Thank you.  So I guess when someone posted a picture of Robert Graham shirts he thrifted with the title "skeet", he was saying "I hate this crap, but people will buy it?"

I didn't even realize it, but yes, very nod[1].gif. The Woolrich was a one-off, I've found 1 US-made Woolrich and 1 Filson shirt in my life.

Edit: UK, Italy, Austria, and Germany represented.

Sounds vaguely German, but "kaufen" is to buy.

Returned the Zileri as they didn't fit as well as I'd like and the resale on them is no good. They put this on the rack just as I was checking the jackets. $10

Like thats literally their passion and almost like a personal challenge to get them working again.these guys look at schematics like some people look at Playboys.

 

 

This is true, lots are looking for a project. Also often times something simple like changing a blown fuse or cleaning pots and switches can bring it back to life. It's definitely an addiction.

"Sperm" and "purchase", respectively. You'll often see Robert Graham shirts referred to as "skeet blankets", hinting at their most useful purpose.

Jealous of everyone that was able to go out today. Stuck inside because of the blizzard. I'm on a dead end so the plow never comes down my street but I've been going through backlog rediscovering some stuff I have. Kind of counts as thrifting smile.gif

Replace sperm with ejaculate and you are good, bro.
