    I've seen that label on Canali dress shirts before, so I would assume its real but a bit old. Sounds odd though... polyester outerwear in the style of a sportcoat?

    I thought it was strange too, although it is definitely on the casual side. Almost like a warm-up suit but with a dressy flare. I didn't know the word polyester was even in Canali's vocabulary. I will post pics tonight.

    The terrible stitching, content tag I've never seen, and polyester content reek of fake to me. I'd be shocked if that turns out to be real.

    Yeah, and there's one for $36. I guess I spoke too soon.

    You don't have to find everything in a thrift. Support your local record store.

    check out discogs; I've picked up some decent stuff in great condition at reasonable prices. They're not thrift store prices, but are very reasonable. I've spent way too much time looking through the records at thrift stores and came up empty to even bother anymore.

    I can highly recommend Records By Mail / Craig Moerer in Portland OR. Great guy, huge selection, everything strictly graded. Another decent online place for vinyl is gemm, though some of the sellers don't grade using Goldmine or Record Collector standards, nor provide pertinent details.

    It's rare that I want to have carnal knowledge of a shoe. Rare. But not unheard of.
