I passed up some Churches today because they were just beat to hell. The whole vamp was creased and wrinkled. I don't find Churches very often.

TBH, i was more excited seeing this on the rack than the Lobb's;

A few pick ups from yesterday, with some nice pops.  All available.

 

Shirts... First time I've found a Budd shirt, very happy with that

 

 

Coupla ties, including a dangerously funky T&A

 

 

 

Another pop, this thing is crazy - I can't find this piece online but from the tag I'm guessing it's from 2012

 

 

Some deets (Click to show)

 

 

 

And this was an e-thrift, I love Invertere and this is another belter, UK42

It also is validation that we can DO something IRL with all this useless knowledge we obssess over and acquire while filtering through the 99% dreck when ripping racks.

Saw my first pair of Tod's yesterday. (Well at least since I knew to look for them) I passed on them as they were blocky as hell and small. doh, I realize I didn't get a picture of the actual shoe. What is the general consensus on Tod's. I imagine they have different quality levels like most brands.





Also saw my first pair of Alden's in a long time which were beat to hell and back again. You could barely make out the writing. Didn't bother with a picture.

Thanks.

No, no they are not, unfortunately.

Looks like an R3. Find the style number on the tag and Google it.

Toes are awesome. Shame their sunglasses aren't.

I like this guy. He is enhancing my vocabulary. Now, I can add "sodding" in with "swish". These UK colloquialisms are fun!

That is the funniest shit I have ever heard.
