^ Nat, the thought of you and anything Polo scares me, to be honest.

Hi,

 

If anyone finds any full brogues or LWB's in a 6UK/7US in a wide sizing pls PM as I struggle finding a good shoe in my size. Any shade of brown or a burgundy is my preferred colour, thanks!

P.S.

PM if willing to ship to Australia as that's where I am.

 

Thanks :)

Nat,

That's a pretty sweet pickup. The handle looks pretty short in the photo, is it longer than it appears?

Ok, so I had no idea it would be half off day at both Goodwill and ARC stores.  They were both madhouses, but I found enough to inspire me to wait in lines going halfway to the back of the store.

 

Lets start with the basics.

 

Harris Tweed for Lands End.  Cool.

A really nicely patterned SC.  Yes, it's unvented but it fits sooooo well.  Good content too.

A very vintage suede stadium jacket in my size.  Any idea on the maker from the crest on the size tag?

Just your average minty fresh Ermenegildo Zegna flannel shirt.

 

 

700

 

A couple ties.  The Charvet has some tiny pulls that I could probably knock off with a razor.

 

 

700

 

 

Some oldish Allen Edmonds boots.  I regrettably had to pass on a pair of some very well made side zip All Saints boots  as they were a size too large and the sole was coming apart.  A shame.

HEFTY Rochester shoe trees...

 

700

 

Now lets get to the juicier stuff.

 

Here's a pile of trousers.  In the mix we have Incotex, Zanella (yes, there are unicorns), Ralph Lauren (cursive) blue label, Paul Smith London, OG Dockers K-1 Cramerton Twill and Bill's.  The Zanella 5 pocket model is unhemmed, probably only tried on.  See the spoiler for more deets.

Barbour and John Smedley sweaters.  The Barbour is 85% wool, 15% cashmere and has a few minor holes.  

 

 

700

 

Paul Smith London Westbourn, perhaps an orphan.  The content tag was cut out, but I believe it's the same as in the trousers posted above.

This one's definitely an orphan, but I wonder if you can order the matching trousers from Brooks Brothers.  This also has the tag that's in the Paul Smith London trousers.  Any confirmation on the manufacturer?

And....I'm sad to say that the greatest find of the day is.....

SKEEET

Blanket.  NWT.  Next to a Mastai Ferretti shirt that I'm going to try to rock next spring.

Now cue DM7 rolling in with a truckload of NWT Boglioli unstructured sport coats.

Someone make my day or break my heart, how likely am I to find pants that will work with an orphaned corneliani tuxedo jacket?

Weird. Couple of months ago, I found one and figured I'd be the superhero. Wasn't cheap, but I was sure she'd mentioned wanting one. the reception I received was significantly less heroic than expected, Granted, we'd just dropped all our money on a house, but I figured it was worth it.

Yup, probably. I have one too that Ill be listing soon.
And I was going to offer to double his money. . . . lol8[1].gif
Yeah, srsly, dude, folks here can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think anything LP branded (not just fabric; branded) is an instakop.
post #53079 of 114872
^ Yes, anything LP branded is instakop.

I thought Id mention, not me, but a consignor sent me my first skeet blankets! Very excited to list these. Should I put "skeet blanket" in the title to help drive traffic? lol8[1].gif

Depends on how OCD you are. smile.gif If you are low on the scale, then not a problem at all.

After someone necro'ed this thread and reading it, scares me now. I didn't know people bothered faking items like LP.

Makes me sad that they always sell at or above BIN but I don't even get a nibble on any of the nice shirts I have listed.
