    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The tag looks like a generic "Made in Italy" tag to me, so not Drake's. Does it say "Made in Italy" on the tag?

    The mismatch between the label (BURBERRY LONDON) and the imprint on the back of the tip (Burberrys), along with the fake-looking label also suggests that the tie might not be authentic.

    Nah it was just a random story "i found these for like $10 in pakistan"

    They look legit and thats an awesome find. Vass shoes are up there with Lobb, Latanzi, EG, etc. I don't particularly have a problem with you asking what they are worth. Congrats.

    If that's still available, you should go back and get it at that price. It would do well on the AAAC Thrift Exchange.

    Went back and grabbed 3 of the Steve Alan shirts. These are the reverse/inside out ones, in a black and white gingham, a blue and white stripe and a red white and blue check.
    All are XL.
    Not sure what to charge, so if you want all 3, shoot me a pm?

    Vass has a diffusion line called Laslo Vass. so not every vass is equally high end, so unsure as for the quality of this one.

    These are the ones he made for Baldessarini, and I wasn't sure exactly where they stood.

    I'm sending it to Westling. I haven't dove fully into researching how much certain blazers go for on ebay because I enjoy trading with people here, but what makes something like that worth over $100? Pattern/fabric or the BB Makers label? Thanks!

    But considering they were made for Baldessarini (who used Caruso for its suits), they're probably pretty good. At least worth the $10.

    Just a quick note of thanks to my secret santa! Nice care package of ties & squares and my first ever pair of Pantharella socks! Well done if you got all THAT for $25.

    The temperature been in the 80’s here so there may not be a need for this here but found this recent lambskin Marc New York leather jacket. This jacket has a zipout quilt lining and appears to be worn less than ten times. The original owner fell on his shoulder and elbow and scratched the jacket and blamed the jacket and threw it away. In my size and for $17 what the heck.

    Also this heavier, I think also lambskin leather coat. The tags have faded away but I believe this is Armani? Coat has zipper removable collar.

    :lol:


    • Okay, the box measures 6.5" by 3.5" by 2".
    • It has a center of gravity that is 2.5 inches from the left and 4 inches from the right but dead center on the 3.5" axis.
    • When I shake it, there is a light knock.
    • It does not slosh so the contents are solid.
    • It does not register on the digital scale so it's less than a pound.

    Any other questions that I can answer without unwrapping it?

    I would like to change my guess....

    I figure it is most likely a Tropic Thunder pimp chain, made of solid gold and diamonds

    Is the German maker of Paul Stuart suits a known brand? Picked up a beauty in 42L, seems extremely recent

    Few pairs of pants in 36W - Em's of Masons (never heard, but really high quality, split waistband etc) in a cool dark patterned moleskin material, insanely thick and heavy military twill, khaki color, flat front Polo by Corneliani, pleated Canali, Black D&G corduroys

    Left a pair of Helmut Lang khakis from the owner, weird stains on it.

    Also grabbed a nice Paul and Shark button down in XL.

    Can get pics later, but all available.
