    Yep, all 16-41 (maybe a few 16.5-42 mixed in), and same initials.

    For everyone wondering, they're all available, but because of my living situation I can't get pics soon. I'd prefer to sell 5+ of them to each person buying at decent prices.

    FML. Oh to find just one T&A shirt..... ever!?!?

    nice work DM. you probably could have a mid-five figure job with your thrift finds. Serious question - is your inventory getting out of control or are you moving some of this stuff?

    DM7 is the Margaret Thatcher of the thrifting thread; a polarizing figure, for sure.

    Keep on trucking, you Iron Lady you.

    only found middling stuff today, but since i have literally no room for anymore clothing without the doors to my house exploding off, everything is available. send me a monetary offer and i'll probably say yes if you want it since I would like to deposit all of these things at the post office tomorrow. LET'S MAKE A DEAL! and hope i find better stuff tomorrow

    My thrift funds are currently depleted. I spent two hours at the thrifts today and passed everything I found since none of them excited me enough to go overboard.
    To satisfy mainy's hysteria crisis, name dropping: three pairs of Bally shoes at 14.99 each, a Church's split toe at 12.99, Ferre orphan coats 14.99 and 24.99, couple of very old BB, and Mani suits similarly unreasonably priced. Lots of BB shirts, couple of Armani etc shirts, pants but nothing worth buying if you are not buying to sell. As I said meaningless! and not brag worthy, and not mentioned since no pics- until I invest in an iphone
    This vintage beauty is from few weeks ago running in the shell not shell game in the other forum, bought expressly for that purpose.
    First what it is :

    Jury is out on the shell, but my research so far says not.
    Ad from 1956. Brand belongs to Hamilton Brown Shoe Company of St Louis, bankrupted and bought by Craddock Terry Shoe company of Lynchburg, Virgina . HB factory burned 76. Craddock and Terry bankrupted 80ies.

    I found a NWT T&A shirt once and thought I was king shit of eff mountain, but two trashbags full of freshly dry cleaned dead man's clothes is jaw dropping. That said, Nataku's Armani boots are a way sweeter find as far as I'm concerned. Money can only buy the clothes, style requires knowledge.

    They are my size. If I buy another pair of shoes, I might not have a home to wear them in.
