... okay, I need to be hitting the pavement whenever I get a chance. Seems like stuff's coming out. Maybe I'll stop by a Marshalls next...
Today, two stores:
Precursor-to-skeet-blanket & Vineyard Vines reds (to hold and sell in the spring, unless anyone is interested in them)
J. Crew leather jacket, recent, XXL... not sure what to do with this. Might fit more like an XL-XXL than a true XXL. Pretty nifty jacket, great shape. If anyone's interested hit me up, otherwise it'll probably go into my closet. My other jacket is a soft lambskin one, this one is more "tough leather jacket" style.
I saw a mess of shoes in mens for once... as usual, nothing worth looking at, lots of barbs stuck straight through leather... you get the drift, till WAIT WHAT?! Alden 929's. Burgundy calfskin wingtip balmorals (in the British sense!)
Yeah, they're in rough shape... no laces... but that scratch on the toe I think will look okay with enough work and polish, and the rest can be cleaned up pretty well. Soles are actually in pretty good shape, original soles & heels. First Alden-branded shoes I've seen in Columbus... and they're 12D. Because they're on the Aberdeen, they fit me.
The interesting thing is, the very first Aldens I ever found were 928's - this same exact shoe in black, which are still in my closet. I feel like I'm hitting for the cycle! And they were only a buck 99!
