I did, I bought some antique silver liberty bell ones off e-bay. I do like those though.

Been had NWT Armani Collezioni shirt, size 18 (I think) and some Majer chocolate flannel pants for me
Anyone a size 11D in AE's that wants / needs some black captoes, black medallion captoes, and black wingtips? They're all in meh shape and would take a good amount of work, but I'll proxy if you want 'em.
I've come to the realization that the only time I purchase items off of ebay, is when I want something bad and just can't wait to find it in a thrift. Case in point, I bought a pair of BB patchwork madras pants this summer because I couldn't wait to find them in a thrift. I know that one day I WILL find a pair, just like one day I will find something else I've been lusting after. I'm a firm believer that almost anything you've ever wanted, besides cars and such, can be found at a thrift, you just have to be there when it hits the floor.
I should add, not two days later, Horsesass sold me a pair of 70's PRL plaid madras pants with side tabs and all, so.......
Anyone know about motorcycle jackets? I saw one like this Clover Tekno WP jacket today... left it because I didn't know if there's a market.
I was never into the Locust, but Justin Pearson's current project, All Leather, is pretty great. Best show I saw in 2010.
I was pretty excited to find a reversible Moncler jacket yesterday, but by the time I hit the parking lot, the fleece lining and velcro pocket closures had me second guessing my purchase. Anyways, here are the details on what I pretty much confirmed is a fake...unless anyone else knows otherwise:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The sad thing is, I pulled it from the racks because it had a higher quality feel to it. Judging by the guides I've found online, they did a decent job on the logo patch, but the nylon chord cinch and velcro give it away (as I can't find any current legit models with either). Searches for Husky/Trevira tag lead to a website selling a similar Moncler jacket in Japan priced at ~$250. So, nothing to brag about, but I enjoy seeing the fakes sometimes too.
All passes this morning, but I'm willing to go back. Two suits, each of which I would have bought if there were in my size or if I wanted to get involved with ebay, which I don't.
Anybody a 46 XL? (Seems like someone is, but I can't find my notes.)
Jack Victor suit, small houndstooth pattern, very soft. content tag in the trousers was 40 XL. I snapped a couple of pics. Jacket is 2 button, single vent.
Click through thumbs if interested
The next one has a couple of issues. One - it is fused. Two - it has pretty bad sweat stains in the trousers waist band, and anything else that was white inside (pockets, whatever). Seriously, a lot of sweat stains. Maybe a little of the same on the collar of the jacket. That said, you can forgive a guy for sweating when he's wearing a three piece tweed suit, patch pockets, action back, belted back (belt isn't real, just sewn on). This thing is cool, and if anyone is willing to take a chance on what the cleaners can do and live with a fused suit, this would be awesome to rock. 43 R. It looks like in my hurry I didn't take an all over pic. Sorry about that. The very last pic is of one of the vest pockets. All these are clickable.
It had no name in it. jacket is 2 button, single vent. I'm happy to go get either of them for a regular. Shoot me a PM, I'll try to respond tonight.
Yeah, I liked some of those Swedish metal bands. I did like Bathory when I heard it. Lake of Tears were good, as was a band called Opeth.
Therion are a band I dig also... actually I really dig Therion!!!!!
I remember Napalm Death back in the day.... song title called "twist the knife slowly", will never forget it
My Dying Bride and Anathema were bands I preferred in this genre although they may not qualify as "grindcore", perhaps slow paced death metal would be more apt.
Goodness no, old stock I had from days when I used to wheel and deal in the UK with LP's.
Let's face it, this is why we all do what we do. This one got spotted and culled, but that doesn't happen every time. The cash/Viagra/codeine we've found in pockets, the shell Aldens for three bucks, the infamous Gucci croc loafers. If it was easy, everyone would do it. So quit whining about markups and the good old days and go thrift an Omega or some RLPL or some Edward Greens. They're out there.
