Or blanket/throw.

the biggest scarf I have ever seen - 54" x 72".

IMO, looks to be a throw blanket which makes it even cooler!

Oops, not a double post just too much beer.

No brags, just blues today. Drove a hundred miles, nothing but a Billy Reid shirt to show for it :/ A few almosts, but everything was damaged or not quite right.

 

Vacilated on this Bric's duffle, then went back two minutes later to grab it but of course someone had scooped it up. (Which is fine, not that cool anyway.)

As an aside, I have a Bric's bag with this same leather - sort of a flat (not shiny) football leather, which shows marks like crazy - as in - lightly drag your fingernail across it and it leaves a very visible mark.  How to clean / remove marks?

Not sure but I think it's actually "PVC-coated cotton" not leather.

My attempt at humor - that big it becomes a blanket / throw.  Can't find the same colorway, but the PRL 100% mohair throw is typically one large.

 

ergh - meant RL, not PRL.  But y'all knew that.

It's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of friends, it's also a personal statement about the b(r)and itself.

Hahaha smile.gif

Not today but last year I did pick up an antique German-made, Turkish-style manual burr grinder. I knew eventually I'd find my machine.

Really?  Feels leathery, but so does my grandpa's chode so what do I know.  If so, Bric's should be ashamed for charging that much for a leather-trimmed plastic bag.  Who do they think they are?  Coach?

so the big question is, keep or sell? If you keep, man you must love some fucking espresso.

I think @Orgetorix found an awesome old machine a few years ago that he rehabbed but I don't think it was quite this fancy.
