Dang! That's definitely worth what they wanted for it though, despite the high mark-up.

I've been after one of these for the longest time. Had one years ago. Seen their advertisements on old Backpacker magazines. Really nice stuff.

You've definitely got more snow than we got here in Minne-snow-tah! Still, the snow we got was wet, heavy and followed a good 20 minutes of freezing rain so we had a nice ice sheet underneath the snow. Cute kid, btw! Spoo as well!

This has been my life for the past month or so. Can't wait for spring cleaning to begin. It seems tax season skipped us this year, so it's been a constant lull since about October.

My Marshalls find of the weekend. Tagged 44L, but fits like a 42R. Excited about keeping it but my wife reminded me that brown is not my color baldy[1].gif

It'll probably get returned unless someone here wants it. Camel color, feels great. all wool exterior, soft shoulders. There is a tear in the upper quarter lining where they put the security tag through. Does not affect wearability. The tag did not go through the outer wool. Made in macau.

That Argyle and Sutherland is pretty cool, Ian. I found a patchwork repp a while back and regret not keeping it. Should definitely appeal to trad folks.

I'm too tired to re-quote everybody's recent finds, but great hauls all around as always guys. Haven't been out myself in what seems like forever. Starting to get the itch.....


Except this. I've got this same tag on a full tweed suit. I've also been wondering who the maker was.

Hey Wes, from my readings, Ralph Lauren made their own Polos in their states factories from 70's to 90's until Corn. got the contract. I was wondering about this too until I read this thread. http://www.styleforum.net/t/94886/ralph-lauren-lines-and-who-makes-what-a-definitive-guide/0_100

Contemplated purchasing a vintage Post War Lionel train set for about 45 minutes. It has a bunch of the original boxes, two engines and tenders. Even some cool automated stuff. It was $500 and had just too much damage, so I left it. I would have had another $500 - $750 in repairs. It would have been nice to expand my set, but was just a bit too much. Was saddened by its condition, which was getting worse by the minute - since it was within reach of unwatched children.

 

On that note, if you guys ever see any empty Lionel boxes, they are an instakop.

A couple summers ago, I picked up a giant moving box at a yardsale of maybe 50 empties or so. Cost me $2.....sold individually for around $500 total.  

 

If you come across the large set box, which would hold all the smaller boxes and their contents, they can be worth around $500 on their own.

+1. I got mine 2 weeks ago. Wear them for all my thrashy outdoor work, saving my new Merrills (which I paid $250+ retail for) for true hiking.

Pretty sure I know where you got that. That store was packed with good stuff at high prices, but got cleaned out sometime before last Thursday. There was a Corneliani linen blue suit that fit me like a glove, but I couldn't justify the $500 they wanted for it.

I was in a hurry so I did a sloppy job at tying my tie.

Just mho, but the 3 piece up top is a bit formal for the jeans. A sweater I can see, and the tweed/cord is fine. I might also go for a knit or wool tie, though the one in the corduroy pic is probably informal enough to go with the jeans.


Anyway, 2 stores yesterday. 0% open. ffffuuuu.gif
