    Never heard of David lance but a bespoke handmade navy chalk stripe flannel SB peak 3 piece for $10 seems like an easy bet

    I've found that exact suede tweed loafer in an æ by Allen Edmonds model, though I believe it was only a prototype (I'll try and dig my picture, it's somewhere here on SF). If I'm not mistaken, it's from around a bit after AE sold Rancourt back to the Rancourt family in 2009, but not by much (maybe 2012-2013). The æ line was all made in the Dominican republic, but the Rancourt factory still made all of Allen Edmonds MiUSA handsewns. So from the COO, I would guess they were made by Rancourt. The "prototype" one I found could have been while AE still was deciding what to do with the æ line.

    EDIT: Hmmm, well not the EXACT same loafer, but close.

    Might have gone too far today when I suggested to the SA that the denim skirt I found in the menswear should probably be in the women's section. She muttered something about "When you've finished rearranging the store". I work there, and I just find myself straightening things up, rehanging clothes and so on, even when I'm not on duty. Sounds like I need to stop that.

    If I am in Vinnies and see something misdirected I just put it in the right place and say nothing.
