    Picked this up in my noob days. Pretty sure it was an XXL which Burberry doesn't even make.

    Probably from a street vendor. They show a high price, makes the knock-offs look more desirable. Then you haggle the price down to a more realistic $30 or $50 or something. That's what they expect people to do.

    Burberry would do XXL wouldn't they? I take XXL or even XXXL sometimes. If they didn't do those sizes, non of their stuff would fit me would it?

    That Dolce & Gabbena + The North Faith definitely cracked me up! What will they think of next?

    I did spot some Stone Island knock-offs in the local department store. With the buttoned sleeve labels and the S I compass design, except it said ROBIN HOOD. See if I can get a photo in next couple of days.

    Maybe it was XXXL. Whatever it was someone in the thrift thread said that they never made anything that big.

    Not really a knock off, but funny nonetheless. We get all the Chinese brands along with the usual knock offs in this part of the world.

    KAOLA, the finest leather ware you can buy for under $5.

    Actually no, I saw it at a local Value Village. Think Goodwill or Savers for the Vancouver brethren. Felt sick to my stomach just seeing that.

    OTOH, another winner. Thanks for SF for all the education I didn't end up getting these. Soles were glued, not blake stitched, and I was 99.68% sure Borrelli has 2 R's

    Not a garment, but a local men's clothing store.
