Interested to hear @ if this is worth grabbing or not , I assume its not mainline Versace, but I ran into one just the other day (edit- suit, not tux),,,,price was $50 +, and ebay completed show a range from @ $50 or so to $150, so I didn't kop.....

A little more on McAllister. They were an original model in 1956 and were in the rotation until 1959 with the catalog number 4473. They came back in in 1979 with the number 6271 until 1982. They switched numbers again in '83 and stayed that way til 1997. They have not been available since '97.

Just an FYI (as you know waaay more @ AE than I do. .your knowledge is incredible worship.gif.), McAllisters are currently available on the AE website, and it says they were brought back in 2009...been itching for a pair in walnut but of course dont want to pay retail...

You are correct...thanks for the correction, I have edited my original reply to include your addition.

Seriously, Capn is the man when it comes to shoes. I dont think anyone comes close. Really glad we have such a generous knowledge base when it comes to this stuff.

I assumed that since it's a shawl collar tux there's a specific type of person who would really, really want it. If not, I'm out $10 because they were tagged separately.

I was just browsing the re-released McAllister on the interwebs and it looks like the toe box has been rounded out slightly. And $355, zoinks!!! I'll take the $10 pair please. biggrin.gif

Thanks, you are too kind. There are others with much more knowledge than me on most shoes, but I can find my way around a pair of Allen Edmonds...or Hanover shoes.

+1 (not on you being a moron, on the wife's thoughts).
I'd like to ask mine to do a thrift fit pic but she'd just roll her eyes.

Nice find on the Bathing Ape polo, they can fetch quite a good sum on Ebay especially with the Asian crowd. I was quite into it about 8 years ago.

I understand completely. My wife doesn't completely get the whole thing, but she tolerates it pretty well. I was surprised, however, when she suggested we hit some thrifts in Vienna on Monday. I think she knows I've been a bit stressed at work. smile.gif

I'm finally caught up! You guys have been tearing it up lately. Spent 4 days camping out (Saturday through Tuesday) and managed to get my daughter into Gilbert A. Montessori in Cincinnati (this received some discussion around 500-700 posts back, also known as last week). Thrifted a few Harris Tweeds, Zegna silk knit tie, vintage lands end argyle lambs wool vest, and made in Scotland cashmere sweater. Pics soon.

Congrats Dan. I heard the German School only had 70 openings for the entire school.

Picked up a sweet irish made fisherman's knit sweater. Seems like gray quality. Anyone familiar with Carraig Donn?
