I can't tell by that photo, but I remember your other photo and they looked like croc. Now, whether they're actually croc or not, I'll admit that I'm not an expert. I own a couple of pairs, but nothing in black.
By the way, thank you for posting in a manner that makes it easy to quote/remove unnecessary information
thank you sir. There are some numbers inside the shoe, so I thought maybe I'd be able to consult a chart like you guys do to see if a shoe is shell cordovan, but I don't know if there's a J&M chart or an exotic leather chart.post #62749 of 1387282/10/13 at 4:20pmQuote:Originally Posted by HansderHund
I don't think this was exactly what I was looking for, but it will do:
I know there's some cashmere in here because of the feel test next to an actual 100% cashmere jacket I have, and they feel the same to me. The burn test won't say "blend" or "100%." But thanks for trying!post #62750 of 1387282/10/13 at 4:26pmOfficially my worst day of thrifting ever went to like 10 stores and logged tons of miles and tj Maxx and Marshall's and I found were 3 ties (only picked up the talbot because it is patchwork and i thought someone on here woulld want it...)
Also my friend picked up some varvatos mainline pants for personal consumption...post #62751 of 1387282/10/13 at 4:33pmQuote:
My pleasure! Short of using a GC-MS, it will be hard to certify something as "cashmere" without the label. If you're trying to find out for flipping, I've come to realize that a short explanation to your customers usually convinces them. I will tell someone "I can't be 100% certain that this is 100% cashmere, but based on the fact that I've felt hundreds of cashmere jackets, I'm fairly convinced that this is at least part cashmere."post #62752 of 1387282/10/13 at 4:35pmQuote:
I can't help you there, but those look like either 'gator or croc.post #62753 of 1387282/10/13 at 5:08pmQuote:Originally Posted by FaceOfBoh

I hit 2 places yesterday, and because I was pressed for time, never got to spend the time I normally like to spend. Still, I think I made out pretty good.
Boss wool/cashmere SC, heading for consignment. Still had a dry cleaning tag on it dated 2010.
I currently have a few Pendleton items up on ebay that are getting some interest. So I thought I'd take a chance on another one. This is a wool (woven, not knit) cardigan.
Aran sweater, S or XS. Probably a women's.
True vintage shawl collar wool cardigan with mechanic's style neck. I put this probably late-1950s to early-1960s. Made in Canada and no CA number nor any French to be seen on the tag so definitely pre-mid-1970s.
Burberry Brit knit cardigan/jacket with zipper and buttons. Not a bad piece but a little ostentatious with the buttons and the epaulets.
Not one but two Gloveralls in classic camel.
Prada monk straps. Rubber soles, but I'm sure will have no problem moving on ebay. I'm not sure why this picture is so small...
A bit outside my comfort zone but I got some help from mjt73106 when I was in the field yesterday. Vasque hiking boots, Made in Italy, in 7 1/2.
These have been popping up all over the place, recently.Quote:Originally Posted by Orgetorix
Thrift fit with one of the RLPL suits I posted a couple weeks ago. Jacket is a touch snug.

That's a great fit, as usual.Quote:Originally Posted by Ian Erickson

Did that VV tie cost you $7, too?post #62754 of 1387282/10/13 at 5:10pmpost #62755 of 1387282/10/13 at 5:23pm
Hey Polo gurus. Any idea who made the US made polo suits and such in the beginning? I never even realized the Polo label went back that far until I found this yesterday.
Saw Spoo had one a month ago or so....except without the insane lapels. Fully Canvassed, Pick Stitched, Dual Vent.post #62756 of 1387282/10/13 at 5:58pmQuote:That's gorgeous!Originally Posted by FaceOfBoh

Orvis sweater vest with leather pocket trim Large
Orvis vest XL
Camp 7 vest Medium
Garrick Anderson shirt 15.5-34
Anyone heard of Broletto? I've never seen this type of Loro Piana Fabric. 42S, basting still intact,
Paul Stuart 39 Long- It's a project, but it was $1. If anyone wants, hit me up.
H&M- I know, but I think it fits well, I'll have to take pics, but it's a 42 and looks like it will be sweet action come summer time.

You should be able to find them in a crafts store. If you don't have a crafts store nearby, you can also find them on Ebay or Amazon . I bought a Dritz branded one (search for Dritz Snag Nab-It).post #62760 of 1387282/10/13 at 7:55pm
