^No way I would spend that for 56R stuff. I might pick a couple of the most desirable items.

That's a really bizarre size and you'd probably have trouble selling those. +1 on what Alan said.If you really want to try, grab one or two of the nicest items.

Wait - did you try them on? Are these 56 as in US 44? Or 56 as in 56.
post #13204 of 110847
Since they're Oxxford they're probably an actual 56.
post #13205 of 110847
Definitely us 56

Oh well, at approx. $20 a pop for those types of goods, it was worth a double check! LOL

Not a great thrifting week for me... Even the stores have seemed kind of empty, it's like a drought or something. Just a few ties and some braces.

Holland and Sherry


Ralph Lauren Purple Label


A cool fox hunt emblematic from Polo. Very heavy. Not sure how popular it'll be here, but spending too much time in the UK has turned it endearing to me.


Another Polo embmatic, not as heavy as the foxes though. This one is a knock off of the UK RAF crest - similar but not exact. As before, not sure if anyone here will like it, but the Brits have infected my brain.


Cole Haan and Polo braces. Also found a pair of plain red Thurston braces (not pictured).

Dang! If that were an XL I'd be interested. I rarely ever find SW&D labels at a thrift. I love BoO shirts but I'm a bit rotund for their sizing so I'd take an XL (I think that's the largest size they make).

56R... yeah, that's tough. There ARE guys who would pick that kind of thing up - I'll PM you the names of one or two.

Did you measure the pit to pit on any of them? 56R would be what, 30 inches?! Just checking that can help - I've seen a 42 that fit like a 46 and vice versa. I'd be in the market if any of them somehow had a slightly smaller p2p like 26-27-28 inches, but 30 is just way too high.

So i picked up a few sport coats since they were cheap and the best suit. same store yielded a pair of Shell Alden loafers Billy Reid XL Linen shirt Brioni shirt Another Oxxford sport coat in a normal size and a few other things i cant remember at the moment.

A couple nice things today, mostly vintage. First, a Hickey-Freeman 3/2 sack tweed that probably goes back to the 60s. Second, another 3/2 sack tweed by Richman that is late 50s to early 60s. Third, a pair of Hanover shell cordovan, punched cap toes. Last, a Botany 500 overcoat by Daroff. No fabric label, but from the hand I'd say it is at least a cashmere blend. Its a beautiful black and brown weave and in mint condition. Being a Daroff, I think it must go back to at least the 50s.
