They're in the 1969 Florsheim Catalog on Vcleat.com. The model is called "The Exeter." The model number is 31326. The leather is not buffalo/bison, it's referred to in the Florsheim catalog "Bookbinder Coventry Calf." I'd expect $75-100 for them.

Not a watch but the best horological piece I’ve found for cheap. It’s still sitting in pieces in a box until I figure out what to do with it.

That is very cool.
Also reminds me that I did find something rarer then that Heuer .
Paid 6.99 for this was sitting with other clocks .
It's a early piece because the clock only Has Jaeger on it while the other half has Jaeger Lecoutre on it .
So they were mixing parts from the pre merger.
There is also a rarer crocodile version

If your name is on this list, you need to update your Sneaky Santa 2019 profile so that your Thriftmas buddy knows what you want/need.

Updated!

I also want to give a huge shoutout to @txwoodworker for sending me the RL mug! Not only is the mug great, but he also included an awesome RL pocket square that's going right into the rotation. Just a reminder that this thread is filled with awesome people, and that this is a great community! Thanks again @txwoodworker, really appreciate it!

I'm not in love with it, it's not worth a lot of money and it's no cream puff... but in all my years of thrifting, this is literally the first Kiton tie I've ever found. And only the second Kiton anything besides a shirt big enough to fit Shaq.

For $3 out the door, I will wear it proudly.

I still have NEVER found Kiton. While I haven't really thrifted in 18 months (other than 3-4 trips in the last month), I did spend LOTS of time thrifting for 3-4 years and never once found Kiton. Most of the time was spent in Kansas so its a huge surprise I never found it. But, I also never found it in St. Louis, Houston, Dallas, Gainesville, Chicago (only a few places in the Burbs), and Oklahoma City.

I did just get back from a Thrift Trip at lunch. I hope my Thriftmas buddy likes Robert Graham shirts! Just kidding. I did get one. They are still a thing to flip on the bay, right? Especially in BIG sizes like 3XL?

I have struck out a little on figuring out some shoes on the vintage shoe thread. I'm betting there is some real expertise on here. Maybe I'm just not being patient enough. But, I'm trying to figure out who made some Brooks Brothers shoes that are marked made in England.

I think the likely candidates are C&J, AS, Peal & Co (which I learned is really just Brooks Brothers), and possibly Church's. So, here's a picture of the inside:

I didn’t know that was on Vcleat. That’s a great resource. I agree the shoes in question are Coventry Calf.

The LWB I have look very different. For one they are burgundy, the pattern is not regular, it looks like an exotic skin because the marks/spots (can’t think of right word) are different sizes. I sent a picture to David last year and he thought they were something like Bison but also said he wasn’t sure. I’m not trying to quote him exactly.

I’ll take a pic over the weekend. The catalog you mentioned did have a pair of alligator shoes that I have! Now, I know what they are called. But, they must have had that style previously. The brown pair I have are from 69 (now I know all I knew before was 59 or 69) but I have another pair and David said they were 50’s — can’t read the numbers.
