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.

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.

Wow, that is a lot simpler than what I was visualizing in my head. Thanks!

Lunchtime thrifting.

 

 

 

 

Harris Tweed overcoat, probably a size 40-41ish. The lining needs some help, but this can easily be worn without it.

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! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

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.

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.

I think they end up in DM7's dorm..
