    So guys, I want to be Jon Snow for Halloween. And I want it to be legit. Has anyone seen any gnarly, large in size and presense fur coats that they can snag on the cheap and ship to me? Hoping for real fur, but fake is fine if it's black. If it's real I can dye it, so it doesn't matter. I've been looking around here and can't find anything suitable except for the one market at $199.99. [​IMG] Obviously I will pay for shipping and a six-pack!

    Also looking for black leather top and black leather gloves and boots!

    Nice! Did the same thing with my HSA account last year. Needed new glasses so I bought prescription Oliver Peoples.

    Finally back from a week and a half of 14-20 hour days for my company's annual conference. Lots to catch up on, but a couple things:

    1. Still in severe need of a plain navy suit, FF pants, full canvas. Slim 40R.

    2. Also need FF trous in various shades of tan and brown. Love Incotex.

    Didn't get to thrift while I was out, but here's a thrift fit pic with a bonus

    God, I want to like that so many more times than this site allows. Did you rap the dude's part in 'Shoop' to them? I probably would have and then they'd probably look at me like I was a lunatic and then not let me take a photo with them. :(

    True story. When I was like 11/12 years old, I was REALLY into Salt N Pepa's 'Very Necessary' album. I played the tape so much that eventually it wore out and I had to buy a new one. I grabbed the old tape and went into my mom's craft supply area and turned my Salt N Pepa tape into a necklace. I wonder if it's still at either of my parent's places?
