Yeah, this place restocks about every week. They're picky about what they get, too. I was talking to the clerks about how they do it--the owner spends most of his time traveling around the east coast area looking for stuff, going to estate sales and whatever, instead of taking stuff from people just coming in the store.
What always surprises me is how great the stuff from the 50s and 60s is, even when it's made by Sears or JC Penny. Picked up a great cashmere blazer w/ some defunct N.C. men's store name, from the 60s according to the tag. Fit is spot on, nice and trim, narrow lapels, nice details--was about 30 bucks.
They've had nice shoes occasionally. Saw some LL Bean sorels that I wanted for 25 bucks but they were a size too big.
