    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    This morning I came across a pair of Crockett & Jones shoes that appeared to be CG.
    The model name is Dundas 3 and they are a mid-brown colour.

    On the sole they are stamped "Hand Curried Leather".

    Are they worth buying to flip?
    I'd normally snap up C&J, but these ones look CG and this store has recently jacked up all their prices. They're asking £40 for these shoes.

    Also spotted a very nice Grieves and Hawkes double breasted overcoat there, so might be going back.

    £40 seems steep but I assume you've tried searching completed listings? Margins might be tight on that. Maybe it would be worth it if they are for personal use.

    Yes.
    Not my size and the profit would probably be minimal.
    Not the most attractive shoes either.

    PRL Made in Italy is a thing, right?

    I usually skip Pink, but this was minty and "Superfine 2-fold 170s," thought worth a try

    Filson pants in near-mint condition, despite having moved from West to East coast!

    Finally, a really soft Scottish cashmere sweater-vest

    L 40. Not sure if available, it's a little big on me so not sure if keeping yet.

    *I have another at home that's like a 42 and in the same condition, needs cleaning and hole repair. Think I may have them cleaned at the same time.

    Ethrift from the weekend just came in- NWT flannel FSC suit at 15% rule. Fit is perfect just need to get the pants hemmed and sleeves finished.

    Quick and dirty @SpooPoker impression -
    Shirt is Ascot Chang for the Armoury true thrift.
    Tie is a navy Zegna cashmere from @YellowHookTies not thrift.

    For the sports fans. Kendall was a catcher, so it really wouldn't make sense to put his name on infielder's glove, unless it was his. He retired with the Royals and still works them in some capacity. He lives about 5 miles or so from the store where I found this. Thoughts? Regardless, it's still probably a $100+ glove.

    did they ever commercially make a signature catcher's glove for Kendall? if not, there's your answer.
