I'd say that's a good pick-up. Love the suede details.

Last one I found was blanket lined and did very well. Hoping this one does well.

Nothing special. Late 70's to mid 80's judging by label and overall style. The puffer style jackets do the best. These, not so much. I'd pass.

Thanks for all of the compliments. These sweaters are actually fairly easy to make though. My sewing experience is limited to sewing 5 dog sweaters.

 

Amazing creativity and execution, tubs!

As a father myself, I can only imagine how hard it is to see your little one in a situation like that, especially at this time of year.

As a thrifter, it makes me happy that you turn to this thread and the community here as a mental break from the day to day rigors of whats going on in the hospital, and being on the wait list for a heart transplant.

What I would like to do is match 20% of any of AndroFan's ebay sales from 12/1 - 12/25 and put a personal contribution towards any costs you may have towards Emily's hospital stay, or towards a charity of your choice.

Expect a PM shortly after Christmas my friend, and happy holidays to you.

Back to work now.

This community is on fire, with generosity during hardship.  And not just during the holidays, but all throughout the year this place has proven to have a heart to those who are in need of comfort. 

I feel blessed to be apart of it with each and everyone of you!  Wouldn't change it for anything.

 

Keep on keepin on playas.
