    NOS pointer coveralls. Are these desirable? I'm guessing no at $40...

    My bad. I wasn't aware of the etiquette. Won't happen again.

    Just bought a pair of Alden's at a thrift...lady at the register says "You got the last pair - aren't they nice?" And I was "Wat?" She says a guy brought in about a dozen pairs but they all sold already except the pair I got. Arrrrgh!

    Oops. I picked a bad time to ask if I should cop something. I have tailored Rubinacci in my cart if that makes me look any better.

    I thought we were pretty far apart but judging by those label it appears I may have found my competition.

    Believe it or not, the Cole Haan Bragano series has somewhat of a following. I usually get between $30-50 for them. I never buy them at consignment stores. But, they bring good margin if you can get them at true thrift pricing.
