    Wow, that's an awesome blackwatch duffle coat. Very easy to rock it.

    I love braces, helps keeping my pants in one place all day.

    Wow, awesome blog! I'm probably going to hold onto the hercules for this winter at least. 60+ years of wear have made it nice and soft.

    To all the thrifters here that shop for shoes....

    Do you guys pick up leather shoes with very tip of the toe that shows wear...specifically a little bit of peeling? Like if they kicked the corner of a table or something type.

    I left behind a pair of Leather Horsebit Loafers from Ermenegildo Zegna. and changed my mind at the last second because the wear on the toe, all though not horrible turned me off into flipping them. This and the price, they wanted $25 for them...I said Nevermind.

    The rest of the shoe was in good shape, but now im doubting my decision....

    What do you guys think...run back tommorrow morning? or Forget about them?

    Thanks! I have no idea what he actually wears to court, I just thought he might like it and since he has no boss at his office, there would be no reason to get worried about wearing something more conservative. From what he tells me, his clients are not the sort that are involved in white collar crime :nodding: I believe they're more the type to pay in cash for such services, so I doubt they'd be too upset if their lawyer was wearing an animal print tie in a meeting.

    Well hate to break the news to yah, but the BR is newer, no the old stuff...the "RN" number on the size tag puts it in company with GAP and Old Navy as they use the exact same BR #...still cool, but not the stuff Jesse is talking about.

    As for the Hercules shirt, probably early 60's just from the styling, tho I could probably do a label check to see when that version was used. Hercules was a brand name use by Sears into the early 60's. If it would have been cotton it would of been $ in Japan...probably still could get some $ even in the condition it in, even being wool.
