this reminds me... if anyone has one of these N-3B's laying around in a S, 36, or a 38. I'll buy. Already posted this in the Unofficial buy/sell/trade thread but no bites so hoping this works better.

Is this a thing? Ebay seems to think it's worth something, but I'm not familiar with the brand, and googling only brings up vintage ebay listings.

I have Mayor Maurice Tobin's tuxedo, presumably worn to FDR's third inaugural dinner. Maybe not A-list today, but he must have been on the A-list in 1941 to go to that dinner.

I'm still bummed I missed the ebay auction of that suit, I'm pretty sure it would have fit.

Last haul of the year. Two fox coats are for my wife, and when she tires of them, I'll make a pillow out of them.






























post #24732 of 51448
Really sorry, quite a bit off-topic.

To those that have kids:

I would like a separate bag to keep baby (and dog) things. My wife's will inevitably be filled with magazines, bags for the grocery store, and 5,246 of the keychains she has. Anyway, should I just look for something I like or are there things I should be considering? My natural inclination is to go for leather, but I'm not sure if there is some reason that would be a bad choice. Any recommendations/tips you can offer?

Seriously, how many pair of Allen Edmonds do you find there?

I'll de-lurk for a moment to say based on my frequent trips back to Milwaukee (and here in Madison) there's probably more AE than elsewhere, but: a) the population probably wore/wears fewer dress shoes, and b) they're also pretty thrifty, so condition is going to be a big concern.

You (or I) are more likely to find shoes from the less celebrated Wisconsin manufacturers: Nunn Bush, Stacy Adams and Freeman, with the odd Mason or Weyenberg thrown in. I'd also be happy to share my thoughts on specific stores if you want to message me.

God damn I hate posting after Spoo. Hit a new store today. It was raining trad. This is about half of what I had in my cart. Put a bunch back due to price (does the Goodwill warehouse staff just roll dice when pricing?), condition, or obvious orphan.



Not sure if this is what ya'll call "fodder." I've got enough true vintage to get the Etsy store going now, though.

Camel sportcoat fits me perfectly and will replace my beloved polyester one. Love the football buttons and patch pockets.

Also: I passed on Mani by Armani (SUPER 80s/90s styling... SUPER low gorge and buttoning point... almost a woman's blazer), Canali Proposta (diffusion line?), YSL white label Made in Canada. I also passed on an Armani Collezioni blazer yesterday that was cotton/synthetic blend. Are these good passes? This stuff is outside my wheelhouse right now.
