    Picked up a pair of Cheaney's today that had a fresh full resole. Could only tell they were Cheaney's by the size stamp. Then once I got em out in the sun realized that they must have been dyed black from burgundy or something because the original color was showing through. Couldn't see it in the store. Marked 10D, if anyone wants them they're available.

    Both of you, know what the fuck you are talking about.

    And if you want to hear about having no time to do anything, try walking a week in my shoes.

    Question - Anyone have any thoughts on Lubiam 1911 suits? I saw one, but it was too big and completed listings were all over the place. Also, I've been trying to spend less lately, especially on things that won't fit me!

    You can get anything you want for under $30?

    I've heard good things about them, and all of the Lubiam stuff I've found has been well made. I've heard LBM 1911 called the "poor man's Boglioli"

    Yeah, the quality seemed there, but I just wasn't sure what sort of demand there might be. Like I said, all I had to go on was completeds on my phone, and they weren't much help. Well . . If anyone's a 48L and wants me to check it out, hit me up for a proxy!

    Polo Corduroy Jacket w/ working surgeon cuffs.

    I don't know if it's still the case, but I believe they used to be more sports coats than suits... the one I have is nice, well made, good fabric, nice easily matchable pin stripe... for $8 I couldnt complain... has hair canvas in it too...

    Had a great day thrifting with Gmmcl, just a real, real nice guy. It was nice to talk about clothes in real life for a change. We had to the the racks with the quickness because of time constraints, but I still had a couple firsts today. First Maranella, first some other shit I can't remember, and also what are most likely the sexest shoes I've ever thrifted! Pictures tomorrow when I get them cleaned up, for reelz, these shits is hottttttt!!!!! Bout to make somebody with a 11.5 shoe size really happy!!!

    That comma completely alters the meaning from what I hope Spoo was trying to say to what it looks like he is says.
