    And why not just spend 8.5k to kill yourself on a used Ducati instead. I don't care what it went for, you are not looking like a boss riding a bike that looks like an ugly kids toy...sorry Maverick.

    Specific pics from the estate sale this morning.

    Too much there to even describe.

    I am going to have to go back to look at stereo equipment. If there is something specific you guys that are into, let me know and I'll look for you.

    I also need to look at the Motorcycle Jackets, Helmets, equipment, etc.

    On to the finds:

    I'm a shoe guy, so I guess I could start with shoes. This guy wore an 11.5 Narrow. It just happens that I wear an 11.5 Narrow! [​IMG]

    Here's a broad look at the shoes. NONE of them have been cleaned up. Most of them are VERY dusty and will need to be cleaned up.

    26 Pairs of shoes

    [​IMG]

    Group shots:

    Some specific shoes I'm especially proud of. I have never seen a vintage pair of old school Florsheim wingtips in Suede. These are like butter. Assuming they aren't too narrow for me, they are N/A (in fact, I might be buried in them).


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I know most Christian Dior sucks. But, I thought these might be an exception. Made in Italy Burgundy Wingtips.

    [​IMG]

    More Genuine Shark

    [​IMG]

    Below is not another picture of the same shoes. These are ANOTHER pair of Shark Skin Shoes. The ones above are VINTAGE Stacy Adams, these are Florsheim.

    [​IMG]

    The oldest pair of Tretorns I have ever seen.

    [​IMG]

    Some OLD Trax shoes I will have to try the athletic shoe cleanup plan posted a few days ago

    [​IMG]

    Old school (I would 60's based on the heel) Florsheim two tone beauties.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I need to do some research. But, these could be a HUGE find. These are custom Men's Riding Boots. They are made by Dehner. I just checked retail on these are $675. I don't know if vintage makes them better or worse. They also had the english Spurs inside the boots. Obviously they will need a lot of love and care, but they should do great.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not sure what brand these are. I think they are lizard and something else. Made in Spain is all I can read.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Frye Dress boots

    [​IMG]

    Look at the condition:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Worn once? Maybe?

    Enough of the shoes.

    How about a Baccarat Crystal Ashtray (signed) for $10?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    This next shirt was just for fun. I have always wanted one.


    [​IMG]


    A nice new ULTRA soft Leather jacket for me. Colebrook (I'm not familiar with the brand)

    Ebay Fodder


    Nice Burberry -- BIG too big for me.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another nicer Burberry BIG

    [​IMG]

    Lanvin, but unfortunately not the really good Lanvin, but I like the details on the patch pockets.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    An Interesting Louis Roth Herringbone. There was LOTS of Louis Roth. I left the rest.

    [​IMG]

    More Fodder unless it fits me. Vintage Palm Beach Pincord in MINT condition

    [​IMG]

    I really don't know what to think about this. Its Suede and a trench coat. Its either a very small man's coat or its a womans.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I don't know much about watches. But, I liked this one because it is thick and looked cool. Obviously needs a band

    [​IMG]

    Deetz

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pretty sure this next one isn't worth much. But, again, I kinda liked it.

    [​IMG]


    How about a nice Mont Blanc Meisterstuck?

    [​IMG]

    Well, I don't know. Let me see the price?

    Yep, less than lunch.

    [​IMG]

    All in all. An incredible day. I'm sure I'm going to end up going back a few times.

    By the way, I kept it below 60 pics (there were 59 I think).
