Hit a bunch of places over the last couple weekends. Mostly junk but two thrift highlights in my size were: - Loden coat, for Lodenfrey of Munich. Excellent condition for $24.99 . - Oxxford sportcoat. The Raleigh's tag places it as at least 22 years old, but also appears in excellent shape and only cost $1.99 .
For sale is a pair of Edward Green shoes. The Chelsea is a plain captoe balmoral. Shoes are new with box but have some degree of store wear. Box also shows signs of wear and adhesive residue. A three digit number has been written in silver marker on the soles of one shoe. My price is $675 $650 per pair including shipping and insurance to United States. Prices for other destinations available upon request. Sorry, no returns. Model: Chelsea Color: Black Calf Size:...

Some interesting shoes at Marshalls in Rockville / Montrose Road. All show signs of store wear. - Scarpe DiBianco balmorals. A little too sleek for my tastes. Smooth black in size 11, and scotch grain brown in size 8 I think; I think they're UK sizes. $380 each. - Brunello Cucinelii wingtip, size 45, $200, no box - Boss balmoral shoes in dark burgundy, $299, no box. Seemed a much better quality than the usual Boss you'd find at discount stores, from the line "Supreme...
I would recommend buying in person, since you want be to sure you have the correct size & width for a particular brand and last. You probably don't have the time to order, return, and re-order if an online purchase doesn't fit. Try Nordstrom Rack for Allen Edmonds; typically these will run $200-$225 but they only have a handful of models available. The ones near me I've seen black Madison Ave and black Clifton which would be nice enough for 98% of the population but SF...
Lately I've been to a number of the area Nordstrom Rack locations looking for Allen Edmonds. The same models seem to keep popping up: walnut Clifton, chestnut 6th Avenue, black Neumora double monk, black Bergamo loafer, black Madison Avenue. Prices are $199, and $229 for the Neumora. I even saw Park Avenue a couple places: 10D at 18th& L and 11EEE at Pentagon City. I didn't see any AEs in the clearance section though. At Potomac Mills Neiman Marcus Last Call, there are...
For sale is a pair of Edward Green shoe trees. These were originally purchased at Sky Valet in Washington DC and I used them for a pair of RLPL Peering sized 11.5/12. The trees are unlacquered and have a few black spots from stray shoe polish. I think these trees only come in whole sizes, though I do not know if one would size up or size down, nor I do not believe these trees are for a specific last either but someone else has more info let me know. Approximate length and...
Nordstrom Rack opened a downtown location at 1800 L Street NW. Haven't been to this one yet, but for the other DC area Rack locations I've found that the AE selection hasn't been as good as it used to be. Apparently there were long lines to get in. http://apps.washingtonpost.com/g/page/local/nordstrom-racks-downtown-debut/107/?hpid=z4
