Ties mentioned before. Charvet, TA, BB, NWT BB

 

Worth noting this is my first Charvet and T&A. I'm excited.

Dear, Thrifting, I can't quit you. You are my drug of choice.

Challenge failed.

Didn't find what I was looking for at Marshall's, but did pick up a skeet tie.

Buying a house helped me. I don't think I've been to a thrift store in more than a week. :crazy:

I bought a house last year then decided I hated to mow/edge/blow the lawn, so I got the kid next door to do it for $20 a week...which meant I had to thrift in order to earn at least $80 a month to pay him for my laziness.  Then the kid got into an accident on the set of The Walking Dead last week and won't be mowing my yard at least the rest of this year.  One less reason to thrift now - will probably go back to doing the yard myself for a while.

First, T&A cherry popped.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Second, I have skipped, skimmed and ignored every single pair of Florsheims that have been posted here since the day I started reading SF. I have left every single pair I have seen in thrifts - mostly because they were beat to shit. Gentlemen, now I need your assistance. I'm pretty sure these are shell. They're not V-cleats, but I suspect the original owner had the heel replaced. What exactly I do have on my hands?

Found this crazy Etro shirt. double button collar and super thick buttons. Not pictured are some Ferragamo cap toes that need to be cleaned up.

^^^^ Those are indeed Shell cordovan. 93605 number indicates shell on this pair. Heels replaced.

HA! I got you beat by 2 months and 3 weeks!

post #79541 of 113045
Here are some highlights from the last two weeks:

Brooks Brothers awesome tweed 43R


Southwick recent staple grey suit. 42L, i think (need to measure)


Another awesome staple Southwick, brown flannel 38S
The BB and the brown Southwick are on eBay, and the grey is eBay bound... If you're interested I'm sure we could work something out.
Not pictured:
Ties: Zegna, LV, RT BOC, PRL Madras, Beau Brummell 7 fold, BB, PS London, Barney's made in Italy, Versace.
Shirts: EZ 16.5 button down collar, BB White French cuff, Robert Talbott 100% linen cutaway collar (M)
Pants: Brioni Wool and Cashmere solid grey flannel, tagged a 42R and I think they mean 42, not 32.
Sport coats: the above mentioned BB, Canali X4 (three 50R, one 42 solid navy), two awesome vintage (1967, same donor) cotton summer sport coats for me, nothing special brandwise, EZ charcoal Birdseye orphan that I might turn into an SC for me.
Suits: Gianluca Isaia 48R, Corneliani grey stripe 42R, H Freeman and Son three piece 40R, the two Southwicks, and my first ever Savile Row: Henry Poole seersucker. Probably about a 70L. The largest thing I've ever seen. It was 5$ on the costume rack... I had to rescue it. I had to. *sigh*
