This is something, right? Pure cashmere long coat, made in UK. Know this has been discussed here before, but the brand escapes me

Syms - unless there's another tag, it's the store brand.

These things are hurting my feet!  They feel sturdy and solid and even look good. But, one is rubbing the shit out of my little toe.  I think my toe and the shoes are going to war! 

What's the concensus about Bally shoes?  Are these bragworthy?  I'm wondering if I shouldn't put them back on ebay.  











I guess this sort of qualifies as a thrift fit.  I e-thrifted the shoes, the pants are the trousers from a Burberry Suit I thrifted (for $8) and I'm wearing a BB shirt thrifted for $4.  I think the socks were a gift. 

Usually need to size up in Italian vs us shoes

I do have narrow feet. Usually I wear 11.5 Narrow. These are 11D, they are the right size, I think I need to break them in or sell them. I like the color and style, just that one toe is driving me nuts.

Jesus. I hope you are trying really hard. If you don't buy, I'm sure others (including myself) would be happy for a proxy. I didn't even know Oxxford offered vicuña! One of these in going to get one of those for myself!

Yup, just got back from one near me.  3 pair Bills Khakis, 2 Jack Victor sport coats, pair of Incotex, staple Hickey Freeman navy blazer.  left a RLPL sweater that isn't marked down yet.   Going to check out another store in town.

If you could spare 300 bones of thrift money, I think it would be killer for an hour and a half on that track.

I think that's totally reasonable for 90 mins, tho I'd probably splurge on a 911. If you're gonna do it, do eet!

Couple of things from today.

 

 

Nikon D300 @ 7% of retail. N/A

 

My shearling game is weak,but I took a chance on this coat. Made in Sweden by C.O. Ericson & Co. Any info would be appreciated. Missing a button on the front, but there's a spare. I dug into it and I think it's real, but otherwise, I'm lost.

Cross post from the Ebay thread: I finally put together the guide to BB labels that I've been planning for a while. @Van Veen asked about it, but others may be interested.
