Crockett Jones "for Gordon Scott". $14.98 How do these things end up here in the states? Shrug...

Wow, Tarmac! Excellent find. immsmc, Gordon Scott is sadly no longer among the living. But that shoe in that shade of suede is truly an inspired combination. I hope to find something like that every time I walk into the thrift store--of course usually it's something different.

Well off Brits with great shoemakers especially suede who leave it behind in charity shops like Down Under to pack the requisite presents for back 'Ome.

Wow, what a find! They seem to be in very nice condition.
6E, UK size or US size?

Hermes ties, at least in my experience, aren't that rare at thrift. I find them all along. I've never seen anything other than ties, though.

Years ago I thrifted (it is a verb too) my wife an incredible Hermes reversible duffle coat--brown silk velvet with horn toggles on one side and a silk hunting print with silk-covered buttons on the other. She wore it until it became completely frayed. More recently I found her a vintage Hermes kimono coat in pure alpaca. Mens clothing is much more rare and for the most part really not all that special. The linen and cotton pocket squares are incredible and I'll always have a soft spot for the scarf print ties. What I'd like to know is why the Hermes twill ties tend to be so beat up at the thrifts. Most of them definitely look to have lived a nice full life. Is it just the parsimonious bastards that are drawn to them?

I presume Gordon Scott is/was UK-only so I guess 6E UK? i cant even ram my feet in there but they are so nice to look at. If they were my size I would have cried tears of joy...

^ That's a handy find. I believe Alden and Brooks Bros. both use rebranded Rochesters.
