    Bragano Flip talk

    Me too. The woven varieties are even better. I sold pair that was New old stock for $300. The kiltie on the one asked about hurts it a little in my opinion. But, I have definitely sold Bragano for more than some Allen Edmonds.

    I don't know that. They just look very similar.

    Not sure about this one but I've seen C&J for Hilfiger before. Their 'Connaught' model, to be specific. The lettering on that looked different from this one, though.

    Its funny when I read this the other day I was wearing a Bamboo SC. I didn't even know what it was. It is a Jack Victor that is 100% Bamboo viscose and VERY soft and nice. I have no idea is they are worth anything. But, it sure feels nice. And based on the one I have, I would probably buy another.

    Easily my favorite non-tramezza ferragamos I've ever found... natural color wholecuts. I didn't even know they made these! Already starting to get a super-badass patina on the toes. 9.5D

    What about St. Louis? Its a huge city and there are a couple of areas/ suburbs that are some richest in the Country (Town and Country, Ladue and Frontenac are in the top 25 wealthiest suburbs in the Country). The metro area has a population of 2.8 Million. Anyone from St. Louis on here? If St. Louis is unrepresented here, then I really need to make a trip to St. Louis ASAP!

    I posted earlier about a possible trip to Raleigh. No one on here is from Raleigh, North Carolina?

    here's an idea: bring a trailer/u-haul. They manufacture a lot of furniture in/around Raleigh and i'm sure there are some pretty crazy warehouse deals available. $.02
