    Yeah, but we shop thrifts different than the normies who shop solely for themselves.

    I see a tag, toss it in the cart and don't even look at it. When done, take cart to a brightly lit corner or window with a flat surface nearby and inspect the hell out of everything - separate keepers from put-backs; hang the put-backs on the rack near the dressing rooms and pay for the keepers.

    THEN the challenge of picking the fastest check-out line. Some string theory and probability science behind that, wrapped up in a Higgs boson.

    Today:

    These were true thrift.
    [​IMG]

    These were not. Paid up at consignment/charity combo shop.
    A lot of research leads me to believe these are mid 60s or so maybe? Massaro apparently makes 150 pairs a year for Chanel, but I'm not sure what those numbers were in the past. No sale history on ebay, so not much to go on, but I'm assuming extremely rare. Massaro is credited with helping invent the Chanel two tone shoe.

    Anyway, here they are.

    I have a set of Celtic crosses on a Tom James SC, and a gold/black set by themselves.

    Those are all fantastic.

    That cracked me up.
    The GWs were on an excellent 80s kick for awhile, then they went back to the same lite top 40. Back to wearing headphones.

    I didn't know Current/Elliott made any men's stuff. I assumed everything I came across buttoned like a men's was a boyfriend cut.

    Great story, congrats on the position!

    A metric ton of win in there!

    Nothing too exciting to report.

    Dead sexxy. I had a Sammy for the Andover Shop made from the same fabric in a 42 that I traded away (to one of you dudes!) because it was too big.

    I replaced it with this motherfucker right here, which fits like a freaking glove.
