    Nice concealed, I completely forgot they dropped today. Could've made a quick few hundred. Kind of disappointed in myself.

    Edit: And after seeing frenchy, I'm definitely down to go cart tipping with you breh :slayer:

    OK, so, no input on this Burberry black label? Legit? Good investment?

    (Single breast, peak lapel, 2 button, sugeon cuffs, double "vented" (I put that in quotes because the jacket is so short the vents are about 4 inches long -- true story), unstructured and fabric feels like gore tex.)

    (sorry, I just spent a shit ton and really need some feedback)

    Looks real GMMM. A quick hypebeast search turns up that Black Label is reserved for Japan, and I can confirm (from my limited Japanese) that that is, at the very least, authentic Japanese writing. The stitching looks on point, and I highly doubt that anyone faking Burberry is going to do the Black Label, Japan only line and be diligent enough to research Japanese words to put on their tags. I could be wrong though.

    Rolex cufflinks?

    Edit: Rolex President 18k cufflinks... If you're not worried about price ($3k+) you could try posting a wanted ad on timezone.com or watchuseek.com

    I had one in my cart, went to checkout, went back to my cart to check what size I clicked and they were sold out. Hats off to you sir for being able to check out that fast. They seriously need to set up something similar to livenation where once you have the shoes in your cart you have 5 minutes or so to check out. OH well, I was just going to sell them anyways...

    I am not sure if you have been to the store, but their customer service is quite atypical, the staff talk down to customers and are just generally rude assholes. Their site is a pretty close approximation of the real life experience.

    Had some time to spend after school, decided to hit the biggest charity shop in the area. Found some ties:
    Dunhill, brown with blue dots

    So hey people, I passed on a Pendleton SC from 1967 that was NWT (!). Wool, pattern was this khaki/sky blue plaid that looked like rec-room couches made of space age polymers.

    THere isn't a collector market or some other odd SW&D market for this, right? Nataku? Bueller? Anyone? Do I need to go back and pick it up?
