    Thrift fit again. I'm not sure if this is an appropriate outfit for saddle shoes (or which kinds of outfits saddle shoes work with at all, for that matter), so I would love some feedback on this outfit.

    I disagree with your assessment of the movement. If these watches truly are from the 1800's they would likely be fusee movements. So what you would be looking for is something like this (below). A key is used for this movement. The pictured movement is actually gorgeous and I believe it is from a 3500+ 18K pocket watch from the 1800's. You are correct, you could be looking at some serious money for the set, however, I see 10K to be slightly high.

    Hi!

    My wife and I hit one spot to kill a couple of hours and came up with the usual stuff- nothing worth mentioning. However, I did pick up a pair of old Nikes in my size that seemed more or less in unused or lightly used condition. Clean and white, no wear to the soles, overall fresh looking, but the plastic(?) padded part around the top of the ankles is dry and cracked (not cracked through, but more like surface crackling throughout).

    I remember Noobizor and few others talking sneakers recently and I don't know anything about sneakers / SW&D. Do any of you know anything about these?

    Even if they aren't anything special, I still think that they're pretty cool and will probably just end up wearing them myself since they're my size.

    Either way, thanks beforehand for any information that you might have.

    I don't really thrift, but have worked deals and purchases with a number of regulars in this thread.
    I figure I could post a picked-up-from-a-thrifter fit pic:
    Isaia jacket from a cosbysweater - it's slight lighter than navy, but not quite the "blueberry" Isaia and a nice lightweight wool. I added white MOP buttons to make it a my go-to casual summer jacket.
    Shirt, pants, undies, shoes are not thrift finds :hide: but they were all had at way less than retail :nodding:

    yes they have a key,also my assssment includes 4 display cases for the watches.all are handmade with glass on four sides and made of brass (i think) with a little pillow inside.very ornate with depictions of horse racing etc,these cases alone are worth money i think

    well i dont own them (yet?) but thanks anyway.congratulate me later.
    like i said before though,as nice as these watches are i was more impressed with the little display cases,they almost looked like Fabrege Eggish...i think you will know what i mean

    [​IMG]

    also guys just some advice,this lady also donated two LALIQUE vases,these can fetch anywhere from $1000 to $30000.
    i now always check all the glassware,you cant miss them they are always handblown and usually look frosty.and they are always signed on the bottom.
    sometimes just Lalique sometimes R.Lalique.
    "i know a guy" i really do (no its not frenchy) ,that has found 3 of these over the span of five years so they are out there

    Already been discussed. And I never said he'd find either of those movements. It was an comparison in obvious differences between complication. From that time, it's much more likely to find a complicated engraving rather than a complicated movement.

    I've seen enough luggage to outfit the military, but this is the only piece I've found nice enough to pick up. Looks unused. Vintage Samsonite, $5
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Calvin Klein desert boots, not the best, I know but fill a void in my collection for now. The pictures make these look shittier than they really are. Fit like a glove.

    Floresheim woven cap-toes. Size 8 D. Available for trade.

    And mad trees yo!
