I am in agreement with you on this; subaruing this morning was quite fun.

Anybody interested in a beat-to-hell Russian brown shell cordovan razor strop? Would make very durable watch straps.

 

 

 

 

This is an example of a mend I've taught myself to do. It looks puckered because I pulled the yarns too tight. It's on the back of the elbow, though, so not very noticeable. :P  I had two different tapestry needles with two different colored wool yarns, alternating between them to replace the broken stitches (about 6 stitches total). Can't do this without mega strong reading glasses.

Had a good run today. Everything is available except for the rice cooker ( already claimed by a friend) and the John Lee Hooker LPs.

Never pass up a good rice cooker. Tiger and Zojirushi are some of the best.

















Why must these fit so slim? ffffuuuu.gif Eu 52 L, fits more like a US 40.

Some modest finds today.

eThrift Briggs & Riley garment bag. Desperately needed for me, and paid "true thrift" price due to local pickup.

Orvis Briar Pants


(Fake) Hermes Jacquard Tie Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Canali Suit. Unfortunately some shininess from pressing, but fits me perfectly. I bought it to replace my Brooks Brothers 346 beater suit.*


Passport (defunct Saks house brand) suit.


* flippy talk: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm surprised at how well 346 suits do on eBay, to the point where I regret passing on some cheap ones. I should be able to sell my current 346 and easily cover the cost of the Canali.

Kind of thought it might be, thanks for confirming. Returnable, luckily.

What gives it away?

G shock looks good to me. What's throwing you off?

Absence of Casio on the face made me think twice, but one of mine doesn't say it either. How's the case back look?

The liner and keeper are wrong as well as the content tag.

The liner should almost always be the same color as the ties dominant color. The typeface on the keeper and the layout is wrong as well as other things. Glad it can be returned!
