post #44671 of 117813
I'm sorry to see Frenchy go. Not only for his larger than life personality but for his furniture knowledge. I had some good luck this week at a SA and picked up part of a 1920's art deco bedroom/boudoir set in birds eye maple. Came with bed frame, night table, chiffoniere and seat. Pics on the weekend. The staff said that a team of 6 guys had stolen 2 matching dressers. Since it's not a complete set we got a great deal. I would have liked to have heard Frenchy's thoughts on it.

A quick stop this evening netted me an (ugly) Boss pinstripe suit for ebay/consignment along with a fantastic Samulesohn SC. Tagged 40R, it seems to fit more like a 42. I'll have to get measurements tomorrow. Double vented. Tagged Super 130s, it's got a really light hand. Second photos is closer to true colour. Need to get some photos in natural light.

If you're interested in giving it a good home, PM me.

Thanks. I needed a voice of reason. Shouldn't be buying anything anyways, but I had to make a return so... well... I was already there.

It looks like one of them swiped it with their marker. Is there any hope at all for this thing or should I just hang my head and take it back now?

I read that thread. Not saying that I condone or agree what Frenchy was saying at all. But I must question why Holymadness is not in permanent time out from his racist insults?

i dunno, i'll take some in your face racism over the thinly-veiled racist crap that comprises 90% of the posts in the CE portion of this site. when someone is overtly racist and stupid, you can at least say "hey dude, keep that crap to yourself or else we're gonna have problems." with the thinly veiled crap, you can't even bring it up, because otherwise the dude will passive aggressively say "what! race has nothing to do with this, i just think that {insert weak deflection here}. YOU'RE the racist one for even bringing race up in the first place!"

It'd be nice if the lawyers that populate this thread could replace those members with "clout."  I feel like our relative newbdom imparts us with more humor and general forgiveness than is expressed in other parts of this forum.   In this thread, we can argue about all nature of things, then a few posts later all roll our eyes and move on once our high horses become tired and pause for a drink of water.

Missed so much:

The average age of this thread is much lower than I thought.

Mainy and I have a lot in common. We are both 23 and started selling on eBay way before it was "legal" for us to do so.

Frenchy was banned frown.gif I wore a V-neck t-shirt today in his honor.

I wish racism didn't exist so I wouldn't have to hear people bitching about it EVERYWHERE. SHUT UP ALREADY.


On unrelated news...

Found my first ever "Extra-slim fit Brooks Brothers" shirt today. It's actually nearly slim enough to work.

Also picked up a project Bianchi with (mostly) Campagnolo parts...(105 derailleurs and shifters--sacrilegious co-mingling of components there).

No pictures. Too lazy.

Well said. This thread is the only one I consistently post in because I feel everybody here, for the most part, is pretty cool and laid back. That being said, we are all a bunch of savages compared to the dudes on AAAC.

Damn right.
I was quickly put in my place yesterday over at AAAC for daring to ask what the quality of Florsheims is like these days.

I couldn't wait. Picked this motherfucker up for cheaper than a shirt from J Crew. I'll be rocking it for the next couple decades. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Damn shame, I like that guy. He had more balls than a McDonnald's playpin!

Uggghhhhhh.....baldy[1].gif The sad thing is, I never even get to wear ties. What the fuck do I need all these for? cough "horder" cough......I'm sure a bunch of you have a ton more than this, still, for someone who wears a tie once in a blue moon, it's pretty ridiculous.
