    Great finds @Fueco and @capnwes!

    Out of curiosity, what are the measurements on the PRL?

    agree with @GMMcL i ran into an oxxford today, dated 85, woulda copped but for the holes... quite a nice jacket to put it mildly.

    i agree with @SpooPoker i won't lie i get chub when I'm in a rack and smell mothballs. [​IMG]

    some clothes are art, or at least artisanal. can't remember where but i've read clothing referred to as personal architecture. there is much to this statement.

    that's not even getting into the cultural artifacts that some clothing represents. vintage denim, t's, etc etc isn't just hipster fodder, it's pieces of history and examples of industrial art. to me, the very best t-shirts operate as propaganda, wedding the wearer to the content and putting a face to a movement...

    there are things that i've found that are hard to part with. and i'm a cynic and not in the least a hoarder!


    ALSO: the jacket slasher struck my town. there was a rlpl purple label db blazer with the tag torn out. it wasn't to deter flippers tho, i believe it was a message to the thrift pricers to stop whoring labels. as if.

    Yeah, I hit Rendezvous this evening ... and I probably will tomorrow night as well. Those ribs do not mess around.

    Went back for that Greenfield suit... On closer inspection it needed a cleaning, so left it behind for $25. With cleaning that'd be about $50 invested... Meh.

    I DID find a nice RL Rugby navy cotton pea jacket / sweater though. :)

    Shoutout to all of the members that have showed me tie love. I have given up 10 fold what I have received but that's all because I asked for it. That's an amazing quality of this group. I asked for quality ties in exchange for mass amounts of eBay fodder, and you all delivered and are yet to deliver as some deals are still pending.

    This group is amazing.

    Thank you all,
    Jonathan

    Fucking Rendezvous is the bomb! I stayed across the bridge in West Memphis, AR, for a few weeks and ate at Rendezvous and Ruth's Chris more times that I care to remember. Thrifting in Memphis is an exercise in patience. You will cover MANY miles. It has been many moons since I have shopped there. I remember Amvets because I bought a shiiteload of ties there. They keep ties in the back room as well, so be really nice to the workers and they will let you search through them. Also, do not be afraid to do a little good-natured haggling with the women.

    Speaking of food... I discovered that there's a Waffle House about 15 miles from home.

    That's too far. Here, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Waffle House.

    If you would like a cross section of the more interesting subsections of society, yes. And the foods pretty good.
