    This thread can move fast at times! Not sure how to quote exactly so this might be a little out of context, but @the2ndhandman please don't leave the thread. I like to see what you pick up that I pass on and get motivated(well more jealous really) when I don't go out for awhile and see what your pulling. Gets me back out there.

    As for selling your house and doing other things with the funds I have thought that many times. Still go back and forth on it. $60k I'd say no unless you're moving to a much more affordable area. I also think the stock market is WAY overpriced so I wouldn't go that route with the proceeds.

    Lastly can't wait to see the Anderson Sheppard haul. Lifetime I've found 2 pieces one moth ridden and one that fits me better than anything I've every found!

    EDIT: things I pass on / things I didn't realize where a thing

    Barrel: Awesome pictures! Was the Edo era park somewhat near the Hakone Onsen (I think it was a checkpoint)? If so, I went to the same one a few years back when we stayed at the onsen for a few days.

    He totally did and I got fucking clowned on cuz someone found a Vicuna "in my city" (coined by those wishing to antagonize) or whatever but like I called from day one, that shit never happened, and I'm not claiming I'm diddy running this city in anyway shape or form, I'm just saying I called bullshit on that post the second it was made.

    I still have a hundred posts to catch up on, and I was here this morning so I assume cool shit is coming, but I have to address this. I rarely if ever get involved in these discussions, but Jompso is one of the absolute best dudes on this forum (and there are many here that I consider friends). He's gone out of his way for me multiple times and he did not have to. No side motive, no nothing, just a stand up dude who loves well made clothing and lives the life.

    I wouldn't be where I am without him and a few others. /rant, and sorry for derailing, but it needed to be said.

    My experience with Kenzo is that it's pure 80s fashion, and I haven't been able to *give* it away. But, I've only ever found 2 pieces of it. I doubt I'd pick it up again unless it were just for me.
