Oh, and the score for Venture Brothers is badass too

 

I'm not JG Thirlwell (a/k/a Clint Ruin a/k/a Foetus) - he's been a friend for about 20 years, I started his website around 1996 and maintained it until recently. Even he is not familiar with his entire catalog - many hundreds of entries in his discography last time I updated it.  Worth discovering some of his other works, if you're so inclined - pretty much runs the gamut insofar as styles / genres / what-have-you.  Nice to meet a fellow appreciator here.

Size on bwn saddle shoes?

One stop today netted me these Peal & Company for Brooks Bros captoes, sz 8.5. Uppers are in good shape.

The future owner will have to get these puppies resoled. The insole has not worn down, though. Only one shoe has the hole.

Weird. I was just listening to Foetus last night. Never expected that name to come up in the thrift thread. Awesome stuff!

 

Also I have to disagree about Chromatics being album of the year. For me it's between Swans, Jizue, or Death Grips. It's a good album though.

Dan...I'm in the Nati. Found a pair of AE's the other night as well. Also passed on a few pairs that were beat. Nice finds on yours. The one thing I never see here is Alden's.

Also if you are looking for anything shoot me a PM. It would be nice to have a local to trade with.

$400 on their site: http://www.sierradesigns.com/p-445-mountain-parka.aspx

I know at least Apolis and Pendelton have done collabs with Sierra Designs on that parka.

Are dimples not appropriate for wedding ties?

Anyone here a size 12D ?
I picked up a pair of square toe alden cape cod collection shoes with vibram soles.
They're black
I'm pretty sure I can get them to you for less than $50 shipped.

I am in no way affiliated with this auction and I know it doesn't really belong in this thread, but I ran across this thing tonight while searching ebay and it's frankly just begging to be owned.

NWT vintage Woolrich Red Plaid Hunting Jacket and matching pants

If I had more occasions to look like a badass lumberjack, I would have already pulled the trigger.

No telemarketer has made it past ten seconds--they all hang up pretty darn quick. One actually called back, demanding that I explain myself.
Before settling on Kate to serenade the telemarketers, I debated using Territorial Pissings by Nirvana but ultimately decided that pests did not deserve anything resembling quality. As soon as I get a copy of Loving You by Minnie Ripperton, I will use that. But I cannot, in good conscience, download that song, presuming it's available--the Internet lasts forever, after all, and I do not want anyone to find out that I spent money on Minnie Ripperton. The thrift stores will provide in the end. They always do.
Hope this clears things up.

wuss! lol

I tend to find that if i've asked them to not call back. the most effective thing is creating a feedback loop using both wireless handsets (mouthpiece to earpiece and adjust the distance apart til it screams)... of course since most of them wear headsets... there's no escape...

Today was a thrifting day from hell. Literally the worst day I can remember in a long time.

Started off ok. Found a RLPL casual L/S shirt, an Etro cashmere sweater and an Etro L/S button-down. Cool? Yeah. Well, as I'm looking at the Etro sweater a arm reaches over my shoulder and plucks a jacket from the rack. Literally from in front of me. Going by the quality of what I had just found, I wondered what it was that had been grabbed. Turned around and it's this 6'1 tall bovine shaped woman who is notorious for flipping. Literally hoovers up anything of any value in her path and is extremely rude/aggressive. Glared at her and walked away. At this point I'm pissed but shrug it aside. I'm usually pretty mellow. 15 minutes or so goes by and she wanders by me, really slowly with the jacket literally inside-out with the label clearly visible. A large "Loro Piana" label stares me in the face. Loro f*!&cjd#!* Piana. I got a closer look at the jacket too. Looked like tan micofiber (but could easily be wrong) with a brown corduroy or suede collar. What a slap in the face. She literally flaunted it around the whole store, draped over her arm with the label exposed for a good hour.

She left and I found nothing more. Decided to go to a garage sale on the other side of town to try and get my mind off her and the jacket. Got there and lo and behold there she was. Ugh! Garage sale was a bust. Hit 5 more thrifts and ran into another notorious flipper. Great.

I cannot believe some people.....

Will do. But you'll have to wait until the second one I find, because I too am looking for this...

All the Oxxfords I've posted in recent history are 44.

I think if that's anywhere near a 38, we should work on a trade for one I've posted... I'll even throw in one of the D'avenza twins.
