    1970s in THE vintage to find for older outdoors gear... The people involved in the backpacking boom of the early 70s are now discovering the joys of finding that stuff on Ebay. And Camp 7 is one of the best...

    For a whole in a down jacket, if you're keeping it, patching with duct tape is the best way to show off your dirtbagness. Otherwise, get some garment repair patch tape from REI or EMS or wherever. You might be able to find a color close to that if you look around. If you're selling it, just clearly photograph it, then put some scotch tape over it (so you don't lose any more down). before you ship it.

    Back home. Hit a few stores. Was a pretty good day.

    First off, a shoutout to @Ds13 for selling me a pair of Iron Rangers at cost. Already wearing em! Thanks again! :slayer:

    Interesting. I own a pair of their side-zips and they're pretty nice, at least by SW&D standards. Didn't even know they did suits. Anyway, ATLJon, they seem to be one of those random Yoox brands, and I think you'd probably get a better deal there than at your local Marshall's.

    Question: Since Samuel is now everywhere and anywhere, we recently hooked up with a cleaning service. Today, while cleaning the stove, I guess, she turned one of the burners on (inadvertently, I hope). So, for at least five hours, gas had been pouring into the house via an unlit burner. Thankfully, our cat and dog are alive, and the house is still here.

    But we should look for a new cleaning lady, yes?

    The feels when I leave a Patagonia down jacket behind cuz there's a line and I was running late for work...

    ...and it's not there when I go back 2 1/2 hours later.

    Man, that was depressing. Thought I was having a killer day - found some stuff much better than usual (a nice Corneliani blazer, Hickey Freeman suit in a nice Loro Piana super 130s material), checked it I-thought-thoroughly, and got home to find holes in it that I somehow missed.

    I did find a bunch of Pendleton

    and the jacket on the right there is pretty awesome. The green shirt ALSO has holes in it, despite being otherwise mint, which sucks.

    I also found a neat Filson, with what looked like a toothpaste stain (easily removable) on it:

    looking closer, though, I'm thinking maybe it's actually some kind of burn mark, and maybe not removable.

    Uggggh
