Very jealous. You'll get a lot of wear out of those. I got my PRL flannels half off last year and can't wait til it gets cold enough so I can bust them out.
Went at lunch as usual...

I might try making one down the line, but have too many other chores on deck at the moment.
I had a hard time visualizing this at first as well. The pull forms one loop of a chain. You want to create another link with some thread.
Tremble at my mad drawing skills.
Had to dig to find my source: bengal-stripe
Wow, that is a lot simpler than what I was visualizing in my head. Thanks!
And this sweet PRL tie.
Speaking of multi-folds, nobody commented on the patterns of the two I thrifted: what say ye, keep or try to move 'em on? Photos spoilered below. Hint hint, nudge, nudge. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Gahhhhh, all the stores around here besides the SA's are having Columbus day sales, no thank you! I did manage to stop into a SA I don't usually hit. Picked up a stack of Jazz records as well as a pristine copy of the Beatles 1962-66, a mint copy of Thriller and some Pretenders albums.
And this sweet PRL tie.
I like everything you posted, but if you're gonna post "stack of jazz records" you have to at least spread them out a bit so that we can see them!
Your wish is my command, there is also some Vivaldi, Go Go's, Herbie Hancock and Dire Straits mixed in there.
I passed on a bunch more due to condition issues.

first time in a thrift store in months (been really busy with work with the refinance boom happening) and i snaked a mint pair of Alden for brooks brothers shell cordovan tassel loafers. Unfortunately they're a bit small @ 9.5D lol also passed on a near new pair of burgundy AE McAllisters in 13ee. can go back if there's any interest.
Sent you a PM but im interested in the Aldens...
Re the Hermes tie: Okay, um, I've had one of these (the red Faconee H) in my closet for 2 years... what the hell makes it so awesome or rare? Seeing a completed like that makes me think maybe I should just liquidate my Hermes ties... I'm much more into Kitons and Borrellis and other often-found-in-multi-folds nowadays.
Just their iconic design that never goes on sale - and you rarely see them on eBay either - for cheap anyway.
Not exactly a thrift find, but PTO just posted about a dude who claims to have found a bunch of Paul Newman’s old wardrobe in the basement of his rental apartment. If true, quite a story.
Yeah, I'll let you judge by the inundation of your PM box whether that was a bad pass or not.
How wide...I want want want
