Not in Austria yet, unfortunately, but there is one about 3 1/2 hours away in southern Germany that I've been to a couple of times. The German site doesn't yet sell anything online, they just have style guides, but the British one does have a few pairs of Maison Martin Margielas online. They're £199 each:

They also have a good number of Loakes for £79.99.

Left two vintage brown label North Face Gortex parkas at $25 per, will check for them next week when they should be half price

Presuming no flaws, you should go back and get those parkas now--if they are still there.

Thrifting here in the Rust Belt is a depressing affair, weeks of flipping through acres of Cherokee and St. John's Bay in the hopes of finding one item to be proud of. I usually find noteworthy finds every couple of months. Anyway, at my local Saver's today, I spotted this pair of kind of cool looking monks on the shelf:



But wait, what's this?



wow.gifwow.gifwow.gifwow.gifwow.gifwow.gif

But what's the price?

I seriously almost shat myself in the middle of the store. The bad part is that they are about one size too big. And the condition is not great:

Not sure what I'm going to do with them, so hold off on any PMs for the moment. Just wanted to share my victory with those similarly situated. Persistence pays off.

The number of Lobbs that have appeared on this thread just in the past few months is insane.

 

Mindblowing get.  If they're near a 12D, I'm sure I can help you decide what to do with them.  mwink[1].gif

You could look into their recrafting service and get those puppies looking out-of-the-box fresh for the Bay or B&S. Since I've never looked into their recrafting service, I have no idea what that would entail, but it might be worth looking into.

Great find!

Maybe we should call that moment the "Lobb shit": the almost-bowel-movement brought on by the introduction of so much awesomeness into your personal space.

But seriously, congrats! Even with the less-than-stellar condition, that's a find to gloat over.
The liner and soles look in good shape. I'll bet some TLC would do the uppers a world of good. Some of the crazing may be from old polish.

picked up a pair of gucci loafers in pretty good condition and a pair of D&G croc (i think) shoes with ruined soles

I am in wrong part of country for finding Lobbs, best shoes finds for me in CA have been Gaziano Girling and JM Weston. Both these shoe brands are way lower end than Lobbs.

I am jealous - I want to find me some Lobbs.....

Only place I ever found Lobbs was a GW in Little Rock AR, sarcasm.gif .

Good finding though ACE, awesome icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I got the roadster for $79, the turtleneck for $79 and the button-down for $59, IIRC. Sweaters were 100% cashmere, shirt was like 85/15 I think.

If any of you Marshalls hounds see a Rag & Bone Philips Blazer sz 44 in black,brown or blue GET AT ME for proxy purposes. I tried one one at my Marshalls and it was dreamy. However, it was an earthtone, which I can't wear. I think they wanted $100 for it.

Thanks for the tip, if the jackets are still there tomorrow I'll pick them up. Last month I thrifted this relatively recent North Face down jacket in a dull metallic blue color and I have already gotten much use out of it.

Maybe they are Bill Clinton's shoes!

They are an English 8E, so I think that translates into a 9D US. There were also a pair of loafers by Tanino Crisci, looked pretty much unworn. I wasnt familiar with the brand, but they were obviously high quality. Anyone know anyhing about them?
