Woke up to find my favorite, and only, BBGF Double Breasted suit moth riddled. Checked my almost cedar filled closet to find no other markings at all on any of my other garments...so far (knock on wood). How is everyone else day going so far?? ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif

I realize that thrift shops and vintage stores are usually overflowing with Florsheim longwings, but I rarely find anything in my size (11EEE).  I have been hemming and hawing over whether or not to strip the leather and re-finish.  I'm going to have them re-soled anyway, but something about the rough, color and the years of history in them that I find appealing.  I happen to think the rough look goes well with jeans also.  

 

Can I retain some of that "age" if I have them cleaned up a bit? Thoughts?

The GR boots are made in China and the soles aren't stitched but I REALLY liked how they looked on my feet and at least they are real leather uppers. I didn't mention it earlier but there's also a pair of black Chelsea by the same maker that I could probably make work with some of the black pants that I have to wear for my job as well.

Sure, they'd fall apart if I wore them daily but I rarely wear the same shoes more than once a week so I'll die before they do and if they do blow up, I'm out ten bucks per pair. So what?

Also, Man of Lint will kick my a$$ on the No Purchase Club thread but ... I'm weak.

What would you do?

 

If you like them, they fit and they fill a hole, buy them, especially at or close to thrift prices. Ten dollars is not a huge investment.

Anyone heard of John McAfee. Are these church's (heels replaced)? Hard to tell the size, so if any of you guys have eyes better than me. Available, assuming we figure out the size.

Those are Alan McAfee, not John. I believe Cheaney is the maker, but could be wrong.

 

Also a little iffy on what that black stuff on the inside is...

Thrifted this a while ago just because it was pretty badass, but it ended up sitting in my closet for months (and needed altered) so I decided to list it today. I think this is the 4th or 5th time I've picked up one of the crappier RL lines just because it was a nice looking piece and it always paid off. Fetched $80 about an hour after listing it lol8[1].gif

What is the point of posting a comment about the pointlessness of not posting what a particular item was purchased for? What is the point of anything. Why do I have a penis. If a narwhale and a pony have sex, what happens? A unicorn? How is calamari made? If Ted Cruz died in a forest, would anyone care?

The point, I think:
Go down this road too far, brother
You'll never be able to come back.

The prices just aren't that interesting to hear about—unless maybe they are unusually low ($2 for a Kiton suit). Most of the time, it's understood that the prices are within the usual thrift shop ranges ($10–$30 for a suit, $5–$20 for a jacket, etc.)

I buy 44L stuff from members here all the time...if the price is right of course.

Christ's sake, look at thatbutton hole!

It's purdy, no?  I have a hard time wearing my Men's Wearhouse coats after wearing this.

I highly recommend keeping it. If it fits like you say then you wont come across something like that again in a long time. I havent found a sport coat or suit that I did not need to tailor. There is plenty of ebay fodder to be had out there.

As mentioned, current label and I would 110% keep that if it fits.... They are NICE suits!! What are you going to do with the money you sell that one for, buy 5 Men's Warehouse suits which you won't be happy with?

Yeah, I hate the escalation. I was happy with J C Penny's, then oohhhh look at all the cool stuff at Men's Wearhouse, now I'm wearing a $1000 sport coat and fear there is no turning back. My official reason for thrifting is to make my net purchases for clothes $0, so I buy and sell, then I can go to the men's store and get what I want. I started making halfway decent $, now my goal is to make the entire family's clothing purchases net 0. This would go a long way to reaching that goal. Maybe I will hold onto it for a while and sell it when it is no longer a novelty, or I find another.
