Ditto. Love the look of vintage longwings, but I'd much rather spend the $20 on a reheel than take a spill. Not real clear on the appeal of the v-cleat...

I bought a pair of shoes from the bay and I put one on to see how the fit was. Walked onto my hardwood floors with one shoe on and on my first step I slip and my shoeless foot slams against a corner completely destroying my nail on my big toe. ffffuuuu.gif Needless to say, I now put on both shoes to determine fit. lol8[1].gif

Well, it does make the heel rather indestructible, and it sounds cool tapping on the floor. But yeah, I'm with ya. Get a vibram heel on those suckers.

^^ Great deal. For what it's worth, I wear a large normally and have an XL Cucinelli that fits me (though I did have the sides and sleeves taken in). That XXL might work for an XL.

Gentlemen, thank you. Always great information on this thread... along with a great spirit of sharing.

Sew them back on and continue to wear them!

Stumbled upon two RLBL suits, need to let out the hip area by a 1/2 an inch or so and the waist. Hope these are the real deal so I can tailor & dry clean them to use as beaters. Anyone know if these are legit? Made a thread with more photos here.

just so we're on the same page. in one 24-hour period, you found that LP unstructured jacket AND this pair of RLBL suits?

Whyred leather jacket

 

Beretta safari jacket

 

Semi-ugly Asolo hiking boots, but good for going to the store in when it's wet/snowy outside i guess

 

Some bags, bottom one from The Bridge

 

And my most expensive purchase from a "normal" thriftstore, from the swedish SA. It cost like 95$, but i really wanted it...Thrift prices in sweden are very high though, a burberry trench usually go for between 150-200$, sometimes more
