I want to give a plug for Fabric Reweavers USA. I've mentioned them here before, but haven't actually shown any examples of their work. I sent the gray RLPL suit I recently thrifted to them to fix a hole in the chest. Not only did they fix it, they found another one that I had missed, and fixed that too. They did an excellent job, and the results are fantastic. Virtually invisible. They charged me $88 to fix both, including return shipping back to me. From what I've seen, that's a pretty reasonable rate. If you thrift something really nice that has minor moth damage, it might be worth the investment to have it fixed. Especially if you're keeping it for yourself, like I am this one (because it fits like it was bespoke for me).

I will say, be patient when you send stuff to them. It's run by an elderly gentleman who has had health problems recently. He's the nicest guy in the world, but I had to be patient with him for a little while as he sorted out the aftermath of being in the hospital for several weeks and finally got to my items.

If you look REALLY hard, you can see each cross-shaped repair site about an inch below the white threads.

This may surprise you all, but nope. Not in a million years. As long as I have ammo, that is.

Just got here for an exchange and visited the local thrift store. Amazing new stuff! Hit me up if you see anything you like as I'd prefer to sell them rather than bringing them back to Canada with me.

Cool finds! Love the Pink Panther tie! It'd be interesting to hear about what thrift stores in Hong Kong are like. Care to share with us? Prices? Are the shops pretty small? What was the junk to good stuff ratio?

The shells from yesterday. Fresh from shop, pre cleaning etc.







Who makes these?

Nat, didnt figure you for a firearms guy! we should go to the range or clays course one of these days!

 

Also, does anyone get slightly crushed when you see something awesome in your size on eBay... and then you realize Spoo is selling it and you'll never be able to pay what he gets!

That just happened to me twice today, I was all "Damn, put on watch list. *Scroll down* Aww its Spoo, remove from watch list"

post #64116 of 124635

i said that because i thought you seriously didnt know what those meant. I was like "has this dude been living under a fucking rock for the last couple months?" lol

That looks like quality work! I've passed on a couple of things lately that might actually be salvageable- I'll have to go pick them up and give that a shot.

Popped in a store I don't usually visit and came out with a few things-

T&A by Chester Barrie DB Suit. Marked as a 40, seems pretty slim, though. FF pants, side vented.

i've had the opposite experience. several times, i see something that's on his auctions, bookmark it or put it in my watch list, forget to bid, then think DAMN THAT WENT FOR A PRETTY DANGED GOOD PRICE I WISH I HADN'T FORGOTTEN TO BID. i don't find his end prices to be that much higher than your regular ebay seller when comparing similar items, he's just selective in what he chooses to list.

Since you mentioned yesterday that you're fond of Etro shirts, what size are you?? I assume you like brighter striped shirts? I may have something for you!

That Corn is something special... too bad it isn't a 42 or I'd be all over it even though I just picked one up last night!

Wow! That is some good work there! Had I known they can produce results this good, I would have picked up all the ones I've passed due to moth holes. ffffuuuu.gif

I personally prefer muscle powered weapons to firearms. I just love pulling back a 100LB compound bow and smashing an arrow through a solid block of two by four. I got 5 Crossbows and 3 Compound Bows of various poundage, I just love using them. While nowhere near as practical as a shotgun in a self defense scenario, I do not live in fear of some guy armed to the teeth crashing through my front door. And even if that did happen, he would find a broadhead released from a 260LB crossbow to be exceedingly deadly.

I plan to start an inventory of firearms soon, it is on my "to do list". I am even considering selling off most my wardrobe to accommodate my outdoor shooting hobbies. I had a firearm license in England but got rid of my weapons when I immigrated to the USA. I am starting from a blank slate here which is fun. I have my eyes on a Sig Sauer P229 for the time being and plan to invest in at least 2 or 3 top of the line hunting rifles. Also have my eyes on a Mossberg shotgun - for clay shooting and home defense. Of course, I intend to continue purchasing the latest and greatest bows and crossbows that come out yearly.

I am also interested in big bore pellet guns - check em out if you guys get a chance nod[1].gif

In terms of hobby, clothing is way way below my outdoors activity interests. I like nothing better than being decked out in camos and being on the firing range or archery range. Clothing is fun, but shooting is way more fun. If I could do both, I would be happy, so I will try not to get rid of all my Tom Ford suits or Hermes jackets.
