All good, dude! Selvedge will look like this:

 

 

Doesn't have to be red. The seams are very distinct, though.

So im thinking about buying a pair of Crockett and Jones shoes in shell cordovan second hand, they are a bit pricy and kind of beat up. What do you guys think, will i be able to fix them up or are they screwed?

Love these old PRL sweaters.

Recent finds...

Not sure why the picture is so terrible. Jacket from Regent. Regent would be the German equivalent of Oxxford.

This dreamboat is 100% silk and also Regent. Size 50, available.



Since pick stitching is often mentioned and we talk about misidentifying machine work for hand stitching, I thought I'd include a closeup of this jacket. This is done by hand. You can see how it's a bit uneven and it doesn't stand out.



Regent wool/mohair suit



Spring/Easter ties

I've never found real money, only coins. I grabbed a pair of pants to shoot and bam, found that in the pocket!

I went from never have even seen a Hermes tie to maybe two in one day? I have my doubt about this one as there was no other label but again construction seems good.

What do you guys think? If it's real I think I'll get a lottery ticket haha or at least play Roll up the Rim

In the field and can get a Niles GXR2 multi zone receiver with Sirius for $25z ebay is all over the place. Looks to be in good condition, but I haven't powered it up and coulsn't test it if I did. Ehat do y'all think?

I'd do that in a heartbeat. I found one of those several years ago and sold it for like $400.

Thanks to @Koala-T and Nat, I know a. what store to avoid after work today because it's already cleaned out, and b. not to skip obscure Nils hardware.  They must have repriced that too, was way, way more than $25 when I saw it + I assumed Sonos had made multi-zone receivers obsolete.

Thanks, but I missed a 1 in front of the 25. So they actually wanted 125. Could still be worth it I guess, but a lot of risk.
