    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I thrifted a pair of Red Wings :slayer:

    ...about two years past their peak popularity. :violin:

    Still I'm sure someone on ebay or whatever will want a nicely made pair of vintage boots.

    Here's the Filson shooz, size 11D (available). I put a coat of Obenauf's LP on there to even up some of the scuffs

    Decided to hit up just one store yesterday while apartment hunting and I found these. I looked up Visvim and paint splatter, and a few pairs of theirs with a finish of that sort came up. This pair, however, was not one of them. Let me just say that, shy of the splatter, these are badass boots. Really nice construction and materials throughout.

    Visvim Whymper size 10

    They really managed to get paint on every surface available... Anyone ever tackle a cleanup of this magnitude?

    Hardly worn at all, will clean up real nice.

    Still can't believe I found these, though I suspect they had just been put out (the tags had yesterday's date on them). There was one other pair of Visvim there, some lightweight shoes, but they were pretty worn. Figured those probably weren't worth it. Also figure they probably aren't there anymore either...

    RE yoox and deals (just saw this post) - I've picked up some really good stuff at yoox. I got a pair of cashmere blend Helmut Lang pants there for $40, and they're my favorite pair of pants. I've found a few other deals like that there, too, as well as ebay. I guess if the criteria for this thread is 'under $20' they don't cut it, but don't a lot of the thrifting finds come from consignment shops and not thrift stores?

    The other thread was a bit intense, like if you were to post a picture of something not so great and brag worthy, or ask a "dumb" question about something, it seems like Mofos would reach through your monitor and sucker punch you in the nuts. [​IMG]

    I am a fan of the genre from art house to naughty stuff. Miyazaki is my hero though.These days I watch whatever netflix throws my way. As usual some are good regardless of subgenre and some suck. I believe when I wrote that I was watching chrome shelled regios.
    And yes, any of the remaining shoes are available for cost + shipping + 5 bucks gas fund contribution.

    Oh yeah, Miyazaki is sick. I've recently got a copy of The Secret World of Arrietty. Planning on watching it this weekend. I've used to have every single movie he ever made, even with the ones he just produced or was the co-producer. The last anime I've watched on Netflix and finished was Soul Society. There was no real ending so it left me disappointed and I'm too lazy to read the manga.

    Do you have any black or brown cordovan shells in size 7 or 7.5? Thanks a bunch.

    I went a 1/2 day without finding anything good. So I end up with this Fosil western shirt. It's cool. It has pretty thick cotton and nice details. It's too bad the sleeves are about 2 to 3 inches too damn long!

    [​IMG]

    I almost bought this. They wanted $18 for it. No way.

    These were fun finds but weren't my cup of tea.
