    Wow. What an awesome find. I never think to look at the local second hand/shift shops for shoes. I might need to rethink that. Well done!

    These beautiful Shell Cordovan wingtips from the late 1970s were found at a local Savers store. I spent an hour polishing them for looking like they were covered in red mold to this kind of dull shine. I think they're going to need a lot more elbow grease but they will come back eventually.

    They were made for "VAUGHN AT SATHERGATE". This is a defunct Menay store 3000 miles west of me, formerly in Berklee CA

    I do thrift from time to time. The only reason I do not is it consumes so much of my time I'm usually stuck. Haha! But seriously, there are lot of legit items that can be found while thrifting.

    so as one of the dappered Thrifting thread stalwarts, i wanted to say that I am back at it again. Haven't found a single thing LOL but it will eventually happen.

    I think the best I found was a set of UK Doctor Martens, Doctor Martens, Doctor Martens booots for my littler sister.

    Hi

    Recently bought a pair of Cordovan (!!) AE Grayson on eBay for $50.00 (!!!!) and an Alden for $60 .. The Alden are in near new shape... The AE from the pictures, look good.. New heel perhaps a recrafting ..

    I think I am done for the next 2 decades... for shoes

    Like new Burberry polo for I think $15 was probably my best score.

    I go once every couple of months. Recently bought a perfect condition Charles Tyrwhitt dress shirt for $2.50.
    I found the same shirt on their website for $140
    Their selection of dress shirts is usually pretty good.
    The Goodwill I visit is a few miles from a neighborhood with multi million dollar homes.

    $15 plus a new battery:



    All buttons work. It beeps. It lights up. It's pretty great.

    Scored a Ledbury shirt NWT for $26 at a Goodwill a couple of weeks ago:

    It fits about perfectly. Just wish I wore dress shirts more than a few times a year!

    Estate sale find that jives with the Dappered aesthetic (paid up at $125, but still):




    https://www.1stdibs.com/art/prints-w...E&gclsrc=aw.ds (That asking price is a little much, but is in the right ballpark I think)

    Now I just need to find a cheap way to frame it.

    Just picked up my first major thrift store find—AE split toe Delray for only $12.99. The things that look like blemishes are just dust. They are in near-new shape.

    Because they were so under-priced and it was a charity thrift store, I felt guilty, so I donated some money too--hey it's tax deductible.

    Almost didn't get them, because I need another pair of black shoes . . . but, what the hey--they are $425 on the Nordstrom website right now.
