You guys are talking about the wrong shoes.

 

Check out the brown laceups...

 

They're Audrey Santonis (a completely handmade line of santoni).  Definitively nicer than any berluti, lobbs, or green's i've found.

I found these single monk shoes yesterday. Can anyone help ID them? There's a faint impression of what appears to be a crown in the heel cup, and I can make out a few letters here and there. Apologies for the bad pics, they're from my phone. Someday I'll get a macro lens for my SLR...

 Fair enough... Next time I'll photoshop your avatar in to cover up my mangled feet (mangled from running, nothing more). cheers.gif

Something crazy happened on the last day of the year...

Kindly excuse the spiritual spin but thats how we roll... Also, this is the closest I got to thrifting anything....

All through the latter part of the last year Oct-Dec I was led to give away my MTM suits...

I gave over half away to aquaintances mostly young guys who needed clothes, I kept giving until it was down to a dangerously low number.

I just felt I was making space for a new wardrobe and trusted God. Well, on the last day of the year I was @ my office and the phone rang and it was my senior partner, he wanted some info and as we talked I remembered a store that he knew the owners. I told him they had some gear I needed, but their prices... Could he drop a word for me.. So as to secure a discount. He said, "what! Go over there pick-up what you want. Tell them I sent you". I go there and try stuff on and end up with 3 suits and 5 shirts.

Now dig, its not any suits. 2 by Takizawa Shigeru and 1, Tom Ford, 5 shirts (3 Emmet, 2 Duchamp).

Give a little!!

Not anymore. Thrift stores are now loaded with dudes that know their brands.

It used to be a know-nothing kid out of college would go right past the Charvet and grab the Grant Thomas. That doesn't happen now. Finds are much rarer than they used to be. We see serious hauls being posted here, but not many are reporting on the times they go out and find nothing. And a lot of what is being posted is dime a dozen stuff anyway.

If you look at the insane # of posts this thread gets, it adds up. It used to be a handful of us in here, naku, antirabbit, jinda, etc. So many more are hitting these stores now.

I hardly thrift anymore because the prices have gone to hell, and its a waste of 2 hours to troll around and almost get 1 shirt but didnt because of yellow pits, which was probably passed on by 8 dudes before me.

Found a good SC, but it needs a LOT of help! I've already sent a PM to JefferyD, asking if it can be reworked (though it will never be top of the line again). D:

Corneliani (yes, I know the sleeves are too long, etc - this coat is a project; if I cannot get it to fit me, perhaps it can be made to work for someone else):



It has, apparently, been deconstructed (if such is the proper term). The lining has been removed, and it is canvassed no longer!:



Closer:



Sleeve:

Tag:



Found a gray Samuelsohn jacket:



Sleeve:



Tag:



Also found a Mani jacket. I'll not bother with additional pics of this, since SF doesn't like Armani's diffusions (I love all but A/X and Armani Jeans), but I do and such is what matters to me:

Sounds like when I had my BMW (Sans Spaghetti).....your flux capacitor needs replaced....that will be $1,000. Every time I start getting the urge to look at getting a BMW again....I remember the maintenance bills.

You said it better than I did. Last item of clothes I bought was a long sleeve J Crew box weave to chop firewood in. Wait, I did score a Marinella that same day, but that was a total outlier to the trend.

Not that the guy (based on how he was dressed) was any threat to me, but at the Sally yesterday, I was rummaging through the jackets when this little man comes up on the other side and begins looking at the clothes (more like he was just moving the hangers to the side, not actually looking at anything). He was muttering to himself - just saying the names of designers he knew. It went something like this:

MAN: Gonna get me a Gucci suit. Gucci. Gucci. Louis Vuitton. L-V suit. Dior. Armani. Gucci. Fendi.

I looked up at him and said Luigi Borrelli.

MAN: Huh?

ME: Luigi Borrelli

MAN: Yeah!

ME: Kiton, Brioni, Tom Ford.

MAN: I love me some Tom Ford

He continued for a few moments, then, he spoke to me again. He was talking really fast, so what he said didn't make much sense, but it went something like,

MAN: My daddy said you ain't gonna get no job at the bank wearing jeans. You need a suit. He say you gotta look professional and you can't in jeans. Gonna get me a suit!

I didn't notice whether he bought anything, but he wasn't dressed like anyone who knew what they were doing (that is, his button-up shirt was easily two sizes too big).

He was... In his late thirties or early forties by the look of him. Oddish.

This coat was a strange acquisition. Apparently, in Atlanta, if you try to touch the racks of clothing coming to the floor you get yelled at by surly employees. In my area, if you don't get to the racks as they come out, you won't get anything. So a guy comes up and says he's been following her and makes a one-sided decision that if he doesn't want it, I can have it, and just grabs it. He ended up handing it over, though. Sorry if it was one of you here, but that shit would not fly at the stores I frequent. Anyway, I gave it to my dad but if someone wants it, he might be convinced with a trade.
