    I was staring at that dude's denim jacket the whole time. Anyone else?

    Back home after one last quick run. I did well with it.

    The only time I pick up Cole Haan is when they're new and $4.

    Ties on the rack were shit, but ties in the box waiting to be put out were decent. Chipp, current BB, Dunhill Tailors. The DT might be my favorite thrifted tie of all time.

    I agree. I have a couple of 50-80 year old cast iron skillets we use all the time. We use the big Le Creuset Dutch oven a lot too. But, it's almost too big.

    Does this look like Kate Upton or Pam Anderson? Tags were supposedly "removed," which was an additional red flag.

    Thrifts are pretty slow. Had to do a lot of digging but I managed to uncover a few scraps.

    Oldest 5 Brother I've found. So mad that this is a little too slim for me :fu:

    And I'm a 42 but there is no way I can fit into this. Guessing this is from the 20's judging by the label style and fonts. Am I correct in assuming the "I" is for University of Illinois?

    That's definitely the right I for the UofI, but curious as to the choice of red for the sweater.

    also @Nataku those Red Wing engineer boots are money. Sold three pairs for over $200 each.

    The country it's being sold from isn't generally considered sketchy [​IMG]

    You could try washing in cold, and when you pull them out of the wash, hit them with a warm iron while they are inside out and stretch them back out.

    Thanks for the info! Yeah, I was hesitant at first because of the size (and they were priced up) but the last pair I sold from the same guy (size 13) did well so I grabbed em.


    I wish! It's a Piero Guidi Magic Circus which turns out to be way less valuable than I initially thought :(
