I came up on a similar jacket a few years ago for $3, sold it. And regret it. Is this 100% lambskin?

Can anyone help me on some info for these Danner boots? Patina is amazing. Wish they weren't twice as big as my foot. Maybe a @Fueco question.

Feels like a soft buttery leather. It runs a little large and look goofy on me or I would probably keep it!

I've done worse I suppose.



Size 42R with 36 trousers.




Feels like a 42 as well.

A few recent finds.  I haven't had much time to take pics, but have a few. 

 

It has been SHOES recently: (possibly some repeats) 

 

To Boot New York Cap toe 11.5 

 

 

 

Park Avenue 10.5D 

 

 

 

 

Mezlan Deerskin and Leather Cap Toe

 

 

 

Vintage J&M Aristocraft Saddle Shoes 9.5 

 

 

Zegna 100% Linen Shirt 

 

 

E-Thrifted Oxxford Silk and Wool SC 

 

 

 

Vintage Lacoste Corduroy Harrington (this thing is great!) 

 

 

 

Vintage Louis Roth FU Plaid SC

 

 

 

ETON 100% Linen Shirt (MINTY!) 

 

 

 

Here's a Swish I am proud of: 

 

Bulova Millenia 96C21 Minute Repeater Complicated Movement.  This thing does everything and has SO MANY hands and 6 different modes.  It took me a manual and an hour to set everything.  I think it might be like HAL in 2001: A Space Oddysey, it might take over my life and keep me hostage. 

 

 

 

Another Swish-- 1939 Girard Perregaux "Shell Oil" promotional Skeleton pocket watch.  These pics are so lousy and this watch is so amazing! 

 

 

 

Fodder NEW Florsheim Loafers -- yes, they are cheesy, but they were $2 and they SELL! 

 

 

 

 

A mini thrift fit 

 

For the Tassel Loafer lovers (like myself).  

 

Decided to wear these today.  Other stuff not seen was also thrifted. 

 

BB 3/2 Sack Suit, BB Stripe point collar shirt, Brioni tie, Ralph Lauren real croc belt 

 

ALL THRIFTED

Hey guys,

Potential ethrift or personal use (if you're 40S).

Samuelsohn sport coat:

http://www.saksoff5th.com/regular-fit-multicolored-plaid-wool-%26-silk-sportcoat/0492450443849.html?scrollTo=900&href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.saksoff5th.com%2Fmens-new-popular-80-off%3Fprefn1%3Dbrand%26srule%3DBest%2520Sellers%26prefv1%3DCorneliani%257CSamuelsohn

List price is $178, but you can get an additional $30 off if you sign up for their mailing list.

So $148.

I expect my cut in the mail lol

It's like I hopped in a time machine back to the 60s.

 

Brooks Brothers 3/2 flannel suit, dated 1964. Jacket has a couple small issues. I think this one is worth looking into reweaving, will investigate. 

 

 

 

 

 

1963 Look Magazine. Not worth much, but I love finding stuff like this for myself.

In the spirit of being thrifty but cognizant of value, I need some help choosing a car insurance provider. Any reason not to just quote out allstate, state farm, amica, and the other few national brands and choose based on price at that point? Any of the big names you'd immediately cross off the list? Just looking for single car and renters insurance.

Doesn't someone here work for Nationwide?

It's going to be different depending on your state and car. I think you'll be fine just quoting the majors. I had no issues with Progressive claim-wise. They were by far the cheapest when I had a VW Golf, but once I got a new car, I saved a lot of money by switching to Geico. More than the advertised 15%. Make sure you are comparing apples to apples (same coverages).
