    Thanks. Being in West Texas, I expect weird variety. We have LOTS of poor people, we have lots of people that dont wear suits, but otherwise have tons of money, and we have tons of older folks with big oil money. I guess checking out all of the shops makes sense.

    That said, I sorta feel like I'd be taking advantage of the shop/the people that _need_ cheap items. Hmm.

    Well, do those folks _need_ (or even know about or want) Brioni shirts?

    Oh this looks so nice! And one size up from me, unfortunately.... Maybe if I work out? ... and grow longer arms? Nice find, though! I've been looking for more summer jackets.

    Thrifted my first pair of selvage denim yesterday. Wasn't even really on the lookout, but since they had the denim right next to the cash register for some reason I stumbled upon them. They are a basically unworn pair of 511 MUSA raw denim, which uses the Cone Mills denim as seen in much higher priced LVC models. Too bad it wasn't on one of the recent $1/pair denim days! I think I'm going to go back and see if they have any more as I believe these may be a donation from an outlet as the size tag with model information was cut out.

    Ok, so, this is my first real post... for my most recent purchase: a pair of shell cordovan vintage Hanover derby brogues. 9C with what look to be the original laces (forgot to photograph with them in place). Not available, however, at least not yet. Except for what looks to be brown paint / wax on the sole they look to be in decent shape, though I have been trying to touch them up a bit and spot-condition as needed to restore some flexibility.

    I know they're not LB Sheppard's, but I'm still pleased with them. Query: Any thoughts as to their age? I can't seem to place them.

    Nice, can't believe it's NWT! It may have been a suit jacket (unsure), but still a great find! Oh, and that's Corneliani.

    Given the price on the tag, I'm inclined to say sport coat... a quick look on RL's website indicates suits typically go for a few hundred more than that (how sad is it I don't have a clue what regular retail even is). Now onto the important stuff... available?
