Quick day road trip with my wife through some of Wisconsin yielded a few minor items but most importantly this pair of Braun L810A speakers that I'm listening to Steely Dan with one of our cats right now

Yesterday I found my first thrifted RRL non-denim. Today found one NWT. Few other cool finds, mainly vintage. Filson sweater that was shrunk down horribly, too. Left it.

^sink full of warm water with a dab of hair conditioner. Hand wash, lay out on a towel and gradually stretch as it dries to get the sweater to reshape. Don't pass on a nice wool Filson just from some shrinkage!

Salvageable? It was one of the the thickest sweaters I've ever held. Assumed it was mainly due to shrinkage.

lol no can't save that.

That's a fuckload of shrinkage (and pilling), but I bet it could be done. I had a Millar merino sweater that accidentally went in the washer/dryer with some other shit. It was like 20 inches long when it came out and I got it back to within an inch of what it was before.

This stuff works. I use it on my brunello sweaters when I hand wash them. It won't save that sweater though.

one could say that these were all free, but a lot of them were most likely very expensive. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Funny...hanging out on the thrifters thread mostly so am not even familiar with most of those members.

I put this in my personal closet over a year ago and reluctantly decided to sell it. I kept a corduroy jacket once before and just never got a lot of use out of it.




Found a bunch of Zegna shirts. I think they're all from the same guy. Two different hauls (one was a few months ago, one recently). Almost 40 shirts in total, all mint.

1.breath on it dew will disappear almost instantly as they retain no heat.

2.scratch glass

3. Black Light it will turn blue.

Quik ways.

 

Hope it's real!

 

3.... quality diamonds without fluorescence wont glow.  Not one of the "c's" but does play a factor in price especially if you get into the strong blues
