    I'm not 100% sure, but I think newsstand copies have a box with a UPC bar code and subscription issues either have nothing or the same box but without the bar code. The same applied to comic books sold direct vs newsstand.

    Edit: should have added 'on the front cover'

    Let me ask my grandfather. Oops no wait he ded. BUT I do know he had a subscription back in the 70s. And he had a recliner with big pockets on both sides. On one side he had his liquor, the other side was porn. That's how it's done.

    Not Tom Ford but I'll take em. I'm still excited one of us NY guys had such a great success since it's been dry in the city. Starting to think it might have something to do with @SpooPoker & @bpk1 . Only sucks that it isn't my size.

    i went to a store that I've been to a few times in the past few weeks and the guy says to me "man, you're always here, don't you work?"

    I said, "Yep, I'm working right now".

    that felt really good.

    Thread first on the Tim Coppens? This thing is dope and fits.

    [​IMG]

    Also fit, and excellent color of trouser I'll actually wear! My first incotex, too.

    EG era Maine guide jacket, I would be keeping this if I didn't already have a waxed Filson like this.

    [​IMG]

    All the grad students in my department love the PLAY stuff.

    Was running out of the store at the end due to time constraints. Left behind A LOT of Saturday's surf stuff, outerwear and shirts. Saw my first Jil Sander shirt, too In crisp white, but somehow didn't end up buying it.

    Also another first on opening ceremony, but it was a collab with uniqlo and it was slightly too tight. Am I correct in assuming the quality of fabric and construction is uniqlo but the design is by opening ceremony? I might go back for it. It was the shirt on the right.

    Nope, garage sale. About 5 minutes from my house. :slayer:

    Almost all are in excellent shape. Those two Cream albums are mint. Hard to find those, even in beat-up condition!

    Ran into @impuntura in the field the other day. Super scratchy and a little tight so I didn't take him home with me.

    A few more recent rando finds (stop me if these are boring, I can't find Kiton or Tom Ford around here so these will have to suffice).

    I haven't eaten at McDonalds in 15 years, but have nostalgia for it. Wasn't going to leave this (deadstock?) WTF thing.
