Sounds like 10.5D. That's the best size to find for resale IMO. 11.5C is the worst size to find. They aren't worth anything, just send them to me.

You look like if Gordon Ramsay and Niall Horan had a kid.

If this was at me, I'm keeping it, sorry! And yeah, I'm in the US.

This is a brag thread. But, sometimes with the good also comes the bad.  

 

I went to an estate sale in what is by far the most expensive neighborhood in Wichita.  Most of the homes are $1 Million PLUS.  This particular home was 11,000 Sg. Ft. 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, indoor pool, owned by a former Oil Man who was known to spend crazy sums of money.  I had high expectations.  

 

I continued to have high expectations and got pretty excited when the first thing I see is this: 

 

 

It was a massive ornate antique clock.  I know nothing about clocks, except it looked expensive and look in the background.  Lots of interesting stuff. 

 

That's where the fun ended.   The old man died a few years ago and the wife must have gotten rid of nearly everything.  No suits, no ties, no shirts, nothing.  There was one pair of very nice Lucchese boots, but they were priced at $200 and an old shitty pair of Bostonian shoes for $32!  

 

A huge disapointment.  

 

I did find two bronze sculptures that looked like Remington's.   They were signed by Coustou.  I asked about the price and they said they were waiting on an appraisal.   She thought maybe they were $400 each.   I left her a bid for much lower than that.  

 

Here are the same sculptures sold recently on ebay.

The pair they had was the exact same pair. 

 

For the stereo electronics guys, they had this.  I did not kop because I don't know much about these.  I can proxy if someone really wants it. 

 

 

 

I did get an Apres Ski coat that is pretty cool.  I don't know yet if its brag or if my 15 year old stepdaughter is going to claim it.

Since everyone is throwing their comments, I'll do, too. I think this looks good if you were a model or a mannequin or if you are going for that Thom Browne look with those high waters pants. I really really really like double breasted blazers! Too bad I can't pull this off...Another reason why I stopped wearing CM is because the fit has to be on point or you wouldn't look your best.

I haven't jaw dropped in this thread in a while. That Flat Head jacket though.

Of course, the only Coen brothers movie I haven't seen.
