Couple recent custom D/B suits that fit me like a glove. Made by a local high-end clothier who used to be a member on here.

I remember Marty. He did the most amazing store window displays. Is he still in business?

My sister just sent me this picture. Anyone know the age of this label? I found on AAAC that this model existed in 1967 but couldn't find much else.

Check out issuu.com. Search for Allen Edmonds. They have all the back issue catalogs. If you can get the four digit model number you can cross reference which years it was made. Should be prior to 1983 with that logo style.

Off the top of my head.

Heading out through Des Moines, Lawrence and Wichita this weekend on a rock band playing some out of town shows trip. Gonna keep an eye out for middle America's best hidden thrift stores.

Good luck in Lawrence, I live there and if you're lucky you can prolly nab a few things. A few weeks ago, I nabbed a BB Golden Fleece in black from the Goodwill, fits like a glove, and a pair of Florsheim penny loafers that were a tad too small. Also quite a few nice shirts. There are a couple of places downtown on Massachusetts that are more "hipster" then anything but you might get lucky and snag something nice.

No creepers or super skinny trousers, but I did get this bad boy:

 

 

Just needs the body taken in slightly. Really pumped to wear this when NYC isn't an oven.

Ah! I wasn't trying to be a dick. Your comment made me laugh really hard. I enjoy the good-natured humor of this thread. So different than most forums.

 

Also, if anyone DOES thrift creepers, I'm a US 8.5-9 teacha.gif

The pair I have are TUK (found on sale) and they're comfortable, but awful quality. Hoping to find some Underground or George Cox at some point.

Nothing to do with Marty but...

HOW COOL IS THIS???

Some VERY interesting pictures accompany the speech. I included a link.

What follows is (more or less) the text of a speech delivered at a convention of wedding planners. I was asked to discuss "What the well dressed groom is wearing." Well, not exactly. The invitation was actually not specific at all. So I figured a polite harangue might be most useful. If any of you find this post "Tutee-esque," and thus derivative, I would take that as the highest form of praise.
