I feel this is a pretty good bargain.

If no one else has asked, I'll put some dibs on these. PM to follow.

I took a bit of a spill on my bike Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
(bicycle, not motorcycle) last weekend, and it looks like I'm going to be on crutches for quite a while, and probably use a cane for a while after that. Very deeply bruised hip - can't put any weight on it to speak of. For crutches I'm content to go with functional ugly (every choice I've made for the last week or so has been totally functional, screw style), but once I move to a cane, I'd like to try to move away from tubular metal. I can probably get something half way decent locally if it comes to that, but if any of you see a really sharp cane at thrifting prices, please think of me. Probably not the kind of thing we'd normally pick up, but maybe someone will see a nice one. I'm definitely off the thrifting circuit for a little while.
As for measurement, it would need to be at least 35" and a 36 might be better. Afterall, if it is a little long, I can cut off the end. Can't do anything for a piece of wood that's too short. Since it isn't just an affectation, it would need to be sturdy. If you put your weight on it and are a little scared, it probably isn't a good candidate - leave it for next years Halloween rush!
Keep up the good work guys (and please PM me if you find anything, I probably will need to go back off reading cause this chapter isn't going to revise itself)!
EDIT: Oh, yeah, I know the rule is pics or it didn't happen, but I'm not posting pics of my tri-color bare butt, hip, and way too far around to the front on the internet. biggrin.gif

Bummer. I'll keep an eye out but mostly I see the basic black/bronze corner pharmacy variety.

Meanwhile, odd that I've never noticed Cooper flight wear here before and the day I find one, there's a leather A-2 posted a couple of hours back!

Here's what I found. I bought it for my son in law but he wears his denim below his belly and it felt too short to him. I told him to pull his pants up to his waist but ...youth! Whatcha gonna do? It fit him in the shoulders and looked good around his considerable belly but it is definitely waist length.

Available but plan on wearing a cool belt because it will be visible from time to time.

Also, Cooper has apparently been replaced as the supplier to the USAF for these by a company called Cockpit.

Here's a link to them.

All Cotton 100 Mission A2 Flight Jacket

Oh yeah. When I got home and went through the pockets, I found these black silk(?)/poly(?) glove liners. I will not be returning to the store to inform them that they sold them to me in the jacket.

Bay

Hard to believe that this was found in the burbs of Toronto as we didn't have JCrew until earlier this year.

Went out today for a bit and got the following:

Chaps RL - Polyester but I liked the design and colour


Some pocket squares:


Samuelson trousers - mint hardly worn if ever.

The Barbour is from a spot in Oakville but everything else in my post except for the Orvis are from that intersection...

I'm a big fan of Patagonia gear and a big fan of vintage, domestically made items but I hate their snap t pullover (which this one is) and find it hilarious that this one (because of it's funky pattern) will sell for more than a brand new model!

Anybody familiar with vintage Nunn Bush, Made in Italy? Found some really nice and soft black balmorals in 9D that fit me very well, so unavailable.  On a tangent, it's very strange to look at my shoe collection and see the range of sizes: 9C, 9D, 9.5C, 10A, 10B.  Is that excessive?  They all fit pretty similarly with a fluctuation of a centimeter or so in the toe length.  Over the past couple of years from changing my running style my arches have strengthened, and I'm thinking my feet have *shrunk* rather than stretched, as the shoes that are fitting me best now are smaller than they were before.  It would be nice to know that I'm not a freak -- has this happened to anyone else?


Also picked up a few shirts, all 15.5-16x33  -- Pink, CT, GB, but all going to my father for his bday.  Oh, and a nice J Press tie I'm up for trading.  I have to get some photos up, as usual...

To confirm, the first one with a more conservative tie.  Navy pindot comes to mind.  I might focus on cooler rather than warmer colors, though.

A minute too late! censored.gif(though probably useless for me unless narrower anyway...).  I  <3  my Nettleton saddles, they would like company.



P.S.  Patrologia, best wishes, man.  I hope you have a better than imaginable recovery.

Here is the Pendleton finds from the w/e...

Sir Pendleton Black-watch size Medium recent but has one small issue..

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I didn't notice it has a hole in the collar...

It's not as noticeable as in the picture, and since the collar is button down it can be flipped.

Recent Topman Limited Edition Coat Size Large

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Vintage Workshirt. Tagged Large but it looks like it runs on the small side...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

And my last Pendleton find..this baller vintage winter coat tagged 40R

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I also picked this up a few weeks ago and never posted pix...

Vintage Banana Republic Coat...Made in Italy, Tagged Large

Everything is looking for a new home...and I'm always open to trades.

Catside said that this should be a brag - well IF they are shell. Paging capnwes! Hoping these are shell! For $23, if they're shell, I'll send them on to AE for recrafting to have a gem of a shoe! If they're calf, i'll have them resoled by a local guy and have some cool looking knockarounds with some character!


post #56745 of 124836
Not sure if those are shell or not. They kinda don't look like it, but you'll need to post better pictures of the toe box in order to tell definitively.
