I cant make the insole numbers out on the Florsheim Royal Imperial tassel loafers, but do the rolls in the leather and the lack of fine creases say shell to the experts here?Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I vote shells.
Ahh, I glossed over the large size. The button stance is really that low, even though it's dated 2002?? Hmm. It's your call, but I think I'd probably still grab at least the suit. Assuming that's a European size 60 (50 US...if not, then clearly this belonged to Andre the Giant, not any of the mere mortals in your picture), it may take awhile to move, but it's too good to pass up.
Also, the blue orphan jacket sounds like it was a suit at some point in the store and the pants just got separated, since it was priced at $45 while the birdseye was only $6. If you decide to get the Poole tux, I'd probably check over the store for the pants to complete the blue suit.
Yeah, all 3 jackets look like they were made in the 80s until I looked at the make tag. I was a bit surprised to see they were recently made. I will bring my tape measure next time I'm there. Hmmmm, maybe the birdseye was a SC that's why they listed as $6? Nahhhh, they just fucked up! lol I think if they are there next time, I'll at least pick up one...
Wow! This thread is on fire lately. Hermes Lambskin overcoats, people passing up recent Henry Poole but finding recent Charvet pocket squares inside, Dark Matter renting U-Hauls for his finds and John Lobbs?!?! Insane!
Paid up a bit for my finds, but still way cheaper than in the US or on Self Edge.
