I tried to play with the images to see if I could improve the readability and did somewhat. There is a partial name and part of a logo that I've traced. 

 

Seems that the model is "The Grenadine" or "Grenadier". 

 

If anyone recognizes the logo, let me know.

Not one near me, but yikes: Half-off two weeks before Halloween sounds like a CF. The local thrifts are getting spooky with costume shoppers, even at full price. I always worry that I'll see some high school kid snag The Perfect tartan jacket or Prince Albert slippers or Open Road hat and there won't be a damn thing I can do about it...

Yes!. Thank you. 

 

I just found the logo on http://vintagehaberdashers.com and was coming back to post "never mind"  I just kills me not to be able to find something.  Now I have zero idea if they were decent shoes in their day but these have held up surprisingly well.

Does that synergize with this?

Thought this was pretty cool with regards to the painting I picked up on Saturday.

BW made solid shoes--I suspect that's the consensus. My only complaint is that the leather seems a tad plasticky, but nothing like, say, Dexter. Minimal flip value, but they will flip. Better, though, to keep them for personal use if they fit.

Last week there was a group of teenagers who got to the coat rack before me and one of them took a really nice looking overcoat that was 5 sizes too big for him and wore it around the store. It killed me that I couldn't check what it was.

Sunday was much better than Saturday.

 

Most of these are from yesterday. A couple are things I've been sitting on for a few weeks.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Two vests for me:

 

BB Sweater:

 

Barbera:

 

Ties (L to R - Stefano Ricci (in Halloween section for $0.99), Ted Baker, Hickey Freeman, Barbera, Tiffany Collection)

 

Here's a close-up of the Ricci tag. Is this recent? Can't say I've seen this label.

 

 

BB Royal Stewart Scarf:

 

H by Hudson:

 

D&G Pin Strip Orphan Pants (any reason to think these aren't legit?)

 

PRL Reversible Down Puffer Vest:

 

BB Corduroy Jacket:

 

Vietnam-era(?) Peacoat (any help on info?)

 

Diesel that I actually kind of like:

 

PRL Military-Style Wool Coat:

 

LL Bean that I wish was a medium

 

is this a thing?

 

 

And the reason I hate Unique. Awesome Bemidji Woolen Mills coat that fit me great, but marked waaaay too high:

D&g real I think

"Did Tommy show you my painting? Look at this."

 

"I like this one. One dog goes one way and the other dog goes the other way. And this guy's saying, 'Whaddaya want from me?'"

My first thought as well. Never gets old.

I don't really know too much about the Valentino hierarchy, but this is the good stuff, right? Appears to be unworn, made in Italy, Shawl collar, single button, besom pockets still basted shut, unvented with flat front trousers. Pretty much everything you'd want from a tux.......in my size!!!!!! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif $12 N/A, came on the original hanger.
