Yeah, with black corners. Pretty freaking awesome, scoured the store for something like this. Tom Ford was few and far between.

What size are the strap Aldens?

Found these the other day:

I'm pretty sure these are Grenson, right?

I'm kind of torn, they're my size, but really not my style.

Mainy, what's the size of those black Aldens?

 

Also, do you guys know about the Thrift Store Runway contest? Just saw it linked from AAF... I feel like, with all the items and knowledge, some folks here could destroy this thing.

Yes, Grenson.

My advice,...make them your style! Those are sweet.

Oh, another question on tie brands...Sartori ties: Good/bad/mediocre? Saw one today with a fine diamond pattern, thought at first it was a charvet, it felt like it, not quite as soft but really nice. Are they low-end italian brand or good stuff?
post #44099 of 118145

A few ties today:

 

1000

 

 

 

The BB is NWT and the Ben Silvers are both firsts for me.  The yellow is a 6 or 7 fold...not really sure how to differentiate.

 

Also found these old Wolverines that might clean up nicely:

 

1000

 

 

And a pair of fairly recent Seavees.

These exact ones.

SEAVEES 09/63 PANTONE® PLIMSOLL

 

700

They're Goodyear welted and completely leather lined so I'd put the construction up there with the best of them.
If anyone knows anything about the Bally "Wings", I'd love to hear more about them. Also, they are, sadly, at 12 M just a bit too snug for my 12.5/13s and therefore, available.

Oh, and along with them, two pair of NWT Footjoy golf socks and a pair of NWT Levis 505s.

Wow! I've been after a pair of "Beatle Boots" for years! Wish they were a size or so smaller!

More pedestrian finds:

Penfield-Know nothing about this Size Large
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Nice find! Penfield was a outdoorsy line from the late 70's to mid 80's (think North Face, Alpine Designs, etc except as far as I know, they only did clothing) that was recently revived with a more streetwearish vibe. I've been eyeing a few of their down jackets but am skeptical of their quality since they've been revived. Must be decent stuff though as retail isn't exactly cheap.


Great finds of the rest of the lot as well!

Mainy: Wow, crazy Haul! Also, Kiton Jeans!?! Not my style, but pretty cool!
