    Huh as in "shit" They were quite definitely not #8. Brown with no hint of the #8 red mahogany color. More like a... cigar.
    Everything will be closed. Everything.
    I know wasn't it glorious?
    What's the secret with Garcia ties? I see them all the time and just assume they're crap.

    Just had a fantastic e thrift experience.. I hope the guy actually follows through and sends it to me.

    I was planning on paying full price ($58 a yard) for 6 yards of this upholstery fabric to reupholster my couch. I somehow just snagged 25 yards of it for about half the price of one yard, total. :slayer:

    Did you check out the Scholarshop by the Galleria Jumpman? I heard it is closing this year.

    The boots were the Wolverine 744LTD and were made by Allen Edmonds with brown, color #449 Horween shell. I have a well used pair of the color 8 721LTD they released a couple years earlier

    I think you're right. But I saw this limited edition and figured I'd see. it might flip for $25 or so. Probably not worth thinking about again

    What kind of snow do you get? Is it light powder, or that heavy wet snow? That heavy wet snow is a bitch, so hard to shovel and sticks to everything
