I did just pick up the sweet Timberland, made in the USA, suede and leather, rucksack/tote type thing. Quality and craftsmanship are pretty outstanding. Its a shame to think they use to make their stuff with such high standards and how shoddy their product is nowadays.

I'm not sure. How well do they fit otherwise? I wear a W30 or W31, but I'd never be able to wear W33s. They're normally too big everywhere that I'd essentially have to have the pants recut. However, I'm not sure if there's as big of a difference proportionally between 33s and 35s. Basically, that's about the threshold of not being worth it/they'll look weird. If it were me, I'd keep an eye out on ebay for a pair that fits and then sell those.

I would also bet that someone here has a pair sitting around they'd be willing to throw your way.

Ok. Because of my humongous thighs I could probably have just the waist taken in and it would look ok. The length is perfect on them for my 33w 30l normal dimensions.

Things continue to improve around here.

Two really nice pair of shoes...

Grenson for Barney's Country brogues NWOB 9.5 M. Had to pay a bit for them, but they're really nice.



Lightly worn Alden monks 7.5 C/E



Coach brief case. Really nice leather and USA made.

I THINK these are Edward Green for Paul Stuart, but can anyone confirm? The soles say Made in England.

^^^^Wes, nice haul! Why you no 38????? Dexconstruct, I think the consensus is that Paul Stewart's are made by Grenson with the exception of the "limited edition", those are EG, or so I read elsewhere on the forum, sick shoes either way. 10.5's by chance? shog[1].gif

TC area Goodwills know way too much. They know so many labels that I myself wonder how they know about. Almost positive at least one of their main clothing pricers at each store is a lurker on here.

KINDA SORTA THRIFT FIT.....most like a discount fit.... thoughts?Main concern is that both are too long. Shout out to Spoo on the last one, but thinking it may be a hair too big puzzled.gif

 

So I went to buy this one....

Thanks again Spoo! Little to big though?? confused.gif

Nothing like that haul Wes got.

 

Only noteworthy item I got so far this weekend that fits me is this pair of shoes

 

 

 

 

Anyway to tell the age of these from the coding inside? Resident Florsheim guru anywhere?  

Heel has O'Sullivans imprinted. Super built shoes!
