Dang! This was the last day of the sale? I never understand how some of that stuff makes it to the last day.
Yeah last day of the sale. Their original asking prices were a little steep then the homeowner told them they had to have everything out of the house by 4pm today so they went into panic mode I think.
Nice looking gear. The croc loafers, polo suits and Ferrari luggage is all very cohesive for the previous owner's character and lifestyle.
Thanks, yes this guy knew how to spend his money. They said he was a brain surgeon

Dayum, not so sure about following that monster haul from Mr Wingtip, but hey, life goes on. My inventory acquisition is very patchy atm, as it's hit triple digits in Phx so my visits to auctions down there are now suspended until I acquire a cooling vest. I have loaded too many trailers with furniture in 115 degrees, and I just don't handle it like I used to. But I still visit my three local thrifts a couple times a week, so stuff trickles in. Here's a bit of it:

Someone was talking the other week (Wooly, maybe?) about how we deal with ties, and this was a good example: I recognized a 'Gamo from a distance, and as we all know ties rarely show up as singletons, so it was time to dig in. Yep, another 'Gamo, an Allyn "Marathon" that some runner will spring for, and an NWT Eton.

Sanyos don't get a whole lotta love, but they are amongst the best-constructed, functional outerwear I've come across, so I have a couple in my own wardrobe. This was one long, one car-coat length, both with detachable liners. I find these flip well.

Robust Carhaart dungarees for the quick flip.

Fall inventory is here: a nice alpaca bearcat for the girls from Saks

A nice minty Scully blazer

Scottevest jacket. This thing is awesome, with hidden pockets everywhere. I need to get one in my size for my next Europe trip. Those ubiquitous pickpockets don't have a chance, lol.

NWT Polo cargo shorts in salmon for four bucks? Sure, I'll bite

Bench-made lizard boots from a maker my own bootmaker will have to identify.

Kuhls for me

Some jackets. Burb, Cremyuck just in time for the season, and a Crittenden that's surprisingly nice, with Italian-style tailoring details.

I was going to do a "guess the maker" on this dress until I saw it was plastered all over it, lol. I had no idea they even made dresses. A thousand bucks on the label. Whaaaaat?

I thought they only made these (this one's got the liner too):

More quilting:

Another pair of crocodile cap toes, no doubt from the same consignor as the black pair from Zelli last week. Just gorgeous.

And finally, my favorite find from yesterday. I saw a hand-written estate sale sign and decided to drop by. There was a small rack of clothing, mostly women's, but a handful of men's items as well. Most were the usual SJB and Izod junk, though the Scully came from there, but tucked in next to an old Palm Beach was this thing of beauty:

A pure linen bomber with cotton cuffs, collar and waist. Just gorgeous, and my size too (dammit) . . .

That's it for now! I think I'm at my photo limit, so the rest can wait . . . Rock on, gang!

Another question for the team, sorry. This is probably super simple. What are the four lines and do they relate to the size of the Allen Edmonds Dalton boots I posted previously? Is the size just 9E on these boots and why is the E stylized? Thanks!
