You may have outwitted yourself here.

I realize this, now. I plan to go back, so it's all good. smile.gif

In other news, my Goodwill recently set aside a special rack for overcoats and other outerwear items for winter.

In the place of hanging tags, they have Sharpied the prices on the labels inside the coats. Is anyone elses' Goodwill doing this?

Thanks again!
Why not just pair those 2 up? Then you wouldn't have to rejig the vast majority of participants.

I had the same brilliant thought after I had drawn all of the names. shog[1].gif I quickly looked at the list to see if fate had possibly matched them happy.gif

I thought they possibly can't check their email at work, so I'd give them until tomorrow. They're regulars around here, so I could probably ask around enough people for their addresses if needed. It's also possible that they sent me their addresses and I missed it in all of the PMs I got. I'm digging through them now to check if it was my error.

Any good shops in Oklahoma City?

I've had some awful luck finding things here in OKC, aside from the Junior League's Remarkable Shop which closed last month.

I got a ton of Harris tweeds in that I will be making available at the end of summer. We just got rid of literally a truck load of Bijan suits. If any of you guys need something contact me and If I can't get it I'll try to steer you.

 

Are you still getting those Harris tweeds in cuz if so I think I might marry you. 

They're so hard to find here in OKC.  Well, that, or I'm awful and looking in all the wrong places. 

I'm a student here at OCU and would love to check your store out!

I'll be there tomorrow!

Nothing much happening at the stores today, but I finally found some good sunglasses. Oakley dispatches with polarized lenses.

Easy to just take each of the people that the no address people had....and then give that name to the person who had the no address named person

 

Person A has person B (no address person), person B has person C. Now just give person A, person C's name and you're set, unless person A = person C lol8[1].gif You're just taking out the middle man.

That's a definite possibility if I don't hear back from them! I would feel bad if I took them out since they had already let me know that they wanted to be in on it.

If they don't get back to me, I'll for sure send the names tomorrow. If they get back to me soon, you'll still get them tonight. I just poured a glass of wine, so I'm content to wait a bit for them happy.gif

Great looking, but I think it's a women's coat (someone can correct me if I'm wrong!) due to the European sizing. When it comes to duffle coats though, I wouldn't really mind whether it's made for a woman as aside from the tagged size and possibly the buttons, there aren't a huge number of differences.

Um.  Have you checked closed auctions on ebay for genuine vintage NASA mission patches?  You may change your mind on keeping that jacket complete, as found.

 

I checked the completed auctions after some advice here, but those seem to be for mostly unused patches.  I figure someone in Japan, given that this is a size 36 jacket, will be interested in the total package.  Heritage, fits well, americana.  I am going to put it on eBay as a buy it now or best offer and see what happens.

It could be, it isn't cut any different than a men's coat from what I can see but that would make sense based on the listed sizes.

Unless you mirrored the picture you posted here, its a women's based on the side that it closes on. Still real nice though!

In all honesty, the smaller guys here shouldn't be too scared off by it. I've seen women's Gloveralls and, aside from the size/buttons, they would be unnoticeable to most people. I wouldn't hesitate to wear it if I didn't have something similar.
