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.

tl;dr: "I've got this place locked down."

Saw this before it got deleted...pretty hilarious, I didn't mind the tone, he's just calling it like he sees it. If he's leaving Gucci, zegna and Cheaney shoes in my size as his scraps, I'm more than happy to collect.

A few recent pick ups...it's been light on the sartorial search so making up for it with outdoor gear. Both SC are a 40r in my size so NA for now as I decide which to keep.

Canali grey windowpane 3bn, dual vent sc


BB Golden Fleece custom tailored in 2010 2bn, dual vent, working cuffs



Canali ss polo shirts marked 54 so 44us or L


A couple of cotton Japanese pocket squares NA


Patagonia gear
Clockwise from top right: r1 pullover NA, synch vest NA, grid regulator fleece zip L, vintage snap t L NA, NOS retro x from '99 L


For the ladies
Clockwise from top left: lululemon scuba hoodie sz6, lulu scuba hoodie sz8, lulu lace up hoodie M, north face down vest XS, arcteryx wind shirt pullover XL (44" chest so may keep for the slopes as it fits...)


Finally a week behind deadboy but picked up my own Schott perfecto leather jacket in great vintage condition sz40 and fits but definitely not my style

Just picked up what I'm pretty sure is a piece of luggage made out of elephant. Dated 1926, with the OG key! I've never handled the stuff before so if anybody can confirm or deny this, I'd be really grateful.

Edit: It was also made in my hometown. nod[1].gif

For whatever reason I was perusing sig links and came across Fueco's blog. Totally recommended. Unlike most blogs, this one's both well-written and informative — from carbon dating Harris Tweed labels to why Pendleton shirts are a joy to the psychology of why we thrift, et. al. Entirely worthy of a permanent bookmark imho.

 

 Thanks, man. Does that mean I need to start posting more there?

 

 The next piece might be on the Dobbs hat, as I dig up more information...

post #60839 of 102619

Wes didn't chime in, who I would ask, but it seems like sort of a small grain for elephant if that makes sense? It reminds me of some shoes I snagged awhile ago that I think we decided were water buffalo. However, it does loook like elephant too.

Edit: bout to post a haul, although after Ray's im sort of embarrassed :(. I passed on some Borsalino PANTS two days ago, would this be the borsalino of hat making fame/worth anything? If this was a stupid pass I can tell one of our DFW residents where to find them.

Stopped before a meeting today and made a couple quick scores. This sweet Nile crocodile
belt made in S. Africa really caught my eye. I don't know anything about leather but I couldn't let it go. It's rather large at 46". If anyone know anything about it let me know!
