    I found Mega Man X, Super Mario World, Super Mario All-Stars and a couple of Star Wars SNES games recently together at a thrift. Of course, I bought them all.

    The Japanese team work really well in squads. but i join foreign servers to speak English with my squad sometimes. savagely fun. don't mind dropping the occasional T-bag also.

    @vexco if you got it? we can squad up. or any other member i know on here who wants to make other people throw shit at their TV.

    I paid full retail for a pair of those Le Chameau side zip leather lined waders a few winters back and have never regretted it. Absolutely killer boots.

    Yesterday I was looking at a rail of mediocre ties when a woman came out of a back room, asked if I liked ties and then brought out a hanger with more.
    Got three Duchamp ties in perfect condition, and a Massimo Dutti one that's BNWT.

    [​IMG]

    Does anyone know if there's a difference between black or blue labels on Duchamp?
    I think I've only ever seen blue, but someone selling one on ebay makes a point of listing "rare blue label".

    Also, and this is something I'm keeping, a very nice cherry/burgundy briefcase, by Gianfranco Novi, of Florence.
    Has a few scrapes, but that's just nice patina.
    Someone has done a repair to the handle with two philips head screws, but I can do a better job.

    The day before, I'd found another briefcase. No label or manufacturers name, but brand new, never used, with key.
    Don't think it's the best quality leather, with a heavy grain to it, but not bad.

    [​IMG]

    I also went back to where I found the Jeremy Paxman suit last week, and picked up two orphaned suit jackets in the same size.
    One Hackett with unusual sleeve buttons, and the other Aquascutum.
    Such a pity the trousers are missing from the Aquascutum one as it's beautiful.
    Still, could work well on it's own.

    I'm looking for a steer as to whether you think these are genuine. I bought a Kiton square on eBay and the seller has got in touch to say that she also has the following. Price for the one I bought was £25 and I may be able to talk her down if I buy a few more. I'd probably be keeping or could proxy if anyone is particularly keen. I only bought the one today so only have pics to go on at the moment. What do you think?

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I've been looking for a MegaManX cart for a LONG time. My brother and I played the hell out of that game when we were kids. So far I have all 3 of the big Nintendos... NES, SNES, and N64. I have a few carts for each, but want to bulk up my collection... Lately I have seen 0 cartridges, and the last console I found was about 1.5 months ago. Mint NES for $30 at Value Village. Bought that shit so fast, but no power cable : (

    Maybe I should add a note in my sig like "Looking for Vintage Nintendo Games / Consoles!". If you ever find any more, let me know. I would trade major Zegnas and shit for good Megaman / Bomberman cartridges.

    Ironically I was talking to a younger lady here at the hospital and she stated she has the original grey Gameboy still in box...

    Back atcha @eazye . dude is a pleasure to deal with. knows a fair deal and doesn't mess around.
    not only did he get a good deal, he also paid instantly, allowing Mrs Vader to freeup our paypal earnings and save the Family economy for this month. so a BIG thanks for that. [​IMG]

    Your box is taped up and ready to ship in the morning. [​IMG]
