A friend who knows of my thrifting, and has watched my family's beagle corner a few opossum sent me this...
Hey guys, I've been quite swamped recently and haven't had time to thrift. Went out once and found a handful of small items, might post photos later. Trying to keep up with you all, but you make it difficult!

They were a little dry when I found them, but a couple applications of Renovateur followed by multiple coats of Saphir cream and wax polishes got them pretty nice.
Can any of you John Lobb or boot aficionados give me any info about these? The construction looks identical to some of Lobb's equestrian boots, except these aren't nearly as tall as those I've seen on ebay or with a google image search.
Those are , verrry nice.
So as you all know, my duties as Cuff Link King include finding tons of cuff links. Today, I found a couple that are a bit different from the norm.photos (Click to show)
Crazy! I wonder what went into the "pill" box...
Was attending an event I helped to organize at which many higher-ups would be present, so wore a tie even though it would normally be excessively dressy for my work environment. The weird pose makes the break look worse than it is, for some reason.

So day 2 of my thrifting career, a little gun shy after buying a lot of stuff I will probably have trouble flipping. I convinced my 12 year old son to come with me by bribing him with Indian food for dinner. We talked about what we were searching for beforehand, I gave him a few names to look for Hermes and Zenga to keep and Arrow, Tommy Hilfiger, Stratford to discard. He was more into it than my wife was yesterday. We searched the entire men's section, found some interesting stuff. Being trigger shy now, I settled for 3 items leaving some Florsheim zippered ankle boots (they were made in India) and 3 Zenga ties.
First Item was a pair of earrings for my sons teacher who is an Eagle's fan:
The other 2 items were a couple of ties, I grabbed them before I even knew who made them because I thought they were beautiful.
Anyone know anything about the Chanel, it is in perfect condition as far as I can see? I see a bunch of ugly Chanel's going for several hundred dollars on ebay. Is this real or just idiots overpricing them? I thought my son would choke on dinner when he looked these up on my phone. Should I send up the Spoo signal, would he deign to show up for a newbie? He did step all over my post 69999 with his super 50 suit/sc post...
