I also want to say, before I joined this fantastic community and started soaking in it's infinite wisdom, my only pair of "dress shoes" was a pair of BB suede bucs. Warning, lots of pictures in the spoiler.

Tu. Mescent.

Another poor soul who hasn't seen The Wire. (Although the early half of HOC is mad good.)

*This side of Dexter. Ah, fair enough. Well okay; crime isn't a big focus, but Treme also has that setting driving, environment focus style that David Simon is so excellent at. I guess I'm just becoming jaded towards character driven work, and forget about plot.

So, after 3 years of thrifting diligently in this stinking desert, I found my first Kiton.  Turns out it is NWT Kiton from Saks.  Unfortunately, it has paisleys on it... which probably explains why it still has tags on it.

 

 

Also found a couple more nice Charvet ties.

 

 

 

And a nice Cashmere Pringle sweater.

I don't think I've ever said this on here, but I seriously turned to my wife and said, "That's that guy from StyleForum."

Been having excellent luck thrifting on eBay lately. This stack includes Bottega Veneta, Sulka w/ 14ct gold corners, and Swaine Adeney & Brigg w/ 9ct gold corners. Less than $10/each with shipping included. smile.gif

I don't troll ebay enough to find the $10 Lobbs some of you find, but this one qualifies in my book.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/221319614011?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Great colors? Check. Great quality (implied; I've handled this vintage LB ties and they're pretty good)? Check. Great texture and materials? Check. Right length and width? Check. Under a Jackson shipped? Yep, sign me up.
