    ... that's pretty good, but I don't think there's quite enough Patagonia.

    Found a few choice pair of woven dress shoes in excellent condition. They have a mold smell to them. Any tricks to getting that smell to go away?

    Trench coat, very wrinkled, a couple mouth holes the size of a pencil eraser. Passed after waffling on if a bit... Should I go back?

    I know it's not really your taste, but is there much CM out there at all? Or is that just not really worn?

    Fill them with cheap coffee beans for a day or two, then the cheap kiwi leather lotion works well for me.

    Anyone familiar with Heschung Shoes? I've found them on Mr. Porter, seem to be French and feature Norwegian welts prominently. Anyone attest to their quality? I took a flyer on a nearly new pair for $25.

    I find very little decent menswear. Most of the suits I find are 80s western style. In this area, pretty much no one wears suits daily. Maybe more so in Denver, but not from what I've seen. The culture is just massively different here than in other metro areas out east.

    Good pickup at $25 I'd say if they are in good nick - particularly for personal use.

    Any advice on telling real exotics from stamped? This belt had no labels whatsoever. Passed on it because the buckle seemed cheap, so I assumed the leather wasn't legit either:

    Guess I should have kopped. Though I'm sure it was overpriced (thanks Savers!) which made me not want to take the risk.
