    Can i drop in a BIG BIG Thanks to our resident Southern Gentleman. @ReubenR ,
    for sending some Bill's Khakis, and some super nice socks. for my friend. you sir, are awesome. [​IMG]


    Happy Birthday @SpooPoker . enjoy yourself. [​IMG]


    And if anybody has a N3-B in olive, with quality zippers in a 40? i have a buyer for you for a quick flip. - a request from the guy who is teaching me welding. he will pay up to $100 for a nice one. army issue preferred, but hey, i can look at it and know if he will like it. slight wear and tear may be ok.

    Couple of cool thing this week:

    Pendleton blue blazer in 44L, minty
    [​IMG]

    Pendleton XL jacket with surprise back
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Pendleton medium vest
    [​IMG]

    Zegna "Soft" shirt that lives up to the name
    [​IMG]

    Inis Crafts sweater, made in Ireland
    [​IMG]


    But then I thought, why not check craigslist? Who knows what might be there?

    Well, it turns out there were some things there. Things like the NWT Filson vest for
    $30

    [​IMG]

    Also two more Filson jackets (one a red plaid Mackinaw), advertised (and based on the pictures, likely) NWOT,
    $130 for the pair
    Going to pick those up tomorrow. Not quite thrift prices, but acceptable.

    I'm not sure what you mean by dibs. If all you mean is the dude got first shot at something and still paid standard store price and the money went to the store then maybe I agree.
    But if it was a true back room deal -- stuff was specifically set aside, dude paid less and money went to the manager's pocket then it's illegal in about four ways I can think of off the top of my head.





    Look like some smart ties. Would also be interested in a green one if you find it when you go.
    ATTENTENTION THRIFTA CLAUS
    I need green ties, esp grenadine (yeah, I know). And linen ties too.

    Happy belated birthday big poppa.

    i'm sure i don't know the details of the transaction... nor do i care, frankly. i'm not the thrift police, and for all i know it was as straight-up as such an arrangement can be.

    Is it the kevlar and cotton mixed or the kevlar lined?

    If the latter, you don't really need it unless you ride. But if the former, I would rock it. It's a conversational piece. Good shit if you can kop on cheap.
