New to Styleforum-- discovered it after a huge thrift win last week, and now I'm hooked. Anyway, I wanted to share the finds that brought me here in the first place.

 

In short: I'm American, recently moved to Switzerland, and desperately needed some shoes. Found a local thrift shop. Found some shoes that looked like they had no business being in a thrift shop, and it turns out I was right:

 

First, I found these-- not a bad find:

 

 

 

Not bad, right? For 15 bucks, a great pair of Cheaney shoes. Then... I found these:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zegna limited-editions. #354/1000. Found them for 20 bucks.

 

Needless to say, I paid and got the heck out-- I felt like they might change their mind before I left the store. I'll be hitting this place often!

Been hard out here for a pimp. But a few things.

Horn horn, J. Crew cardi, and gator belt are NA, wearing 2 of the 3 as I type this. Uniqlo jacket is unstructured and awesome. Shoes are Church's.

Welcome to the USA! RRL corduroy pants heavily distressed (or are they totally wasted? The crotch and the seat especially. Can anyone comment?)

I found a large stash of womens clothing that I would like to pick through. I know there are some scarfs and a couple fur coats. I am unfamiliar with womens clothing as I do not have a lot of experience in this area. Does any one have some suggestions on brands I should be looking for or should I just use the force? I will have my phone with me so there is always that.
