Good Lord, that is an eBay dream! Good for you! Have any of you tried an RG shirt on? I don't know how someone actually takes themselves seriously in one...I felt like I needed to wear at least two more rings and start speculating on which Central American government was stable enough to buy investment property in. They are pretty damn nicely made though...

nobody 'round here picks up chaps.

I think you are mistaken on the second HF. Hickey Freeman Collection is the mainline stuff. Full canvas, etc.

I stopped in at an independent thrift today that I hadn't been to in months. It was like nothing had changed.

Hadn't seen this before, but figured it was good, and it is(street wear). Size small- I'm convinced it's kid sized but I guess it isn't.

Kid sized you say......? peepwall[1].gif

I clumped around Valu Village today for about half an hour in some 12C Allen Edmonds Ashton-Orthotic Split-Toe Lace-Up Oxfords that were marked 10 bucks. I tried to convince myself that my size 10 feet didn't look like Bozo feet. The right heel on the Vibram sole was worn more than I felt comfortable wearing and the sides of the soles looked like scaly monster skin.

I left them. Some other guy who was eying them on me jumped on them. I like it when tough decisions are made for me. They were at least an inch too long for me. What was I thinking?



Also found a woman's Tissot watch for $15 but I couldn't verify that it worked. I need stronger reading glasses!

It's a lesson learned. I'm buying a very strong pair to keep with me for just that reason.

So...any watch people here?

I'm looking to see what the woman's Tissot was that I was looking at. It looked a lot like this but it had a date indicator, oddly located at 6 o'clock instead of 3 o'clock.



Any clue? I think I'll go back for it in the morning.

^^^^ are you serious? I'm quite sure they're all real, because none of them are worth a shit, sorry bro. (referring to dubc, not bytor) To Dig, BUY THE TISSOT!! Tissot is a decent watch, and regardless of model etc. it is surely worth more than $15. As a matter of fact, ill give you $30 for it. :)

Anyway. Back in town and stores are still dry. Only picked up the following Filson flat front chinos which are available. 40”W x 30”I:

Passed on these AE Bradley’s which are 7.5D. They were a little hammered and will need new soles soon. Also, the prior owner probably did not use shoe trees. I can go back and get them for a certain member here nod[1].gif :

IMG00557-20120823-1244.jpg

A lot of passes. A slew of PRL blue label pants, a Paul Stuart orphan coat and a nice BB Makers orphan coat; no luck on the pants. Also, passed on a NWT recent burberry tie with the jousting guy throughout. They wanted $9 for it. Too much, IMHO. Also, passed some nice PRL ties that were not new, but they wanted too much for them as well.

Shout out to Atljon, who hooked me up with some sweet shell PTBs. They’re gonna work brah icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif .
