Hey guys, I just want to throw out a public thank you to everyone that has been keeping the ebay talk off this thread. It's made this a much more enjoyable thread for me to read. Cheers you crazy kids.

That's crazy... The best I can do is that I once saw a VW Bug (1960's version) flip over turning from First Street onto Montague Expressway. Dude was going way too fast. The car flipped a few times, guy is able to get out shortly before the car burst into flames. I have no idea when that was, but probably when I was in elementary school.

Is it just me, or has the quality of Aquascutum's ties taken a nose dive? I've found a few lately that just felt flimsy and weak.

Stopped buying Aquascutum a long time ago. Was never really impressed with the items I found in thrift stores (for personal or resale).

I second this. Good example of a brand that dropped standards and leveraged their name brand. That said, if there is a staple English made piece that fills a hole for me, I'll pick it up.

Met Sparrow yesterday. Nice guy. I knew he was operating at a reasonably high experience level when I saw him walking down the suit rack with his hands running over the fabric, rather than pausing to turn the labels on each one.

Found a few nice things yesterday. Pics later hopefully.

For now, there's a Versace tie in this bucket somewhere and it's visible. I will send a free tie to the first person who can guess correctly on the first guess which one it is. To keep things fair, we will do PM only; anyone posts here and the contest ends. (EDIT: Spoo and Sparrow can't play)

Vintage Brooks experts: Is this anything special?
I picked it up a few weeks ago because the label was different and much simpler, suggesting it was the good vintage stuff.

Quantity guaranteed.  I can't move a JAB to save my life, the joy of hundreds of followers.

Better than no Kiton at all, assuming it was cheap.  Great pickups.

One time I saw a gas tanker take an expressway turn to fast, jump over the barrier, fall about 2 stories and blow up in what looked like a small nuclear bomb. I was with my dad and we were going to fast to stop so we went right through the ensuing fireball. You could see the smoke for miles.

I also witnessed a woman try to commit suicide by jumping in front of the tractor part of a semi on the freeway. She ended up living and went to jail for quite a while for endangering other peoples lives.

Shoot, I forgot about the Grayhound bus fire in Amarillo, TX in June 2012. We were driving back across the country and passed the fire just as the Fire Department was getting there. That was some crazy stuff.
