    I saw a Finamore shirt at Marshall's marked down on sale 3 times to $49 actually. Maybe I should not have passed up on it.

    Lurker here. I've read from about page 900-1300 still trying to catch up. Picked up these two items today and I'm wondering how flippable they are. I know these aren't the typical brands you guys pick up, but for $7.50 a piece I don't think I did too bad. Please correct me if I used the terms "suit jacket", "sportcoat", or "herringbone" incorrectly. No mannequin so I decided to just put them on myself. Thanks!

    Can I still call it NWT if I found the tag unattached in the pocket?

    Here are some items I referenced previously and will be for sale either here (if there is interest please PM me) or on eBay shortly.

    First, who can tell me about this particular suit? Canvassed, very nice mid-weight fabric and seems to fit me quite well. The quality is definitely there and this one is going in the closet, but I am not familiar with the brand.

    Next I have 2 15.5 x 33" Brooks Bros. Golden Fleece dress shirts. Egyptian cotton and gorgeous MOP buttons. White with black stripe and a blue stripe - practically new

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    J. Press Overcoat - would probably fit someone who wears about a 42 Suit. I am a 44L and it's a little small.

    1/2 Chest: 23"
    1/2 Waist: 22.5"
    Shoulder: 19.25"
    Sleeve (from end of shoulder): 23.5"
    Extra sleeve to let: 2.5"
    Length: 42

    Hey guys, I need help identifying these shoes I bought today. I am about 90% sure they are Florsheim because of the design on the sole but there is nothing that says "Florsheim" on the shoes. I believe that they are NOS, but again not really sure. Any additional information would be great because they are going on Ebay Thursday. Or if anyone is interested in buying they are a size 10 D. Thanks SF!

    Had a pretty good day... Today was shoe day!

    These are in great shape and my size... But I don't really wear black shoes, so...

    I think these Ballys should flip, right? Size 9.5 D... Is that US or UK 9.5?

    I remembered seeing these Harrys of London shoes on Mr. Porter (http://www.mrporter.com/product/186561) so I picked them up... Trying to figure out if they're flippable. Size 43 EU, so around a 9 US

    Also found this vintage Izod Lacoste sweater... inner tag says it's from Holiday 91 season, but it doesn't look like it's ever been worn. Is it real?

    It has these weird reversed seams on both sleeve cuffs

    Picked up a couple shirts... A Brooks Brothers Country Club for me for the spring and a Hickey Freeman striped 16 / 36

    My favorite find of the day was a Brooks Brothers robe that looks unworn. I've been looking for one of these (still looking for the pajamas)

    Worthmoore was a florsheim diffusion line aimed at younger people. Lower price point, slightly worse quality, they are definitely NOS

    According to this, "The Florsheim Shoe Story", Worthmore were the lower priced introductory line for young men getting into Florsheim

    Probably should have left this one behind. Those pants have been drycleaned to death (super shiny).

    Made a couple stops with my wife today and found some interesting items. First, I've been waiting for this Oxxford sport coat to go on a bigger discount at a local higher-end thrift. I picked it up for just under $100.

    [​IMG]

    Then I grabbed a few items that will find their way to eBay.

    Brooks Brothers knit, long sleeve pullover
    Hickey Freeman 100% silk shirt (labeled Hickey Freeman Sport)
    Hickey Freeman suit (Canterbury line, 41L)
    Richman Brothers Harris Tweed overcoat (might keep this one)

    If those AE's were a half-size down, I'd be all over them. Also, that robe is nice (he said while also wearing a thrifted BB robe)!

    Ok thanks!

    I guess why we are on the subject of shoes. Anyone know this brand as well? :facepalm:

    I can't answer your question, but those are amazing. You found those in a thrift store? [​IMG]
