    I don't have a photo, but I spotted a women's "Cucci" watch at a thrift store recently.

    That's awesome, definitely worth keeping for what it is.

    I bet a tie like that wasn't worn by messrs Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko and Gorbachev though. Apparently Mikhail Gorbachev got his suits from Savile Row, and his shirts from Jermyn Street. Never seen any pictures of Stalin wearing a tie though.

    LOL I was referring to this is not the "Chipp" label you are looking for. Yes, this was a boy's jacket.

    1. They're unworn. How did they get here? Did someone bring them? They didn't wear them. Were they bought here? What kind of retail outlet would carry these?
    2. There's no rhyme nor reason to how they price things at this place.
    3. I've actually been to Bydgoszcz.

    While whipping through the store gathering jeans, when I actually purchased these thinking they were Levi 501's

    I am glad they sold for $20.00 on Ebay.
