Felt sad leaving that jacket behind but I couldn't find anything about the brand. Crazy made in England tweed hunting jacket with elbow patches, neck latch, and the Chest pad for the gun stock.

I sold one last week. You must need a brush up on searching ebay competed listings

I only found one jacket in that brand!

Left the loakes too. They were probably as close to immaculate as possible for used shoes.

Might come grab both over lunch.

Edit: nope, I found a few of them. Some Harris tweed ones sold for 50, but it looks like what I had was a good find even at that price. Definitely coming back over lunch.

On that note does anyone want a pair of the size 10 loakes when I go back tomorrow?
If they're still there.

I've lost some weight and am looking for smaller trousers. Tben came through with a nice selection. Top to bottom: Bill's, Orvis, Orvis, Faconnable (look to be Incotex) and a great BB Merino/cashmere cable knit sweater. Thanks Tben!!!

If I wasn't currently looking for closet space to house my current 7 tweeds, I would totally ask for the proxy.

SeaJen: glad you liked!

Thrift blues: found an awesome Belvest db suit in Super 150s wool. Found 3 moth holes in the pants, and there were probably more I hadn't discovered.

It's not the brand, it's the style. Look up tweed hunting coat. You passed on $$$. Well, maybe just $$. But still worthwhile.
post #88029 of 115979
Yeah. Hope it's still there tomorrow. Crossing my fingers. I might go back when they open lol. I carried out around the store for an hour trying to decide. I thought I had something awesome...

What about the loakes? I'd get them on condition alone, but they're just the $150 lower tier shoes. Goodyear welted though.

Edit: TonyL: Congrats on the weight loss.
In related news, I found something you lost. Happy to return it because believe me, I don't need it.

FTFY

WHY WOULD YOU LEAVE LOAKE?
I mean, they're not Grenson or EG or anything, but those are really good shoes. At least AE quality, which should have been obvious from the construction.
This is what Spoo was talking about.
And that jacket -- SOMEONE on here wanted that badass motherf--. I'm not talking about Ebay dollars. Forget all that noise for a second. Someone HERE would have traded you cool stuff your size for that. Almost certainly.

Now, in fairness, you may have faced the dilemma I've often faced -- cool stuff that's overpriced. That's a much harder cost-benefit analysis to weigh. But if those were standard thrift prices, you should have kopped and then asked what else they had in the back.

Teachable moment over.

Stopped by a spot today and they had two pair of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes in the glass cabinet - 12 E - okay, but some scuffs - not paying $40.  I politely decline and she says "Did you see the 30 other pair I just put out from the same donor?"  Oh.. my...  Zelli, Moreschi, Gucci, Mezlan, etc...  Most of them were ostrich, but a few were croc or alligator.

 

Picked up two pair - Zelli Crocodile and an unmarked custom made horned back alligator from Italy.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Unmarked Alligator - they had several other in croc or ostrich.

 

 

Zelli Croc -

 

 

Hoping for a half-off shoes day in the near future.. :)

I think we sometimes need to step back and put things in perspective, that $20 hunting tweed for instance.  $20 at a theft shop for a coat is a tad bit high, but really thats the price of a junky Old Navy for Polo for christs sake
