I know I owe a thrift post one of these days but thought I would toss this one up...well...I figured someone here would be into it.

 

 

 

 

 

Phone and shitty lighting fucked with the color, it's vibrant, totally mint, huge and from the 1960s. Handrolled and even still has original tag attached. Apparently quite the collectors item, according to asking prices across the internet.

 

 

Oh and don't worry, it's in my response, thus waiting in your inbox.....

Peccary? I know Gravati uses peccary on a number of their shoes, more than most companies I've seen.

Org, I'm almost positive they are too big for you. The blue one is on it's way to Spoo, but I can measure the checked one if you'd like. fistbump.gif

Killer fit by the way Hans!!! Love that scarf! Here's one I posted over on the SW&D WAYWT thread yesterday. Our good friend Irksm thrifted the Rick Owens jacket which was part of a rather large trade between us. Thanks again dude! The rest is Dries Van Noten.

Thanks! Seriously though, love that ^.

Oh, and I sent you an SMS re: buttons, though I'm not sure you need them any more.

Soak the rest of the garment in coffee overnight.

It’s time for our 5th annual Thrift Thread Gift Exchange!

Many of you have participated in the past and know how it works, but others are new to the scene. Read below for all of the pertinent information!

If you’d rather not read all of the information, here are the key points:

  • In order to participate, you must have a minimum of 100 posts. These posts can be anywhere on StyleForum, not necessarily in the thrift thread. No exceptions have been/will be made for those with fewer than the required number!
  • As we have done in previous years, a $5 donation to StyleForum’s favorite charity (The Ronald McDonald House) is required. Payment will be made to me and I will donate all of it once StyleForum opens their donation drive in December. If you’d rather not participate, but would still like to donate, that’s fine! Last year we brought in $415!
  • You will need to confirm to me by 13 October that you’re in this year. I will need your name/address, even if nothing has changed.
  • Please post a photo and thank you of what you receive. It’s fun to see what everyone receives! A thread will be created to do that!


Timeline:
  • Register (PM me) by 13 October 2016
  • Send ALL gifts by 1 December 2016

Donation:
I don’t want to put an email address on here, so please contact me. To make my life easier, please send all donations as USD$$, no matter your local currency. My PayPal account is denominated in euro, so it’s easy to see the total donation amount when it’s in USD.

What it’s all about:

The thrift thread gift exchange is just that...a gift exchange among the voluntary members of the thrift thread. You will receive the name/contact information of a fellow member for whom you will buy a gift or gifts. The gifts can be thrifted, discount purchased, or retail, but the recommended maximum spending limit is $25 + shipping.

We have a timeline for registering for the exchange and when gifts should be sent.

It’s that simple!

This is the fifth year we've done this, and I have to say I still have some awesome stuff that I've received over the years. I have books, ties, pocket squares, pants, etc. Having said that, the real fun is just trying to find something you think someone else will enjoy.

FAQs

How do I get involved?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Send me (HansderHund) a PM with the following information:
Name
Address (home or office is fine)

How do I know I won’t get screwed?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You (nor I) don’t. We’re all relative strangers, so it’s really banking on the goodwill of other members. I don’t vet participants other than by post count. Having said that, it’s been overwhelmingly successful up to this point as far as I know. Aside from a couple of members not receiving their gifts (but were later compensated), we’ve done well. That means we’ve had hundreds of strangers exchange gifts via postal service around the world based only on trust.

Why do I have to pay you $5?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Once you send me your name and address, I’ll send you a PM telling you to send me $5. I will hold onto these funds until December when StyleForum opens their charity drive that benefits the Ronald McDonald House. Last year, we were able to raise $415! The $5 shouldn’t be a huge deal, but it is a mandatory requirement for participation. If I don’t have your donation in before drawing the names, your name will be removed from the list.

Does the person that I have also have my name?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
No. It’s a drawing of names, so the only time two people will have one another is by chance. This happens occasionally.

How are the names drawn?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I divide the list into half and give Capnwes the half that includes my own name and I keep the list that has his. We then draw a name for each person at random.

What if I don’t like/need my gifts?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This is important: you are free to do with your gifts what you want. That means you may sell, trade, use, throw away, donate anything that you don’t like or need. No one should have their feelings hurt if they see their gift passed along in a trade or listed on ebay. It’s hard enough buying things for people you know well, let alone strangers, so try not to feel too bad.

What should I get my member?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Whatever you think they will like! If you know/have had contact with your member, you have an advantage. However, if you don’t know them, stick to safe items.

Some easy suggestions are:
Ties
Pocket squares
Books
Shoe polish/laces
Braces
Shoe trees
Wallets/small leather goods

You can of course go for anything sartorial of your choosing.

How much do I have to spend?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
No one will know how much you actually spent, so you’re free to spend as little or much as you want. The recommended maximum is $25 before shipping, but whatever you feel comfortable with spending is most important.

Will I have to ship internationally?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Possibly! By signing up for the gift exchange, you’re agreeing to send a gift to someone. We have active members across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia (possibly other locations, for all I know). International shipping will obviously be a bit more expensive than domestic no matter where you are, but it isn’t required that you ship anything EMS/Priority.

What happens if I don’t get my gift?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Anyone that hasn’t received a gift by 1 January 2017 is free to contact me and I will hand over the user name of the person that was supposed to send you a gift. At that point, you’re free to contact them or blast them on the thread. Let’s keep in mind, though, that we’re not talking about thousands of dollars/euros/pounds, but rather €/$/£20-30.

What if I live in a sartorial wasteland and can’t find anything before December?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
As a last minute gift, you can always have gift cards sent from Amazon, ebay, etc. Additionally, you can buy something online and have it sent directly to your member.

What if I don’t want/need a gift?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
That’s no problem. Choose your favorite charity that accepts online donations and I’ll direct your person to donate $25.

Can I make a list of what I want/don’t want?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I recommend you edit your StyleForum profile to reflect your sizes and preferences. Outside of that, feel free to post your list inside the thread. Due to time constraints, I won’t be able to relay information between members.

Who will receive my address/information?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Your gift exchange partner, Capnwes, and myself.

It burns when I pee, what should I do?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
A burning sensation during urination can be caused by a bacterial infection, especially gonorrhea. I recommend you see your GP as soon as possible.
