post #65986 of 113225

I still haven't given up some of my college band tees, including the Sonic Youth fisting puppet

You mean the little knitted guy, or was there another?
post #65988 of 113225
While on the subject, it got me thinking of when my wife was playing archaeologist in the closet looking for something or another and came upon a box of my old clothes.

Stuff that I've had the longest that is still in my possession and hasn't been turned into rags:

- Mustard yellow and orange floral cut off shorts with front patch pockets.
- Old chambray work shirt with crazy day-glo colored embroideries all over it. If I recall correctly there is a "Timothy Leary for Governor" patch on the sleeve.

I'd snap a few pictures for posterity but don't want to wake the wife rummaging through the closet at midnight.


Edit:

Shorts weren't too hidden. Got a pic of them. The shirt is buried somewhere.

Hey guys, derail time. Where do you guys go to get prescription sunglasses lenses replacement for your thrifted frames? I've checked out the interwebz and found a few places would do it but not sure about their services. Any experiences you gents had and would like to make a recommendation?

 

Thanks! fing02[1].gif

I've gotten prescription sunglasses from Lens Crafters in Milpitas, but I just looked and they aren't there anymore. They did good work though! Try one of their other locations...

How much was it? How much did your insurance cover?

Good question... It's been more than ten years. I seem to recall insurance covering all but something like $30 or $40. I'd bought a pair of Glacier Glasses from REI and brought them there to get the darkest prescription lenses available (93% of visible light blocked). They did a great job of it. I think normal sunglass lenses are cheaper. Mine are also polarized.

 Then post some...

 

 Unless you want me to carry on about original Timbuk2 Messenger bags, Golf Sandals and Patagonia fleece... I found all of those today, but didn't think anyone would want to hear about it.

This thrift thread is a community - thrift finds are a part of the whole experience rather than the whole experience.

I myself would be bored just looking at pics and a few brands listed. If it were just about the pics and brands, it would be better if folks posted pics of hot chicks, preferably naked. Would rather look at that than clothing. Discussion makes the thread intersting, without that, bring on the nudity instead, screw the finds...
