Too narrow for me but here is an eBay find one of you might want...

 

12AAA. Listing is mismarked for size AND I think they are AE Shell Longwings...

 

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=181093243103&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

 

You're welcome.


Edit: looks like they have seen some wear (didn't notice resole job)

My best finds for flipping today? 

 

Timberland Denim Jacket with Widespread Panic tour embroidery logo from 1997. I liked it was made in the USA, leather collar and from one of my fav groups. Since it fits I will wear for a while. Supposedly never for sale and only given to band members and the traveling tour crew which is 100 of them or less. 

 

 

 

Super sewing machines, nothing like vintage machines. First one is made in Japan by a subsidiary of Toyota second in Italy.Anyone ever sew here?

Pics from today's haul.  First some backstory - I had no intentions of going thrifting today.  The plan was to photograph auctions, prep listings, and try to get through the pile of inventory that has buried my drafting table.  The wife says we should go out for a bit, as we're expecting a big bill for repairing a damaged macbook.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

First up Allen Edmonds Graysons.  They appear barely worn, just have some thrift filth on them to clean off.  These came from my last stop of the day.

 

 

At our first stop, I'm not even looking at shoes.  I've picked up some really nice slacks and dress shirts at this shop, but the shoes are always crazy overpriced.  My wife doesn't realize this, picks up a couple of pair, and asks my opinion.  First some Brooks Brothers made in England.   Definitely seen some wear, but serviceable.  Any idea who the maker is?

 

 

 

And then there were these.  Kim remembered me saying something about a "John Lobb" and thought she should grab them.  Nearly shat myself right there.  Again, these have definitely seen some wear, but at an investment of $7.20 plus sales tax, how could I say no?

 

 

 

 

 

Several Paul Stuart polos for myself.  Made in China, but they all have MOP buttons and feel pretty well constructed.

 

 

Nice Facconable Polo.

 

 

First Dunhill anything I've ever seen, oldest Brooks Brothers tie I've come across (self tipped, made in England) and a pretty cool Polo madras.

 

 

 

Bills Khakis and hands down the oldest Incotex I've ever seen.

 

 

Polo made in Italy by Corneliani 100% Flax, Paul Stuart.

 

 

Orvis for myself, flat front Zanellas.

 

 

First Trafalgar belt I've found at a decent price.

 

 

Couple of Brooks Brothers casual belts.

 

 

Oh, and right after we get back the Apple store calls to say they managed to fix the computer after all, free of charge.  Win!

 

And to think, I didn't even want to go thrifting today!

This. They're a textile mill. One of Italy's better ones. Not elite tier, but very good.

On another note, picked up a fucking mint HF Flight Coat, are these all cashmere? It's a hell of a lot softer than the HF cashmere in my personal collection. Sadly, not my size. ffffuuuu.gif I also picked up a sexy ass Oxxford pure cashmere summer weight sport coat in a hounds tooth plaid with patch pockets, fit like a glove but has a couple of moth nibbles. Does anybody have the link to the re-weaver that was posted a couple week ago handy? And a LL Bean navy Norwegion sweater. No pictures at the moment as my camera is broken, but I'm going to see if my wife will at least take pics of the Flight coat with her Iphone in the morning.

This is who Orgetorix recommended. I've also used them with great results. Someone on the West Coast also suggested Alex's Reweaving. http://www.yelp.com/biz/alexs-reweaving-los-angeles

Awesome! Thanks guys, for the quick response. I've never had anything rewoven before, but this is such a nice piece, and totally "me" that I think I going to try and save it. nod[1].gif Hopefully I can post some pics tomorrow.

So, I'm in the market for a new camera. I think I'm over the whole point and shoot type. Does anybody have any recommendations? I'll mostly be using it to for normal stuff, but would also like a good macro setting for taking pictures for ebay and a tumbler I've got in the pipeline.

I am into the Tom Ford for men at the moment. I think this new Chanel fragrance is pretty nice though!

I am also quite keen on Polo blue for some reason.

First attempt at shinning shoes. A little water and a lot of brushing. I think they turned out great.

Crappy phone pic.
