thrift score

So today I hit up a couple of local thrift stores and had two major scores.

These are my new favorites, and are proof that my menswear obsession may be getting out of control. These are mens shoes, vintage (I think) and to me they feel very English Dandy. I love them. They're a tiny bit big, but since they're narrows, they're very close to fitting. Found them at a local thrift store for $4.




I found this vintage sealskin coat on the rack at Salvation Army and it didn't have a tag. When I took it to the register I asked how much it would be, she said "$10." I was fine with that (vintage sealskin! In very decent condition!) and said "ok" but then she looked at the lining and was like, "Make it $5." I didn't argue.
Yes, you read that right. Vintage car length sealskin for $5. As you can see in one of the pictures, the lining is coming loose around the wrists, but I'll be able to fix that. Other than that, the fur itself is in beautiful condition, and based on the lining and the styling I THINK this is from the fifties.
