    +1 to all the :worship: Those shoes available and in the 10.5-11 range?


    EDIT

    Can one of the more knowledgeable guys set me straight about something: When I find some high-end ties, some of them have a tiny pin where the two folds come together at the back of the blade. Normally I remove these. But in a Bijan I got recently in a trade ( :slayer: ), the pin seemed integrated into the fabric, and I got the distinct impression I wasn't supposed to remove it. I thought the "leaves" of the tie had to float free, otherwise it would screw up your knot. Have I been doing it wrong by taking these pins out? Please :teach:

    A big thank you to Workthatwedo for leaving this great silk Samualsohn coat for me. :slayer:

    FYI, they also had out a Zegna and Hicky Freeman orphans (couldn't find the pants) and a moth eaten Aquascutum.

    Excuse the lousy photography, I am no Dig.

    Made a little circuit today and had my best tie haul to date all from one store...same store I found 5 Hermes ties from several months ago. Some baller must have died and they cleaned out his tie collection. Grand total of these 9...$18!

    Top row L-R - Luciano Barbera, Borrelli, Massimo Bizocchi, unknown brand that just had a B on the label but had some nice hand stitched seams
    Bottom row L-R - Borrelli, Corneliani, Brioni, Kiton 5-fold, Kiton 5-Fold.

    Then there was a case with about 2 dozen Zegnas ($39.99), Duncan Quinn's ($10), Breuers (can't remember) and a few others, might have been a Brioni in there, that were all marked up to $39.99 (at a Goodwill? Fur realz?) But then I saw this baby for the marked up price of $29.99 which is my new favorite. This thing is nuts!

    Don't know what this pocket is for, but pretty cool that it has one.
