    Also, here is the overseas seller who had creams on the cheap last fall. Note: there were some incidents of poor packaging.

    Picked up an excellent pair of AE Wingham tassel loafers, 8 1/2 D, Merlot calf skin, has heel pads. Can only think they didn't wear them to the funeral. So they were donated. Like new. (Available)

    These were $295 retail and still listed at Nordstrom.

    Looking for a pair of good quality black oxfords, size 10.5D. AE Park Avenues would be ideal, but something similar is fine. My brother-in-law needs a pair of quality dress shoes. Let me know if you find or have anything.

    Thanks. I'm always surprised when you find a shoe that is in this good of condition. The GW only puts out one shoe and you have to ask for the other. Wish I could come across some 9 1/2's in brown.

    Also picked up a nice woven made in Italy, Hugo Boss, 3 1/4" wide, liked the pattern and color:

    No name ties for myself, the knit on the right however looks unlike any of the other knit wool/silk ties I own.

    Seersucker like blazer for myself, no maker tags, fits like a glove. I know it's no Issia cashmere, but it will fill a gap until I find one:)

    Oxxford super 120's blazer, for Neiman Marcus. I'm assuming this isn't part of a suit because the tag lists only the jacket and also calls it a "Collector's Item". Size 43L, available.

    And finally, a throw away Ralph Lauren fragrance messenger bag I bought, just so I could carry all this shit home on my bike in addition to my regular backpack:) Think I'll keep it.
