    Nice! Was that all in Cincinnati? I picked my first pair of shells in a while today, Florshiem longwings that had been resoled but not reheeled, still had the v-cleat.

    All Columbus except for the Nettletons which were in Dayton on a quick stop back to Oxford. You shouldn't have much to worry about as far as me making to the Cinci thrifts for a while. If I do ever make it out there I probably won't make it much farther past Fairfield!

    Ooh I missed guitar talk. I mostly play drums these days but...
    Mainly a 90s silver sparkle Ibanez Talman with Bigsby through a 70s Ampeg V4 head and 4x12 cab or through a 60something (I forget exactly but it's a year or two post CBS buyout) Fender Bandmaster. The Bandmaster is the only nice thing I have, it's a miracle my guitar survived the punk basements of the early 2000s [​IMG] Also a Epiphone Les Paul, a cheap lap steel I swear I'm going to learn someday and more odds and ends electronics crap I know what to do with.
    also
    Man that's an awesome find. I need myself a lightmeter one of these days...

    As Spoo explained to me, that's called "bloom" and it's just the natural oils. Buff into the leather; don't use wax remover or anything silly.

    Now for that advice, I get dibs on those shells (10.5-11), the bespoke jacket 42R) and the brown AE wholecuts (again, 10.5-11). Right?


    This. That all you got, bro? I got four drawers. And that's just what I'm keeping.

    (Srsly, some nice stuff in there. Congrats.)

    Quote: I move into my first non-climbing van, non-tent, non-rented room for the first time in over a year tomorrow. It's got beautiful built-in's from the early 1900s meant to display your finest liquor and china. You can be sure as hell it will be displaying ties until some lass moves in and corrects my misguided ways.

    So an "MD" on the content tag of a tie stands for Michael Drake, and a CH stands for Charles Hill. I found a nice Made-in-England tie today with "HB" on the content tag. Would that mean Holliday & Brown?

    If I had a bass wah I'd probably spend the rest of my life playing the intro to N.I.B.

    Just got this Black Watch Tartan Pendleton Wool Blazer with some beautiful Regiment of North Staffordshire, Prince of Wales Buttons.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    The jacket is beautiful but what caught my eye were the buttons.



    [​IMG][​IMG]

    A member of the North Staffordshire Regiment 1st/5th Bn wearing what looks like these buttons on his jacket and a North Staffordshire Regiment cap badge

    This jacket is pretty cool, but unfortunately a tad big, I'll probably end up trading it.


    Apparently there are matching pants!

    What's the consensus on Andrew's Ties? Came across the first non-damaged, non-stupidly high priced one today, but just couldn't pull the trigger (seemed like good quality, but not a pattern I could see wearing a lot).

    I pick them up. I have several in my collection that are really nice.
    That's a steal! Any chance you'd be up for proxying if it's still going on? I've been eyeing some stuff on eBay but it's pretty pricey. Can you provide any insight as to if their pants run true to size?
