Damn I can't spell. This is your listing?

lol no. but i've often wondered if folks like Linda aren't playing some subtle long game.

 

i was just joking. in fact i think i have a tendency to "over-list" (i enjoy exposition!). but, it seems to work.

I think it was the $20 curling off the Samuelsohn pants that really sent my noobrage over the top...

(this is true of vintage tees as well but for slightly different reasons - some of them sort of rot from the dyes in storage and they'll blow up when you pull em over your noggin)

maybe somebody who knows about this stuff (@Bahljs
) can provide some insight? 

I've heard that, I watch a lot of sneaker videos on YouTube (not those idiotic vlogging ones).

If a pair of '84 Jordan 1s are regularly worn they'll survive, but yeah. If a shoe is stored then worn they'd fall apart.
Nike Dunks and blazers are my favourite sneakers, and I'm trying to find original pairs of both from the 70s/80s (good luck, right?)

Also in the market for (all UK9) grape 5s; white and black, infrared, carmine and maroon 6s. bred, royal, shattered backboard, all black/gum 1s.

The 1923 line was a 90 year anniversary special where they used top shelf fabrics and more handwork (close to Isaia quality).

Thanks! Looks like they also gave out free $20s with them too. smile.gif

Saturday

boss, RT 7 fold, S Ricci, Gams

Corn flannel

AG, more corn, Saturday selvage

Triumph jacket

Paul smith drawstring, RLPL cinch sides, Isala

 

 

Puma lambskin

rg, lanvin, brioni

 

 

P&S, LVC, Boss silk

never heard of this, but was too well made to leave behind, especially how mint and cheap it was.

Guess it was a good call.  Thought of Spoos kop first, ask questions later on this one.

Triple Aught Design http://store.tripleaughtdesign.com/Praetorian-Hoodie

 

Another leather patch crew, 5lb chunky shawl collar and Tony Lama elephant

AE, Gucci

Gah.

Jeesh.

Saw a bunch of these types in one store, like someone had been fooled by each knock off name.
