    Almost brand new JOHNSTON & MURPHYS ARISTOCRAFTS 10.5 M worn maybe once,no heel wear whatsoever.can now be seen in B&S

    "Maybe once"? Look at your shoes:

    Now look at these new shoes:

    There's no way your shoes have been "worn maybe once" or "are almost brand new". Unless the one time they were worn was during an intense marathon.

    Found a heavy leather NWOT RRL belt today at a goodwill. Kind of a strange design though..not one of their vintage models and the configuration and small buckle made me wonder if was a women's belt. Will post pics shortly (and may post in the RRL thread to get some answers).

    Had the day off so spent the afternoon thrifting. Live in a pretty hopeless area as far as thrifting goes, but still managed to find some good stuff. A soft BB black/grey herringbone coat, Gant shirt, Charcoal Pendleton pants that are probably getting sold(a bit too big), and a reversible Bally's belt. Also saw an amazing red/black cashmere herringbone Etro tie, but it was too beat up to be saved. Was only $2 too, oh well. Saw a few Gant and Gitman shirts too that I passed over.

    my unfortunate streak of finding beautifull orphaned suit coats in my size continues...
    todays heartbreak was a super 120s/cashmere blend, charcoal pinstripe, double breasted, surgeons cuff Isaia. I've never found Isaia before.[​IMG]
    A good but frustrating few days.

    The frustrating: 3 awesome suits, a Zegna charcoal pinstripe, a fantastic Lou Myles charcoal chalkstripe heavy flannel double breasted and a gorgeous Pal Zileri Abito navy pinstripe single breasted peak lapel all in mint condition, all my size...... and all missing the pants[​IMG]

    Found some Dexter Navigators Made in USA. Not sure how old they are but have the knot on the leather instead of the new wierd symbol.
    They were nicely broken in and fit amazing the soles are in great shape. Paid $10. I love them!

    Just this last weekend I saw the same thing at one of my regular stops. They had about 10 Zegnas, 3 Oxxfords, and a few Hickeys, all of which were gone a couple days later. You'll probably see some ebayer selling a bunch of orphaned jackets soon.

    Did you check the pants section? Sometimes suits get separated, but remain together in the same store.

    ^^Good point. I always check the trousers section. Also, check the women's pants section too. I found the trousers for the Zegna Napoli Couture suit I recently found in the women's pants section.
