    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Passed on those shoes. "BOBSKAM" is the brand, possibly a really old vintage? I'm sure they will be around next time I go.

    What I did get, not available because i'll probably wear it myself:

    In the field. Anyone know what I'm looking at here? Barmax by Bruno piattelli.

    Women's? Something butchered for short arms?

    Okay, hopefully this works this time. This is my first day thrifting with intent. Not great, but a few nice pieces for me and some stuff I might be able to make a few bucks on.

    J.Crew wool blend lined coat. (What is this style called?) L

    100% wool "Made in Britain" Chesterfield. Took a chance on this one. Couldn't find any maker labels. 40R

    HSM suit that actually fits me and has cuffs to be let out.

    A few things I got over the last couple weeks. Most were in my wife's car and I forgot about them.

    I know shirts are a pain in the ass, but the Talbotts are new and the Pendletons are interesting. See below.


    Sorry so many of the pics are turned weird. I am trying to get these uploaded so I can go home. EVERYTHING (except the book) is available.

    Yeah, I usually avoid as well. Didn't know it was 50% off today until I got there and saw the store was picked clean. Only thing halfway decent were a pair of Nantucket reds from Murrays Toggery. Size 34 if anyone wants them.

    I don't quite understand the full story, but there was some kind of water leak in the apartment next door. Spotted the clean-up crew tossing long forgotten items from the basement, went down and cleaned up for myself.

    Must have been an interesting dude. Picked up those New Balance 993s, a petrified wood collection, some cool old photo negatives of Seattle, an exotic feather collection, a stack of Numismatics club magazines from the 60s (no coins unfortunately...), and.... :

    Kind of rare for the thread. Both of these are within these 2 weeks and 40 miles apart in different stores. D^2 Outfit not for large people.
