    Today's run yielded some cool records.

    On another note, any leathercare experts here? I need some ideas on how to get this water stain out of the leather on my Duluth Pack carry-on. Last time I flew, I had it under the seat in front of me. Some kid lost his juice cup and it ended up by my bag, with juice spilling all over it. Didn't notice until we got off the plane. It sat in a puddle of juice for 2 hours. Did a quick Google search which told me to evenly wet the whole surface and it should dry evenly. Nope.

    Hello, know this is not proper thread but I exhausted other options. I am looking for a copy of "The Gentleman's Companion, An Exotic Drinking Book, Around the World With Jigger, Beaker, and Flask". I am looking for the leather bound edition. Would be the BEST wedding present for my cousin. If anyone by chance has one,PM me please.[​IMG]

    There's a leatherbound one on eBay right now for fairly cheap, only two hours left on the listing though so hop to it!

    sorry, this is the eating one, not the drinking one. mea culpa

    @DerekS @Takai interesting too is that the price went up. when i first saw it in donelson it was at $650, then they marked it up and it continued to sit and so they moved it as if somehow the people going to metroplex are willing to buy it hahahahaha

    Did not expect Lange to be faked either... Much more of a niche, non-main stream name (to non watch people)...

    Yeah, I left a Rugby one awhile back that was priced around $30. Looked like they only fetched $60.

    This is an odd brand to fake; those who know the brand would be able to spot that it's fake. You wouldn't be able to fool anyone like with a fake as it's not a household name. At least with a fake Rolex, one could at least fool their stupid friends at the bar, or at least not have your bluff called as their rocking some fake shit too.

    After handling literally hundreds of pairs of loafers, I finally thrifted a pair that don't slip off my feet. #humblegrail

    On vacation (short road trip). Got skunked here last time. This will pay for the trip plus extra.
