Personal, non-thrift-related ask: My site (thriftygent.com) has either been hacked or by some other means been infected with some malicious code. It sometimes causes browsers to throw up warnings when people visit my site, and when I try to access it from any network with a decent firewall, it's blocked. I have no idea how to figure out what the problem is, or how to fix it. I scanned for malicious code once and tried monkeying with the results, and darn near broke the...
Dude, it says "Grails" right there on the tag! How much more reassurance do you need?
No worries! It probably arrived early last week, I was just out of town until this weekend.
Shoutout to @DanM for a great thriftmas trade box - some awesome Ben Silver and BB ties, a linen jacket, some vintage Florsheim shell gunboats, and my favorite item: this AWESOME vintage Brooks Brothers red vest. I was just thinking two weeks ago how much I'd like to have one like this for Christmas. I love it!
The boots I mentioned earlier that were mis-described, I requested a refund, seller refused, I opened a case, and Ebay decided in my favor. The email I got from Ebay didn't say anything about sending the boots back, though:Does that mean Ebay paid for the refund? If so, I guess I'll just keep the boots and do something with them. But if the seller ate it, I feel like I ought to get them back to him.
Vintage (50s/60s) Dobbs
I used to pull $10 AEs, shells, and 30s-40s vintage out of there every time I went in. Stock has been depressed and prices have been inflated for at least three or four years now.
I don't know. I don't wear that size, and unfortunately I'm not going to risk giving my brother-in-law a present that has a high chance of not fitting.
Another problem in the neverending saga of tagged sizes vs. "fits like," but this time I'm the buyer. (Hope the seller isn't any of y'all.)Won a pair of boots (these) to give as a Christmas present for my bro-in-law who wears size 10. Title says size 10, and they're listed as size 10 in item specifics, so they showed up when I filtered for size.Got them today, and the tagged size is 8.5. Thought, "WTF?" and went back and looked at the listing. Only then did I see the...
Yeah, Zegna and Isaia. Think their Oxxford is MTM only now. None of the stuff I mentioned above.
