    I was down there today too! Did you see the great Oxxford long coat they had for $70? I almost got it because I convinced myself it was vicuna but then I put it back because u couldn't find any labels aside from the main one and it was way too big for me.

    I bought a lot yesterday..

    Here are the shoes; I may post some of the other items later, if I get time. The only ones that fit me (and are N/A) are the double monks.

    Clockwiseish starting at the far left: black Florsheim wing-tips, burgundy Polo penny loafers, two-tone AE tassle loafers, brown Santoni oxfords, black Polo kilt loafer, pebbled brown franceschetti double monks, black David Eden alligator loafers, black Mezlan kilt loafers, gorgeous Crockett & Jones Ostrich loafers (bummed they don't fit; a friend tried them on and not as loud when worn as one might expect).

    [​IMG]

    Also, if anyone is willing to help me identify the maker of the black Polo kilt loafers (see spoiler), it would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    Also, found these, if any of you vintage experts want to chime in...


    vintage overalls
    [​IMG]


    green line selvedge denim
    [​IMG]

    button fly with donut buttons - this struck me as weird, it seems like almost ALL vintage overalls have zippers
    [​IMG]

    seems to be a train on the buttons.. but a weird looking train. anybody recognize this?
    [​IMG]

    bar tacked back pockets with kind of a funky shape
    [​IMG]


    I'm thinking 1940's? can't find a union tag in any of the pockets. these are a mystery to me!

    Large you say,,,,? :D


    :slayer:


    30's-40's vintage for sure. The train in the logo is very art deco. Very cool find. I'm almost positive those are made by Rail Chief.

    Also, I missed the Bruno Magli loafers in the group photo caption..

    Also, thanks to the number of folks who responded to my smoker blazer problem with tips for smoke-smell eradication. Unfortunately, nothing has worked so far, and the jackets are currently banished to the garage. Next step will be to just give dry-cleaning a shot.

    I'd trade my Leibovitz book for those LP shoes if they fit me, tho.


    Today's grabs, knowing full well DM7 killed it well beyond anything I've ever found.

    BB 346 wool / cashmere blend over coat. Not sure if this is NWOT or the guy wore it with that sleeve tag attached...no visible wear, but very dusty.

    Spoo, that looks like an old Penfield tag, is there a "made in" tag.

    No made in tag, just the wash instructions tag by the hip where it tells you to wash with a tennis shoe, which is weird.
