Also, found this on Ebay but wary of it being fake since it ships from Tel Aviv...If real, it's a good price for NWT...I'm just not sure...confused.gif

(Love the prices and sales here)
Other shoes are (obviously) low top bean boots which have been on my to cop list for a couple years plus they were 50% off the already reasonable price in this store


Can i get a date on these? I remember there was a big discussion on a pair eazy got a while back...
Also for the first time I passed on a pair of Alden's frown.gif they were shell and everything but were cracking and the soles were shot. the Alden logo and size info was worn off, it was tragic

Is there a tag on the inside of those Bean boots?

Correct, one of the oldest. I think it was used for quite awhile though, maybe 1970s into 1980s.

I find even the Made in USA Burberry London shirts do quite well if they have the novacheck pattern on the inner collar, placket, or cuffs though....

 

I don't even know what to say about the PRL jacket.....sweet icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif!!(although I could never pull it off.......)

The other sign i read about is a little thread on the inside of the tie which should be visible if you gently fold the bottom open. But i am not an expert, just a couple of hours investigating ties after i found several at a spot last week.

The thread is a good indicator, but it sometimes gets pulled inside of the tie , sometimes you can only see the knot end of it.....

Agree with CeasarC on this, I've found one or two of the woven ties  (which I think are rarer, but not necessarily more desirable to some people).

Here's some info:

http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?81022-Maine-Hunting-Shoe-vs-Bean-Boot

I think the consensus is, the low-top hunting shoe changed names in the 1990s, so that should be some help. I have a pair and love them. Much better than my newer ones with rawhide laces that won't stay tied, no matter how long you soak them in water and let them dry. I hate rawhide laces.

My lady stopped at a couple thrift stores after work. I've trained her pretty well.

Edward Green for Bullock & Jones. They're in kinda rough shape, but good enough to kop for $12

Mezlan deerskin cap toes, I have like 4 other pairs of these things too in various sizes.

A few Zegnerz, one NWT that will just be returned.

The two Makers and Merchants are dope.

Just RT but I sell them for like $15-30 in decent patterns, so $2.99 is fab.

 

And these I've had for a while, but they are my favorite shoes I've ever found. Too bad they're too big for my little guy feet. Mezlan deerskin spectators. They're an ivory or cream color instead of the usual bright white I've seen and they look way less costumey.

You're going to try to return a used twenty year-old tie for cash because the original owner never removed the tag hidden inside?

Just the one farthest on the right. Newest Zegna label and still has a Nordstrom return label. I don't return things that have the label still glued underneath the fold that are almost impossible to remove.
