    Anyone ever thrift at garage sales? There are always a bunch in my neighborhood but I never check them out.

    Made in Italy? If so, likely Isaia.

    Good lawd.

    Seriously, we have the worst form of shopaholic addiction. One that is self funding.

    DC Italy - look for this tag, could be Isaia. Had to pass on one yesterday because of damage, knew instantly what it was, the fabrics are Isaia level, even if the hand work isn't.

    Mistake, but those aren't nearly as valuable as the V Cleat model, that would have been a real mistake.

    They were $40. Ya I regretted it the moment I left the store but all I could think about was how many shoes I have that don't fit well. They were too wide for me to wear comfortable. I still have those new Nettletons

    Oh well. Lesson learned, thanks everyone. I guess in the future if stuff doesn't fit I should open it up to trades here. I see you all swapping such nice things.

    I used my 30% off coupon as well lol so would have been 26 plus tax. I cheaped out. Every time I do and I go back its gone. Happened to me on two nwt Indian motorcycle jackets a couple of weeks ago as well.

    I think we all have this problem, I have way too much stuff [​IMG]
