    Okay and since we are talking about beer.
    I found these in an old credenza I bought couple years back.
    All before 1978.

    First thought was Mies Barcelona but that ain't right...if you were in an airport in the 1990's, that might be where you saw them. Hah! But that's totally what it reminds me of - vintage United Airlines gate seating.

    I'd reckon if from a club or joint they'd have more wear / damage, but who knows...it just says "utilitarian waiting area" to me...functional, but not overly comfortable, and too thin to have been for home use. Which is no knock on it - that sort of stuff makes great display nowadays.

    Found this today.

    Cuggi/Coogi wool sweater made in Australia, it appears to be pre 1987 when the company changed its name from Cuggi to Coogi. Is anyone able to tell me a more precise date?

    I did find a small hole in the back of the sweater but overall it is in pretty good condition given it's age.

    Usually don't pick up old YSL but I know every once in a while the older pieces are good. This one certainly looked the part. Too bad it's too snug (somewhere between 36-38)

    No, this was in a pretty bad part of town. I've seen dealers and hookers around here plenty of times, but I had to call the cops recently because I saw someone getting strangled a block away.

    I've not found much in my size lately to keep. So I decided today I needed to get out to get a little birthday luck. What I found was someone donated a handful of stuff my size and a few things a little snug on the pants but still nice to send out. Gotta like the birthday luck!
    Most suits on left and jacket is hickey. Also not pictured found two pairs of ae shoes.
