I can't wait to see these pictures. I'm not sure I know what that means (unless it means VERY ventilated arches).

So I couldn't find a buyer after two listings on ebay.  Do any of you have an interest in either of these?

 

Faconnable Loro Piana Storm System jacket - Size L.  100% wool with a quilted interior.  Has a very small hole on the left sleeve (see pics), which is the only real wear.  If this were a medium I would keep it and have it fixed.

J Press 3 roll 2 half-lined sport coat - tagged 42R (but see measurements).  Feels to be cotton although it is not marked.

 

 

Pit to pit: 21.5 in.

Collar to bottom of jacket: 31 in.

Shoulder to shoulder (from top of shoulder seam): 18.5"

Sleeves (from top shoulder seam): 24"

Thanks for the info everyone! I'll take that pair back and continue the search. That makes 3/3 AE shoes found at different stores today that were damaged.

The rough texture of the leather at the bottom and the white residue.

No idea. I'm not sure these will go for the same as a regular Mulholland Bros. bag. Those are pretty ridiculously expensive.

I know they've been doing the bag thing since the Explorer first came out, so maybe they're just two different vintages, with the better stuff being older? Just a guess.

That makes sense, although again, anything quality in canvas and leather (Filson) I'm keeping that shit. Plus my wife has stolen the two Filson bags I've found so far, so this bad boy is mine. biggrin.gif

Sounds like driving loafers

Saw two pairs of v-cleats yesterday... This was the prettier of the two.

Dude must have been sliding around on that V like a pair of Heelys.

Guys I can't speak to what Faconnable did with it, but I can't say enough good about LPs Storm System fabric. Feels good, looks good, sheds rain. Well, it did back when we still got rain in Milwaukee.

I speak from experience: those are dangerous, dangerous shoes, but they make you feel like a total badass. It's a trade off, I guess.

I will be bummed if i hit less than 50 stores. If anyone could offer up any spots not to miss out on, please, please PM as id like to have a little something to go on rather than just running through every thrift I can find in plano, dallas proper and Ft. worth. Also, if any of you fine gentlemen would like to meet up during the week, or over the weekend to hit some thrifts or just grab a bite and a drink let me know, as Id like to finally meet up with some fellow thrifters. Get at me.

 

Have you used this site, yet, JP?

Stacy Adams Shoes...junk, I know. But, I bought these on the off-hand chance they were Croc...handmade in Spain. Fake or real? I am assuming fake, but I have been wrong before...

Thinned down my haul a lot today and came out with just a few things. Lots of the stuff I just didn't need or have room/money for(Recent HF trousers and dress shirts, BB mainline stuff, etc).

Followed Acosbysweater and Spoo's advice and went back for the CDG stuff. Louboutins were still there but had a $40 price tag on them. Paid up for these two pieces as well, but I felt better about it because the jacket looks to have never been worn and the shoes look like they were worn once or twice. Paid $30 for the jacket and $20 for the shoes.

Don't get too excited guys, as the CDG stuff is womens.

Comme des Garcons pleated jacket





Comme des Garcons shoes





Oxxford navy blazer. Honeycomb weave. 44 R(currently unavailable)





Ties:









Anyone know anything about the Leeum tie (right)? My photos don't show it well as I can't figure the macro setting out yet, but it says it's 15% Gold. It's a really cool tie.

Also not pictured is a beige herringbone Turnbull & Asser dress shirt. Spread collar. 16. Wrinkled to death, needs to be laundered.

You haven't quite lived until you almost take a huge digger hurrying down Park Ave to catch a train in a pair of those.

Well some of the weave in that tie (the little gold circles it seems) are made with a fine wire/thread that actually contains gold... The velvet slippers I've got from Tricker's reportedly has actual gold work on it as well. Actually feels cool to the touch and firm like metal should, do the gold spots feel different?

Nuts to that. I already managed to somehow take a slide down some really steep stairs in a pair of crepe-soled Clarks, so V's are not in my future haha.
