A few weeks ago you may recall seeing the tremendous Alden Indy shell boots that Matty Long Legs picked up based on me seeing them in a thrift shop and passing along a tip.
[As an aside some wondered how I could just leave them there. The answer is (a) I knew they were nice but didn't know quite *how* nice until I got home and looked on ebay. My knowledge level isn't as high as it could be, (b) they weren't at your typical $10 or less thrift price, although they still were crazy cheap, (c) they didn't fit me so it would have to be a flip and (d) I'm really busy with work and don't do much or any selling anymore-- my day job pays much better than that].
So anyway, a few days ago a package arrives from Matty Long Legs. Didn't ask for it, he just decided to send something over. Cut to:
Sweet Ferragamo horsebit loafers, and a pair of (new) Pantherella socks.
And a cool Peter Blair tie made for my College.
And also a sweet Zegna tie that I'll have to thrift fit pic on a different occasion.
