At any rate, is Sanyo stuff worth picking up for eBay?  Should I go back for this thing?

 

It sounds like you found the T-Rex jacket.

Still vaguely fuming about dem Loro Piana coats. Would've loved to have em for myself if they just fit. Badass grey herringbone, black with a quiet purple windowpane... Ah well, directed my dad (bigger than me) there, he may try em out. Also left behind a Lorenzini (2nd time seeing it in a week), collar was mangled beyond belief. Few small buys, all for myself, all unavailable.

Shirt: Vineyard Vines
Ties (L-R): BB Makers, PRL, HSM Gold Trumpeteer, Hildritch & Key


Always wanted to try a VV shirt, and this was (1) in my size, (2) super crispy minty fresh (yet oddly not in the 'boutique' section or otherwise marked up like NWOT quality clothes often are), and (3) good looking. The H&K has one small bit of semi-noticeable damage to the front, but not too bad and couldn't pass it up for 2 bucks.

Most on here won't care, but been a sneakerhead for a long time, and these are more than flippable.

Be careful with Jordan's. I found two pairs last year...I got dinged because the guy who bought them said they were fake.

Yeah no I've been collecting Jordans and sneakers in general for about 8 years so luckily I can tell the difference. 99% of them I see in thrifts are fake.

I figure I should PSA this if anyone is interested. Sorry if it was already done. Ralph Lauren Sale extra 30% off. Use this code BZR2956 for an extra 10%. This makes wool sweaters between 28-38 dollars. http://www.ralphlauren.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=1760788

Unless the shops can afford security or cameras, the problem will not get better. It'll still be damned near impossible catching people stealing buttons in the fitting rooms, unless you pay someone enough to check every single item that goes into and out of the fitting rooms.

 

He's a nice fellow. A bit on the weird side but I enjoyed an interesting conversation with him about Kung Fu and martial arts. According to him, the most dangerous fighter in the street is a boxer...Hmmmm, sure.

I had that pair on the right back in the 90's, but they were the space jam edition with the multi colored tongue.

Those are one of my favorite shoes, have multiple pairs of the Originals from 92 and Retros.

Extremely pleased with my only find today:

post #59834 of 102707
Stopped by eazye's PRL place today, all he left were acrylic cardigans frown.gif

another stop after work gave me the good:



LB 16.5, dunhill wool/cotton, W&G wool/cotton


Incotex for EZ (NA), LB 52 wool/cotton
wool cotton blend kind of day I guess.


But then, there was the bad:



$18.99 dissected pants? shog[1].gif
