Great second post. Probably it was a typo and he was trying to type "vinyl."

I pretty clearly understood that but with the s making it plural it's incorrect. Not intending to sound belittling its just a common misconception that bothers me.

BBBF N/A. Can anyone relink to the magical formula that removes yellowing?

Hot water, much more Oxyclean than the label tells you, and lots of time.

My best ever such find was the Guidi bag I found. I purchased it in a little shop I randomly walked into while on vacation. It was in a bin with typical nylon travel bags and the like. I paid $3 for it and sold it for $1200. shog[1].gif

lol i was about to quote these posts too. I have them copied to my clipboard and everything.

You have to quote the fit, though. The way it on him makes it twice as good.

Not so much a "discount store item", but I scored a killer pair of Raichle hiking boots off Ebay.

 

These are from the late 80s, I think. Damn good condition... Price? I consider it a trade for the part of the profit from the Crockett & Jones shoes I sold on Saturday. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Make sure to check for stains in unusual places. Also, make sure there aren't any wear marks. NWOT could be tricky sometimes. lol had to tone down the content.
