Some things I found last weekend:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Charvet diamond pattern and Faberge elephant stripes.  The Charvet is the first I found in the classic diamond pattern.  It's also only 3-1/4", I've only found 3-1/2" - 3-3/4" ones before.  The Faberge is a first (I had seen some before, but this is the first one I picked up)

 

 

 

 

(As usual, the shoes only have some conditioner applied, no polish.)

Church's Custom Grade black medallion captoe balmorals (UK 9.5, on hold for someone else, but let me know if you're interested, and I'll get back to you if they don't fit the person)

Ferragamo brown medallion captoe bluchers (9.5D, also on hold for someone else, but let me know if you're interested, and I'll get back to you if they don't fit the person); it seems like these have an insole fitted, so they are probably smaller than labeled.

A pair of brown Tod's driving loafers (pretty worn, one has a hole through the sole, 9.5D, available)--picked them up because I've never seen Tod's before:

 

 

Two Ferragamo Studio (I know, not great construction, but the leather seems to be of good quality; plus I liked the shoes):

 

Black plaintoe single monkstraps (9.5D, available)

 

 

Black wholecut loafers(9.5D, available)--my favorite from the lot, in great condition as well

 

 

Two pairs of boots (found them around the holidays, but forgot to take pictures last week):

Jeffery West made by Cheaney's tan boots (UK 8, available--wanted to make these work, but they are just a tad large, well-made, but definitely loud boots)

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Frye suede boots--can't figure out the size on these, they fit me when I remove the insoles, but with insoles they are too tight.  Or are these women's boots that somehow ended up in men's?

 

 

 

Also, something I found a while back and I've been meaning to ask about it:

 

A women's wallet.  It looks like nothing special, except it seems quite old.  The inserts (I don't know what you call these things, placeholder credit cards?) have expiration dates on them of 30 and 31 (presumably 1930 and 1931), so I almost believe that it's from the 1920's or 1930's, except it seems like new.  Any thoughts?

The typeface styling on that tag looks too modern, IMO. If it really was that old, it'd be capitalized. 50s-70s, I'd say.

 

As for me, Paul Stuart dinner jacket, $35. Shawl lapel. Center vent though- gotta get that sewn up.

GUYS look what else I found at the consignment store! The RLPLs are my size, not available. Both have some condition issues, but they're fixable or live-with-able. I talked the store down to $28 per on account of the issues. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Chester Barrie for RLPL, black or dark gray w/stripes. The top of the waistband looks like it got eaten by a vacuum cleaner or something. It's really odd and definitely not moth damage, but it'll be mostly invisible when I have a belt on.

IMG_1517.jpg


St. Andrews for RLPL, single-breasted peak lapel, side adjusters on the pants. If this thing had a vest it'd be my grail suit. There's a single moth hole in the chest, but my reweaver can take care of that easy.

IMG_1518.jpg


Corneliani for PRL made in Italy. Slightly too big for me, sadly.

Nice finds! The wallet is definitely not as old as you think. I'd say 50's-70's. Diners Club was the first credit card and it came about in the very early 50's. Those numbers on the ends are the month and day as back then they went by month. So 4/30 meant it expired April 30th.

Those fonts look early 70's to me.

DAMN! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Nice Haul man. $28 a piece...I would stalk that consignment store daily...hourly....XD

post #61209 of 110158

Cool, thanks, guys.  Yeah, the typeface reminded me of 50s/60s movies, but I'm obviously not an expert in this.  I didn't know that credit cards didn't even come out until the 50s.

And, wow.  Any RLPL is nice, but the St. Andrews seems amazing.

Wow, 2 RLPL from one store?! That's awesome! I think the St. Andrews is a bit nicer as well. For a consignment store, they sure didn't know what they had! The owner should of sold them on eBay! Oh well, their lost is your gain! Good stuff!

Yeah, I've actually seen metal cards with hole punches around the edges (early form of a credit card, not an actual charge card, though).

Not really thrift related but it's kind of fun to see how things have changed. Here's an old Donaldsons dept store card I had laying around compared to a current credit-card style. They're grown quite a bit! The Donaldsons card is from the very early 70's if I remember right.

The back of the card states: "Always use your credit card when shopping - it will identify you, speed your purchase and insure accuracy." laugh.gif

Wow, Simply amaze. these are my grail find, in my size.
