    So.... You guys were right. NOVA sucks for thifting. I didnt find shite, save 3 pairs of cufflinks ( you know me). However before I left PA I found another sweet pair of Hanover longwings in brown(10 EEE/E). A older Nordstrom tweed suit. A burberrys sc and a pair of church's loafers I think they are 9.5. They are stamped 95 f. Pics when I return on Sunday.

    So, been trying to avoid thrifting and the temptation of this thread a bit, as there was a bike I've been lusting after for about a year or so that popped up on eBay. Was trying to conserve funds, but it ended over my budget, so the thrifting binge continues...

    First, NOS Sidi bike shoes. Nearly shit myself when I saw them in the case. Then :fu: when I realized they were women's. So, off to the 'Bay...

    Some ties... The Saks one is available. The rest I fancy.

    (Eagerly anticipating: "That Hermes isn't real. The carriage on the tag has too many spokes," and other such arguments that always follow the posting of an Hermes tie)

    More ties...

    This is a Robert Graham, correct?

    Anyone want some great summer pants? Size 36 BNWOT Bill's Khakis yellow chinos:

    HF Tweed suit:

    Both tweeds are going into the vault until winter time, UNLESS someone has some equally awesome tweeds in a slim 38R to trade.

    Very vintage Sperry Top Siders. My guess, '50s/'60s?

    That Hermes is kick-ass and the T&A is pretty sweet, too. Good score.

    Yes and that's my point. I'm no longer yielding to the temptation of 9.5 footwear. It's very disappointing when I put them on and they're too tight. :(
