    That will probably go for monster dough on eBay.
    Take off both prices.

    On the contrary, it seems like the exact kind of thing kids pay large wads of money to boutique brands for these days: slim cuts from the 70's, in classic, uber-simple designs. I'd love to see a fit pic (along with Nataku in his new vest :laugh: )

    So, you see all these posts talking about shell cordovan and whatnot thrift finds, and here's me thinking it would never happen to me. Well, I pulled out the black AE polos I found the other day, and taking a closer look at them, I realized that they're shell. And they're the pair I found in my size.

    Unfortunate, the insoles are in somewhat crummy shape, with some cracking around the ball. I can't really tell how deep it is, but it doesn't go all the way through, so I globbed a bunch of mink oil into 'em, which should keep them from getting any worse.

    But the lession is that good things can happen to you, too, if you wait. These are the first truly high quality shoes I've actually found, rather than bought from e-bay, in my size.

    Today I left behind some promising gear: Cantarelli linen blazer, BBGF suit, Dunhill shirt, Canali pants, orphan jackets by Caruso, Zegna and Cantarelli. Hopes dashed on closer inspection. :(

    It was a pretty good day for ties:

    L-R NWT Corneliani, Tino Cosima, Canali, Cravats of London, Turnbull and Asser
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I found a pair of Versace slacks in my size; the fabric is a blend of wool and cashmere:
    [​IMG]

    An unusual find: a NWT Uniqlo T-shirt from their Manga range, featuring the art of Taiyo Matsumoto. I think the image is from Black and White (aka Tekkonkinkreet).
    [​IMG]

    Lastly I picked up this old Savile Row suit. I mainly bought it to harvest the buttons, which I think are real horn. Still, I wanted to check here if anybody has heard of Scabal Savile Row. Before I destroy, I thought it best to make sure it's not some high-end item that I'd be vandalising.

    Stopped at local private place today. Found a Burberry london shirt marked 17, a brooks brothers tie, and the gem of the day a pair of hardly worn AE MacNeil Oxfords black pebbled leather size 12 D. A size to big for me..
