I believe a forum member also accidentally thrifted a napkin once while searching for pocket squares...

i wish i could play, but the beer would get fizzy in transit....... and some whiskey gets taken by customs.:fu:

I always see samuelsohn suits, I guess i'm just trying to hard to find that kiton/Isaia. Maybe I should start picking those up, also i've never seen a hickey freeman in Toronto, I guess those don't travel much.

9" by 9" seems kinda small. In thick material, that would be good, but in thin silk for a puff, I'd suggest 13" to 16".

Someone left these at a shoe repair shop and the shop will sell them to me at $20. I'd flip them but money is tight atm. Was a dumbass and didn't note the size, though I think they're 11.5 (+/- 1) If anyone is interested in a second look or proxy send me a PM.

Thanks for the reminder. I have a shoe guy nearby that has a few shoes I should go check out over lunch tomorrow.

 

Also, does anyone have a good guide for making a PS? I have a few things I could probably make one with, but don't want to destroy something while attempting it.

Luckily, foam issues are typically solved by letting the beer sit for a little bit ;) I definitely do not recommend opening a beer directly from a USPS package, haha.

One of those times when styling trumps name reconnection.

Yes you do, I want to drink ALL of them. 

 

Although, I have to say, Colorado isn't too bad either...

I'm into this beer swap idea!

Been suffering some serious withdrawl with not much time to get out and thrift in the past week. Did grab this tonight because it seemed like something someone would be into for spring/summer:




Orvis gingham half lined sport coat (fits around a 42R based simply on the does it fit me test. No size or content tags). Available

Getting ready to get out for some serious hunting soon, I can feel it.
