    I bought a pair of Alden boots off of eBay that had one heel higher than the other and I just took them to a shoe repair shop and they fixed them. It wasn't expensive as I remember it.

    +1. Probably you're best bet without ruining them.

    Good spot on the Truzzi. Great shirts. The 17.5's would fit me, but I am shirted out at the moment, way too many in my closet.



    I am beggining to think you are the number 1 thrifter here - astonishing regularity at finding extremely good items.

    Man you guys are killing it lately. NOTHING at my GWs besides suits from that 60s that are as soft as cardboard. Where in the hell do these things come from?

    Kiton ties (x7)? holy crap
    $66 shell cordovans? damn.

    All I've been buying lately are spoo and tate hand me down ties - great values nonetheless! :slayer:

    Good luck everyone in your thrifting endeavours!

    Picked up a nice pair of AE macneil. These are old stock, but they are damn near new. sz 8D These are the picks before I have even had a chance to clean them up. Available.

    Today was a bit of a flop. Made it out with a mere Zegna sportcoat. Mainline, pretty recent. Made for Neiman Marcus. Trofeo fabric. 3 btn. Side vented. Tagged a Eu. 60 but fits like a US 48 R. It's available if anyone wants it.

    I actually came across a pair of Paul Stuart monks in suede (Made in Italy). 8D. they were nice but needed some work. Left them at $20.

    First decent pair of used shoes I've seen in this town in the past 9 months.
