    Heat resistant gloves would be a nice addition, though if they existed, they were lost before I ever got a chance to use them. And yes, a cleaner you run through to keep sediment build up to a minimum. Super straight forward machine. Fill with water, turn on preheat, wait til light turns off...

    We used a Jiffy when I worked for Brooks Brothers to steam garments. It worked like a charm. Jiffy makes commercial grade stuff, not sure about Rowenta, but really was impressed with Jiffy, and we used it almost daily for years without any issues. Just don't overfill the water.

    The top badge is a Marine Corps combat aircrew badge. So the guy that belonged to was not a pilot, but an enlisted Marine. Officers/pilots never received them. The bottom badge I dont recognize from my time with the Marines. So maybe it was mixed in with his stuff or he collected from other...

    Agreed. Just a tidbit of information for the group regarding BB shoes. Going forward, BB no longer has a contract with Allen Edmonds or Alden. The newest line is "1818" they are pretty terrible because they wanted a low price point, entry level shoe ($298) for mass appeal. They're made in...

    Gamefair is awesome. As a former Game Warden, I love the "Approved by Game Conservancy" tag!

    One stop, two pops. Faherty fishscale batik trunks for personal, still online. Stubbs & Wootten mens slippers 10.5. Simple, but dirt cheap and on my wishlist. Wish they fit.

    Same. Especially if a SI patch is visible. Sold a pair of cotton SI pants with no visible exterior logos for 15x what I paid and quick.

    Thanks, John. Completely respect and appreciate your insight and knowledge. It is a weird one for sure. They're filthy , gonna give 'em the treatment and see what happens. Maybe they'll magically become shell again.

    Sword of Omens give us shell sight beyond sight Shit, I don't know anymore. Model number and sole, rest of the shoe feels like shell and everything is identical on the interiors. Maybe it's a unicorn and I need to get a refund from Hanover..oh wait.

    I thought the same at first, but I believe they are shell and @silverwarebandit is right, it's polish build-up.Same model # on both and unless someone resoled with these soles...but I understand and appreciate the thread skepticism. Edit: who knows then?

    Shell Hanover LB Sheppard Signatures loafer (Model 2500) 9.5 D/B, available Milanese brand I've never seen "Cardinale", but insanely comfortable for personal. No size/model marking, only a handwritten letter "M" on the tongue. MTO maybe?

    Snuck out for morning coffee and planned a thrift stop. She would normally admonish me for stopping at a thrift when we have morning plans, but pulled these Raen Remmy's $1.99 for her and she was less mad.

    Sounds good to me. When I'm back at homebase we can make that happen. Store was busy and just so happened to check shorts where nobody was looking.
