I have a Hartmann ballistic nylon carryall. I've yet to find an actual suitcase. Congrats.

Couldn't have found it at a better time too. When we landed at BWI last night, the logo emblem and 3 wheels were missing off my largest vintage American Tourister bag. Part of a 5 piece set, exactly like the ones below.

Kinda bummed about that. I constantly get compliment on the set when we travel, not to mention, it is so easy to spot on the baggage claim carousel, surrounded by a sea of black roller bags.

 

 If I wind up keeping the Hartmann, I certainly won't be using it for air travel.

Well, whatever. I changed it. It'd be nice if Casey pulled it as well.


I guess. I dunno.

The pair on the left is a braided tassel loafer in the size 9-9.5 B. The pair on the right is a monkstrap in the 10 B. I still need to polish them and make them pretty. Will post pictures later, if there are any takers!

Looks good!  I very much appreciate the subtle combination of textures and patterns with the reduced color palette, very nice.  In that sense, reminds me a good bit of Grendel (only no purple) and RDiaz (only no blue / green).  [side note: am severely behind on following WAYWRN]  Gorgeous shoes!!

Honey, I'm home! Back from vacation in CA. A little lot depressed today since I went from 

THIS!!!! (Click to show)

 

       

 

       

 

 

to

in a matter of hours.

 

 

Thrifting in San Diego was not overly great as I had hoped, but did result in half a handful of decent items (to be shown later). This was due to a few out of the ordinary factors.

Out of town/vacation Thrift Tip:

  • If you intend to visit multiple stores in a new-to-you area, never take your sister and your wife along. I waited an average of 45 minutes to move to the next store, while waiting for those two to try on everything in the store.
  • If you are required to take them along, hit some stores solo in the morning while they are getting ready. My sister took until 12:45 to get ready to go. Who the hell goes thrifting at 12:45!!?? Lol.
  • If you have to go thrifting at 12:45, make sure the two women eat lunch before they go! We hit exactly one store before we had to sit down at a restaurant.

 

It was frustrating for sure, but I had to keep reminding myself it was vacation....and not only vacation, but it was their (sister and wife's) birthday.

Overall we had a blast, eating great food, meeting great people, bike riding, boating, soaking up the rays......and a shitload of drinking.

 

Unfortunately I have no vacation thrift fit as planned. I intended to take my vintage midnight blue tux, but our formal event was cancelled since none of the other guys could come up with anything to wear. THEN, we got invited to a 50's themed wedding reception in Catalina!! icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif I wish I packed the tux....ffffuuuu.gif. Of course the girls were dressed to the hilt. I was stuck wearing my same old Harris Tweed SC with jeans. We almost couldn't get in because we weren't formal enough. Still not sure how we got in with jeans on. The reception was in....

HERE!! (Click to show)

Everyone was swing dancing. It was awesome. They had one member of the Platters (current incarnation) on stage with the swing band. Then they topped that by closing the night with about 8 songs with 

 

This Amazing 11 year old kid....Rockin' Raffi (Click to show)

We got to meet him afterward, kid doesn't speak or understand a lick of English, outside of what he sings.

 

 

Apparently e-thrifted from Spoo

 

 

Wes, where in CA were you at? I'm thinking So-Cal?

Wow!

San Diego was our main destination, but we spent 2 days on St Catalina Island. That is where the pics were taken.

 

BTW, if anyone ever plans to go there, "The Casino" is not really a casino, FYI.

My wife hates thrifting so much. When we run errands, I schedule some stops to the thrift stores. She knows it takes me a good 1/2 hour at least to make my rounds inside the store, so she sits outside and reads or knits in the car. Believe me, when it's -15 below outside my phone rings every 15 minutes saying "Hurry up! I'm getting cold!" or "Hurry up! We're wasting gas letting the car run!". Don't know how you can hate a thrift store, they literally have something for everyone!

I'm either thinking "The minute I leave, a rack full of high-end suits will come out" or "I bet the store across the way is a gold mine right now and I'm missing out while digging through Merona central".

"Thrifting is just like a handjob love. You need to have good skills to handle the meat out here".

"Think of thrifting like giving a BJ. Use your head well and make best use of your hands. Build your energy up, focus, be diligent, and when the climax is reached, you will be wearing the results of your hard work".

I know the feeling all to well of leaving palm tree paradise to come home to a bunch of snow and gray skies. SD is hit or miss. My wife's brother lives there and when we go to meet him I usually hit some downtown stores. One store in particular huge and usually has one or two things worth grabbing. Last time we went though, the entire SD day trip was a bust.

Your list is spot on. WTF is with the sit-down restaurant thing?! When we were in LA, the wife was hungry. I told her we could swing into a gas station and grab a sandwich. She opted for a restaurant in Beverly Hills where I had a lovely $20 turkey burger. I kid you not, the burger was worth the money and the Oreo cheesecake was phenomenal, but it ate up a good hour of potential thrifting. ffffuuuu.gif

Speaking of which, women's clothing has been my only real finds lately. Not that anyone besides maybe Martinigirl would likely care about them, but worth posting anyway for the hell of it. Oh, any happy birthday Cesar!

This is the Fioravanti that you're looking for. Nicely done! There is another label with the same label that is fairly common and is not (I don't think) related. I made that mistake years ago.

Women's clothes for those that care:

Gucci dress.





St John Couture





Missoni blouses (tentatively claimed by my wife)



Escada silk blouse (tentatively claimed by my wife)
