    Is that the most normal looking skeet rag ever produced? It looks better to me than the Eton shirt (is that blasphemy?)...

    I hit 2 places today and didn't find volume but I think I'm in the money with this motorcycle jacket. It's not a Schott but it's beat up good and had tons of character and something else going for it...

    Plus, two France-themed books. Martin Walker's Bruno series is one of my favourites and I highly recommend it.

    I read "A Year in the Merde" a coupe of years ago...an easy read, though the author doesn't seem to be a pro. Keep it for a long flight, you'll chuckle at a few parts.

    Me too! I went what seemed like a few months without anything, than Paul Stuart by Grenson, Peal & Co by C&J and Nettleton whole-cuts all in the same week. And of course the vintage LL Bean Polo's from Wes. We'll call those a thrift assist. :fonz:

    BTW, LOTS of nice shooze up there fellas! Keep up the good work!.

    P.S, anybody here a 43L and want a badass summer weight BB gun-check SC with triple patch pockets? If so, hit me up and I'll go see if it's there tomorrow. It was really cool and now I'm kind of regretting not snagging it.

    Only had time to hit a few places today.

    Tie for me. I have another HF tie I bought recently and it's quickly becoming one of my favorites. I like the construction and width.

    Corneliani tie w/ matching square. The square had no price tag so they threw it in with the tie. Edit: might keep, not sold on it yet but I'm contemplating. Possibly available in the near future.

    eBay if nobody here wants it. 2.75" width.

    How good do these flip (non-shell)? I saw a pair of these and left them, but they'll be there tomorrow.

    Couple of nice finds (at least for me) from Marshall's since they all fit well and are things I can actually use

    Zegna Made in Italy charcoal pants:

    [​IMG]


    Barrett suede chukkas for Wilkes Bashford- not sure where they got the "Compare to $275" price point... seems low but who knows I like them a lot:

    On my stupid iPhone so can't quote BUT how small were this Astor and Blacks?? No pants? Digging the shawl lapel one if it would fit. 10 other styles you say?

    Good condition opera pumps are hard to find so I'd always pick them up on the cheap. Enough guys on styleforum and in the thread would prob want them.


    Oh yea..... [​IMG] buy these when you see them in size 36S.... RALPH LAUREN Solid Navy Blue Blazer Brass Buttons Sport Coat Jacket Mens US 36S


    And two nice Sulka Ties - Always had good luck with these on ebay.

    Excuse my ignorance...I'm no Vintage shoe expert by any means, but I think these are a pretty good pickup...am I right?

    I haven't posted in a bit as I haven't had a chance to get out much and haven't picked up much bragworthy, but I hit it hard this morning (especially after seeing shoeluv pulling stuff from my neighborhood).

    Had a pretty decent day:
    Some ties:
    [​IMG]
    BB vintage cotton, good Lanvin and 2x Zegna

    Uniqlo selvedge 33x32
    [​IMG]

    Nice JPress summer blazer. 1/4 lined, white buttons, not sure on the fabric...21.5 or so p2p
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And then I found this. WTF. Staple Caruso Navy suit in nice condition. Had a Klobber moment after I picked this up when a guy in the next aisle over let one rip audibly. Tagged EU 52, FF pants are 35 x 31 or so. About 21.75 ptp.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Picked these up a while ago and never posted but with the warmer weather approaching thought someone might be interested in some Sulka linen pants 34 x about 31. Double pleated.
    [​IMG]

    And I wish these were EazyE's size. JPress FU and the horse you rode in on pants. Tagged 40 x about 32.
    [​IMG]

    All available to thread regulars except maybe the ties.

    Cheers,
    O
