    Ahhh, I see.

    I'm considering two of their jackets. I'd like to grab some shoes, but they have like nothing in 8.5 and you can't even search their site for the size. Wtf...?

    Those LBM jackets look great! I've only come across them once in Chicago, but it was at our most overpriced thrift so it was $50 for a used one.


    Cozy winter haul.

    "Thrifted" Flat White from my favorite coffee shop... Due to the frequent customer program, I got everything for half price, and the coffee drinks are free if you purchase a bag of beans.

    Question about damage to a pair of shoes:

    Got these RLPC shoes in yesterday, look to not have been worn too much and in generally good shape with one exception. For about three inches along the instep of one, the "shoe" portion is separating from the sole. Nearest I can tell is that the "welt" is fake and these are blake-stitched with a lugged sole attached to the stitched-on leather sole and the blake stitching has come undone for this one portion. Is it likely to get worse? Can I safely ignore it, would glue be ok to fix it, or does it need a full recraft/return? Here's a couple pictures of the issue, it's a little hard to photograph clearly:

    The amount of women's designer stuff was mind boggling. I almost picked up a $2K Lanvin skirt that was marked down to $99, but I don't really have the time or money to invest in stuff like that at the moment.
    Also, jacket update. Prepared and basted the canvas and next week I'll be learning how to pad stitch. :slayer: :slayer: :slayer:
