FS tie is Ben Silver, which I hadn't heard of, but they seemed to sell well so I scooped that one and one other. Got another legit Lanvin tie too. Also got tricked into buying a Hawes and Curtis tie :facepalm:

    And this is how the non-tie portion of my day went...

    Vineyard Vines Polo, first VV for me

    Robert Graham, Bogosse

    Robert Graham, True Religion Big T, True Relgion, NWT Theory trousers

    Oh, and just a couple shirts...
    [​IMG]
    Woolrich fly fishing lure print, Gieves and Hawkes, J Press, 2x Peter Millar, 2x Pink, Hilditch & Key, 2x TM Lewin

    Left like 4 other TM Lewins because I wasn't sure on them...

    Wish I had had time to hit more than 2 stores, was on a roll.

    There are only two lines of Prada - Prada, and Prada Sport. Milano is not to be factored in the equation when looking at a label.

    That said, this is the good stuff. You're looking at maybe a buck, buck fitty.



    GO GET THAT.

    Some stuff I picked up today

    [​IMG]
    Top to Bottom
    Can't really see it , but PRL Navy Sportcoat store tagged it 44R, still have to measure.
    Pierre Cardin Boutique shirt. Is there a "good" or "bad" Cardin? I don't usually pick any of it up but I like the pattern and it fits.
    Ike Behar Shirt 16.5/32
    Ermenegildo Zegna Linen Trousers sz 34
    Left: Thin Donegal Tweed Tie Right: Neat Ermenegildo Zegna Tie

    All available (trade preferably) except the Cardin if anyone is interested.

    Those Zegna trousers are probably your best pick up. The Zegna tie looks old, and not so great, probably wasn't worth the pick up. Ike Behar also hasn't done well by me.

    Ah, k thanks for the info. I thought the Zegna tie was old, but for $1 i figured I'd pick it up. If nothing else I can just dump it on my brother.
