Haha, thanks. I've just found every rare-ish book I could hope to find around here, so it was nice to discover you could do the same thing with clothes.

@ Aces watch: !!!

Don't poke holes in a belt. Take it to a cobbler and they can shorten it from the buckle side. Looks MUCH better. My guy charges $6 to do that.

I went back and got the lands end 7 fold tie
the construction on this damn thing is amazing. Pretty cool pattern as well.
I always pass over Lands End ties, Ill be more careful from now on.

Most of the RTW Gieves and Hawkes I have run into has either been made by Hickey or Canali.

This -> http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=24109 is an excellent thread for identification purposes.

I hit my "A" thrift today and I was not disappointed.

I picked up a pair of perfectly fitting AE Parks in brown with the vibram sole to round out my upper scale dress shoe collection. I'm on my feet all day on a tile/carpet (no padding) sales floor so I'm interested in comparing the feel of the soles by the end of the day. Also a pair of Clarks black mocs for padding around during an upcoming trip along with a Loro Piana BB Brooksease 3 roll 2 blazer (with SHINY brass buttons). It's being adjusted to fit me as we speak.

However...

My first Aldens. They don't fit but I wasn't leaving them. I'm sure someone with small feet will offer a fair deal for them. I actually squeezed my 10.5 dogs into them just for shits and giggles.

Also found these. Anyone have a clue as to what the brand is? I can't find a thing.

Lastly, this Beretta sport coat. I can't find anything like it on the internet. It's marked 42R but fits me like a 44R or L even. I'm considering having it altered but not sure.



Cool "Beretta" buttons.



Zippered pockets!?



I need a cigarette.

Dig, Those Alden's are a size 7? How did you fit your feet in them? Not sure 'bout boots..what size? That SC is AWESOME! It's Beretta..yeah, the firearms company. Zippered pockets so your game and/or ammo doesn't fall out.(or stash a Px4 in there)

Picked up what appear to be an unworn pair of Tod's loafers. Tagged 6.5 which means I found a nice new pair of shoes for wifey. She tried them on....men's 6.5. Do men really have feet this small?

Those boots look like AS or C&J? Probably used by the same person as the Beretta jacket for country pursuits.

LOL, I think that label is trying to tell Spoo something...

His wife may have mentioned it too...
