Are decent condition Johnston and Murphy oxford shoes worth picking up? I recently ran into a pair and passed, but now I'm rethinking. I know they make some nice shoes but not sure about ability to sell on 'em as I haven't seen to many in here (I could definitely be mistaken) and know they are just about mid grade in quality, correct? I have some pics on the phone that I'll attempt to upload in a bit.
Also, there's still that lanvin sportcoat available at one of my locals, been there since I posted a pic of the label like a month back, most likely because of price (flippers won't touch it at like $50) and awkward size (it's like a 40-42 short, and I mean SHORT). Really lovely material and construction though. Its a silvery grey. If anyone is interested, I can go back and get some more pictures and perhaps negotiate a better price. I wouldn't mind getting it to one of you guys at cost (just pay the shipping so I'm not out money), as I'd love to see that beauty go to a good home instead of hanging there forlornly.
And random, but Cerrutti had a made in Italy collab with Banana Republic? That was an interesting LNWOT piece I saw today at housing works, but unfortunately it was $180 Sucks because I've seen a handful of Cerrutis at great prices but they've all been mangled (holes, stains) or made in China (FUUUUUUUUU) and a finally find an Italian made one and its stupid money....
Also, black vintagish/nicely worn Trafalgar pebbled leather belt for $15, yea or nay?
I immensely appreciate the advice/this thread guys, so here's just a huuuuge thank you! I've noticed I'm slowly, very slowly, sharpening my preferences/tastes and honing my "thrifting eye," and it's all thanks to you guys/this thread haha
Edit: J & M oxfords/captoes crappy iphone pic:
Reposted pics of Lanvin label if anyone is interested in me proxying it for you at cost (gotta give back to this awesome site if I can ), I wish I had pics of the whole thing....
