The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2792post #41866 of 578928/1/16 at 4:38pmpost #41867 of 578928/1/16 at 4:43pmQuote:
I think you're right. I was pretty sure there was a "sh" sound in it somewhere. HighVoltaire could just be the next evolution of my name. It started on the Ultimate-Guitar forums as HighVoltage when I was 13 and super into AC/DC. Then when I got out of that phase (I kept the red SG at least) I told my friends I needed a new name and one of my friends said "high voltorb" off the cuff without thinking. Voltorb is a pokemon for those unaware. So now I just have to start reading a lot of Voltaire to justify the name change haha.post #41868 of 578928/1/16 at 4:44pmpost #41869 of 578928/1/16 at 4:53pmpost #41870 of 578928/1/16 at 5:38pmGreat couple days for me. Tons of cool vintage, plus this stuff...
Kickass Tommy nautical vest.
Silk/cashmere sweater by....
Weird-ass RLX jacket.
Lastly, anyone know a good place to figure out model #s on scuba stuff? Got this Scubapro regulator for dirt cheap and I'm trying to figure out more about it.post #41871 of 578928/1/16 at 5:51pmpost #41872 of 578928/1/16 at 5:53pm

Or become a master of this pinpost #41873 of 578928/1/16 at 5:56pmThread Starterpost #41874 of 578928/1/16 at 6:12pmLooking for an LV keepall/weekender (prefer classic brown print, but would consider black or brown damier print pending price/trade of course)... cross posting to thrift buy/sell/trade thread as well. Would prefer to trade for it - please take a look at what I've got listed, plus have lots of backlog.
Need it in the next week or two if possible. Thanks in advance all!post #41875 of 578928/1/16 at 6:21pmpost #41876 of 578928/1/16 at 6:43pmpost #41877 of 578928/1/16 at 7:34pmQuote:Originally Posted by bpk1

Anywhere else in the world/internet except this thread, this would seem like a totally ridiculous request. I love this thread.post #41878 of 578928/1/16 at 7:36pmpost #41879 of 578928/1/16 at 7:55pmQuote:
I have. It takes me about an hour, and I suspect I could get it down to less with as much practice as TieCrafters has. That's a pretty decent hourly rate, even for skilled labor.
N.B. this is standard 3 fold lined.
Presumably multi fold, hand rolled would be orders of magnitude more complex, and I suspect they charge way more Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)Which actually leads me to a rant about Luxire. Sold me a RTW tie. Billed as 59 inches long. Arrived at 63 inches, with fade spots. Asked for a replacement. Telling me I have to pay. SO not happy. I get that customer pays returns is their policy, but I can only live with that if they have decent QC. But they don't -- their QC has been absolutely murdering me for a while.

That and they're cheap bastards. Cap is the only one I know (stress on I know) able to squeeze a decent buck out of them for vintage suits. I've had incredible hand made stuff in pristine condition, and the bastards offer me $30 for it. It's like a time warp where they still think it's 1965 dollars.
In other news:
Is $600 a lot to pay all at once? Yes.
Is $15 per tie a very fair deal for Brioni, Kiton, Borrelli, Isaia, Marinella and Cappelli ties? You bet your ass it is.post #41880 of 578928/1/16 at 9:12pm
