Some random stuff from the past couple of days. Had very little free time due to house hunting.

 

3 x Kent Wang polos. All size L. Pop for me. Found 5 all together but gave @Fashionablemale 2 of them as he was at the same store as I was.

 

 

 

 

VV party shirt for kids! Size 4T.

 

 

 

2 NWT VV ties.

My mom quilts. Usually miniature / doll size but has done full human size. Seems like a fun hobby. We need more men quilters. More power to you.

Not sure what's feels worse anymore, reuniting orphans at a thrift store only to find pee stains or being 3rd in line for a 8000 sqft luxury estate sale filled to the brim only to find out the owner was the biggest cole haan and steven madden fan to ever live.  First two items are the cool things from that sale this morning and the rest were thrifted afterward.  Besides the two pictured I took home a BB factory store wool/cash coat and a southern tide gingham shirt.   

 

Saw this as I entered the house.  Anonymous but it spoke to me.  

 

Only real value item - Michele CSX Diamond Chronograph watch.  Domed chrystal.  Too bad no profit as it has been claimed by my wife...

 

Found this sucker today.  Super sweet Jcrew Triple Patch Pokcet Blackwatch Tartan from 2000. Too bad it's too big (tagged L, measures to a 44R), would love to add this to my wardrobe

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Pop on Ludlow silk/linen.  Great looking unstructured jacket with patch pockets.   Only thing is one button...

Will spoiler the rest of the fodder as to not take up space.  A lot of volume today but not too much quality =/

BB Blue Brown Windowpane Suit 44L

 

 

BB Beige Plaid 38S

 

Two almost identical BB cotton jackets from different stores and different sizes.  One 46L (made in USA) on 39R (Phillipines)

 

 

Jcrew chord, unstructured.  M (measures to a 42R)

 

Hickey Freeman Gray Plaid wool/silk blend 42R.

I consider volume days to be great days.

TBNY? I guess I need to read up on that company, I thought they were new and just made in Italy.

Very cool find, can't wait to see pics! Really liked that show.

Hi everyone, I've read several hundred pages of posts so I finally feel ready to start posting with some of my own recent finds and dumb questions. Excuse the sucky pictures I took with my sucky camera.

 

Allen Edmonds patent leather plain toe oxfords:

What model are these? I have found several other pairs of Allen Edmonds and they all have the model name right under where it says Allen Edmonds. Google is not helpful. Are these fake? The picture doesn't really show their quality but they seem well-made.

 

Here's a couple of Zegna ties I found today:

 

 

I also picked up a couple Robert Talbott Best of Class and Brooks Brothers. I also picked up two ties I had questions about:

 


 Should I have left either of these?

 

Also, a nice little find on my way out the door: on top of a stack of frying pans was one that somebody didn't bother to clean all of the eggs out of before giving it to Goodwill...

 

 

Surprised something like this could have stayed there long enough for me to find it, I thought this brand had good name recognition.

Welcome. The AE's aren't fake. I had a similar pair of patent leathers that were bought at retail.

 

I believe yours are these: https://www.amazon.com/Allen-Edmonds-Kendall-Oxford-Patent/dp/B000H18TXW?ie=UTF8&tag=vglnk-c2405-20
