Noted. I'm glad I'm not looking for mid century furniture at the moment because he is dominating those pieces. That being said pulled a few pairs of shoes the other day and popped 3 cherries...

Has anyone (Hans??) heard of Rover and Lakes? I found a nice leather jacket in my size...





I also picked up a pair of Ecco shoes and a Coach belt for myself.

+1...I don't own any Dobbs, but they are well regarded, especially as Cesar noted, the older stuff. I haven't really looked into dating them, but a wild guess would be a bit newer on yours. Again, I don't have the knowledge of those, but it's a guess.

As far as Rover and Lakes is concerned, I've never heard of them...possibly a German house label? They turn up on eBay, watches, shirts, jackets, but don't go for a lot. Sorry I can't help!

The link is dead for me..... but have you not seen any of his posts here on SF?

Thrift gods cruel -- not only did they send Messrs. Fezza and Perry Ellis after me last night...but

ooh!
AppleMark

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
slightly frayed -- but frayed nonetheless -- collars and cuffs ffffuuuu.gif

and then me first mabitex!

AppleMark

half effing polyester.

I did manage to find a j press tux shirt perfectly measured to my size.

Justifying, therefore, putting together a tux from thrift stores!

My tux shirt has no buttons. Need a recommendation: Who has the studs?
1) One of you? PM.
2) Do you ever see them at thrift stores (I never looked, although when I was accumulating cufflinks by the dozen pairs...never saw them)?
3) I see some on eBay and I bet if I hit the Rack they'd have some...

Another dumb question: Must the cufflinks match the studs or can you have generically black onyx or whatever studs and fancy cufflinks?

You can match or not....it's up to you. At least try to match the metals, silver links/silver studs. I'd go for black onyx studs and some sort of low-key silver cufflinks. If it's your only pair or you don't wear black tie often, simpler is better.

Is anyone here a fan of the truly loud animal print? The VV style where it's so fine that it's practically just a geometric I can get on board with, but the other... Passed yesterday on a BB Makers tie of monkeys/gorillas lifting weights, very strange.

perfect new england office outfit, ha. you'd fit in at my place of work, makin the j crew/A&F/Dockers crowd look silly but fitting in fine

Isn't it weird here how we have 2 sets of shoes in this climate? The Beaters on my list (because I not only do the snow-slush thing but I have to have good arch support etc for walking long trade show days sometimes tromping through rain a mile or two from hotel -- which often is deliberate because I like to get extra exercise in, not complaining) are 3pr clearance FLorsheim "2010 imperials" I bought new (outlet, coupon sauce on top) and Topy'd. I also have some rubber soled AEs I thrifted, too.

I save the "good stuff" for better days.
