Once I deciphered Sparrow's message, I found out I agree with him. lol8[1].gif

I might need you to translate for me. Still trying to figure that message out.

Had a few decent finds this week, not too much worth posting (RG, JPress OCBD, etc.) but a couple of shoes stood out a bit:

 

The first mostly just for being random... AE Nassau Sharkskin oxfords:

Not gonna speak too much to the styling but these things feel like they are basically bulletproof...
 

 

Royal Tweed Church's cap toes that were barely worn and high for thrift prices but ended up getting them for me anyways because they were so mint.  After trying them on again, they really are a bit too tight so to the bay they will go:

The store had 4-5 of these but all expensive and none this nice of condition
 
 
 

 

Lastly, was running down a bit on thrifting this past couple of weeks and starting to see too few new things at my typical shops so thinking about a break but decided on a whim to hit up a new GW a decent ways out of my way.  Took a peek in the case (in my experiences these are usually complete busts) on my way back to the men's section and saw a nice looking pair of Chelsea boots along with some Cole Haans.  Decided if I find anything else in the store I'd ask to see them while I check out.

 

 

Ended up finding a Barney's by Samuelsohn sport coat with Loro Piana fabric that I was probably gonna grab but saw the line was about 15 people deep and I was already running late so went back to leave the jacket and bounce.  I couldn't shake the thought of those boots though and found an associate on my way back and asked them if they could open the case for me.

 

Saw this first... good sign

 

 

then...

Obviously couldn't get in the line soon enough.

 

 

 

 

 

 
They are the Tudor model from the Prestige Collection - no luck on the shoe trees though.  Really nice condition with not too much wear - better than the pics show.  Needless to say, pretty happy I asked to see them.

Ah. I seem to remember googling Nick and Bergdorf Goodman, and Wooster came up since apparently he used to be their fashion director. The tie itself ain't bad though, and it's staple-ey enough to be useful. Looking at sold items, these may not be entirely worthless either. Some get decent money, some don't.

Congrats on the Lobbs!

 

I ran across a pair of those Church's/Royal Tweed last week, unfortunately not in my size, and more unfortunately beat to hell so I had to leave them.

I've been sitting here watching all this craziness for the last couple of days. I have been on the fence about jumping in and just saying well done. Finally yesterday I said to myself "if someone finds a pair of Lobbs tomorrow I'll go ahead and comment", not expecting it to happen. But congratulations, thrift thread, you blew my mind. WELL FREAKING DONE!!!! "Killing it" doesn't even BEGIN to describe it. I want to thrift sooooo bad right now. No joy though. However, I am interviewing for a job at Brooks Brothers tomorrow, so that should be interesting. Anyway, happy Columbus Day, and keep up the incredible work fellow thrift-gents.
