$350>

 

Mainline, Italy made models are upwards in the $600 region.

 

And their market isn't individuals who value quality of production, their target demo is strictly those who value purely branding.

A little thrift near me is going out of business. Everything is 30% off.  Saw this pair of split-toe black calfskin monkstraps by Joseph Abboud today. Leather soles, nailed heels. I will be happy to proxy - about $14 plus shipping.

 

 

 

 

 

Really? No interest? I thought they were very attractive. And I was inordinately pleased with myself for being able to describe them using the right terms. :satisfied:

Minty StefanoBi at consignment. Both from the same donor. Shoebags included, and one pair also had lasted trees in it.

Glad the tie worked out.

Almost identical to the ones worn by Sylvester Stallone in rocky IV. His were a bit taller.

Huh.  Well, fair enough. I'm still learning what this group considers attractive men's clothing. But then again, that's why I'm here. :)

I think they would get more interest if they looked like this

Those ones you have pictures of aren't what you're looking for.

i always think this stitch is handwork, correct me if i'm wrong

 

and i just handle an Italy made TF shirt. do you guys think the button hole is hand or machine made?

Quick stop today before heading out of town... Decent fodder items and then a pop on any bespoke savile piece for me.... Even as an orphan couldn't leave it for $5....
