    I've said this before but......I picked up a super dated Brioni SC that felt like straight cardboard, cost, $2.95. I mean, it was really dated. Ended up selling it to a collector for $100 after like 10 minutes of putting it up on the bay. Always buy Brioni, even super dated stuff.



    This is the most selfish shit I've heard in a long time. What a fucking douche bag. We should round up a posse and go fuck this guy up. How fast can everybody make it out to Connecticut? Way to ruin it for everybody. :cloud:

    Hey, I don't know if any of you guys saw this, but it's a pretty cool series about making a bespoke coat. All the videos are at the top of the link. Check it out!


    edit: dudes who don't like art need not apply.

    Sounds like you already know, but I've put puffers straight through the wash, several times. Then in the dryer with clean tennis balls, comes out like new.

    Sorry man, that's got to be an awful experience. Let me know if I can help in any way.

    42R.

    @Cj52racers i tend to agree with your point about DB orphans. I'd probably be doing it myself (it fits) but it's unvented and I have issues with that.

    My pics look fine at home on my laptop but on my work computer they seem to have a weird dark tint to them that's almost greenish...are my pics screwed up???

    That sucks! Punks...

    If you're still thinking of selling, probably makes you think harder about it. With that $60k bonus, you could invest in making the new place an income property without going into debt. Start getting paid every month right off the bat, and cover part or all of your mortgage.

    they either can't afford or literally can't carry/fit in their house all the stuff. As eazye says, it's pure selfishness. Well, more pure Machiavellian ruthlessness. And yes it's as highly criminal as everything else this person does. And I'm on the move countering it. Don't fuck with lawyers.

    After the Sunday AE haul, I assured the wife that I would not be bringing home more shoes. So, what was I supposed to do when I found 15 pairs of AEs at my first two stops on Monday? She'll get over it. lol
