    Bummer about the wiener dog breaking. That reminded me of this guy whom I completely forgot about and had left sitting in a bag on the backseat floor of my car.

    Nice! That's pretty unique. I buy all the tiki / Hawaiian / etc stuff i can find if its older or obscure. One of the best things i found was a souvenir small tiki mug that was only offered on the first Tahitian Air flight - maiden voyage thing for however many were on that 1st flight.

    I also endorse this. Older rollers rule, newer ones suffer from build quality that makes me make the [​IMG]face. But Seriously??? pm me about this "Check engine light" thing you got going on. could save you some monies.

    Kevlar jeans?? that's a cool find. [​IMG]

    One stop one kop. But it was Savile Row [​IMG]

    Bespoke tweed hacking jacket tailored 10/87 by Norton and Sons. Made of an awesome herringbone tweed with a red over check. Hacking pockets, throat latch, true 3 button, of course lots of handwork. There is a snag on the front, but hopefully someone who would actually use it won't care all that much. Half off Saturday at Goodwill too.

    If it's for yourself I think it's an OK price, not a super bargain but leathers here are usually priced a bit higher

    Lady, Gentlemen, people of all creeds, drunk or sober. I present to you: The return of a legend. The FIRST ever Japanese domestically put together Denim brand.
    [​IMG]
    Canton, producing from 1963, replaced by Big John as a brand name, made their return a few years ago. and are still top tier Denims flying under the radar. Touted as "a Rebirth, not a Replica". They Deliver on the Mantra. the details are all there, the stitching is NEAT.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Yes, These are also Selvedge. using a navy thread to seal the deal. and the selvedge is Perfect.
    [​IMG]

    So why am i bragging a retail purchase? Because here in Japan, these bad boys are up in the same leagues as sugarcane,Pherrows,Momotaro,etc. And i managed to get these for a fellow member at 40% off Japanese retail price, which amounts to 70% off what you would pay at a Brick and mortar shop in the 'States. shopped to order, in his size.
    Absolutely slayed it. with quality Japanese made Denims at rock bottom prices. @aglose these are all yours buddy. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
