Are there any good places online to find great deals on clothes and shoes?
Sorry for the noob question, I figured this would be the place to ask.

J/k welcome to the club fistbump.gif As far as GOOD ones, can't really say yet. The ones I've been to occasionally have something decent, but usually a lot of junk to sift through. Persistence is the key.

 

Slow your role...

By the way...what is going on around here? Why is everyone so sensitive.

^^ Could be related to the inevitable yearly reunion with the in laws looming in the not-so-distant future (tomorrow).

It would be nice if I actually published such a sought-after book. That's just the end-product of Randy's Photoshop handywork.

I could have sworn I picked up a copy of that book though last time I was in the Cities.

Yeah, I'm looking at it now... Has a page titled "Best Stores in St. Paul", and gives the directions "Get on the I-94 E. Drive 257 miles"
Did you write that?
post #54860 of 102897
Haha, seriously? Wow. Nah, wasn't me but I sure hope there aren't any thrift/discount stores mentioned in there. devil.gif

Oh these are absolutely insane. Now that I'm home and got a better look at them and tried them on, they blow my Sugar Canes out of the water. The fly buttons actually have the finger print lines pressed into them from the guy pressing them on. Hand hammered rivets. Denim pockets. Etc.

Once Concealed check those guys and make sure they are still there, maybe we can do a thriftthread group buy.

Those are amazing denim.

The directions I gave will take you to Wisconsin. The Board of Tourism guide recommend "charming shops and boutiques" along Hennepin, and other consignment/antique shops. Unless you are making the hunnits selling 30 year old women's clothing, I think you are safe!
post #54863 of 102897
Haha, yeah. There are some decent shops right on the boarder that I don't get to very often. Yeah, sounds like it's guiding you right into the hipster district. laugh.gif

Saw a Rag & Bone Hand Tailored sportcoat at Nordstrom Rack yesterday. Gray flannel, made by Martin Greenfield. Passed because it was around $100. Is that sort of thing desirable?
post #54866 of 102897
^^ Definitely. I'd go back for it asap if it was wasn't really big.
post #54867 of 102897

Hit up the good Marshall's that I know of in OC. They had 2 of those tweed PRL coats that were posted here the other day, I think they were 46R and 44L. Thoughts raced through my head of getting both and Voltron-ing them into something that'd fit me. Then I snapped out of it (must find some good big guy tweed this fall). 0 panther socks to be had there. They did, however, have some Billy Reid ties for $29 a piece, one of which is still calling my name...  Thrifts have been shitty lately, but that's ok, I need to sell everything here anyway.

 

Also excuse the shit picture but...Is this too busy? (I know, I know, wear a blue solid, but this Zegna is nice!) Wish the V wasn't so deep.

 

Also... Found this great rotating napkin/book/dvd holder. Proxy anyone? uhoh.gif

Thats super cool about the buttons showing the finger print... I think I might have to get some denim from them, and denim pockets too... I don't even know if I've seen that before.  

 

Why couldn't you be really skinny, or short, or something so you didnt fit them :P

Got them back from the cleaners today, fit pic below. I also received my Secret Santa Thriftmas present from LooknGr8, a grip of ties to go along with a vintage BB DB blazer and topcoat. Thanks man, you rock!!!!!
So, since I snagged these J press trousers from 1966, I thought I'd mate them with this J Press tweed sack jacket that I picked up last year, but have yet to wear, as I think the sleeves need to be let down a smidgen. I've also been itching to try out this Allen Flusser made in Scotland fair isle sweater, pared with my go-to BB non lined collar OCBD, Lands End green,silk knit tie, and AE Dalton's. Sorry for the disheveled sweater/shirt/tie appearance, I threw this outfit on in a hurry. Now, back to work with me. cloud.gif





 

 

Missed this post earlier today, glad they worked out! Looks like they were made just for you, great fit pic icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.
