Beautiful shoes btw!

I live in Ottawa. An old news ad shows that it was sold at Charle's Ogilvy's shop. Another member informed me that the shoes are probably about 70 years old and the company went under a long time ago :)

My first post. I love this thread and have been lurking for about a year and have learned so much. Actually met member Eddie veddr (hope I got that right) which prompted me to post. Cool guy.

Last two days have been great, bought a 2/3rds of a 1985 Trek 660 on friday from a guy of CL,  and grabbed a few ties from a local GW. Then grabbed a great lunch with @DerekS great dude, looking forward to meeting up again with him. Then headed over to pick up a friend to go out for a party. Got up today and went to drop bike off, as well as a large wad of cash at the bike shop to start the restoration. Then the shopping started, hit up a gw, and it was all up from there.

So I've raided one of your cities this weekend. I'll say I think this city has gotten a good cleaning out, but I've been able to pick out a few nice things. Still two days and a couple dozen thrift stores to go. Did pick up an insane vintage Abercrombie pea coat made in italy. Stole some Ted baker, Ike Behar, and Canali ties, and a half dozen Canali suits as well. Prices here such compared to Dallaa.


I owe a couple people PMs with deets on a couple items and I'll get back to you when I get home, this was kinda a last minute decision.

Navy cashmere blazer, 39.5R. Can someone tell me if this the real deal? Never heard of this label before, and not the usual Loro Piana tag I have seen. Available, pm to trade

Guessing from just the tags posted, Im going to say it's probably just made with LP Cashmere.

It's better than run of the mill fabric, but not anything super special.

I was referring to the number at the the bottom right. I guess the full size is EU 50

That was my hopeful guess; and given it's Galliano (albeit the Gazette stuff) it would make the most sense. Thank you for your expertise!

Excellent day in the field. My local store has had an 80% off all summer items for the past week so I wasn't expecting much. My spouse and I went through nearly every item in the store. Grabbed a few concert t-shirts, some college sports clothing, and these:

 

 

 

 

 

So much fun! The sweater is just wonderful! Super soft and nearly perfect. The cords are really well put together.

 

MN folks, I picked up this coupon book while I was there:

Some pretty decent coupons to Goodwill and at least one other place I frequent...

 

Cheers!
