    Found this pair of fantastic condition Snakeskin shoes by "Derby Lea. Ware Custom Made Shoes", made in Hong Kong so they're at least that old. No marked size and with the name I presume they're custom crafted. Anyone know about the brand or have opinions on em?

    ^ They are lizard, not snake, and judging from the ripples and general texture, Id say they are a pressed leather.

    From what I've read and seen, Andrew's ties are quite nice. Great find.

    Just got back from a weekend trip to Vegas and while there, I found the Andrew's Ties boutique. Swung in and was very impressed with their other offerings.

    As for Vegas, didn't get to any thrifting as it sucked big-time on my last trip, so I stuck to the stores. Picked up a couple cool BB Black Fleece casual shirts on 50% off. Can't get Black Fleece here in Minneapolis.

    Have not found much lately. Today was a first: BB Golden Fleece suit. I have seen a lot of other BB's but not Golden Fleece. It is a dark blue chalk stripe. 41 R. I wear 44 R, 36x30; anyone have a suit to trade?

    White prada shirt that I just freakin love. 10 bucks. I never thought I was a brand whore, but any time I find men's prada stuff it blow me away. Needs a minor repair that which I'll be able to do myself and that will be totally invisible, hidden under button flap. [​IMG]

    wow.

    Crazy. I can see how nice clothing can slip through both the owner and the shop unnoticed because people don't know what they have. How do that happen with gold?

    Back home from Vegas. Hit my local thrift today and found a virtually NWOT Samuelsohn suit. Pretty recent. 2 btn, single vent, gray windowpane flannel.

    I picked up this pinstripe coat today. It says Gieves and Hawkes but "tailored by D'Avenza Roma, Made in Italy. Is this a cheap, licensed out line by G&H or any good? It feels quite well made, but not AMAZING.

    Here's some info on D'Avenza.

    Thanks for the link. Its interesting to see it disassembled like that. Except for the vent cross-stitches, this has all the handwork shown.

    (As an aside, love your shows. I had a moment of shame on JJGo a long time ago. Big ups on impending fatherhood!)

    Found a Dunhill made in Italy Navy SC today w/ working surgeon's cuffs. One of the front buttons is missing. Anyone know where I can get one? They are the ones w/ the lower case "d" in gold under a blue glass/plastic cover
