Anyone interested in the upcoming weather and a very accurate forecast, follow wxrisk.com on facebook. Guy is on point with a ton of information. I am in no way affiliated with him but have followed him for years.

That's what I thought. Just wanted to confirm.

Mid-century modern home, 4300 sq ft, 6-8 car garage all for $280k?? Sign me up. Needs a little updating, but still. Wow.
Yesterday when I pulled into the GW parking lot, it was -8 with what was probably a -15 windchill. Parking lot packed. Most folks walking from their cars to the store with just a hoodie or light jacket. No hats, mittens, etc. Just another day in Minnesota....

That is amazing.  Crazy odd details in that house.  Those ceiling lights need to go.

Same reason I can sell a jacket that retails at $150 for $100 in a day and will probably take a week to get $150 for a $4000 Kiton (women's) blazer.  Demand driven VS quality driven.

On the success of the last one, I bought this shearling:

 

Cold weather?  This thing is redonk.  It's 2 down filled jackets inside one another.

 

Some other stuff from the last few days:

My only pickups on 1/2 price day:

J.Crew Italy, AE Monks, CH bench made in England

 

Flippa K

Chambray

Does anyone recognize this tag in a pair of PRL cords? I feel like I've seen it somewhere before. Or are they just trying to make it look similar to Incotex?

Yeah definitely reminiscent of Inco to me.

PSA
My local J crew had Chup and Ananymous Ism socks for $7 out the door. I picked up the last 5 pairs they had (the grove)

Not a bad deal.

They definitely feel nicer than other materials I've come across. I just figured they were trying to channel Incotex. These things are made in Indonesia... I suppose it's their high-end sweatshop? :nest:
