    Hi

    I want to thank this community. I have scored some Allen Edmonds in incredible shape on eBay. To the extent that I will first take my chances on eBay first for my next shoes.
    I recently have purchased :
    A black Lake Forrest basically new for $100 shipping included
    a black Mc Allister in the same next to new shape for $75
    A walnut Strand in great shape for $50 (!!!??!!!!!) free shipping
    A barely used burgundy Park Place for $85 free shipping.

    The only new Allen Edmonds I have bought:
    A Warwick at Nordstrom Rack ( They surface there from time to time) new @ $115
    And a Brook Brothers Fifth Avenue equivalent that was on Sales on their Web site for $185

    I don't think I will ever buy new shoes going forward

    Way to go! You now have a better shoe collection than 90% of the men in the US and spent under $600--awesome.

    I never really liked how my Barbour fit. This was a significant upgrade for $30. I'll keep the Barbour around, but wear this till it disintegrates:

    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.

    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.


    Oh, and I found these two no-name Italian squares at Goodwill the other day (I never find pocket squares at GW).

    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!

    $15 plus a new battery:



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