PM me your adress , if you want it - when I took it home, it doesn't quite go with what I thought it would.

Sent. Thank You.

Not exactly C&Js or Santonis but I gotta believe there will be some love among the older forum members for this thrifting find...

...vintage Frye harness boots with the square toe. Still in very nice shape although the previous owner appears to have tried to do a little antiquing as they appear to only have been shined with cordovan polish. They should clean up nicely.

Also a paisley Etro tie that appears to never have been knotted.

Today 4 nice ties and a pair of made in Australia rich cream linen Country Road NOS pants made from what looks like fine Italian linen.

Vman,
I bought an Oxxford odd jacket today. Its a very nice three button roll to two in a creamy tan, beautiful handwork...a great summer weight jacket. The trouble is it appears to have several faint and for the most part, small coffee stains. I normally would have passed but after reading your recent posts on stain removal I decided to risk the $3.99 and use it as a test coat. So, here is what I would like to know. What oxyclene do you use? Powder? How concentrated? How long can you leave it on the stain without affecting color? I'll post pictures later tonight and would appreciate your thoughts on how to proceed. Any help would be appreciated.

Pictures added. Sorry it took so long.





Is this the kind of thing you would attempt or is it asking to much?

I ran across this probably ca. 1980s RL Polo wool tie with fringed ends (I'm a sucker for the fringed ends), then found the deer tie for my father (he'll appreciate the motif). My father doesn't really own any Important Neckwear.



Not bad, but nothing to throw a parade over. Then I came across the tie on the left below, and must say I was pretty pleased. Then I saw the tie on the right, and thought "that's some nice silk", grabbed it and about fell over. I'm proud to be a member of the 2004 Chairman's Club. Who knows where such a Marinella came from.



Amusingly, the RL Polo was the most expensive at $3.88.

Alanc,

Nice finds. If you decide the E.Marinella doesen't work for you or realize you are not part of the Chairman's club let me know

Nice ties Alan.

I found these Polo bench made in England wingtips today. Can anyone tell me anything more about them?





Inside the shoe is printed 3357 3807 10-1/2 D 1911.

Based on what I've read here I'm guessing they are C&J, but I have no idea what model/last. Any information would be appreciated.

Not sure if this is the same 2004 Chairman's Club or not...

^Could be. I did a search for Chairman's Club and turned up a bunch of them. The one you linked seems west coast based, which would argue against it being this one. On the bright side, it firmly dates the tie.

Yeah that is a great tie! And as you said you're assured that it's recent vintage... and it appears there are hundreds if not thousands of Chairman's Clubs around... I'd venture it was made for a successful, high achiever in the Financial Services or Real Estate industries! Now please sell it to me! I'll double what you paid for it!!

I found two brooks brothers ties and one by Jos A. Banks that were $1.49 plus 50% off, at the goodwill today, I like finding ties like this cheap so when you wear them to work they look great and you are not too worried if you damage them I will post pisc later.
