    Their selvedge jeans are Not very quality. I hope their newer stuff is better. If it fits well, go for it. I would rock some uniqlo that's on sale though. I have a pair of their chinos and its pretty well made.

    Ha! That might be good. What I really need to do is sell the ones that I bought to sell. Maybe I need to list them on the buy sell thread for $10 a pair plus shipping. I wonder if anyone would go for that?

    These are not Alden and Allen Edmonds (I already sold those) and no shell cordovan. But, there are LOTS of ECCO, quite a few Johnston Murphy, Cole Haan (some vintage), Florsheim, Doc Marten's, etc.

    While I typically do not mess with formal wear, these two caught my eye this morning.

    Sorry for the lazy way of dressing... I didn't have the energy to dig out the proper waistcoat to go with it.

    You'd probably have better luck on Ebay with most of it. Made-in-England Cole Haans might be desirable here, and any Imperial, Royal Imperial, or 50's-and-earlier Florsheims.

    I know I would make more money on ebay. AND if I listed them on ebay, I would want a lot more than $10. But, that's pain in the ass part is listing a whole bunch of shoes that will sell for $20-40. I did have good luck with ECCOs. The people who like them are sort of a cult.

    By "you'd probably do better on Ebay" I meant "I doubt SFers are interested in most of those."

    Have you considered listing them in lots of 4-6 pairs each on Ebay?

    Deetz???

    Any Nintendo fans out there? Saw this neat bag at lunch today (this is just a photo I pulled off google). Passed on it but would pick it up if someone would actually want it, not sure if it has value.

    That's some nice stuff up there Vader! :slayer:

    Found a couple cool things myself today.
    NWT BBGF navy sportcoat. Sleeves still basted with tag still attached and buttons were in the front pocket. Available.

    Gentlemen's book. N/A

    PRL black velvet blazer, size L, available.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Sick sick sick vintage PRL virgin wool burgundy shawl collar cable knit sweater. N/A I almost walked out of the store without checking the sweaters, remembered at the last second, went back and saw this beauty sitting there for the princely sum of $3.79.

    I've been on the hunt for black PTB's for a while now, and though these are certainly not the best, they will most definitely due until something better comes along. N/A
    [​IMG]

    And then this beast. Super heavy mens wool cape. Totally handmade. I've never in all my years of thrifting come across one of these. It's a little beat up, naturally, but I couldn't leave it there to possibly end up as scrap material. From my limited google-fu, it seems most people stopped wearing capes in the 1890's, though use was on a steady decline since the 1820's, with the rise in popularity of the greatcoat.
