    I did a double take on that ebay auction... I have that same exact shoe in an 11 C/E, from Uli Knecht and everything. I've doubled the guard on my closet. :paranoia:

    No, I have a PAIR, in an 11C/E... but the seller might be a ninja who likes to purloin Uli Knecht models! :paranoia:

    Found a pretty beat up D'avenza today. Pity, as it was quite nice.

    Ended up buying a YSL Rive Gauche cashmere DB navy sportcoat. Unvented, so I'm guessing it's a bit old. Cashmere shows a bit of wear, but a beautiful piece. Size 44ish. Is anyone familiar with RG makers? From the tag, Zegna maybe?

    So in an effort to try and finally figure out where all the stuff at my Marshall's is coming from I was hoping we could play a tag identity game. Does anyone recognize this price tag? I'd say 90% of the awesome stuff at my Marshall's have this same tag attached. Some were saying Barney's is off-loading to them. Others say Wilkes Bashford. Hopefully someone will recognize and confirm.

    So, any ideas?

    That looks like a Barneys tag. Wilkes tags have "Wilkes Bashford" on them.

    The specific/detailed knowledge of people here never ceases to amaze me. You all can recognize store tags.

    A gold watch is something men earned after years of service, so strange the man left it in the box, and on top of that the fact it ended up in a thrift store for 8$. These are the sorts of finds I yearn for. And Standard Oil is/was a pillar of the Oil industry, this watch is all sorts of awesome. I believe Standard oil became 'Chevron'.


    thanks!


    The AF is nice, but not anything particularly special. That was a standard tag in the mid 2000's.

    Did a little thrifting while traveling over the holidays. I picked up these two fantastic shirts yesterday in Louisville (sorry, O!), both from the same donor.

    The Isaia is tagged 17/43, measures to ~37 in the sleeves. The Robert Talbott Estate Bespoke is the nicest Talbott you've ever seen (or at least I've ever seen). Certainly on par with the Isaia. No tag, but measures to 17 x 35, double button cuff, super thick MOP buttons. I wish the Talbott was my size.

    Both are available. I'll be listing them in B&S later.

    Nice thrift story: My wife and three daughters were with me in the thrift store in Louisville. An older woman approached my wife, complimented my daughters' behavior, said she had been very blessed in life and reached out a $10 bill, telling my wife to buy the girls each a pair of shoes. Now we didn't think to rub dirt on their cheeks or anything before we went in, so I don't think they looked particularly needy. My wife refused the money despite the woman's insistence. She eventually handed the $10 to my 5-year old daughter (who will take money from strangers, apparently) and walked off.

    The $10 more than covered the shirts above. :slayer:
    (^Joke. My wife was already buying them shoes and other things. The shirts were purchased from my Paypal account.)

    The Kiton is up for grabs, size 15.75. I'll probably throw it on the bay in the next couple of days.

    Where the Flux are you guys finding these Marshall's with this stuff. There are at least 4 Marshall's close range to me and I'm not scouring each of them.
