    renovateur indeed works on shell.

    that's basically all i use; renovateur and deerbone; and both are used sparingly.

    Anybody want a proxy on some 9EE Lobb Prestige with trees? Consignment, pricy enough they aren't an autokop to flip (for me), but a dang good price for personal use. LMK.

    Fun day out with my family today and got some thrift in as I'd hoped. Getting better at not picking up stuff for the sake of it (who knows if I'm passing on the right stuff or not. Still learning).

    Thoughts on my pick ups would be appreciated. All available :)

    Brioni baby! Really pleased to pick this up as I've not seen any before now. Quality is stunning. Looks hardly worn. Sadly not my size. Pale pink, 16" collar.

    Issey Miyake men. Black with white irregular stripes changing direction. Grandad collar. Hidden button placket and a sort of hidden front chest pocket. Size 2 (looks medium/small ish). Made in Japan. Fits me but not my style. This is money right?

    Picked up some lovely Richard James Saville Row Mayfair wingtips. Pebble grain brown leather. Size 44 EU, 9.5 UK. Made in Italy. Hardly worn. Look in fantastic condition. Too big for me sadly.

    Things I left on the rack that I'm doubting myself about:

    Nice Daks navy and sky blue pinstripe jacket. Orphan though. Couldn't find the trousers anywhere. Slight rip in armpit lining.
    Orvis shirt - did I dream it or are these a thing? Looked old.
    Tommy Hilfiger denim. Have no clue if these are a thing or not. I passed anyway.

    Enjoying playing the game fellas.

    Someone donated a bunch of Gitman bros ties to my local church shop. They charge 50 cents a tie which is sweet. Anyone know the difference between a regular Gitman bros tie and a Gitman gold tie?

    Other than Gold being marketed as a more "premium" line, I'm not sure. I once found a cache of new-with-tags Gitman and Gitman Gold shirts and couldn't discern a difference.

    I have a crazy nice Oxxford tie made by Gitman Bros. In fact, there's a video floating around somewhere that shows ties being made in the Gitman factory for Oxxford.

    Gitman just doesn't move for me. I see shitloads of it. However, I just leave it for someone who might want to have something nicer than Stafford.

    It would seem that the first sentence would help you deal with the second sentence.
