Alden makes its own brown paste wax. I was always advised by Alden reps to use that on cigar, and it's always worked well.
I found some nice things at a local thrift yesterday but the prices were jacked. Very nice cream colored Lanvin sport coat with lots of hand work, but $30. Navy RL pima cotton sweater in my size and in good shape, but $15. Navy Asquatum suit, but $30 (and slacks had some fraying along one pocket edge that didn't take a repair). Nail head Norman Hilton suit with tiny mothhole on sleave, but $30. Had to say no on everything.
