Men's consignments are usually so niche that the people who run them know their stuff and deals - especially flippable deals - are hard to come by. It's the consignments that are mostly women's but have a men's section where the steals can be had.Awesome. You can see the excellent craftsmanship - that waist is closer cut than anything you'd see today short of Edward Green and above. The contrast with the bulbous-toe last is striking.
That moment when you see a suit and notice the pants have no waistband in the back - OXXFORD!!!! Nope, just no-name local MTM.

A bunch of us ordered Allen Edmonds shoes from...
