    If there's one "proper" length for sleeves, it's the own that Eazy has.

    Happy Thanksgiving y'all! I'm off to run, then cook, then hang out with friends...

    And the g/f found a sweet Gloverall in size 36. Haven't had a chance to try it on yet, but probably will be avail., since it's almost certainly too short in the arms for me.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am thankful for my family, friends, good health and this wonderful community we have here. I am a member on several other forums for other hobbies but this one is by far the most friendliest and trusting bunch. Cheers! :cheers:

    To all our American brethern here (which, now that I think of it, is probably 90% of the audience): Happy Thanksgiving!
    :cheers:

    In Canada, we do ours in October. It's a long weekend for us but nothing can beat the extra-long weekend you guys get.

    Enjoy!

    Happy Thanksgiving my broes.

    Ive got lots to be thankful for this year, and in large part to thrifting and to the community here, who not only support my business with consignments, but more importantly, have learned so much from and have built some great friendships from.

    wow wow wee wow! I like! ...one of the best jean finds that I've seen on here. On the topic of raw selvedge denim; is there a guide to figure out sizing? I haven't figured out the whole "shrink to fit" vs "stretch to conform to body" puzzle. How do you determine if denim is sanforized? I'm sure most of these answers can be found at a knowledgeable retailer, but when it's a random find at a thrift; answers about a specific brand and model are hard to come by.

    Forgive my Canadian ignorance, but what is twice baked sweet potatoes? What do you mix them with before baking the second time?

    I actually haven't done this before, found the recipe in Cook's magazine.

    Mixture has shallots, bread, Parmesan cheese, thyme, salt, pepper and an egg. Looks pretty good...

    Twice baked potatoes are baked once to soften the inside, then scooped out of the skin, mixed with various things to one's taste, usually including cheese, then put back in the skin, and baked again. The cheese browns on top and melts inside and it's amazing.


    Happy Thanksgiving, all.
