Picked up these Hanover loafers today. Love me some shell. Black, 11.5D. Available (but prolly hitting eBay soon):

 

 

Also grabbed a couple nice brandy snifters. Can never have enough of those.

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...

Paid up a bit for my finds, but still way cheaper than in the US or on Self Edge.

Came across a pair of Paul Stuart corduroys and 2 pairs of canali pants that were too beat up to resell, and had to leave behind a pair of zanella trousers in great shape because they only accepted cash. I shan't repeat this rookie mistake, and will return tomorrow. I told the cashier I was going to return later today, and asked if I should just put the pants back, hoping they'd hold them for me. He barely looked up from whatever smut he browsing on some old, dust covered desktop and muttered a yes. I put them back alright, I put them back real good.

i think that's only 2-3 years old. i tried on a coat like that and it was so sweet i almost bought it ... think the list was in the neighborhood of $2,000. the fact that i would even momentarily think about buying a coat that cost that much is a testament to how sweet it really is.

202 is an Edward Green last.

EG did make for Nordies back when. I think the 80's, though correct me if I'm wrong. They also made some shoes for Cole Haan and I THINK Tom James - someone in this thread has a pair like that, though the name is escaping me at the moment.

The 202 last there is pretty conclusive that those are the EG's made for Nordies.

Finding one of these "off brand" EG's is one of my dream thrift finds. Hell, any EG at all is still a grail for me - thrifted or not! Congrats!

Ughhhh. Barrel, I told you to get them ALL, including the Hogg haha. On the button stance, given how fat that guy in the pic is, wouldn't a high button stance make his gut look even worse? Im trying to vizualize it.
