    There were a bunch of smaller things I bought that aren't pictured, so 170 wasn't the total on just that lot. Jil and Zegna were $30, and the Zegna was actually the first time I was able to match an orphan from another shelf, so there's that at least. It fits decently, so i'll keep it around for a while. Belvest was $12, or whatever the untagged sports coat price is at Goodwill.

    What about the brooks make it seem like an orphan? It was only $10, regardless.

    I have been to lots of hoarder sales. There is one estate sale that is amazing that is amazing about organizing the stuff in a hoarder sale. In fact, she has gotten a reputation for her skills. She will have EVERYTHING organized. She prices EVERYTHING and no matter what it is, she has it in a baggie and labeled and priced. I don't know how she can make any money considering the weeks it takes her to get a sale ready, but she sells everything.

    Thanks for weighing in. It does seem well made but there are things about it that just don't feel right. Going to toss it back.

    Doesn't Common Projects put numbers on the outside of the heel like that?

    Not in that spot, though. They're further down, plus gold.
