love your pictures Wes. looks classy
Okay, so here are some pictures of the Allen Edmonds that I mentioned before. Looking at them even more closely (and taking their pictures) makes me think that they're definitely different year versions of the same model or something, as they're just not the same shoe. Person I bought them from said they were a gift to him, but seems willing to work with me, so I'm going to send him the pics and it should be fairly obvious.
Here's the toe box, with some other pics below the fold...
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Shoes are lined up side-by-side with one another, but one toe-box seems slightly larger as well
aaaaaand the different information on the inside of each shoe...
2 different shoes, guy tried to pull a fast one, or made a legitimate mistake. If you want to return them you should be able to, unless this was fully disclosed in the auction.
I had the day off today, was going to catch up on this thread, but I got to reading, and then I got the "itch". Soooooo, I took a walk to two of my nearby spots. This is was I came home with. A couple firsts for me.
My first thrifted sunglasses. O.G Rayban Wayfarers, glass lenses, made in the USA! Way heaver than the pair I currently own. $1.50
Boss, for the wife $1.50
Trafalgar and Brooks Brothers braces.
J Crew. blazer for the wife, $4.99
My first Hickey Freeman suit worth picking up. Canterbury model, looks unworn and old, can anybody date this? Size 42 R, available.
Vintage K-Mart shooting vest, 100% cotton duck (Nataku, I'm looking at you)
Vintage 60's? 100% cashmere. This thing was too cool to leave behind, silver buttons, good pattern matching, made in the USA. Size 42 long and available, otherwise off to the bay'
Another first, good God!
Also another first and also good God!
Brioni size 16 1/2 R thick mop's. Available.
Also I will get back to all of your p.ms
Eazye - Idk if anyone covered this already, but a bit of info on Sulka:
They technically don't make anything. They were an incredibly high end store that had the worlds finest makers make things for them. Think of basically a department store with all Purple Label level stuff. They are now defunct--I believe that tux has one of the last labels. It's very likely made by St. Andrews. Anything with a Sulka label is worth picking up, as it's becoming quite collectible. Any ties I've ever found have sold within 24 hours, primarily to japan.
Interesting that this was brought up. Today I ran by a thrift on my way home from a quick run to TJ Maxx and there were a pair of really nice houndstooth pants. They were made in the USA and were a silk/wool blend. However, it was the old label.
Really nice ties! This probably should probably be in the form of a pm but since I am quoting...are those whales on the ferragamo? If so, interested.
Oh yeah, if anyone is interested, Corneliani ID everything everywhere at my TJ Maxx, polos, bd's, khaki scs, some of the pieces even say couture on the tag, I don't know if that means anything. $50-70 for the polos and bds, and $200 for the scs. Also prada for $200+...They also became savvy to the RLPL sunglasses, they went from $30 to $99-109.
Awesome, thanks for the info, that's why I fucking love this thread!
For our Japanese readers, I found a slim Sulka tie I'll be posting later. Available!
Do we have Japanese readers? How is thrifting in Japan?
Quick, someone thrift one of these
What does it cost to send a tie to Japan?
Yup, you're gonna be fine here. Either the seller makes it right or eBay will.
I'll be headed to Tokyo in October. I'll keep you guys updated.
Beck found a Barbour waxed cotton Boarder jacket w/ hood and liner today for $20. I found some REI shirts.
Damn. I still want to find a Barbour in my size. Found a 2xl quilted vest once but that's it.
I made a run on my lunch break and walked around with a Clan Douglas cashmere sweater that ended up being way too big for me so I decided to leave empty handed.
