    I'll get caught up on the thread tomorrow, but wanted to share the updated gift exchange list so everyone could double-check. I'll keep it open until tomorrow and post a last call before enrollment ends. If you need to get your address/donation sent, please do so, especially those that don't post regularly/hovering around that 100 post minimum. Special thanks to those that went above and beyond on the donations, really great of you and didn't go unnoticed!

    As a reminder, because my PM was a bit ambiguous, the donation does NOT go into my pocket, but to StyleForum's charity drive in December that will benefit The Ronald McDonald House.

    If you'd like to be a part of it this year, there's still time! Get in touch with me via PM!

    I called Jeff and spoke with him today. He said the flag is definitely from 1896-1898 and would send me a valuation later on. (#impatientlywatiing)



    Don't take this the wrong way, but I am continually impressed that you score so much good shit in Sweden. Aside from Hans, theres not really a consistent European thrifter other than you. Kudos on ya!

    I know the thrift stores are crazy packed leading up to Halloween, but we all need to do our part in keeping the good stuff out of the hands of costume shoppers!

    Liberated a recent Lanvin shirt. Available. size 41/16

    I would like to keep in the $175-$225 range
    I'm a medium in Filson (42" chest)
    Temps 0-40 (but will layer under 25ish). No wet, just cold.

    Would appreciate any leads on a good deal.

    I normally do just 1 fold, and then press it carefully with an Iron. 2 folds always looks too bulky.

    Who was our resident Toy Expert on here? @PLaydice ? Copped a few "vintage" GI Joe / Cobra toys awhile back. There's some pieces missing, but I was wondering if that person would be interested in them.

    Those old CPOGs were cool and popular with hunters because they were both warm and kept scent out pretty well. You just had to wash a new one if you were using it for something outside of its intended use because they were filled with some kind of charcoal that would get on you and your clothes when you first put it on.
