So I hit up a few stores after the snow yesterday.
Picked up a 90/10 cotton/cashmere RLPL shirt and Brioni shirt for myself which I dropped at the cleaners, and then I found these:



French Shriner Centurion shell cordovan PTBs. Couldn't find anything online about the age.
No size clearly marked, but the interior reads 385 635139 E 7, so maybe a 7E, but they seem bigger.
Doesn't seem to be #8 with age, but more brown/mahogany.
Available for trade, and any info appreciated.

Thanks,
O

Do they seem like an 8? UK 7 = US 8 (or there abouts). Learned that with a pair of JM Weston shoes in a 7.5, WAY WAY too big for me.

 

Did pick up these two ties which are available for trade.

GMMcL, this is all from the same store we hit, goes to show how variable a store can be on a week by week basis.

 

Records: 4 Elton John from the mind 70's, Sounds of Silence, Third Jackson 5 Album (pumped)  and yes that is George Bushes autobiography, my parents would be so confused if they saw me reading this.

 

NWT Ibex pullover, MSRP 150$

 

 

Pretty badass..

Even more badass.

Jack Victor 100% cashmere, wish it was my size. Is a 40R

 

 

 

Hickey Freeman Boardroom SC, dont think its an orphan. 40R 

 

 

Here is my favorite...Bespoke?

 Windowpane

Cheers to that...when you make it home, I'd love to see some more pics of those Lobbs. I'd also like to see DanMs and hope neither are close to my size.

Edited to add: Good to see you in this thread again, you've been sparse here for the past week or so icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Shop just got turned out by four of us at the same time. Prices went up overnight, but so did the quality. Small time haul for me, bigger for the other guys. Get your popcorn poppers heated up.

Looks perfectly fine to me if you're going for that professor/academic look. I really like the tie more than anything.

Having said that, if you're not comfortable in it, everyone else will be able to tell.

NWT Loro Piana 100% cashmere tie...Can a tailor remove the thread/airplane without damaging the tie? It's such a nice fucking tie, but I don't really want that stupid plane on the tip...





PS Shawl Tux jacket - no pants but figure it will still sell easily on the bay

Spencer Hart shirt, my size:

 

Bleeding madras tie made for a local men's store:

 

 

 

100% cashmere overcoat in my size.  It's a little beat up and nothing fancy (Club Room), but I didn't have a navy overcoat.  I think it's worth the $10 I paid for it:

 

 

 

 

weird stuff (Click to show)

 

Saw "Savile Row" and MOP buttons, so I picked this up.  (Was only $3)

 

Then I noticed this.  What's with the armpits?  

 

Anybody interested in this?  I'm a thin guy, but this was cut too slim even for me.  I haven't measured it, but it's somewhere in the neighborhood of 16x36.  French cuffs.  Also it's monogrammed on the left side of the chest.  lol8[1].gif

 

 

 

This tie.  Whoa.  The brand is Edsor Kronen, which I gather is a fancy men's store in Berlin.  Says it's handmade.

 

 

 

 

Epic roadrunner tie.  As a New Mexican, I couldn't pass this up, even if it is stained.  

 

 

 

 

Looks old.
