    I've never seen a nailhead jacket that wasn't part of a suit.

    I think that's my favorite Hermes tie I've seen. Nice pickup.

    These were all discount store purchases not thrift but still bragworthy on a discount level. [​IMG]
    Pardon the bedspread photo, I needed a big surface....
    Not pictures is another 5 pairs of the oxfords at the bottom right.
    All NIB Brioni. N/A
    The entire middle row are the Limited Edition pairs (5)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Edit: top row in the middle, that pair of chukkas is mink lined!

    Started out spotting this tie on a belt rack. Looking like someone decided not to get it and left it there.


    [​IMG]

    So I figure I'll go have a look at the tie section. Go figure, 3 more Brioni.

    [​IMG]

    I also see these ties with little fishies so I check those. "Ohh, Ferragamo. Nice..."
    Also an interesting woven one.

    [​IMG]

    H print Hermes. "Yeah, throw that in too."

    [​IMG]

    A couple Dildo Zegnas. Also an Armani. At this point might as well throw that in the basket as well.

    [​IMG]

    Finished 'er off with a few Stefano Riccis.

    [​IMG]

    15 ties, all at the base price. No "boutique" mark up. I think that is my favorite tie haul I've had. Fun day today.

    You tell me. I guessed it was an SC because of the pattern and texture, I'd feel it would be unlikely someone would wear a trou in the same fabric, but as I said I'm very new at CM. Everything I know I've learned in the last week from this thread.

    This is a crazy haul! Just insane.

    Are all these shoes N/A? Any of them 11.5?
