    Interesting shoes that are very well made. Branded "Gerardo Fossati" which doesn't return any previous sales results, but recognized that Silvano Lattanzi made these because I once found a pair of Brioni branded shoes made by them.

    Googling the name shows that Lattanzi owns the trademark for this label, so a nice little confirmation.

    He's just showing that he dug through it four times and came up with the same results.

    So my wife and I were going through our books tonight, to clear some out. I randomly opened an old Andy Warhol book i thrifted a couple years ago and I saw this. :O

    (If I get this authenticated, can I nominate it for the 2018 cheapies award even though I got it a year or two ago?)

    Looked up some stuff and found some of these. The ones with the soup can drawing seem to be worth more. Fucking craaaaazy.

    I was looking at 2 Brooks Bros 100% Merino Wool Polo sweaters in Grey and Navy. Nice combo. On their website, all I can find is $298 models. I paid $17 a piece.

    Awesome. I have an irrationally gigantic love for Lattanzi shoes.

    our cat literally barfed on my wife's Galaxy S6. Not only does it freak out (screen keeps coming on), but the USB charger doesn't work. Can only charge wirelesly... And she left the charger pad at her work. 50 miles away in Sunnyvale.

    So, decided afterwards to go to lunch at the creamery in Palo alto. And check 2 thrifts in Menlo Park. Holy shit, I thought the discovery shop in Oakland was nuts, these jack wagons were asking $250 for used Canali suits. And $185 for facanable Chinese leather jackets.

    The thrift store called "the shop" across the street was a downright bargain at $200 for similar suits.

    No thanks.

    BTW, we ordered a brand new LG G5 for $200 in case you were concerned

    Headed into the women’s consignment today. Normally priced pretty high. No idea what happened here. 17 NWT recent St. John jackets. Anywhere from $995-1895 each.

    PPU - $29

    It had a big tear on the front and it was $15 so I left. If it was named I would have picked it up
