You hit the nail on the head.

...and you can tell it's a baby yeti because as the yeti matures, its hair darkens into dark brown before going gray.

Never look at pants, glad I did today. Some disappointing misses but a couple firsts for me.

lol brian you're cool most of the time and usually you're helpful as far as pointing people to the labels thread or the ebay thread, but I think you overstepped here. having a discussion on the merits/content/direction/purpose of a thread should be okay.

 Yes, if started by someone who contributes to the thread in a meaningful way. Perhaps where people have overstepped is in reacting to the flames thrown by a n00b?

you hit the nail on the head. it's not about what was being said, but the fact that it was being said by an outsider and not a regular contributor. to paraphrase the bedouin people:

"I against my trading partners,
my trading partners and I against the thrift thread,
then the thrift thread and I against strangers."

Saw these. Any interest? I can proxy. Not sure of brand as its not legible unless someone is familiar.

Kinney, same as the pair from the other day....

 

I think the only thing left of the Kinney company is Foot Locker these days.

Just for your future reference posting in this thread, that is a Daniel Cremieux Jacket with Loro Piana Fabric. Still a good pick up however quite different than a Loro Piana make jacket. Probably would have passed on the christian dior. Someone can correct me if I am wrong but I believe the consensus is that if it says "Christian" it's not the dior you are looking for.
