    the ones that have come up on the gw website have actually had forest service patches etc on em. of course, not true thrift... sweet coat.

    also, i actually had one for awhile made of denim, that was the levi's x filson collab. also a good variant.

    I'm more of a pop-up/picture book type of guy, but I guess I'll start reading.

    Just to start off, the denim is like $950 a pop, but more importantly, that is why I was so surprised. Because denim heads are definitely not his target market. So the fact that he went out and was sure to have his denim constructed in such an amazing manner just shows how dedicated this man is to his craft. Everything he touches has to be the best and it's nice to see that such an easily overlooked garment from the fashion houses doesn't go over looked by him and that he did his homework.

    No. I like them plain with butter with sugar free syrup. I know what's the point? I'm eating at Waffle House! But, too much sugar just makes me sleepy. Its probably my ADHD acting in the reverse of most people.

    I think at this point, Mr. Ford is just plugging up holes in his men's wear offerings. Selvedge denim, check. A bit late to the party, I might add. lolz

    Apparently all of you. I was wondering why it was uncomfortable to sit.

    The thread was en Fueco, but Fueco was en the big city... Quick coffee stop at my favorite hipster joint...

    Any flippers in the Greater Toronto Area?
    I have a bunch of shirts I bought over the last few years but are too loose fitting and I don't feel like having them tailored. Only looking for like 60 cad for the collection of 27 shirts of which I would have paid about 10 each.
    3 Zegna, 6 BB, 1 canali, 2 Armani, 2 Burberry, 1 Eddie Bauer, 2 Calvin Klein, 1 tommy bahama, 1 Harry Rosen bespoke, 1 Eton tux shirt, 1 boss, 5 polo and 1 Paul smith

    They are like 16-17 neck

    Here's some of them:

    I've never sold any clothing in my life but I'd imagine you'd be able to do better than the $2.25

    Ok. Here are the pics from today's Estate sale AND a few others from the weekend in Oklahoma City. OKC was not that great, but we mostly hit estate sales instead of thrifts.

    We did score at one estate sale. A lawyer died and they were closing the office and I got a TON of office and lawyerly stuff that isn't all that cool except I saved a ton of money.

    For example, I bought 6 inch three ring binders because they are outrageously expensive and with litigation, there is always TONS of stuff that has to be put into binders. The really good D Ring binders with locking clips and heavy covers are about $40 each! I bought 15 of them for $2 each.

    I got lots of other boring office things (paper, pens, tabs, sticky notes, evidence tabs, rubber stamps, etc for about 5% of retail. True thrift prices.

    AND lots of Cotton Bond paper. Have you priced cotton bond paper? Its like $50 for 500 sheets. I got it for $4. AND a bunch of ink for my fountain pens.

    But, here is the more exciting stuff. Some odd stuff, some $$$$, and some ????

    (All available, by the way) [​IMG]

    I am not sure about this. Its a Levi's repair and customize Kit. I don't if this was a freebie sometime, but it was Levi's and interesting and it was cheap.

    Retail is only 460. I paid more for my Alfred dunhills. Almost picked up a pair at ford in vegas but they only had boot cut. I thought they were ok for the price. The pair I had were made in the usa coudnt figure out who made them.
