    Those Supras would be pretty cool if you could paint them white and still maintain that slight waffle effect or whatever is going on up there...

    Also, guys, c'mon -- in a show where people bite it routinely, just posting character names is a big spoiler.

    I am not sure about these, not something I see myself wearing, but for 50c thought I might as well pick them up. Both are showing a bit of wear where they would knot. Do people wear these ties??

    That is a truly great haul, and from the angle of the shot, those MacNeils look like they could be shell. Are they? Also digging the whale tie.

    Thanks! I love the whale tie and the duck shirt (so much so that I am actually considering getting a PRL shirt tailored to fit)...I wish the MacNeils were shell, but they are just regular cow. I have no luck with finding shell, I am constantly amazed at the consistent shell cordovan finds...either I need to get out more or they just aren't that popular in my area.

    Matching pocket square for your tie:

    [​IMG]

    Not sure why I keep picking these up, I haven't actually ever worn a pocket square. But I now have a collection of about a dozen and a linen napkin I thought was a pocket square.

    That one looks like a scarf. The ideal length for a pocket square is I think 17".

    I have a random question and I don't really venture out to anywhere else on the forum very much. You guys are the only people I know who could answer me. Does Ferragamo ever use US sizing on their shoes? I thrifted some loafers a while back stamped with 8.5. I wear 8.5. They fit like a glove. This guy on eBay is telling me I have the wrong size after I sent him the measurements of the insole. He says they're an 8, but if they really weren't US sized they should be more like a 7.5 and I shouldn't even be able to fit them on my feet.

    Sorry for all the numbers. Thanks in advance. I still need to sell those cufflinks.

    No love for my Polo Tweed?



    Auction brag!

    The guy selling the jukeboxes was a little peeved because he said he can sell them for $1800 and most of the ones sold at auction went for half that. He has a ton more that he'll auction closer to Christmas time to try to drive up the bids.

    We're in the process of tracking down its former home via the serial number. Hopefully, it's this one: http://www.accessatlanta.com/news/e...-faces-trial-over-waffle-house-brawl-1/nQ4kH/

    It's loaded with 200 classic rock, country, terrible pop and Waffle House hits on a combination of 45s and five CDs. I think we'll keep most of the records, but will definitely change out the "Grammy Nominees 2006" CD.

    I am not sure I am following. Is he saying that they are UK sized? Because Ferragamo, in my experience, will only ever be marked in US or EU sizing, especially if found in the US/Canada. If it helps, personally I wear an 11-11.5 and all of my Ferragmos are the same. Does this help at all?

    Yeah, I guess there's no reason they should ever be UK sized although I see eBay auctions of similar shoes here and there where the size listed doesn't always match the size stamped. I think this guy's just off his rocker. Thanks.

    Will be going through my "Pocket Square collection" with a tape measure and see if I have 10 squares or some scarves and squares mixed...

    Wow! Those are some very impressive shoe finds. I'm willing to bet the Westons, Stefanobi and Lidforts were from the same owner. I just can't imagine more than one person donating slightly obscure, high-quality shoes like that to a thrift store unless you're in LA or SF.
