FREE SHOES (sz. 12C but fit a smaller, D sized foot as well - I am 10.5D and wore them fine: 12.75" x 4 3/8")Thrift find from maybe 2-3 years ago that I never posted but am posting now as a Re-thrift to you because: 1. I love Nettleon shoes. This great American company was not more than an hour or two from where I live now and quite close to my Cottage. They made some fantastic shoes that still hold up today. 2. The buckle on the left shoe broke (the metal snapped and...
I have been quite lax in posting anything for quite some time but today we had a few that seemed fitting to get me started. Brioni tie; tie is actually a more vibrant green and mauve instead of red....might have to wait for sunlight to list this one as the tungsten light does not like green at all. Isaia (120s tagged 48, which I assume is about 38R US but I haven't even measured it yet. I just know it doesn't fit me!) Both headed to the 'Bay shortly...
Close. Thrifted a pair of Hanovers in black just yesterday. 9D
Thanks man, been busy but haven't stopped thrifting. It's amazing the things that have gone through this house....
Thank you...that was a fantastic read. Now I want to either quit my day job and revive the brand or, at the very least, keep these boots in their unworn fashion as a constant reminder of the greatness of American ingenuity and manufacturing. Between these and the high quality Tuczek shoes I sold a few years ago I might be able to open a shoe museum!
Thank you, I just checked. Made in the USA.
Okay, I guess pics or it didn't happen.
I stopped a few places - some nice suits, a tie, an overcoat....the usual fare. One item really baffles me, however: NWT Willis & Geiger Leather Hiking Boots w/ Vibram Sole, Metal Eyelets, Thinsulate and other features When did they stop making these boots? Any ideas? I am headed to eBay with them but, in all honesty, have NO clue what they are worth. First time that has happened to me with something. They are amazing....I will try to add pictures.
I just had to pick up this Brioni.....I don't know what I will do with it but it was simply too fantastic to leave behind. This is the most vintage-y vintage thrift i have ever thrifted. [[SPOILER]]
