I realize they're not Lobbs but they look so much better than any other boots that I have, for now.

ˆˆˆ And now you got something to wear while you hunt down the grail. Right choice.

I thought about pleading that SWMBO purchased them but she ran off to the restroom while we were in line to pay. I'm so screwed over there.

I mean it looks like it was tailored for me!  Already wore it to work and got compliments.  Thinking of selling it, honestly feel like I have to watch what I'm doing when I wear it in case something happens to it.  It doesn't even look like it had been worn.  Any tips on how old it is and the best way to market it on eBay or other?






Christ's sake, look at thatbutton hole!


It's purdy, no?  I have a hard time wearing my Men's Wearhouse coats after wearing this.

but it ended up sitting in my closet for months (and needed altered) so I decided to list it today. I think this is the 4th or 5th time I've picked up one of the crappier RL lines just because it was a nice looking piece and it always paid off. Fetched $80 about an hour after listing it lol8[1].gif

Each of these is sexy as F***K.

Woodworker, if you get rid of that, you can sell it directly to me. But you'd be an absolute fool if you did.
(BTW, nice to see a fellow woodworker here. Remind me to send you some shots of some of my projects. Before kids consumed all my free time.)

EDIT: Highlife: nice ties. Cesar: nice squares.

Looking good Ceaser....Went to law school prom with my wife back when we were dating when she was a 3L

No expert, but this is good, right? Popped a cherry or two on this one.

A couple of interesting Goodwill finds.

 

First: A pair of women's vintage Big John jeans. Made in Japan. Sort of a higher rise. Really thick denim. The leather patch is ridiculously thick as well. A cool find in the pocket can be (barely) seen in the second photo; an old NYC toll booth receipt from 1992.

 

Second: A pair of Chimala grey denim. Made in Japan. All of Chimala's hand distressed goodness. Tagged size 36. Available. Any info about the brand Chimala? From what I can tell, they are a ridiculously priced company making distressed denim for the likes of JCrew and Madewell. I believe their designers used to work at 45rpm. Anything else?

These are Jean Shop's, right? I've always been a fan. Their "Classic" fit is ridiculously huge though. The fabric is great though, and their details are top notch. Never found a pair that fit well, however.

I'm a big fan of Chimala, but you basically hit the nail on the head. Japanese workwear goodness. Shame they aren't smaller!
