    Today I went thrifting with my mom and bought a lot of not bragworthy stuff, but it was stuff I needed so I'm happy. I did grab these AE Parkland penny loafers in a size 11 if anyone wants them before I throw them on eBay.

    Also, someone forgot to pick up their dry cleaning which consisted of 2 white Nordstrom French cuff shirts, a white Robert Talbot French cuff shirt, and an Ike Behar Blue with a white overcheck shirt. All had MOP buttons. All 17.5. If that interests anyone I can go back for them.

    There's something about wearing used loafers or similar type shoes (like boat shoes) that I just can't get behind :crazy:

    I actually wore used boat shoes out shopping today. I always clean them first and I wear loafer socks. I haven't developed and foot diseases yet.

    I think they are. I honestly don't know what I was thinking on the red one. The purple might be OK.

    Found a few interesting things today. Everything seems to be in great condition

    First some shirts

    Don't see tagged sized for any of them but they look somewhere around a Large. I'll measure when I get a chance.

    I don't know much about ties but at $1 a piece I figured I'd grab a few. I couldn't resist the space one haha

    Thanks for the help; I'm consistently amazed by how much people can divine from just labels.

    The bottom row reads 0105138705, if that means anything...

    The label is also attached quite high up; at the very top it reads 'Etichette dal capo'. Google tells me this means 'Labels of the Chief'- I think you'd have to be something of a chief to pull off these (and most Versace) stuff.

    Have never heard of Domenico Vacca before, but at $490/shirt retail, you probably did the right thing by picking them up...

    The ties on the other hand.....[​IMG]

    Haha yeah the ties seem to be pretty bad. Hopefully I can make up the $6 elsewhere :)

    Haha, those ties are all hideous. Just include them as bonus gifts when you ship the shirts :teach:

    What's everyone's opinion on shipping ties in padded envelopes? Good idea/bad idea
