+1 on Via del Governo Vecchio. Bought a nice hat for myself a few years back and was similarly amazed by the variety of Barbours on offer. Follow your nose - the smell of old wax will lead you to the right shop. Most of what's on offer on the street, though, is similar to what you might find in a vintage shop in the US - 70s fashions, denim jackets, etc.

There's also a pretty good lunch place on that street - maybe Corallo? Get the carbonara. (5 minutes after we were seated it filled up with models from a nearby studio. In Rome, the models eat pasta.)

in my experience, italians love barbour like americans love armani (same demographic, same reasons).

I still would have picked them up, but DAMN they're ugly as sin.

Not the ugliest thing in a kilt, but probably a close second

Stopped in at the local thrift during lunch break today.

Didn't want to leave empty handed so I grabbed this white cotton shirt. (Available)

those are some unattractive loafers.

I found a pair of Florsheim Royal Imperial scotchgrain PTBs in 9 E, which have pictures and are available in my B&S thread.


I also found a pair of FRI burgundy cordovan longwings, which are a present for my Dad because I love him and his ugly size 12 feet. Those are currently getting a rubber heel lift added so he doesn't slip and die.

EDIT: If you want to see the pictures in this thread then sure!

I should have the shell longwings back on the 26th for some more pics.







On today's trip I found a very cool pendleton flannel that fit perfectly. It's a nice brown/tan with red and blue accents.

It was raining Brioni today. Best part was that there were two volume flippers going through the racks filling carts right in front of me blowing right by all of this.

Two shirts + tie





Paul Stuart tie



Most exciting find of the day though was this - NWT RRL jacket from Spring/Summer1996!!!. Only downside is a pen mark on the sleeve otherwise awesome jacket with an interesting design.



post #57837 of 112293
Just imagine the pen mark is supposed to be there, like those $300 RRL mechanic's duck pants with oil and grease everywhere.

Just picked up a recent mint condition one-button peak lapel PRL tux for $55 on eBay bigstar[1].gif

My first Versace find. Brag worthy? Flip worthy? Legit? Size 34 available



post #57840 of 112293

Had some nice finds the last couple of days.

 

Popped my Brioni cherry with this silk shirt.  It has a couple crusty stains near the buttons, going to try to take them out.  Any suggestions?  From what i read cold water and some vinegar??
