Okay, this is all stuff I have found in the past week, or 5 days that I actually went out thrifting,. I left out another like 20 mediocre items, and apologize for the mediocre stuff that got included by accident.

A few fun facts: The most expensive item in this lot are the Church's suede boots with the badass danite commando soles, at $30. Besides those and the other church's wingtips, nothing cost over $19.99, and only 3 things cost over $14.99. I am not a fan of consignment shopping, mostly because the stores here are pretty damn good at pricing. Everything is in excellent to superb condition, because I am too lazy to buy junk, except for 3 items (the henry poole jacket has a tiny hole, the lanvin suit pants have a couple stains I need to handwash out, and something else has a flaw I can't remember). A few of these pics were taken in the field and I am just too lazy to take new ones, so enjoy.



Shell captoe Aldens, hardly worn, with trees. Uh, yes.



Dior homme leaden sky jeans, that somebody wore about 2 times then cut the leather dior tag off of. They are authentic.



3 kiton and brioni shirts that i’m not sure were ever worn. $6 each, thanks.

I didn't know there was a preference between Polo and RL - was there a change in manufacturer?

And then he texted me and Eazy and said "MFING MARLOWS!" And I said "WAAATTHEFAAAK?!"

Shell is such an interesting material.
So (and I should probably know this or research myself) this refers to the whitish color it turns at the vamp creases? Which brushes away, but during the day you're wearing it looks kinda crappy? It also makes it prone to nicks and water spots too, right? I've hit my "dry" shell with Venetian and that seems to help, but it definitely seems to be an innate quality of the material. Maybe it has something to do with the batch, and Horween can tell and sells those batches at a discount. I definitely wouldn't put it past RL to want to squeeze more profit out of their shoes by asking for borderline material -- just enough to say it's shell, but not quite the best quality stuff.
