    Not a lot today. Three of the stores I visited were closed for the Easter weekend, so I was pretty limited.

    Prada pants, my size. Keeping for now.

    This is actually one of those souvenir sqaures (not a scarf). I never buy them, but I loved the colors of this one. Machine stitched and no content, but almost certainly linen or a linen/cotton blend.

    Finally made some finds today when the lady and I were out in the suburbs getting some things done. Everything is available.

    Hickey Freeman made in Italy wingtips. 7D (not sure how a size 7 does but they were cheap)

    Hickey Freeman suit 42S (this is somewhat recent label yes?)

    Vintage Bemidji Woolen Mills coat. 46.

    Gant Rugger The Woolster flannel. L (thanks DeadBoy) Size tag is cut off but looks unworn. Sadly a little too big for me.

    I thought the lick test was the best way to tell. Didn't the thread come to a consensus that was the most accurate? [​IMG]

    ilikelights I have that exact Gant Rugger Woolster shirt. It's great for cool weather days. Mine is a large... if you PM me the P2P I can tell you what size it is.

    Horrible, no one wants size 7. What 10 year old kid wears nice shoes like that anyway. We have big landfills here in NJ so you can just send them to me to dispose of for you.

    Thanks man! Sort of a dress down day at work, I was obviously still overdressed with no tie requirement, but I think the tie brings it together.
    Still in town I see?? [​IMG]

    Awesome! I also spy badges from 3 cars I have owned in the past (Ford Mavrick, Plymouth Duster and the long forgotten Mercury Bobcat which was their version of the Pinto).
    I'd say pass. Worth maybe $30-$50. The one's you're looking for will look crazy with tons of knobs or gauges. Like this: [​IMG] One find today. Red Wing Ansi Z41 steel toe Logger boots. Black. 9D. Vibram soles. First pair of Red Wing boots I've ever come across that didn't look like they've been to hell and back 3 times. The soles show very little wear. Available [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What I like is that there are some local dealers badges plus one from Carroll Motors Durango (Co). There are probably more on the other sides.

    Saw my first Golden Fleece out there, but it was an odd, heavy wool, ancient suit (2 buttons on the sleeve). Just left it, along with a Pal Zileri I toyed with buying but there was a big mothhole. Been a while since anything interesting.
