    Undetermined actually. The freakin' size tags on both shoes peeled off!

    They're a women's colorway. If I had to guess I'd say women's size 9 or somewhere around there.

    Yes. I'm also holding off posting some cool stuff in case I decide to send it to my thriftsmasee. Thriftsmasee probably isn't going to catch on right?

    @SpooPoker Is this the Versace I am looking for? Need to research these to help keep them all straight.

    Button down, long sleeve, black, 60/40 cotton/silk, Metal Medusa head top button and two zipper pulls. The hologram sticker is on the other side of the one tag.

    RE: Gift exchange. This is my first year so I've been going back and reading posts to see what I can figure out. I have some ideas. I'm going to attempt to make one thing. Wish me luck.

    [​IMG]

    Hello. I feel like I don't post a lot of clues as to what I'm into. Sorry bout that. Basically, I wear casual button down shirts(regular medium/slim large in the standard J Crew/mall sizes)/sweaters/jackets/jeans or slim chinos/boots most of the time. My sweater game is weak right now as some fawking moths ate my favorite two sweaters from last year. Also, I think I'm solidly a 34 waist now so all of my 33 pants are just hanging out until I get my ass back to the gym. If you could find a Beavis & Butthead 'Tommy Pullmyfinger' shirt, I would wear it. I also wear CM stuff and appreciate the hell out of it, i just have less excuses to wear it. I sell stuff on eBay too so if you run out of time, i'm a-okay with some fodder. Hope this helps if you were having trouble. NOW YOU BETTER IMPRESS ME. jklol

    Once upon a time in a different era of SF's life, those were unaffectionately referred to as band-aid colored shoes.
    Yep...and this is as good a time as any for one more reminder to UPDATE YOUR DANG PROFILES WITH YOUR SIZES AND WANTS, GUYS!!

    No shit... I had to search through about the last 500 posts just to piece together a basic idea of size. Hopefully the stuff fits.

    I find these '90s REI fleeces everywhere in the Pacific Northwest. Worth picking up? Flippable? For the most part I've thought of them to be kind of a bad transitionary period between the great `70s-era technical clothing and the modern stuff.

    I kind of like them... They remind me of the time when I worked at REI (95-97) with the THAW numbers and color codes. They were generally well made, and hold up reasonably well. The fit leaves something to be desired. By the way, my mannequin is a 1990s REI model. I think the newer ones they have in stores are stick figures like the hipsters they're trying to sell to these days.

    They don't sell for much, but if you can get them super cheap and they're in excellent condition, I'd pick them up. Also, the print patterns are desired by some (see the first of the two Sequel fleeces I posted above.
