    White jeans? The blues are the more classic representation of the look. Hopefully you're already working on the 'stache.

    Thriftmas and thriftfits!

    first, sending to Sweden gotta suck! Stylewise im rather casual, I rarely wear a suit, maybe due to the fact that I dont own one!(hint)
    I like updated workwear, "heritage" clothing etc. I hate slim fit. My measurements are in my profile.

    Im visiting my gfs parents in a small coastal town.

    Can't agree with this. I was hit in a rental car by someone 1.5 years ago, and it was a huge hassle going through insurance. If I had gotten liability coverage, I would've just dropped off the keys and been on my way. Much less stress for a few bucks more.

    Certainly can be. It's a major city, so you tend to get that cold feeling sometimes. That said, I love the city and you'll find all types within. Lots to see and do, so if anyone ever has the opportunity, take it!

    Working on a few photos, so I thought I'd throw this on here. It's been on the radio most of the year, but I do like the song. Thought you guys might enjoy hearing German that isn't folk music. He's a German singer. Everyone in the audience is cooler than me, especially the blonde @1:25. I'll try to get a few finds posted tonight.

    Edit: It's called Wolke 4, "Cloud 4." In German, "Wolke sieben" (cloud seven) is the equivalent of the English "cloud nine." He's singing about his preference to be on cloud 4 rather than cloud 7 as you won't fall as far as if you're on cloud 7. I don't know if what I just wrote made any sense.

    For Thriftmas:


    Small to sw&d medium sized outerwear would be cool. 8.5 narrow shoes would be neat too but those are hard to find. Anything sw&d in my sizes listed on my profile would be super cool regardless. A handwritten story about me finding an entire rack of vicuna made by Loro Piana, Kiton, every Saville Row maker, and somehow, haggar, at a thrift is a requirement for my gift. No exceptions. Thanks in advance.

    Well, you already had insurance. That's my point. Most insurance covers rentals, and even some credit card companies if you book with their card. Your insurance company giving you a hard time sucks, but that's not reason to buy rental insurance when it's a redundant service in the first place.

    Xmas exchange. As others have stated, for me personal touch is the most appreciated.

    Thrift-mas Buddy:

    Please don't stress at all about what to send. Whatever you might find interesting/cool/appealing/appalling... clothing related or not. Sizes in my profile, if it is clothing/accessories.

    Thank you for participating in the exchange, and being willing to donate your time, effort, money, and cool stuff to a fun exchange. :slayer:

    I'm not at all a bike expert.

    But there are some nice features on that bike. The seat alone (even in its worn/cracked state) could get you more than half the money back. I know the vintage/refurbed bike market is pretty big in Louisville, I'm sure it is similarly popular in some parts of NYC.
