    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.

    Yes, if in good condition and for cheap.

    That vicuna is an awesome find but not a Prorsum. I'm thinking you are asking if it's the walkway line?

    All Burberry stuff says prosurum on the label. That's part of the logo.

    Well, anytime you have that Burberry's it's their older stuff from the 90's or so. Prorsum is super rare in thrift stores. I've yet to seen on posted on here. A few years back, I looked up the label and found out it's their walkway only line with a red tag.

    Edit: Found it.

    Recently, I'm guessing they've put on a RTW Prorsum line.

    In short, any tag with the "'s" is not that great. [​IMG]

    For me, if I'm not sure about how great a label is, I'll just resort to the quality test. If quality and a good price, cop. If not, blow my nose into the sleeves and exclaim, "Woooo, Morena!"

    Hmmm, saw a older trench coat on fleabay that is going for $ because the sell added the word "Prorsum" in the label but no close up of the labels...Not very ethical but that goes to show you, sometimes, eBay buyers are clueless...

    Yeah, I knew it was older, but I honestly don't know much about Burberry. I do know a nice coat when I see one, though!

    Thanks for all the info!

    Very nice!

    Worth a kop?

    Aesthetically: yes

    I also think the white label is an older label (early-60s or earlier) but I could be wrong. You'd need to look for other clues too, like construction, buttons, etc

    Size 14 dress shoes. Any style, preferably laced. Brown or Black.

    For a 15 year old kid to wear to a moc debate in less than two weeks. Nothing fancy, he will probably only wear them once or twice.

    I think this is Woolrich? If not, I've seen an almost identical one a while back, picked it up for a friend super cheap.
