    Can't remember who but someone on here was a fan of Carroll & Co (BH designer). I've a hanger from them. I know some of you like to collect so if anyone wants it let me know.

    I got a few PMs asking about those shirts I found recently that are a bit too small. The RT is marked 16/35, the EZ as 16(EU41) and the Canali at 16.5(EU 42). All three are in perfect condition and looked to be worn only a few times, if at all. Freshly dry cleaned too!

    LOL Carroll & Co isn't on my list... I'm mostly looking for "brand" hangers, not store hangers, with the exception of maybe J. Press... and I've got one of those but nothing to put on it so not even that right now! Find me a couple of Canali or Zegna or those DARK wooden BB hangers with the little golden emblem and then we can talk. [​IMG]

    First Alden find in GW. Got home and researched the style and discovered they are the plain toe blucher oxfords....shell cordovans! And they fit!

    Congratulations! Nice find!

    I don't get out much anymore but I had a few spare moments yesterday so I hit my small, "old faithful" shop on the way to school. Sure enough, they were rolling out a rack from the back that contained two Zegna for Neiman-Marcus suits in my size. One is a 2B and the other is a 3/2.5B. Both have side-vents. They are in fantastic shape other than needing a bit of tweaking fit-wise. It sort of made me miss the old days when I still actually needed stuff and great finds were a source of joy. Now it's like, "Oh, cr*p, how am I going to sneak these into the house?" [​IMG]

    Gents,

    Going to be MIA for the next week. My GMAT is on Monday so wish me luck and pray to God for me b/c I'm going to need it!

    GL thrifting.



    WGP, I'll make sure to look out for those.

    Cheers

    Size 11 (my size) burgundy cap toe brogue oxfords from Alden. Not sure what model they are. Got 'em for $7 at Salvation Army. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks like Alden 908, and appear to be branded for H. Stockton in Atlanta. The model number should be in the writing where the size is.

    Those are extremely versatile shoes to have. You can wear them with almost anything.

    Thank you AlanC! I was very surprised/delighted to discover them, especially in such good condition. You are indeed correct - they are the 908's.
