    And lastly an ethrift (as long as under 10% counts as a thrift for NWT?)

    NWT (but pants hemmed), possibly N/A, haven't decided yet (42/35 tagged, fits a smidge smaller though)

    Am I looking at that correctly? Did they put a pricing gun through the leather of the shoe???

    Some of the thrifts do that here as well. They will connect the shoes with a plastic piece right through the leather. Same ones ruin every silk scarf and pocket square as well. Such a waste.

    Yeah...I've bought a pair like that in the past and the hole did close up mostly, after wax & polish couldn't see it...but it's a bummer. Usually they at least do it thru an existing seam hole.

    Right on - thanks!
