    C stuff custom made so if you're proxying, bring a tape measure to get accurate sizes. Nice stuff - especially if they're made with Thomas Mason fabrics (it will have a small Thomas Mason label at the bottom of the shirt placket if is is).

    Well on the advice of DM7 and Nataku, I went and picked up 13 sets of Trafalgar braces. Hopefully they will net me a decent profit as I dont think I would ever wear them. Some have some cool patterns PM if interested, dont have the time to take a ton of pics at the moment.

    From the same store I took 10 nice ties keeping only 1 for myself BB XL all the rest are available and pictured below.
    LtoR: TOP ROW: Behar, Talbott BOC, BB

    I have seen some really weird Ferragamo's similar to that in womens. I left them so I don't know if they are a counterfeit or not. Check the leather inside. Ferragamo (mens and womens) will be lined with really soft leather that is smooth but not slick and it won't have sharp edges. Ferragamo did do some shoes a few years ago in weird fabrics. Womens shoes showed up with odd microfiber coverings, wool and some others. They generally don't hold up well and are junk after they get torn or heavily stained. Those may be microfiber faux suede from the same vintage?

    Clark's oxfords....made in Italy?

    These were surprisingly nice, and they would have been a good step toward what I like to call that no-nonsense Patrik Ervell aesthetic. Too bad they were just a half-size too small. :brick:

    Craig Taylor oxfords. I think I mentioned these before: curious sizing (I'm a 39, and the XS fits me perfectly), with great fabric, and best of all, a hidden placket.

    I've seen that a few times on their Made in Italy SCs. Couldn't tell you why, but it's not faked (so far as I know).


    That HF is ooold. Second oldest label, I think.

    But that charvet is niiice. :slayer:

    I believe Grendel found one of these recently but no one responded to his cries for information. Anybody have any knowledge on this? Feels nice, not outstanding, but good.

    Both are 40r.

    Also picked up a NWT pair of BB flat front chinos in their Clark (straight) fit. 34 x 32, in a taupe/brown color.

    All available.

    AndroFan, I have your answer. I found a nice leather expandable briefcase today with the same logo, and it also had a ID tag with the name.

    "Avenues in Leather" is the maker. Make total sense now why it looks like both an A and a Road.

    I sold Ace_Face the Mountain & Sackett tie I purchased yesterday. Everything has been really smooth thus far so I highly recommend buys/trades with him.

    Left behind:
    Canali Proposta suit for Barney's. 42L. Super 120s. Fully Canvassed. UNVENTED. :brick:
    Dunhill button down
    Viyella for Lands End
    Zegna button down - 50/50 cotton, rayon.
    Tom James Filo a Mano - This was in good shape, but I don't think they flip that well.
    Sero button down
    Hovanders? (Swedish) coat - this was outerwear, but hits at mid-thigh, which I find very awkward. Really nice. Fully canvassed. I haven't been able to find any information on it.
    Centre Mfg. Co., Inc. navy blue trench coat - after doing some research it appears this company made trenchs for the armed forces in the 60s-80s. It was my size, but a little too stiff for me.

    Bought:
    W&M golf windbreaker I'm going to give to a buddy.
    BB made in Scotland shetland sweater. Already gave to my father.
    These IMMEDIATELY caught my eye. I was quite surprised when I saw the label. Chipp. I love old school trad. In phenomenal shape and look like they were hardly worn. Trads, I hope one of you jumps on these. I would totally rock them if they weren't too big in the waist for me, so they're AVAILABLE.

    Waist: 38
    Inseam: 27.5 with another 3" to let out
    I'm not exactly sure what the material is, but I think it's linen. It has a pretty loose weave. First picture is indicative of the color.

    Dude... [​IMG]. Great effing memory! Thanks a bunch for remembering and for taking the time to find the post and point it out. Much appreciated! Doesn't look like it's anything great, but I'll tell you what, since that post I've used the hell out of that thing and love it. Awesome color, very roomy, and a great bag. If you got it for yourself, I'm quite certain you'll love it. Thanks again man!

    You know, even though I found it wasn't worth much, I sure felt like a hero when I saw and recognized that logo.
