Based on what Audiogon has listed in the online blue book, $300 is about full blown retail for these. The Model 2 was released in 1977 at a cost of $990.

They released subsequent models and added an a, b, c etc. to the end.

Pretty fugly Gucci, available

You all know by now my affinity for paisley print ties, Talbott hand sewn for Paul Simon
467
Ancient red wool PRL for Eric Salm's Sussex Shop, with the OG price tag of $27.50. Does anybody else get excited by old labels. No? Just me?

My new favorite tie, E. Marinella, my first! This thing is awesome! N/A

263
Vintage Florsheim brick sole, suede, saddle shoes. I'm wearing the bitches as I type! N/A

Chester Barrie for Harrod's glen plaid sport coat. Another first! Pattern matching is spot on, unfortunately too big for me and has a couple spots I'm going to try and work some magic on. Styling isn't very dated but the labels look old.Sz 44 maybe, haven't measured it yet. Tentatively not available pending spot removal.

And these!!!!! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Paul Stuart made in England canvas and leather spectators!!!! 22 nail heel pattern!! Sexy as all hell! My most favorite thrifted shoes so far. These are just a little too big though. ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif Size is marked 11.5 M but must run small because they are only slightly to big for me. Anybody know a good method for shrinking shoes? baldy[1].gif

Pickings are insanely slim here in the TC area. I haven't had a notable clothing find in over a month.

I saw something weird the other day.

Hand sewn robert talbott ties about 20 or so
100% polyester......they at $22.50 price tags (NWT) attached on some of them
post #37926 of 110118
Must have been really old or fake. I think I've seen a few poly Talbott ties that looked like they hailed from the late 70's-early 80's.

Somebody said fake and Spoo helped in authenticating. I had not worn it yet and  asked him to consign for me and this was the result:

Thanks Spoo!

^^^ LOL!  That's awesome.  Spoo seems to be everywhere.  My wife was talking about some orange Chloe pants she won on eBay.  When she showed me, it turned out they were from Spoo.  patch[1].gif

I was already planning it, but this definitely confirms that I need to get into the city this summer.  I'd never find these out in the burbs!
