    I'm not...but my sons are...from their mother's side.
    PM me your adress , if you want it - when I took it home, it doesn't quite go with what I thought it would.

    Not exactly C&Js or Santonis but I gotta believe there will be some love among the older forum members for this thrifting find...

    ...vintage Frye harness boots with the square toe. Still in very nice shape although the previous owner appears to have tried to do a little antiquing as they appear to only have been shined with cordovan polish. They should clean up nicely.

    Also a paisley Etro tie that appears to never have been knotted.

    Truthfully I have never seen an underarm stain on a jacket. Or, are you talking about the inside lining? I can usually get small spots out of wool by rubbing the spot with a concentrated oxi-clean solution on a cloth, and then dabbing again with a moist cloth - gets rid of the spot without damaging the fabric.

    Vman,
    I bought an Oxxford odd jacket today. Its a very nice three button roll to two in a creamy tan, beautiful handwork...a great summer weight jacket. The trouble is it appears to have several faint and for the most part, small coffee stains. I normally would have passed but after reading your recent posts on stain removal I decided to risk the $3.99 and use it as a test coat. So, here is what I would like to know. What oxyclene do you use? Powder? How concentrated? How long can you leave it on the stain without affecting color? I'll post pictures later tonight and would appreciate your thoughts on how to proceed. Any help would be appreciated.

    Pictures added. Sorry it took so long.

    Is this the kind of thing you would attempt or is it asking to much?

    I ran across this probably ca. 1980s RL Polo wool tie with fringed ends (I'm a sucker for the fringed ends), then found the deer tie for my father (he'll appreciate the motif). My father doesn't really own any Important Neckwear.

    Not bad, but nothing to throw a parade over. Then I came across the tie on the left below, and must say I was pretty pleased. Then I saw the tie on the right, and thought "that's some nice silk", grabbed it and about fell over. I'm proud to be a member of the 2004 Chairman's Club. [​IMG] Who knows where such a Marinella came from.

    Amusingly, the RL Polo was the most expensive at $3.88.

    I found these Polo bench made in England wingtips today. Can anyone tell me anything more about them?

    [​IMG]



    Inside the shoe is printed 3357 3807 10-1/2 D 1911.

    Based on what I've read here I'm guessing they are C&J, but I have no idea what model/last. Any information would be appreciated.

    went to the thrifts found nothing , so I went to a mens consignment store here in Nashville called "hip to flip" and got a deal on three ties one is a 7 fold he let me have for $30.00 because of a previous deal we made , the other two I am not sure of the name but i loved the ties they were just $10 bucks a piece

    Not sure if this is the same 2004 Chairman's Club or not...

    ^Could be. I did a search for Chairman's Club and turned up a bunch of them. The one you linked seems west coast based, which would argue against it being this one. On the bright side, it firmly dates the tie.

    Yeah that is a great tie! And as you said you're assured that it's recent vintage... and it appears there are hundreds if not thousands of Chairman's Clubs around... I'd venture it was made for a successful, high achiever in the Financial Services or Real Estate industries! Now please sell it to me! I'll double what you paid for it!! [​IMG]

    I found two brooks brothers ties and one by Jos A. Banks that were $1.49 plus 50% off, at the goodwill today, I like finding ties like this cheap [​IMG] so when you wear them to work they look great and you are not too worried if you damage them I will post pisc later.[​IMG]
