    And the one on the right is a cheap knockoff with the wrong type of stars?

    Nice find. I've been wanting to grab one of those Chipp novelty ties, especially the stylized "f--- you" one.

    Tben - I'd take that shaq jersey off your hands if it were a size bigger! I already have enough jersey outside my size in storage for collection purposes

    You know, I'm not even sure there are enough stars on the one on the left to be American either.

    Pics or it didn't happen!

    Wow. Good catch. I didn't even notice. I should have taken a closer look. Hold up.. let me take a quick pic.

    @Snoogz I'm not into basketball jerseys, but if it were my size, I'd rock it.

    @Fueco It's a heavy nylon blend with a canvas end and brass grommets. The stripes and design are also stitched on, not made up by one piece of fabric. I'm obviously not a flag maker but it seems well done enough.

    Cool Bennington Flag, so whats the other one? Doesn't look like a 50 star configuration either.

    That's what she said?


    I hadn't even thought of that one... Good stuff. Sounds like you found one of the better versions (cheaper flags are printed, the better ones have things like embroidery work and tend to not be one piece). What size is the flag? 3'x5'?

    Maybe Alston was cashing in off the Jackie O pillbox hat... By making actual pillboxes? Cool stuff though 330, I'll see if any of my old antique friends can help with the pottery.

    Haha that was one of my first thoughts, too.

    Appreciate it. The more I think about it, though, the more I think the pottery was made as a tourist piece. Decent work, though.

    I cannot understand why CK didn't cut off his name from that jacket. I'm sure he knows all kinds of people are into "celebrity" memorabilia and clothes, worn against the body, attract perv collectors like nothing else. The jacket can likely be sold on eBay for plenty of dollars if the right people find the auction, though hooker will reap even more when CK dies and the press wax long about his legacy. Still, quite the find!

    Whelp, just ripped the pants of my favorite staple charcoal thrifted suit on a nail. The lining is black, but the rip is still a half-inch wide and very noticeable. If anyone has a 36R or a 38 slim charcoal, please pm me.
