    Need a little help deciding whether or not it is worth reconditioning/resoling these old Florsheims. Not sure why the burgundy is so dark, but some lengthy work-over with Lexol has produced little/no results.

    Thoughts??

    :embar: I just checked and it seems that I have put my PO box in by habit and completely forgot that I did it. I was going to get my business mail tomorrow but had a hint that I should go sooner. I found a note from the Post Office stating that they have a package too large for the box waiting for me. They open at 8 AM. Guess where I'll be at 7:59.

    Awesome, glad you rescued it!

    Slow day today.


    MN-DOT workers must have all called in sick today. Roads were an absolute nightmare and didn't see one single state or city plow the whole day. Ugh. Counted 15+ cars in the ditch and two spun out cars right in the middle of the highway clogging it up. Barely worth the headache getting out today.

    Bespoke Whitcomb & Shaftsebury blue spread collar dress shirt. Has a small bit of wear on the collar, but this thing is loaded with handwork and the damage is barely noticeable. Mismatched collar button. Still, couldn't bear to leave it. Slim 16 x 35 Available at cost + shipping

    You should volunteer to be a depot. (but I bet the ratio of crap to keepers is about 1:10,000).

    Are NWOB Allen Edmonds worth kopping for 50bucks a pop? They are rare sizes like 14B and such...

    Shoe related, how well regarded are Silvano Lattanzi?

    Wife went out thrifting for my personal use and her store. Aside from the Pendleton is there anything potentially OK for Ebay?

    Nothing spectacular this weekend. Found a nice Pendleton button-down for ME!

    Also got, because of the name an Armani .......is there a market for something like this? This is pre 1990.

    Got some AE Sanford Shoes. Appear to be in great shape. The white dots are from I guess a disinfectant or something this thrift store uses. Soles good too!

    Pass on the AEs. In a decent color, style and size that would be a good price. In those sizes at that price, no way.

    Silvano Lattanzi is a grail maker, IMO. Super expensive at retail and very well made. They make Lobbs at retail look like a bargain.

    Would any of you have taken a chance on a pair of Loro Piana cotton trousers in dark brown...with piss/sweat stains on the lining?
    Theyre machine washable and I thought about for a split second but I havent had much luck with getting rid of stains lately and $8 seemed a little steep to take a chance.

    What do you guys think?

    Oh, and these were actually straight from Loro Piana, not Zanellas or anything like that.

    Asking because I got a message from a friend over in the East coast who found quite a few of them and is offering a proxy. He usually sells on eBay but he is willing to cut me a proxy for one pair at $300. They are 2nd hand lightly worn shoes. I feel somewhat hesitant at spending that kind of dime on second hand shoes but if they are that good (Lobbs level or above) it may be worth a risk. Trouble is none of the shoes have sizes and my friend thinks they are in a 11 - 12 ballpark which is a pretty big dynamic range. Big risk of not fitting but if I have resale potential at least getting my money back, I may just pop at them.
