Thanks, hucklecat, that was my first guess, too, but what about that chain inside? It looks like the hook is to hang decoratively onto maybe a button or button-hole, but the way it's constructed I don't see how it would display well. If that is the case, though, it's probably damn old, since it's been a while since people wore snuff-boxes as sartorial ornamentation. I don't think it's from the 18th century, however, because the black stuff on the inside is a solid piece of foam (maybe inserted later, anachronistically to keep the chain from scratching the box? No scratch marks visible under the foam, though. ). Definitely interesting. I've become obsessed with figuring out what it is.
Anybody know what the hell this is? Looks like gold fill, but aside from that, no clue. This is about the size of a small matchbox or lighter. This is not available until I figure out what on Earth this is, but might be afterward.Details: (Click to show)
Holy christ, Brianpore, that is so magnificent. Can just imagine that wonderful mohair levity. I would say to send it my way if it doesn't fit, but that's way out of my price range... Maybe the tux I found that almost worked out was the final straw to push you over the edge? I'd like to think so, if that beauty is what resulted.
GOT ME A TUXEDO - Kinda, sorta, not really a discount

What? Please don't, those are nice! They're so close to my size; if they would fit better, I'd definitely take them off your hands for you. No need to trash nice boots in good shape.
Frye James inside zip boot (in my size)...NWOB...not really my style but for the ridiculous price i could make them beater boots Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
(^^ Oh wait, just saw the Made in Mexico... was thinking about the old, good stock.)
Haha, I like how in the photo they show this is to be used for IT band release. Ouch! Maybe it's because I'm skinny, but those rumbles look a little too big for that. Then again, I'm also wishing my foam roller were more effective...
