As others have said above, you'll find no love for penny loafers with suits on SF, although it is a pretty common look among East Coast trads. For everything else, from chinos to flannel trousers and a blazer though, penny loafers are great. In addition to the Randolph, you might check out the AE Patriot. Got a pair from shoebank recently for $200 and have been very pleased.
I can smell the heavy cologne through my monitor.
As someone above noted, read more, post less. This is a very helpful thread but patience will run out.
Same store same size as my recent C&J find; maybe the same guy's shoes. Some decent PRL suede wingtips. Bench Made in England in block letters, so I'm guessing that's made by C&J?
After ages of never finding a decent shoe, 2 weeks ago I score some C&J. Then today. Oh, hello Salvatore.
Figured since I was wearing tweed and all.....
Beyond ties and shoes, and occasionally shirts, I don't think that thrifting is a very good way for a noob (as most of us were) to actually improve your wardrobe, at least at anything other than a glacial pace. You have find things that simultaneously satisfy each criteria: (a) are of good quality, (b) fit you well (c) are not dated. AND, you have to have an eye trained to identify those. How often does that alignment happen in a thrift shop? Not much for a casual...

After never, never having any luck finding shoos, found a winner yesterday. C & J Sydney loafers. Bummed they don't fit me. Also some AE to round it out.
