^Thanks for the kind words. I can certainly say that thrifting isn't $2 Lobbs every day, but you should bask in this success.
The Charvet and these Lobbs--as our veteran thrifters commented above--may be the tip of the iceberg on this haul. Is this particular store a stand alone or is it part of a chain? If it's a chain you might want to scout out its sister stores and pay a visit. The items from this donor could have been indescriminately spread over all of them from a central distribution center.
Once again, very nice find tonylumpkin. Lobbs are rare enough, but a pair which doesn't appear to have ever seen a foot (even fleetingly) and in a popular size with trees is something else entirely. I agree with the others that there may well be more at the thrift.
Here are a few of my latest finds.
Navy blue micro-herringbone Kiton suit; 3/2 sb w/ twin vents. I found the jacket first, but it took me another thirty minutes or so to find the pants which were priced separately. In my least tolerant moments I hate this sort of lazy behavior on the part of the thrift store staff. But then I remember just how much laziness is our friend. A very useful suit, I suppose, if a bit sedate. The price, however, was right. Let's just say I got back some change from a 10 and a 5.
Ferragamo Tramezza lizard loafers. Well, why not? I actually really like these shoes. They're the first Tramezzas I've seen in person and they do seem to be very nicely made. Classic Florentine split-toe style and the lizard is a nice twist.
Finally, a couple of T&A bespoke shirts. I really like checks. These have the classic three-button cuff and are nicely darted in the back. Dig the pattern matching. As luck would have it they fit great. The first one is Sea Island cotton. $4.25 each.
