    The back patch is missing but you can see where it used to be

    it's not vintage, it's either fake or it's some special model i'm not privy to.

    i'm 99% sure it's phony. i can point out a few things if you like...

    That's the code Florsheim uses for Shell Cordovan.

    Anyone heard from @Takai ? I hope that he got the job. That would be huge for him!

    Yes, those V Cleats are a little deadly.

    Yumas in Calfksin or Shell in any size sell for big bucks. The yuma is unobtainium right now.

    Don't think he's heard yet, said he had another pseudo-interview at a nice newer menswear store here when they noticed his Iron Hearts.

    Nope. Both are owned by Individualized Apparel, who also own Holland & Sherry, Corbin, Gitman Brothers, H. Freeman and a few more companies.

    A Tom James rep can sell you an oxxford suit, but it is made by Oxxford. The USA-made Tom James are made in Maryland by the English American suit factory. Tom James Ventura starts at $3200 and an Oxxford starts at $5000 ish.

    They've changed some things but the ones that are fully canvassed are the Ventura and royal classic in the Classic line, The Sartoria and Filo A' Mano in the Italian, and the Holland & Sherry Bespoke and 1836 in the British Lines.

    This guy wrote a nice guide as there is confusion on this.

    Went into a GW today near a military intelligence center and two Iraqi military officers were in there in full regalia. One ended up buying a girls doll. One of the more bizarre things I have ever seen in a thrift shop.

    If he were a tall, skinny, flat-chested blonde, he could join the staff at UAL. [​IMG]

    Are trucker/SnapBack hats still a thing?

    I found a few today. I know one is a good one. It's a PAC MAN hat. Mesh and SnapBack.

    How do you wash them if the Filthy? The pac man hat looks like it was a lawn mowing hat. Nasty with sweat and dirt.

    BTW guys, I'm looking for jobs in Tampa. Do any of you have any experience thrifting in Florida? What might I expect? I am guessing a lot more skeet but slim pickings on outerwear.

    the other day i saw a lady with her shirt up, titty out, feeding a pretty big kid. she was walking around! not shaming but i had to ditch and find another section.

    also, it's always fun to watch people get caught stealing.
