    Who made this Vacca suit?

    Would need to post the size/content label to help determine.

    Which era is this vintage Brooks Brothers label from?

    Yes that's the union label. You can narrow down an age range based on that label. Googling some of the words on the label there should lead to some sites with guides. Brooks Brothers was excellent quality during this time, which often accounts for older guys complaining about the label's...

    Which era is this vintage Brooks Brothers label from?

    I have a made to order suit dated 1964 with that label. I think this label was also used earlier than that. If you have the garment in hand and can check the pockets for a union label that may help.

    Questions About Recently Purchased Testoni Shoes

    Someone please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the stitching inside the shoe indicates blake construction.

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    The shoe is a Delta Force, if you're curious what Nike model they are.

    Advice please: mould on leather shoe soles

    I had this happen to a few pairs during current times when many of us are wearing dress shoes less often. I used a Clorox wipe to gently wipe it away, not applying too much pressure in case it may remove the edge dressing color, etc. and being careful not to touch the uppers with the wipe. Also...

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    I remember when these first came out Kanye was photographed wearing them, so they had a really good resale value for Vans. Nice thing about Vans is that they usually clean up very well. A bit of elbow grease with an old toothbrush and you can get all the dirt off the rubber.

    Help me find this tie please

    Going to take a guess it's Tom Ford as I have a similar one. Those lapels look like they could be Tom Ford. Perhaps the whole outfit is.

    Can you tell if these are Goodyear or Blake Rapid Stitched?

    My understanding has always been Tramezza = Goodyear, Lavorazione Originale = Blake but maybe it is not safe to make that broad statement. In the few pairs I have, that does hold true. Closely inspect the shoes and try to find the seam where the welt and sole meet. Here is a photo of 2 pairs of...

    Renovateur or Venetian SC for Alligator?

    Appears ostrich and the leather looks like peccary.

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    Haven't posted in quite awhile, hoping everyone is well. Thought this one was post worthy: Saw this a week ago for $700 and went back hoping it would have an extra clearance mark-down. It was marked down A LOT more. Don't understand how that happened, but it's mine, and that's all that matters.

    Ferragammo shoes

    Certainly not constructed the same as a Tramezza. Tramezza is goodyear welted, causing the soles to be a bit thicker because of the welt. This model is either blake stitched or cemented, so comparing it to Tramezza would not be accurate.

    Belgian Loafers?

    Gaziano & Girling has a version, although I believe only available through made-to-order. These in alligator were posted on their instagram a couple of months ago:

    WHAT BRANDS MAKE SLIM / NARROW DRESS SHOES

    Assuming it's the narrow waist design you're after. To Boot New York does some similar models with their handmade line. Not the greatest quality-wise once you compare them to high end makers, but a fine enough shoe IMO. Fairly easy to find discounted as well.

    Ironing Ties?

    I've had luck with a blow-dryer. Aim it into the large end, sort of inflating the tie, if you will.

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    Any ideas who this is supposed to be? Took a gamble and bought this bust/sculpture for $3. Seems done by hand with artist name on back. Usually see this type of thing for composers, but not seeing a striking resemblance to any of the big names.

    How would you rate the condition of these shoes?

    In my opinion the sole wear would indicate they were worn a handful of times. If I had to guess, the creases are as deep as they are because the shoes were not stored with shoe trees. This can be helped, as others have mentioned. You can find similar shoes on ebay, simply search "Norvegese". I...

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept 2018-)

    I bought a cheap sport coat once to experiment trying to take the shoulder pads out. When you take them out, there is still the excess fabric that was there to account for the padding. The shoulders don't lay as flat/natural as you'd like, so no point really IMO.
